Hi! I’m Erin, an automated LegalShield representative here to assist you with any questions you may have.

How do I prove I'm an identity theft victim?

  • Sometimes a consumer may think identity theft has occurred when it actually may not have. If there is an account on your credit report that you did not authorize, it could be there because an identity thief used your information to create an account. Or it could simply be the result of a credit reporting error. If you can confirm that some key piece of your identification, such as a Social Security number was used to do something like opening a credit card account, obtaining a loan or obtaining health care, that proves you’re a victim of identity theft. IDShield members have unlimited consultation with Kroll Licensed Private Investigators if they have any questions or concerns regarding the status of their identity.
