If you are a Victim of Identity Theft utilize these helpful Identity theft resources below;
Contact your banks and credit card companies if a data breach occurs.
Place a fraud alert and/or a more stringent “security freeze” on your credit report.
You can contact one of the major credit reporting agencies to place a fraud alert on their credit report, and that agency will contact the other two. Once placed, an alert requires that a business verify your identity and SSN before issuing credit in your name. Fraud alerts are free and remain for 90 days, unless you renew the alert. You should never carry your social security card or number in your wallet.
If you prefer to place the more stringent security freeze on your credit report, you must contact all three credit reporting agencies individually. While the credit reporting agencies may charge a fee for placing and lifting security freezes, once a freeze is in place the credit reporting agencies cannot release any of your information to would-be creditors without your express authorization.
File a police report. Connecticut law allows victims of identity theft to report identity theft to the law enforcement agency where they reside, and to obtain a copy of the report.
If your personal information was compromised online, contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center to file a com- plaint at: https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
