Warning Signs of Identity Theft!

You might be a victim of identity theft if you:

  • Receive credit cards that you did not apply for.
  • Find unauthorized charges on your bank or credit card statements.
  • Receive bills or collection letters from companies that you never heard of or for accounts you don’t recognize.
  • Receive rejection letters for loans you did not apply for.
  • Receive notices reflecting that you traveled to, lived in or did business in a jurisdiction to which you have no connections.
  • Get calls from debt collectors or businesses about merchandise or services you did not buy.
  • Fail to receive your bills or regular mail. (The ID thief may have changed your billing address!)
  • Receive unexpected notices from the IRS about failing to report all your income or informing you that they received more than one income tax return in your name.
