Check Your Credit Report

  • One of the most important ways you can protect yourself against Identity Theft is to check your credit report status often.
  • Under federal law (The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act - FACTA), you are entitled to one free credit report per year
  • If you believe you are a victim of identity theft, you can request that a fraud alert be placed on your credit report to signal this to prospective users of that report.
