Identify theft is a serious crime. How can someone avoid identify theft? First, contact your local police and file a report about the identity theft. Second, contact your bank and credit card company to report a theft alert. Third, contact one of the three credit bureaus immediately (Equifax, TransUnion and Experian) to report fraud alert and security freezes on your credit reports. I encourage you to double check on your online accounts to see if you have been hijack on your accounts then change your passwords for high security.
