A method for automatically establishing an identification theft recovery service and/or credit fraud recovery service from a company that provides such services relating to identification theft and/or credit fraud, when an individual purchases an item and receives a record of the purchase such as a receipt, which may or may not be related to the protection of an individual's identification or against credit fraud. The identification theft recovery service and/or credit fraud recovery service is automatically initiated upon the purchase of the item without the individual registering or taking any further action. The individual need only keep a proper record of the purchase, and if the individual's identification is stolen or misappropriated and/or becomes the victim of credit fraud, the individual can provide the proper record to receive that company's identification theft recovery services and/or credit fraud recovery services.
