• Theft – taking wallets or purses and using IDs and bank/credit cards.
• Mail – stealing mail or sending fraudulent mailers.
• Phone – making unsolicited calls requesting private information.
• Trash – digging through trash for receipts, statements, credit card offers, etc.
• E-mail – sending fraudulent e-mails that look like legitimate corporate communication. “Phishing” scams involve unsolicited professional-looking e-mails sent by thieves that alert customers to provide their confidential information (Social Security number, account numbers, PINs). Identity thieves then use this captured information to commit crimes under the victim’s identity.
• Online – creating counterfeit websites to capture your confidential information.
If you think your identity may have been stolen, contact the following immediately:
1. Credit Bureaus: Alert the credit bureaus of the fraudulent activity that has occurred.
2. Other Financial Institutions: Notify all of your banks or credit issuers.
4. Federal Trade Commission: File a complaint with the FTC by calling the Identity Theft Hotline toll-free at 1-877-IDTHEFT (438-4338).
