The impact of having your identity stolen can be devastating, so catching it early is critical. When your ID has been stolen, there are a few clues. If your bills and financial statements aren’t arriving in the mail, it could mean that someone has changed the address on the account, or that identity thieves have taken your info right out of your mailbox.
If you know you have good credit but have been turned down for a new loan, someone may be adding bad credit under your name. Be sure to get an annual copy of your credit report to verify there isn’t any suspicious activity, and if you think your ID has been stolen, contact the proper authorities immediately.
