What should I do after I report fraud?
After notifying TDECU of fraudulent activity, you should:
- Contact the major credit reporting agencies (credit bureaus) to request a "fraud alert" on your file. This will require creditors to call you before they open an account in your name. The three major credit reporting agencies are:
Equifax: 866-349-5191 | www.equifax.com
Experian: 888-397-3742 | www.experian.com
TransUnion: 800-680-7289 | www.transunion.com
- Notify your local law enforcement agency to file an Identity Theft Report.
- Report situations of consumer fraud to the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov.
