Identity theft is the fastest growing white-collar crime in the country having increased 1500% in the last 10 years! Now there is an easy way to protect yourself. You can call the three major credit reporting agencies by putting your name on their "Fraud Alert Lists".

Doing this will eliminate all the pre-approved credit card solicitations you receive which can be stolen by people going through your garbage cans. It also means if anyone tries to open a credit card account or get a loan in your name, the lending institution must first get your approval. This means a thief will be stopped in their tracks.

It takes about 3 minutes to register (you'll have to renew every two years).

Experian – 800 353-0809
Equifax – 888 567-8688
TransUnion – 800 680-7293
