How can I tell if my information has been stolen?
Some warning signs of identity theft are:
- Collection agencies or creditors call you about accounts that you don't have or purchases that you didn't make.
- Your bank or other financial statements show withdrawals, transactions, or transfers that you didn't make.
- Creditors call to tell you that you have been approved for or denied credit that you did not apply for.
- Your credit applications are denied for unexpected reasons. For example, your credit report shows a debt that you do not recognize.
