Warrant Issued


Follow each step to begin the process of clearing your name:

1 Organize Your Case

Keep a detailed log in a spiral notebook of all phone calls you receive or make including the name of the person you spoke with, that person’s title, phone number, and what was said during the conversation. Keep loose papers in a notebook or accordion folder.

2 Contact the Court

Contact the court that issued the order and report that you are a victim of identity theft. You may have to appear before a judge. Ask the court what documents are needed to prove your innocence. Be prepared to present proof of your identity and supporting documentation disputing the charges and/or warrant.

You may want to retain an attorney to assist you with this process. You can call the Utah Bar Association at (801)531-9077 to find an attorney, or visit www.utahbar.org

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. Order your credit report from a different agency each time. 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. Report ID Theft
