Initiate a Fraud Alert

If you are a victim of fraud, set a fraud alert on your credit report with one of the three major credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion® or Equifax®). This will warn lenders that you may be a fraud victim.

The fraud alert will stay on your credit report for 90 days and you can renew the fraud alert when it expires. This extra precaution will notify potential lenders that they should contact you before granting a new line of credit in your name.
