What Customers Can Do

Review Credit Card/Bank Account and Credit Statements and Request Security Freeze

Customers should continue to closely review all account statements and a customer’s credit report and report any suspicious activity to the three major credit bureaus (see below).  Customers may place a security freeze on their credit reports.  A security freeze prohibits a credit reporting agency from releasing any information from a consumer’s credit report without written authorization.  However, it is important to note that placing a security freeze on a credit report may delay, interfere with, or prevent the timely approval of any requests for new loans, credit mortgages, employment, housing or other services.

If a customer has been a victim of identity theft, and a valid police report has been provided to the credit reporting agency, the agency cannot charge to place, lift or remove a security freeze.  In all other cases, a credit reporting agency may charge up to $5.00 each to place, temporarily lift, or permanently remove a security freeze.

To place a security freeze on your credit report you may either call or submit a written request must be sent to each of the three major consumer reporting agencies:  Equifax (www.Equifax.com); Experian (www.experian.com); and TransUnion (www.transunion.com) by regular, certified or overnight mail at the addresses below:

In order to request a security freeze a customer will need to provide the following information:

  1. Full name (including middle initial as well as Jr., Sr., II, III, etc.);
  2. Social Security Number;
  3. Date of birth;
  4. If a customer has moved in the past five (5) years, provide the addresses where you have lived over the prior five (5) years;
  5. Proof of current address such as a current utility bill or telephone bill;

  8. If a customer is not the victim of identity theft, include payment by check, money order, or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover only).  DO NOT send cash through the mail.

The credit reporting agencies have three (3) business days after receiving a request to place a security freeze on a credit report.  The credit bureaus must also send written confirmation within five (5) business days and provide a customer with a unique person identification number (PIN) or password, or both that can be used to authorize the removal or lifting of the security freeze.
