Identity Theft Report

These sections of the Federal Trade Commission Consumer Information website will help you prepare an Indentity Theft Report.

An Identity Theft Report will help you deal with credit reporting companies, debt collectors, and businesses that gave the identity thief credit or opened new accounts in your name. You can use the Report to:

  • get fraudulent information removed from your credit report
  • stop a company from collecting debts that result from identity theft, or from selling the debt to another company for collection
  • place an extended fraud alert on your credit report
  • get information from companies about accounts the identity thief opened or misused

What to do Immediately when Identity Theft occurs.
