Identity Fraud Warning Signs

Millions of Americans fall victim to identity theft each year. This stolen information is often used by criminals to commit financial fraud, or to accrue unauthorized debt using the victim’s identity. The key to identity theft prevention is staying one step ahead of the criminals.

Helping you stay safe and secure

These tips and indicators can help you spot potential identity theft.

Step 1Check your financial account statements monthly. Verify that each charge or payment was authorized by you. Any unknown charge should prompt you to investigate further or to call your financial institution.

Step 2Beware unknown medical bills. Victims of identity theft often end up with denied medical coverage due to maxed out insurance benefits. Stay alert for any medical bills charging for services you did not receive.

Step 2Unexpected credit cards or unknown accounts. If you discover credit cards or unknown accounts opened under your name, call the account servicer immediately to inform them of the issue and to initiate cancellation. Regularly check your credit report for discrepancies.

Step 3Missing mail. Stay vigilant for any missing monthly statements or bills. This can be an indicator that someone is pilfering your mail to collect information and steal your identity.

Step 4Errors on your tax return. If you received official notification by mail from the IRS that more than one tax return was filed under your identity, contact the IRS immediately.

Step 4Arrest warrants. In extreme cases, warrants for your arrest can also be an indicator of identity theft, revealing that your identity may have been used in criminal activity.
