1-Bureau Credit Report, Score† & Quarterly Credit Updates
Being aware of changes to your credit file not only helps you better understand your credit, but also alerts you to potential mistakes or identity theft. It’s very easy for inaccuracies or fraud to damage your credit report and, in turn, your credit scores. Usually, it is a simple clerical error that will need to be corrected. Other times, it could be an indicator of identity theft — something you need to address quickly. That’s why we provide you with an easy-to-read credit report and score based on data from Equifax®. You’ll also receive a Quarterly Credit Update every three months to help you track your financial information over time.
1-Bureau Credit Monitoring and Alerts
Every business day we’ll monitor your Equifax file, looking for activity that could indicate identity theft. When we detect certain activity that could indicate identity theft, we’ll promptly send you a NOTIFY EXPRESS® alert by phone‚ text‚ email and/or mail to help you determine if you need to take action. You can confirm the activity as valid, or take immediate action if you suspect fraud.
Internet Surveillance helps reduce your risk of identity theft online by continuously searching the Internet for signs that your registered bank accounts, credit accounts and Social Security Number are potentially at risk. Identity thieves frequently use chat rooms, news groups, File Transfer Protocol sites and other online forums to buy and sell stolen credit information.

ITAC Victim Assistance®
Our service includes world class identity theft support from experts who can help you every step of the way. Once we've determined that you may have become a victim, our ITAC Victim Assistance professional will:
- Obtain a current credit report and review it with you to look for evidence of fraud.
- If fraud is found, we will notify each of the creditors to begin an investigation.
- Assist in placing a fraud alert at the three major credit reporting agencies to help prevent additional fraud from occurring.

ITAC Victim Assistance can help you with respect to certain activity that shows up in your credit report. However, identity thieves frequently use personal information in ways that do not appear there. If you suspect your information is being used or has been stolen for employment, government benefits or other purposes it is important to contact these organizations as necessary or appropriate. We do not contact these organizations for you. Certain features of our services, such as Public Record Reports, may also help detect that your identity is being misused.
