You’ve probably heard about all the data breaches that seem to be happening more often. To help you better understand breaches and what you can do if it happens to you, PrimeLending has teamed up with LifeLock® to bring you important information on identity theft protection.
LifeLock recommends you take the following steps to prevent identity theft:
Monitor your transactions: Keep an eye on your credit and debit card transactions, looking for activity that doesn’t seem to be yours. Rather than wait for your monthly statement, you can monitor transactions daily using the card issuer’s website or a transaction-monitoring tool.
Watch your credit reports: You can get a free credit report from each of the three major U.S. credit bureaus each year, and you can pay for more frequent access.
Act fast: If you believe you’re the victim of identity theft, follow the above steps and contact the Federal Trade Commission. If you’re a LifeLock member and think you may have been a victim, call our Member Services team for assistance at 1-800-LifeLock.
*Credit card and automatic renewal required. Customers who close on a home loan with PrimeLending will receive a 6-month membership.
†LifeLock network does not cover all transactions and scope may vary.
