Are you an ID Theft Victim?

Steps to take right away

Ever thought just how many forms of ID there are in your wallet or purse – along with your debit and credit cards, cash and other valuables? Would you know what to do if your identity had been stolen?

It’s little wonder then that, according to The Insurance Journal, lost or stolen wallets are the number one cause of identity theft in the US.

So, if yours goes AWOL here’s what you need to do immediately:

  • If you’ve lost your driver’s license call your local DMV office and tell them what’s happened.
  • Credit Cards gone? Call each card company individually. If you’ve got multiple cards and don’t know which are at risk, get a copy of your credit report from all three major credit bureaus. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so cancel all the cards that appear.
  • For Debit Cards, call the bank where you’ve got checking accounts, tell them what’s happened and request new debit cards immediately.
  • For Medicare Cards, contact your nearest Medicare office immediately. You can find your nearest office at www.cms.hhs.gov. You can also request a new card from www.ssa.gov
  • Call your bank immediately and ask for a ‘stop payment’ on all checks associated with your account, if your check book was stolen too.  Your bank can tell you which checks are at risk by showing you the last check you remember authorizing.

Be quick, be safe

Identity thieves know that they have to act fast. So, if your wallet has been stolen, you have to also be fast to beat them. The longer you wait, the longer you run the risk of someone using your identity to apply for bank loans, student loans, car loans; to seek medical attention, or to file a tax refund.  And don’t underestimate the amount of time it takes to deal with the cancellation and replacement of your critical ID and credit/debit cards.  In fact, it takes an average of 33 hours to resolve ID theft related incidents according to a study by Javelin Research.

Worse still, you may be financially liable for these loans and services taken out fraudulently in your name. That’s why it pays to have ID Theft protection from Protect Your Bubble. We know all the numbers, all the contacts and all the forms that have to be dealt with. That means we can act fast – and save you time and hassle.

Remember: The faster you act, the faster you reduce your risk.
