Are you the victim of a fraud? Is someone else using your identification? To place a flag on your name so that others may not obtain further credit in your name, contact the following companies by phone:
(TRW) Experian – 1-800-422-4879 or 1-800-682-7654.
Transunion – 1-800-680-7289.

Never give your social security number to anyone over the phone.
Review all credit card statements each month and compare them to all receipts.
Always get a call back number on suspicious calls regarding any and all utility companies. Compare these numbers with the numbers on your bill.
Do not allow store employees to write your credit card number on your check. They can only document the type of credit card and year of expiration.
