I have learned that an individual is passing

_____ Checks numbered xxx to xxx for ___ (bank name, acct #xxx) were stolen. Be advised

_____ Checks have been fraudulently created by another person using my name and address as the account holder

You are hereby being notified that this is a fraudulent situation and a case of identity theft.

 

Below is my identifying information. I have filed a report with my local police department. According to FACTA (effective June 2, 2004) you will be required to comply with this request within 30 days.

 

Further, credit issuers must provide that documentation and information to a police agency designated by the impersonated party. I am designating the below named detective(s)/prosecutors as additional recipients of all account information and documents you may have regarding this situation including video surveillence tape, copies of checks and other transaction records.

 

Additionally, I hereby request you immediately start an investigation, and remove any entries of this account, the application or inquiry records and collection notices from my credit report at once. I also wish to speak with a fraud investigator within 30 days about the status of this case. Once resolved, I expect a letter of clearance to be sent to me within 10 days.

 

Do not sell, distribute, trade, exchange, share, donate, giveaway and/or transfer information about this fraudulent account with any other entity except with the designated law enforcement agencies and prosecutors involved in this case.

 

Please notify any collection agencies that you may have sent this account to. Please do not assign this account to another collection agency. So far these criminals have stolen approximately$______ in checks or credit charges in my name. We suspect there will be more until they are caught.

 

Be advised that reporting these items to the credit bureaus as collection items or continuing to pursue these debts from me would be considered a violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.††
