ID Theft

Are you the victim of a fraud? Is someone else using your identification? To place a flag on your name so that others may not obtain further credit in your name, contact the following companies by phone:
  • (TRW) Experian – 1-800-422-4879 or 1-800-682-7654.
  • Transunion – 1-800-680-7289.
  • Equifax – 1-800-685-5000.

Tips


  • Never give your social security number to anyone over the phone.
  • Review all credit card statements each month and compare them to all receipts.
  • Always get a call back number on suspicious calls regarding any and all utility companies. Compare these numbers with the numbers on your bill.
  • Do not allow store employees to write your credit card number on your check. They can only document the type of credit card and year of expiration.
