Think you don’t need Identity Theft Protection? Think Again.
Identity theft is consistently the number one complaint to the Federal Trade Commission. Rampant data breaches affecting millions of records are putting consumers at great risk of identity theft. It can happen to anyone, regardless of your age, income, where you live, or how careful you are.
Restoring your identity on your own can be stressful and time-consuming. After a while, some people give up, leaving them to contend with the aftermath of identity theft for years to come, including fraudulent bills, collections activity, damaged credit and even criminal records.
This is why Progressions Credit Union has teamed up with one of the nation’s most trusted names in Identity Theft Protection to provide all members with a comprehensive Identity Theft Research, Remediation, and Recovery Service at no additional charge.
Fully Managed Identity Theft Recovery
If you become a victim or suspect identity theft for any reason, simply let us know. You do not have to confirm identity theft before seeking assistance. We will put you in touch with a professional Recovery Advocate who, depending on your identity theft incident, will:
- Perform research to determine the extent of the problem, including a review of all three credit reports (if appropriate)
- Assist with the placement of fraud alerts with the three major credit bureaus
- Write letters and make phone calls on your behalf to dispute fraudulent information
- Coordinate with government agencies, financial institutions, creditors, etc. to resolve incidents
- Work with law enforcement to help arrest and prosecute the criminals
