Reporting identity theft or fraud

If you are the victim of identity theft or fraud:

Helpful tips

  • Protect your social security number and only give it out when required by law.
  • Be aware of email scams. No bank, auction site or other business should send you an email asking for credit card information, passwords, social security numbers or other personal information. Fake emails may link to webpages that look real, but are not. If you suspect you are being directed to a fake website please inform your company of what has happened.
  • Avoid mail theft by obtaining a locked mailbox and dropping off outgoing mail at the local post office or postal mailbox.
  • Do not give out your personal information or credit card number over the phone unless you initiated the call.
  • Shred credit card offers and bank statements before you throw them away if you do not plan on using them.
