Post-Pandemic Identity Theft

By Law Office of Abel L. Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C.

In today’s post-pandemic world, identity theft is becoming a rampant problem. It can happen in various ways, even between people who know each other. Roommates who forget to secure their personal information, parents using their children’s identity for their own benefit, and even grown children taking advantage of their elderly parents are just some examples. The worst part? The fraudulent activities are usually reflected in your credit report.

Discovering identity theft can be a nightmare, especially when it happens while applying for a loan, renting an apartment or getting a mortgage. If you suspect identity theft, taking immediate action is crucial. Filing a police report and contacting the credit reporting agencies are the first steps. When notifying the credit reporting agencies, make sure to write a detailed letter listing all accounts that belong to you and the ones that don’t. Also, specify whether the balances on the accounts that belong to you are accurate. To ensure delivery and proof of receipt, send the letter via certified mail or a trusted courier service with a tracking number.
