It is important to act quickly if you think your personal information has fallen into the wrong hands. Don’t wait to act even if you have a suspicion of identity theft – like mistakenly responding to a phony email request for your account information. The sooner you act, the better you can limit the damage.
3 key steps that need to be taken immediately.
1. Contact your financial services company.
They will shut down any accounts that may be compromised or at risk of being compromised.
You must be referred to ITAC by your financial services company to use the free ITAC Victim Assistance® service.
An ITAC agent will review your credit report with you to identify any suspicious activity and contact other account holders, if necessary.
