Identity theft?


Somebody got a hold of my SSN and signed me up for 5 iPhones... One of the receipts came to my father's address and he opened it.

I called the numbers. They are all off. I guess this guy is planning to ship the IPhones over to China or something. Interestingly, there was no request or inquiry from The phone company on my credit report.

I filed a fraud report with Equifax and just signed up for Lifelock. Anything else I should do?

re: Identity theft?


check the 3 major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.

call the 3 above's fraud department and request them to put a victim's statement on your report. give them 2 contact numbers. by doing this, anytime someone opens or applies for an account, the creditor must contact you. this alert will last for 90 days. if you file a police report, the alert can last for 7 years.


call your bank or other major banks and request they do a search for your SSN to make sure you do not have any accounts with them.
