    ID Theft Info Sheet

    • Make a list of all the accounts, cards, loans, etc. that you know you have. This will be useful as you work through the process of recovering your identity.  

       

    • Notify local law enforcement of the activity/crime (note: It’s best to file a police report for fraudulent activity or identity theft in the district the crime occurred.)

       

    • Close other accounts if your SSN, in conjunction with your identification and/or name and address, has been compromised.

       

    • File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-438-4338 or visit the identity theft section at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov

       

    • The ‘Report Identity Theft’ section of the www.ftc.gov website provides possible recovery steps.

       

    • Notify the credit bureaus in writing of the fraudulent activity and request a copy of your credit report from each credit-reporting agency.  Verify the information is accurate on each one.  Ask that your name be removed.

     

    • Contact the US Postal Inspector at 800-275-8777.  It is not uncommon for perpetrators to change your address so that they receive credit cards, bills, etc.

     

    • Contact your local DMV (Department of Motorized Vehicles) to put a hold on your driver’s license to prevent anyone from having another driver’s license issued in your name.  You may want to request a new driver’s license number.

       

    • Contact ChexSystems, Inc. at 1-800-428-9623 and request a free consumer report to determine if a new bank account has been opened in your name and social security number.

     

    • Continue to verify all account activity, reconcile monthly bank statements, debit card and ACH transactions.

     

    • Be aware of any e-mails that may result from the thief asking for additional personal or financial information.  No financial institution or reputable company will ask you to send private information by email.  Never assume public email is secure.
