- Call Equifax (800-525-6285) and report your concerns. They'll notify the other reporting agencies and alerts will be placed on the credit records so that no one will be able to open any new accounts without permission from the number holder.
- Check the yearly earnings statement provided by SSA to see if there is any work posted that shouldn't be there. If so, call the SSA Fraud Hotline at 800-269-0271 and they will work with the Inspector General's Office to correct the situation.
- Check out LifeLock.com. They only charge 10.00 per month for complete monitoring services. If anything slips by them, they'll be liable up to $1million in damages.
- We ask to read the waivers ahead of time and explain that no SSNs would be collected.
I'm blessed to be surrounded by precious children of God and hope (and pray) that God will protect them and this information.
