Consumer Resources, Fraud & Help

If you become victim of a scam or fraud, there are steps you can take to help mitigate damage.  First off, Report it!

The agency or institution(s) to contact for help will depend on the type of fraud. To protect yourself following identity fraud, the FTC recommends filing a report through the FTC, contacting the 3 major credit bureaus to put a freeze on credit approvals, and in most cases, filing a police report. There are measures you can take to minimize the potential damage and your liability.

Report the incident and get advice from the proper authority.  If your bank account or credit card has been compromised, contact the bank or credit card company immediately.
