To report identity theft, immediately do these three things!

  • First: Contact the fraud departments of each of the three major credit bureaus and report that your identity has been stolen. Ask that a "fraud alert" be placed on your file and that no new credit be granted without your approval.

      Report Fraud
    Equifax (800) 525-6285
    Experian (888) 397-3742
    Trans Union (800) 680-7289

     
  • Second: For any accounts that have been fraudulently accessed or opened, contact the security departments of the appropriate creditors or financial institutions. Close these accounts. Put passwords (not your mother's maiden name) on any new accounts you open.
  • Third: File a report with your local police or the police where the identity theft took place. Get a copy of the report in case the bank, credit card company, or others need proof of the crime later on.

Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for assistance: The FTC is the federal clearinghouse for complaints by victims of identity theft. Although the FTC does not have the authority to bring criminal cases, the Commission assists victims of identity theft by providing them with information to help them resolve the financial and other problems that can result from identity theft. The FTC also may refer victim complaints to other appropriate government agencies and private organizations for further action.

You may file a complaint with the FTC by contacting the FTC's Identity Theft Hotline: (877) 438-4338; TDD (202) 326-2502
