4 Review Your Credit Report

Request a copy of your credit report from one of the three major credit-reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax or Transunion). The Fair And Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) gives all consumers the right to one free copy of their credit report each year from each of the credit reporting agencies. All three credit-reporting agencies have additional information regarding identity theft and the FACTA on their web sites.

Check each credit report carefully when you receive it. Look for accounts that you have not opened; charges that you have not made; inquiries that you have not initiated; and default and delinquencies that you have not caused. Check that your name, address, and Social Security number is correct on all reports. If you see possible fraudulent activity on your credit report, file all of the appropriate reports on this web site and follow the step-by-step instructions.

5 Monitor Your Credit Report

Check your credit report regularly. The federal FACTA law enables you to receive one free credit report per year from each of the three credit reporting agencies. These are in addition to the free reports you can order after you place a fraud alert on your credit file. Order your free credit reports online at www.annualcreditreport.com.

We recommend that you stagger the receipt of your credit reports, ordering one approximately every four months. Each time, ordering from a different agency. That way you can review your credit report three times each year If you see possible fraudulent activity on your credit report, file all of the appropriate reports on this web site and follow the step-by-step instructions.
