How do I know if my information has been stolen?

Here are some ways you can tell if your information has been compromised or stolen:

  • Bills or other mail fails to arrive when expected.
  • Unauthorized financial transactions occur.
  • Mail, email or calls about accounts that don’t belong to you are received.
  • There is unexpected information or a mistake on account statements, credit reports or medical records.
  • You receive letters or calls about purchases, accounts or jobs in your name.
  • Your legitimate request for credit is denied for no apparent reason.
  • The IRS notifies you that a tax return was already filed in your name or that you have income from an employer you don’t work for.
  • You receive notice that your information was compromised by a data breach at a business that you use.
