Identity Theft Victim Checklist

One-third of Americans have experienced some form of attempted identity theft in their lifetime. Instances of fraud increased 70% from 2020 to 2022, according to the National Council on Identity Theft Protection.

The FTC suggests that if you are a victim to take these steps immediately:

Contact the companies where you know the fraud has occurred. This includes savings accounts, checking accounts and debit cards that have been tampered with or used fraudulently.

Place a fraud alert on your credit reports, by contacting one of the three credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian or TransUnion. That company must tell the other two.

File a complaint with the FTC. Reports can be made online or over the phone. Visit IdentityTheft.gov to get a personalized recovery plan.

File a report with law enforcement. Depending on the extent of the theft, you may want to contact law enforcement. Ask for a copy of the report or the report number.
