If you are a victim of identity theft, the Grandview Police Department would recommend you do the following:
Immediately file a police report with the Grandview Police Department and keep a copy of that report. Many banks and credit agencies require such a report before they will acknowledge that a theft has occurred. For the police report download and fill out the Grandview Police Department Identity Theft Affidavit.
Contact the three primary credit reporting bureaus to have a security alert or freeze placed on your report. Also, request a copy of your credit report and review it for any unauthorized activity.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has authority to prosecute identity theft at the federal level. Report identity theft to the FTC by calling (877) ID-THEFT or (877) 438-4338, or visit their FTC Identity Theft Webpage.
