What To Do if You Have Been a Victim of Identity Theft
Four things to do as soon as possible when you discover you have been a victim of identity theft:
  • Review your credit reports and place a fraud alert on them (see below).
  • Close the accounts that you know or believe have been tampered with or opened fraudulently.
  • File a report with your local police department or the police in the community where the identity theft took place.
  • File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at 877-ID-THEFT (438-4338)
