YOU MAY WANT TO:
• Check your credit report for unexpected or unauthorized activity. Place fraud alerts to prevent new accounts from being opened without verification.
• Contact companies, including banks, where you have accounts. Close or suspend accounts you know or believe have been tampered with or opened fraudulently.
• File a report with the local police. You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
• Consider what other information the thief may have accessed. For example, if a thief accesses your Social Security number, contact the Social Security Administration. Or if your driver’s license or car registration are stolen, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles.
