Stolen Identity

Signs That Someone Stole Your Information

  • Withdrawals from your account appear that you can’t explain.
  • You aren’t receiving bills or other mail.
  • Merchants refuse your checks.
  • You receive calls from Debt collectors about debts that aren’t yours.
  • Unfamiliar accounts or charges appear on your credit report.
  • You receive medical bills for unfamiliar treatment.
  • Your health plan rejects legitimate medical claims because records show you’ve reached your benefits limit.
  • Health plans won’t cover you because medical records show a condition you don’t have.
  • You receive IRS notification there is more than one tax return in your name, or income from employers you don’t work for.
  • You receive notice that your information was compromised by a data breach at a company where you do business or have an account.

What to Do

  • Immediately take action. The process to get your identity back can be lengthy, but it’s better than a lifetime of dealing with the actions of a criminal. 
  • Read the FTC instructions on what to do if your identity is stolen
