Create an Identity Theft Report
An Identity Theft Report helps you deal with credit reporting companies, debt collectors, and businesses that opened accounts in your name. You can use the Report to:
• get fraudulent information removed from your credit report
• stop a company from collecting debts that result from identity theft, or from selling the debt to another company for collection
• place an extended fraud alert on your credit report
• get information from companies about accounts the identity thief opened or misused
