Identity Theft

If you believe you have been the victim of identity theft, it is important to take immediate action to prevent further reputational and credit damage. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) are both excellent resources for determining what steps to take to stop the damage and repair your credit.

The CFPB has published a document entitled Remedying the Effects of Identity Theft.

Additional information can be found on the CFPB website by searching “identity theft” at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (
