Prevent Identity Theft

In the last month a couple of would be buyers applied for loans with our Mtge.Co.During the process we found out someone had stolen their identity!!! Here’s some tips and preventing this from happening to you.

When you’re paying your credit card bill by check Do Not put your whole credit card number on the check.Just put the last 4 numbers of the card.

Never have your social security number printed on the check.

Carry a photo copy of all the contents in your wallet in case of theft you can cancel everything in one quick moment.

Cancel credit cards immediately and the key is having the toll free numbers and the credit card numbers handy where you can find them !!

File a police report immediately. This proves to credit providers you were diligent and also a first step towards an investigation. Then call the three credit reporting agencies and ask them to place a fraud alert on your name.

Equifax 1-800-525-6285

Experian 1-888-397-3742

Trans Union 1-800-680-7289

Social Security Adm. (Fraud Line) 1-800-269-0271

The alert then lets anyone that checks your credit know your information was stolen,and they have to contact you by phone to authorize any new credit. Better safe then sorry !!!!
