IDENTITY THEFT
Identity theft can happen to anyone. This rapidly growing crime effects more people every day in Toronto and around the world.

Yet, surprisingly most people think it will not happen to them. Reasons for this increase include the proliferation of card skimming devices and the hacking of computers.
 
 
  • Start taking notes about what has occurred and steps you’ve taken.
  • Contact the fraud/security department of your creditors for any accountsthat have been opened or tampered with. This includes, utility companies, credit card companies, banks and other lenders.
  • Ensure a “fraud alert” be placed on all your files immediately.
  • Contact the two main Canadian credit bureaus:
  • Equifax: 1-866-828-5961 and Trans Union: 1-800-663-9980.
