  • Check your accounts.
  • Contact all creditors and financial institutions.
  • Place a fraud alert on your social security number, and obtain a copy of your credit report.
  • Contact the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) no-cost victim assistance number: 1-888-400-5530 or The ITRC can provide victims with valuable information and give you detailed information on what you need to file.
  • Run your credit report quarterly.
  • Contact one of the three companies to place an alert.
    • Equifax: 1-800-525-6285, P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241.
