If you’ve been the victim of identity theft or online fraud, you can minimize the damage to your credit rating and finances. But you’ll need to take action quickly and aggressively to get good results.
You’ll need to talk to a lot of people, so staying organized is important. Keep a written log of all the contacts you make with creditors, financial institutions, etc. Keep copies of all letters, file paperwork promptly, and store everything in a safe and accessible place.
