Identity theft can occur without the victim knowing for an extended period of time. Without consistently reviewing credit and other financial records, it can be very difficult to identify fraud. It isn't unheard of for an identity thief to file for someone's tax return and go unnoticed for several months. In addition, some people believe that they don't have any credit, and their information is not valuable to identity thieves so, they leave their financial information unchecked. Don't allow yourself to become a victim. Learn how to identify credit fraud.
Were you aware that Americans are entitled to three free credit reports every year? It's true, each of the three major credit bureaus provides one free credit report on a yearly basis. These reports can be leveraged to identify credit card fraud or other fraudulent transactions which have occurred in your name. A good practice is to access your reports throughout the year so that you are aware of your credit transactions on a more consistent basis. But what about the periods in between?
