Are worried about how to protect your identity? If so, we have put together some helpful information for you below:
The best way to protect yourself is to keep your information private. Be sure that you know why your personal information is required and how it will be used before sharing it with anyone. Keep your personal information out of messages like email, text, or phone calls.
Take time to review your credit report. The law requires that you are able to get a free copy of your credit report annually. You can get this from the three major credit bureaus — Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You can also stagger your report requests from each agency throughout the year. Remember, always look for any activity or inquiries that you are unable to explain.Visit annualcreditreport.com or call 1.877.322.8228
If you suspect someone has taken your identity, you should immediately contact one of the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion to request a fraud alert be placed on your file. By doing this, you will make it more difficult for someone other than you to open new accounts or make any changes to your existing accounts.
