Repair Credit
If you notice suspicious activity, the first thing to do is to alert your financial institution. Next, you should contact local law enforcement and file a police report. You should also talk to others who may be involved with the account, such as collection agencies, the company that wrote the line of credit and credit reporting agencies. Also, be sure to seek assistance from identity theft organizations, such as the Identity Theft Resource Center and the Identity Theft Assistance Center.
