Identity Theft

What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is the use of another person’s identification, usually with the goal of taking unauthorized financial advantages. The victim of identity theft is held responsible for the perpetrator’s actions. If you’re a victim and are unsure of what step to take next, we not only dispute all your negative items every round, but we can help identify the problem and fix the issues on your credit reports too.

Identification misuse also involves use of the following:

  • Names
  • Dates of birth
  • Social security numbers
  • Driver’s license numbers
  • PIN numbers
  • Bank account numbers
  • Electronic signatures
  • Passwords
  • Fingerprints

Protect Yourself 

No matter how much you trust a person, don’t hand them your credit card. A close friend could easily take a photo of your credit card and use it for online purchases a few months later when you least expect it and you’d never suspect it to be him/her. You should only give out your credit card information to trusted companies and websites.

Check your bank statements frequently. Some of the most strategic theft is made in sparse, small purchases so that you may never notice. Make sure all the charges, whether big or small, belong to you. If you see fraudulent activity in your bank account, you need to have your credit swept. If you’re a client with us, we will be fixing inaccuracies to help protect you from identity theft as well as get all your negative accounts removed.
