Protect Yourself from Identity Theft!



Identity Theft

Someone gets your personal information and runs up bills in your name. They might use your Social Security or Medicare number, your credit card, or your medical insurance — along with your good name.

How would you know?
  • You could get bills for things you didn’t buy or services you didn’t get.
  • Your bank account might have withdrawals you didn’t make.
  • You might not get bills you expect.
  • Or, you could check your credit report and find accounts you never knew about.

Here’s what you can do:
  • Protect your information.
    • Put yourself in another person’s shoes.
    • Where would they find your credit card or Social Security number?
  • Protect your personal information.
    • Shred documents before you throw them out.
    • Provide your Social Security number only when you must.
    • Use strong passwords online.
  • Read your monthly statements.
  • Check your credit.
  • When you get your account statements and explanations of benefits, read them for accuracy. You should recognize what’s there.
Check your credit report annually!
  • Once a year, get your credit report for free from AnnualCreditReport.com or 1-877-322-8228.
  • The law entitles you to one free report each year from each credit reporting company.
  • If you see something you don’t recognize, you will be able to deal with it.
Please Report Scams
  • If you suspect identity theft, act quickly. Please report it to the Federal Trade Commission.
  • Report identity theft online or call the FTC at 1-877-FTC-HELP [1-877-382-4357] or TTY 1-866-653-4261.
  • The FTC operator will give you the next steps to take.
