How You Can Protect Your Identity and Accounts

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information such as your name, Social Security number, credit card number or other identifying information, without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes.

Identity theft is a serious concern. Here are few steps to remember in order to protect your identity and accounts.

  • Blossom Wealth Management will never request or disclose your personal information (account number, Login password, Social Security number) in either a non-secure or unsolicited email communication.

  • If you get an email that warns you, with little or no notice, that an account of yours will be shut down unless you reconfirm your billing information, do not reply or click on the link in the email.

  • Shred financial documents that contain your personal information before you discard.

  • Check your credit report regularly to make sure no unauthorized activity has occurred.

  • Protect your personal information (such as your PIN, Social Security number, date of birth, etc.). Do not give it out to any person or company or in an email unless you are familiar with them and you have initiated your communication with them.

  • Don’t carry unneeded credit cards, your Social Security card, your birth certificate or other personal documents in your purse or wallet.

  • Monitor all your bank statements from every credit card every month. Check to see if there is anything that you do not recognize and call the credit grantor to verify that it is truly yours.

What To Do If You Are A Victim of Identity Theft

If you are a victim of identity theft, here are some recommended steps:

  • Contact the fraud departments of each of the 3 major credit bureaus:

  • Report the identity theft and request a “fraud alert.” This ensures that you will be contacted before any new account is opened and/or an existing account is changed.

  • Request copies of credit reports. Review the reports carefully and identify any new accounts that may have been opened. Pay particular attention to the section of the report that lists “inquiries” from new companies. Contact these companies immediately and have them remove any pending or new accounts from their system. Note: Credit bureaus must provide free copies of credit reports to victims of identity theft.

  • Contact the fraud departments of creditors to dispute unauthorized charges (e.g., credit card issuer, phone companies, utilities, banks, other lenders.) Describe your identity theft problem and follow up with a letter.

  • File a report with your local police department and ask to file a report. This may help when clearing your credit.

  • File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC handles complaints from victims of identity theft, provides information to those victims, and refers complaints to appropriate entities, including the major credit-reporting agencies and law enforcement agencies.

  • By phone: (877) ID-THEFT
