Founded in 2001 by Jeb Tyler, Craig Jerabeck, and Jason Guck, 5LINX is a multi-level marketing company that offers identity protection services. The company was built around the principles of vision, integrity, opportunity, freedom, and success.
5LINX offers both antivirus and antispyware software to help protect its customers from identity theft.
5LINX scans thousands of websites and monitors numerous chat rooms and forums to ensure that its customers' personal and financial information is not being bought or sold. The company also offers social security monitoring and change of address monitoring.
5LINX offers up to $1 million in identity theft insurance, which covers expense reimbursement, lost wallet assistance, and identity restoration costs. Lost wages, travel expenses, replacement of documents, and attorney fees are all eligible for reimbursement. In addition to helping identity theft victims recover financial losses, 5LINX also appoints an expert to provide support and advice throughout the restoration process.
In the event of identity theft, 5LINX does not provide its customers with an attorney to represent them or help restore their identity to pre-theft status.
5LINX does not offer credit monitoring, which is a very important service when it comes to identity theft prevention.
