Identity Theft

When a criminal uses another individual’s personal information to “become” that person, it is known as Identity Theft. It can involve more than the theft or misuse of a Social Security Number. It may also involve credit card and other types of fraud.

What should you do?

  • Act immediately to minimize the danger to your personal information, including but not limited to, personal funds and financial accounts.
  • Close all compromised accounts that have been established fraudulently in your name.
  • If you are a victim, and the US Mail is involved, contact the nearest US Postal Inspector’s office. Contact your local law enforcement agency.
  • If your Social Security Number was used fraudulently, contact the Social Security Administration at 1(800)269-0271.
  • Contact the three major credit bureaus:
    • Equifax: 1(800)525-6285
    • Experian: 1(888)397-3742
    • Trans Union: 1(800)680-7289
  • Contact the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to see if another driver’s license was issued in your name.
  • Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 877-ID-THEFT (438-4338) or visit their website. If any Blue Chip Federal Credit Union accounts are believed to be compromised, call 1(800)782-2328.
