WHAT TO DO IF YOU FALL VICTIM
TO IDENTITY THEFT
Cambridge State bank will never send an e-mail requesting your password, PIN or personal information. Contact us if you receive such a request.

1. Report the theft with each of the three major credit bureaus- each one has a fraud center. Ask that a "fraud alert" be placed on your file. Also request that no new lines of credit be granted without first seeking your approval. You'll be asked to record the incident(s) in writing, and include copies of any documents to be used as evidence.

Each major credit bureau:

Equifax
Consumer Fraud Division
PO BOX 740250
Atlanta, GA  30374-0250
800.525.6285

Experian
Experian's National Consumer Assistance
PO BOX 1017
Allen, TX 75013
888.397.3742

Transunion
Fraud Victim Assistance Division
PO BOX 6790
Fullerton, CA 92834
800.680.7289

2. Close accounts that have been fraudulently accessed or opened. To do so, contact the security departments of the appropriate creditors or financial institutions. If you open any  new accounts, put complex passwords on them.

3. File a report with local police, or the police where the identity theft took place. Be sure to get a copy of the report or report number in case the bank, credit card company, or others need proof of the crime.

4. File with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC provides an ID Theft Affidavit that can help you organize and accurately record your complaint. All three major credit bureaus and most of the large lenders accept this form as notice from you.
