What If You or a Family Member Is a Victim of ID Theft?

If someone steals your name, address, credit card, here is some critical information to limit the damage: 

Cancel your cards. Keep a record of all your credit and debit card numbers, as well as the telephone number of each card issuer handy so you know who to call.

File a police report in the jurisdiction where your things were stolen. This proves to credit providers that you were diligent, and is a first step toward starting an investigation.

Call the three national credit reporting organizations immediately. Place a fraud alert on your name and Social Security number. The numbers are: Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; Experian (formerly TRW): 1-888-397-3742; and Trans Union: 1-800-680-7289.

Contact the Social Security Administration (fraud line) at 1-800-269-0271 and file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
