Identity Theft- You are Entitled to a Free Credit Check!

Memphis Identity Theft Lawyers

 

Unfortunately, with the rise of online identity theft you could be a victim and not realize it for weeks or months. Periodically checking your credit is a good way to make sure someone hasn’t fraudulently taken out a credit card or line of credit in your name.

You are entitled to a FREE CREDIT REPORT once a year from each of the three major credit bureaus: TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. You can order all three at once, or you can monitor your credit over time by ordering them one at a time over the course of the year. 

If requested, credit bureaus must disclose all of the information it has regarding you and your credit, and it must also disclose the sources of that information. 

Financially speaking, with everything today being based around one’s credit rating, this is extremely important information to know. If you discover an error in your file or notice something you did not apply for, notify the credit reporting agency. They are required to investigate the items in question within 30 business days of receiving a reported error.

If you have been a victim of identity theft or just have a question in general feel free to call The Chiozza Law firm at 901-526-9494 for a free consultation.
