Every week on the news it’s inevitable that we hear about identity theft or a renowned bank that has been hacked putting its members at risk after their database of credit card or debit card numbers might have been compromised. If you ever find yourself in this situation, there are some key steps to take to start the process to further protect yourself.

2. Close the accounts that you know, or believe, have been tampered with or opened fraudulently.

3. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

4. File a report with your local police or the police in the community where the identity theft took place.
