Has Your Identity Been Stolen?

If your ID has been stolen, you need to take action in defending your reputation right away. The Federal Trade Commission https://www.identitytheft.gov/ has great resources to help you understand what to do next.

Here are important actions you need to make immediately to prevent further damage:

  1. Contact the three major credit bureaus and request a fraud alert be placed on your file
    • Equifax - (800) 525-6285
    • Experian - (888) 397-3742
    • Trans Union - (800) 680-7289
  2. Order copies of your credit report to find out if any fraudulent accounts have been opened in your name
  3. Contact Allegiance Credit Union and your other financial institutions (by phone and writing) to report the crime and monitor your accounts
