Identity theft

Stolen identity information can be used to open fraudulent credit accounts and services, hide immigration status, or conceal a criminal record.

 

Contact all of the credit bureaus used to process consumer credit:

 

Place a fraud alert on your file at each of the credit bureaus.

    • This statement deters anyone who attempts to fraudulently use your identity in the future.
    • After the statement is on file, any future credit applications are placed in review until the Credit Department and the inquiring business contacts you to verify the new account authorization.
    • You must change the information at the bureaus if you move or change employers.

 

Protect yourself going forward

  • Request copies of your credit report from each of the credit bureaus.
  • Review the inquiries on the credit reports to be sure they all came from a credit check you remember.
  • Contact any unrecognized businesses to check if an unauthorized account was opened in your name.
