This Bizarro cartoon features a man about to be executed by firing squad and the military man in full uniform, complete with saber, asks if he has any last requests. He says, “I’d like to update my Facebook status.” That would probably be changing it to “deceased.” But even as a memorial page, his profile would still be out there, leaving him open to ID theft.
As a Facebook memorial page, there is a lot of personal information that could be lifted by the bad guys. It then becomes fodder to create a fake identity that causes problems for the real family of this person.
Better he should have said, “Get eClosure to shut down my Facebook account for me.” Although, that isn’t really funny.
eClosure.co is a service that helps families shut down the emails and social media accounts of the deceased to avoid identity theft and prevent painful reminders of the loss through unexpected appearances on social media.
Even if the family does not have passwords, with a death certificate and a form of ID, for $150 eClosure can take care of closing Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Yahoo Mail, Microsoft Mail and other accounts. While each provider has their own set of requirements to close accounts, eClosure knows how to navigate each company’s settings to promptly secure the dead person’s digital assets. They can take care of everything within 48 hours.
Don’t let a loved one’s identity become stolen. Find out more by visiting eClosure.co.
