How Can I Regain My Identity Once It Has Been Stolen?

The most important thing you can do if you find unexplained charges on credit cards, bills on your credit report, an unexplained notice you are being sued, or even an arrest warrant, is to take action quickly. Below are the starting steps of reclaiming your name:

  • File a report with the police.

  • Place a fraud alert on your credit reports.

  • Close any accounts that you know or even think might have been tampered with or opened by someone else.

  • File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

  • Put a Freeze on Your Credit.
