A credit score is a three digit number, typically between 300 and 850, which is designed to represent your credit risk, or the likelihood you will pay your bills on time. A credit score is calculated based on a method using the content of your consumer file.

The way your credit score is calculated and the contents of your consumer file may vary between each of the three national credit reporting agencies (CRAs) (Equifax®, Experian®, and TransUnion®). This is because not all creditors report to all three agencies.

While most creditors do report to all three national CRAs, you may hold an account with a creditor that only reports to one CRA or a creditor that doesn’t report to any of the three national CRAs. There are many different credit scores used by lenders, including credit scores provided by the three national CRAs, and credit scores that are custom built and used by a specific lender.

Suspicious Phone Call
It is important to note that phone calls can be phishing schemes that criminals use to try to get your information by deception. Unfortunately, IDSeal is unable to assist with or investigate unwanted or suspicious phone calls such as these. We recommend that you never give any personal or bank information over the phone unless you are certain of the caller’s true identity. You may want to contact your telephone service provider to see if it is possible to block calls from the unwanted number.

You may also contact your state Attorney General to file a consumer complaint regarding these phone calls, as well as filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. To learn more about telephone fraud or report instances of telephone fraud, visit www.ftc.gov/phonefraud.

Another recommendation is to register your phone number on the national Do Not Call Registry at www.DoNotCall.gov, or by calling 1-888-382-1222 from the number you wish to register. If you register online, you must click on the confirmation email you receive to complete your free registration.

Suspicious Email
Emails may be phishing schemes that criminals use to try to obtain your information by deception. Be sure to delete the email and do not reply or click any of the links. Never give any personal or bank information over the Internet unless you are certain of the sender’s identity.

If you suspect you have been a victim of Internet Fraud, you can file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) which is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). IC3 accepts online Internet crime complaints from either the person who believes they were defrauded or from a third party to the complaint.

Please visit www.ic3.gov for additional information.

Suspicious Mail
Unfortunately, receiving suspicious mail is fairly common and does not necessarily mean that an identity theft has occurred. IDSeal is unable to stop or investigate this type of unwanted mail. One suggestion is to mark the mail with “Return to Sender—Not at This Address” and put it back into the mail. If you continue to receive mail that is not yours, please notify the post office. If you are also receiving unwanted junk mail, you can opt out of this online by visiting www.dmachoice.org and filling out the online form. Another opt-out option is: www.optoutprescreen.com. Both services are free to use.

● Report the crime to the police immediately. Get a copy of your police report or case number. Credit card companies, your bank, and the insurance company may ask you to reference the report to verify the crime.
● Immediately contact your credit card issuers. Get replacement cards with new account numbers and ask that the old account be processed as “account closed at consumer’s request” for credit record purposes. You should also follow up this telephone conversation with a letter to the credit card company that summarizes your request in writing.
● Call the fraud units of the three credit reporting bureaus and ask that your accounts be flagged. Also, add a victim’s statement to your report that requests that they contact you to verify future credit applications.
● Keep a log of all conversations with authorities and financial entities. And follow-up! Make sure that all creditors or credit bureaus have received what they need from you
● Review your reports regularly and make sure all changes you requested have been affected.
