Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you believe your information was compromised in this breach, it is crucial to remain vigilant and monitor your financial accounts for any unusual activity. Here are some recommended actions:

  1. Enroll in Credit Monitoring: Take advantage of the free credit monitoring service provided by DG3 through Experian. You can enroll by visiting the Experian IdentityWorks website.
  2. Review Your Accounts: Regularly review statements from your financial institutions and immediately report any suspicious transactions.
  3. Place a Fraud Alert: Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit reports, which warns creditors to take extra steps to verify your identity before opening new credit accounts in your name.
  4. Consider a Credit Freeze: A more severe option than a fraud alert, a credit freeze restricts access to your credit report, making it more difficult for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name.
  5. Report Identity Theft: If you suspect identity theft, report it to the Federal Trade Commission at IdentityTheft.gov.
