Contact your ﬁnancial institution immediately and alert it to the situation.
If you have disclosed sensitive information in a phishing attack, you should also contact one of the three major credit bureaus and discuss whether you need to place a fraud alert on your ﬁle, which will help prevent thieves from opening a new account in your name. Here is the contact information for each bureau’s fraud division:
P.O. Box 740250 Atlanta, GA 30374
P.O. Box 6790 Fullerton, CA 92634
Report all suspicious contacts to the Federal Trade Commission through the Internet or by calling 1-877-IDTHEFT.
You can fight identity theft!
Never provide personal financial information, including your Social Security number, account numbers or passwords, over the phone or the Internet if you did not initiate the contact.
Never click on the link provided in an e-mail you believe is fraudulent. It may contain a virus that can contaminate your computer.
Do not be intimidated by an e-mail or caller who suggests dire consequences if you do not immediately provide or verify ﬁnancial information.
If you believe the contact is legitimate, go to the company’s Website by typing in the site address directly or using a page you have previously book marked, instead of a link provided in the e-mail.
If you fall victim to an attack, act immediately to protect yourself. Alert your ﬁnancial institution. Place fraud alerts on your credit ﬁles. Monitor your credit ﬁles and account statements closely.
