Identity Theft Recovery Steps | IdentityTheft.gov

***Shared from Eastlake PD’s page***
Our department (and MANY others) have seen an increase with reports involving unemployment identity fraud. In a majority of these cases, the victim does not know until they receive a 1099 tax form in the mail. In these situations, it is advised to make a police report with your local agency and contact the Ohio Department of Job and Family services (they issue the unemployment checks). However, this fraud has become so prevalent, that the FTC website has a specific link to report it on their website (FTC.gov), you will go to their website, click the link to report identity theft and then it will take you to https://www.identitytheft.gov/, where you will then click the link (on the top-right) to specifically report 'unemployment fraud'. They then outline the steps that you will need to take to make the report with them and how to fix problems caused by identity theft, and it is a great list of what to do to follow up with the problems that identity fraud causes. As always, reporting to the 3 credit bureaus is advised (Equifax, Experian, and Transunion) and keep monitoring your credit.

Recovering from identity theft is a process. Here’s step-by-step advice that can help you limit the damage, report identity theft, and fix your credit.
