ID Theft


IF YOUR KEYS WERE TAKEN:

Change or re-key whichever locks need to be changed for your protection.

IF YOUR CHECKS OR CREDIT CARDS WERE TAKEN:

Notify your bank if you have not already done so, then call one of the three credit reporting bureaus to report the loss and ask them to put a Fraud Alert on your account so no new credit will be issued without contacting you.

IF YOUR STOLEN CHECKS OR CARDS HAVE BEEN USED:

Contact the banks and/or businesses that accepted your checks or cards to notify them of the fraud and offer to sign any Affidavits of Forgery as needed.

IF YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY CARD WAS TAKEN:

Call the Social Security Administration Fraud Hotline to notify them of the loss and get information on how to get a duplicate card.
