If you believe your personal and/or financial information has been breached, you can place a fraud alert on your credit report. This can help prevent an identity thief from opening additional accounts in your name. As soon as the credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the two other credit bureaus will automatically be notified to place alerts on your credit report and all three reports will be sent to you free of charge.
