This is info from our local paper on the hacking and what to do if you are affected. I called the number for the credit agencies and was able to put the fraud alert on easily. Hope this helps some.....
If at risk, here’s what to do
• Monitor your credit report. Each person can obtain a free credit report by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com
or by calling (877) 322-8228.
• You should also contact one of the three major credit bureaus to place a 90-day fraud alert on your credit report. That bureau will automatically notify the other two major credit bureaus to flag your credit file. A fraud alert flag tells creditors to follow additional procedures before opening or changing accounts in your name.
Equifax: (800) 525-6285, Experian: (888) 397-3742, TransUnion: (800) 680-7289
• As a precaution, you can request an identity theft victim information kit from the Indiana State Attorney General’s office at www.indianaconsumer.com
If a problem is detected . . .
• Contact the fraud department at one of the three major credit bureaus with the new information you have.
• Close any accounts that have been tampered with or opened fraudulently.
• File a police report with your local police or the police department in the community where the identity theft took place.
• File a compliant with the Federal Trade Commission, (877) 438-4338
