Data Breaches: What Should You Do?

By
Mortgage and Lending NMLS: 13649

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.

 

Report suspicious transactions: If you see something that doesn’t look right, contact the card issuer or business immediately. Credit and debit card telephone numbers are on the back of your card.

 

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.

 

Contact a PrimeLending loan officer for details on how you can receive a free, trial membership* with LifeLock.
