That could definitely be an issue.  Can you sign up for one of those privacy protection programs?  I use one through my bank (Bank of America)…it’s not super cheap I think $13 a month but they track your credit etc and if there’s anything fishy they’ll alert you.  I would suggest this since your personal info may be floating around…GL! Hopefully nothing happens!

Woah! That’s scary and good for you for thinking of that. I would definitely keep an eye on everything in the next few months and keep a watch out. Any records you have from the company (receipts, info, etc) would be great so you can make sure you have enough if something does happen.

I read up a little on what I could find through Namebirdie.com, and first and foremost it appears the site was protected by Hackersafe and Verisign, which I think means that your information would be securely transmitted to their website. However, they would probably still have all your information sitting in a database somewhere (this might sound offsetting, but when you think about it, companies like amazon.com and any other place you buy from online have this info in a database as well) and so I think the more important question you need to ask them is what happens to your personal information and will it be protected. I’m sure you very likely had to sign some kind of contract or indicate that you read their terms of use, which probably said what they would do with your information after your transaction with them and potentially what would happen to it if the company shut down.

If it were me, I would email them back and get something in writing saying that they have either completely destroyed any record they had/have of your personal information, or that your information is securely protected and get the details of how it’s protected and how you can be sure you are safe.

If you are still scared about ID theft and someone using your credit you can always freeze your credit.  If you dont need to use your credit for anything soon it may be a good idea anyways.  Basically it keeps anyone from using your credit, period… If you want to use it you have to call and have it unblocked whick can be a pain in the butt becuase you have to go through a security process, but it keeps you safe and unathorized spenders out!

So does anyone know that namebirdie actually has id theft issues?  Or is it al just speculation so far?

you could always try a 30 day free trial of a program just to monitor your credit for a month, maybe keep the program if you like it, there’s tons of them out there that are free for a month

I was a little concerned about this too, so I did a search on google and found a lawsuit on the maryland court website that shows missnowmrs sued namebirdie.  I guess that’s why their gone!!  It looks like missnowmrs has sued a few companies actually…

Agree to the terms of use and then do a company search for "blue bird llc" (missnowmrs’s company name) to see what i am talking about.

I wouldn’t trust this company!!!!! Namebirdie has red flags everywhere.

I’ve seen a number of posts warning people about them.  What I have been reading is that they are NOT with the BBB.  I also read the couple the started Namebirdie have NO background in this business they have tried to make so many businesses work and CAN”T. Now they are divorcing and up to their neck in debt.  They currently live in LA and strapped for cash. So I believe desperate times will call for desperate measures . Anyone who has used this company should watch their all accts.  My source is looking into the actual names of this couple.
