Identity theft can ruin your credit rating and prevent or delay you from obtaining a loan, an apartment, or a good job. Identity thieves use your Social Security number, bank account data, or other personal information to open accounts in your name and run up bills with no intention of paying those debts. As a result, your credit rating goes down and bill collectors start hounding you. The good news is that you can fight back. Our experienced consumer protection attorneys are ready to help you set the record straight and regain control of your identity.
Many people don’t realize that someone has stolen their identity until the damage is done. However, you may notice certain clues that your identity has been compromised. If your bank account statement includes withdrawals that you didn’t make or debt collectors begin calling you about debts that are not yours, your identity may have been stolen. As soon as you suspect that you’ve been the victim of identity theft, you should take immediate action to prevent this incident from negatively affecting your life.
Identity theft victims should collect all relevant documentation to illustrate the nature and extent of the theft. Credit reports, bank accounts, and other evidence of the theft can help to build a strong case on your behalf. At Thomasson PLLC, we know how stressful this situation can be.
