Dear Nancy. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America, and sadly California reports more incidents than almost any other state. If you suspect someone has misused your personal or financial information, contact the 3 credit bureaus and ask them to put an initial fraud alert on your credit report. You will need to provide proof of your identity. An initial fraud alert makes it harder for an identity thief to open more accounts in your name. When you have an alert on your report, a business must verify your identity before it issues credit in your name, so they may try to contact you. The initial alert stays on your report for 90 days. Closely review and monitor your credit reports. If you see errors on the report, such as accounts you didn’t open or debts you didn’t incur, contact the credit bureaus and the fraud department of each business that reported an error. If the errors results from identity theft and you have an Identity Theft Report, ask the credit bureaus and business to block the disputed information from appearing on your credit reports. Ask for copies of any documents the identity thief used to open a new account or make changes in your name. These documents may help prove the identity theft.
Along with the Police report you have already filed. You can submit a complaint about the theft to the FTC. When you finish writing all the details, print a copy of the report. It will print as an Identity Theft Affidavit. Bring your FTC Identity Theft Affidavit when you file a police report. Visit https://identitytheft.gov or call 1-877-438-4338. IdentityTheft.gov is the federal government’s one-stop resource for identity theft victims.
Per the Federal Trade Commission, here’s an overview of your rights when recovering from identity theft: https://identitytheft.gov/Know-Your-Rights
