Darla, I don't know why they don't tell more people on how to protect themselves..I hated when we would get a ton of credit card offers to our home...with different variations on our name or address....I called each company...(toll-free) and told them to put me on the list, not to send me anything. If they said they didn't know how to do it...I mentioned the Attorney General of our State could help. lol There are rules they HAVE to follow.

The fraud alert is for 6 months...then you can do it again...it keeps all the credit card offers from coming into your mail too. Do one for yourself and then one for your hubby, if you have one. It is easy, and is done over the phone. There are 3 major credit companies...

John Walsh(missing children network) has a site on identity theft too. check it out.

Keep safe,
janet
