View counts: 65
Video duration: 00:19:42
Identity theft is no joke. I was lucky enough to have credit monitoring in place when my identity was stolen, but If I didn’t, I’m sure my personal outcome would’ve been much more of a headache. Today’s video explores the key actions we can take to not only stop identity theft in it’s tracks, but also to prevent it from happening all together.
I walk through how to place a freeze on your Experian, TransUnion, Equifax, Innovis, ChexSystems, NCTUE, and LexisNexis accounts in today’s video. I also walk through the FTC Identity Theft report/affidavit process, and when you should consider filing a police report regarding your identity theft. I also provide actions we can take to secure our online identities, from enrolling in free credit monitoring, using a password manager, pulling your credit report yearly, and disputing credit report discrepancies.
