Identity theft can ruin your credit rating and prevent or delay you from obtaining a loan, adequate housing, 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 consumer protection attorneys are ready to help you set the record straight and regain control of your identity and life.
Many people don’t realize someone has stolen their identity until the damage is done. However, there are often clues that your identity has been compromised. For example, if your bank account statement includes withdrawals 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 you are a victim of identity theft, you should take immediate action to prevent the incident from negatively affecting your life.
Identity theft victims should collect all documentation that demonstrates the nature and extent of the theft. For example, credit reports, bank accounts, and other evidence of the theft can help us build a strong case on your behalf. At Thomasson PLLC, we know how stressful this situation is and that’s why we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible so we can immediately begin advocating for your rights.
