If you think you may be a target of identity theft, please notify at least
one of the credit bureaus to put a fraud alert on your credit. By calling one
of them, a hold will be put on your credit at each of the 3 bureaus. You will
then be notified and must give express permission if anyone tries to obtain
credit in your name. These credit bureaus also offer credit monitoring for a
monthly or annual fee.
