Tromberg, Morris and Poulin agreed to dismiss the case and remove the account from our client’s credit reports.
Identity theft is a serious crime that can have a devastating impact on your financial and personal life. If you think you may be a victim of identity theft, it is important to take action immediately to protect yourself.
Here are some steps you can take if you are the victim of identity theft:
- Place a fraud alert on your credit reports. A fraud alert is a free service that tells creditors to take extra steps to verify your identity before opening a new account in your name. You can place a fraud alert by contacting each of the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
- Review your credit reports for any unauthorized activity. Once you have placed a fraud alert, you should request a copy of your credit reports from each of the three major credit bureaus. Review your reports carefully for any unauthorized accounts or activity. If you find anything suspicious, report it to the credit bureau immediately.
- Contact your creditors and financial institutions. Once you have reviewed your credit reports, you should contact your creditors and financial institutions to let them know that you may have been a victim of identity theft. Ask them to review your accounts for any unauthorized activity and to place a fraud alert on your accounts.
- File a police report. You should also file a police report if you believe you have been a victim of identity theft. This will help you to document the crime and may be helpful if you need to file a lawsuit later on.
- Monitor your credit reports and accounts for at least 12 months. Even after you have taken steps to protect yourself, it is important to monitor your credit reports and accounts for at least 12 months. This will help you to catch any unauthorized activity early on.
- If you have been the victim of identity theft, it is important to take action immediately to protect yourself. By following the steps above, you can help to minimize the damage and recover from this crime.
