If you have been a victim of credit fraud it is important to take the necessary steps to prevent this from having a negative impact on your credit score. One of these steps is alerting the credit bureaus to the potential (or confirmed) fraud you have experienced. By alerting the credit bureaus to potential fraud on your credit report you will be able to have a head start to resolving any fraudulent activity which has occurred in your name but was not done by you.
To complete a fraud alert you will need to provide personal information to verify your identity when reporting the fraud. You will be asked to provide your Experian Credit Report number which can be found on your Experian Credit Report. You will also need to provide you social security number, your phone number and a valid email address.
