When contacting the Credit Reporting Agency

1. Ask to have your SS# flagged with a FRAUD ALERT

2. Request a copy of your credit report. If you have suspected fraud they are required to give you a FREE copy.

3. Review your report very thoroughly. Look for any accounts that you did not open or ones that

you do not believe that you have used yourself.
