ID Theft

Identity Theft Victim Checklist

A recent study sponsored by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revealed that almost 10 million Americans discovered they were the victims of some form of identity theft in a one-year period before October 2003.

The cost of this crime approaches $50 billion a year, with the average loss from the misuse of a victimís personal information around $4,800.

If you are a victim, take these steps immediately:

Ask for a free copy of "When Bad Things Happen To Your Good Name" from your credit union.

* Place a fraud alert on your credit reports, ask for a free copy of your credit report, and review those reports for evidence of accounts you didnít open. Fraud unit contacts are:
