CREDIT FRAUD PROTECTION

ADD A FRAUD ALERT MESSAGE TO YOUR CREDIT REPORT

Credit Fraud — Take Action

You can add a fraud alert message to your credit report to help protect your credit information by selecting from one of the credit fraud alert options below. Fraud alert messages notify potential credit grantors to verify your identification before extending credit in your name in case someone is using your information without your consent.

What would you like to do?

  • Add a Fraud Alert Message to your credit report if you suspect that your identification information has been or could be used fraudulently.

  • We recommend that you review a copy of your personal credit report. If you believe that information in your credit report is inaccurate due to identity theft or fraud, contact us at the phone number on your report for assistance from a representative specially trained in consumer credit fraud.

  • If you are an active duty military consumer, you can add an Active Duty Alert to your credit report. An Active Duty Alert will remain on your report for one year.
