Filing a Police Report
If you believe you’ve been a victim of identity theft, the first step is to file a police report. This report will document the theft and can be used as evidence in your case.
To file a police report, you’ll need to provide the following information:
Your name, address, and phone number
A list of the items that were stolen, such as your driver’s license or social security card
The date of the theft
The location of the theft, if known
Any other relevant information, such as witness statements or surveillance footage
Filing a Fraud Alert
The next step in the identity theft restoration process is to file a fraud alert with the three major credit reporting agencies: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax.
When you file a fraud alert, businesses will be required to verify your identity before opening any new accounts in your name. This extra step can help prevent future fraud and make it easier to resolve any disputes that do arise.
You can file a fraud alert by contacting each of the credit reporting agencies individually.
Reviewing Your Credit Reports
Once you’ve filed a fraud alert, the next step is to review your credit reports from all three credit reporting agencies. This will allow you to see what accounts have been opened in your name and identify any fraudulent activity.
You’re entitled to one free credit report from each agency every year. You can request your reports by visiting annualcreditreport.com.
If you find any fraudulent activity on your credit reports, the next step is to file a dispute with the credit reporting agency.
You can do this by mail, phone, or online.
When you file a dispute, the credit reporting agency will investigate the claim and remove any inaccurate information from your report.
