Are you a victim of identity theft?

Three basic steps to be taken IMMEDIATELY:

FIRST, contact the fraud departments at each of the three major credit bureaus. Tell them that you're an identity theft victim and request that a "fraud alert" be placed in your file.

  • Equifax
    To report FRAUD, call 1-800-525-6285
  • Experian
    To report FRAUD, call 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742)
  • Trans Union
    To report FRAUD, call 1-800-680-7289

SECOND, contact the security departments at all of the creditors for any accounts that have been fraudulently accessed or opened.

THIRD, file a report with your local police or the police where the identity theft took place. If your wallet is lost or stolen, also call and cancel all of your credit cards.
