FREEZE YOUR CREDIT TO HELP PREVENT ID THEFT

SO YOUR CREDIT INFORMATION WAS STOLEN - YOU NEED TO DO THIS: Immediately arrange with the Three Big USA Credit Companies, Equifax, Experian and Transunion to FREEZE YOUR CREDIT. "This added layer of security means that thieves can't establish new credit in your name even if they are able to obtain your ID. Freezes have been available for free to victims of ID theft for some years, but recently all three of the major credit bureaus adopted new rules allowing non-victims to have access to credit freezes as well for a small fee. Freezing your credit files has no impact whatsoever on your existing lines of credit, such as credit cards. You can continue to use them as you regularly would even when your credit is frozen." - Clark Howard DO NOT LOSE THE PIN NUMBER THEY GIVE YOU, OR ELSE YOU CAN NOT UNFREEZE YOUR CREDIT. I strongly suggest freezing your credit whether or not you know you information has been stolen. and with all the Data Breaches these days, your personal informaation probably has been stolen. Read the COMPLETE Clark Howard's Article about Freezing your credit: Clark's Credit Freeze Guide - Clark Howard dot com

Don't Return Calls From These Area Codes -- It's A Scam! - Forbes 2/2014 "473 is not the only area code from which this scam has been perpetrated. Beware calls coming in from area codes 809, 284, 649 and 876, which like 473 are international, and are known to have been used for similar scams.
