Im glad the police were able to catch the criminal that stole my identity, but I need to do some stuff to prevent my identity from being stolen again.
Some precautions other and I can take to prevent this from happening again is by securing your mail so that others do not get ahold of it, never carry your social security card on you, monitor your credit report, and review your credit card statements.
I need to freeze my credit by contacting the national fraud departments of Experian, TransUnion and Equifax.
Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax
Now I need to contact my credit card provider and my financial institution and let them know my identity has been stolen.
Now I need to contact my local police and inform them of the crime.
