One way to protect yourself is to order copies of your credit report once a year to ensure they are accurate. You can call each of the three national credit-reporting agencies, because each may contain different aspects of your credit history, or you can contact the Annual Credit Report Service for one free credit report each year.
If you have been denied credit in the past 60 days, the credit-reporting agency that sent the report to your prospective creditor must provide you with a copy of the report for free. However, it will not be sent automatically, so you have to request a copy from the credit-reporting agency.

Take action if you are a victim:
- Financial fraud is a crime; call your local police department.
- Contact the fraud units of all three credit bureaus. Ask them to "flag" your account,
which tells creditors that you are a victim of identity fraud. Also, add a victim's
statement to each of your credit bureau reports that asks creditors to contact you
in person to verify all applications made in your name. Call the fraud units of
the credit bureaus at:
- TransUnion Fraud Assistance Department (800) 680-7289
- Equifax Fraud Assistance Department (800) 525-6285
- Experian Fraud Assistance Department (888) 397-3742
- Call the Federal Trade Commission's ID Theft hotline at (877) 438-4338. The hotline is staffed by counselors trained to help ID theft victims. Check out the FTC Web Site, which includes an Identity Theft Affadavit to help simplify the process of clearing up accounts opened by an identity thief.
- Notify your banks. They can help you obtain new account numbers for all of your checking, savings, and other accounts. Be sure to pick a new PIN number for your ATM and debit cards. Close all of your credit card accounts and open with new account numbers.
- Notify the Postal Inspector if you suspect mail theft - a felony.
- Depending on your situation, you may want to contact the Social Security Administration to get a new Social Security number. Their telephone number is (800) 772-1213. You also may want to contact your telephone, long distance, water, gas, and electrical companies to alert them that someone may try to open an account in your name.
- Finally, make sure to maintain a log of all the contacts you make with authorities regarding the matter. Write down each person's name, title, and phone number in case you need to re-contact them or refer to them in future correspondence.
