What You Can Do Now

  • Review Your Accounts: Keep an eye on your bank statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activity. If you spot something suspicious, report it immediately to your financial institution.
  • Consider a Credit Freeze: Placing a credit freeze on your files makes it more challenging for someone to open a new account in your name. Remember that a credit freeze does not affect your credit score.
  • Stay Vigilant: Be wary of phishing attempts. Scammers may try to use the breach as a way to trick you into giving away more personal information.

Next Steps

If you confirm that your data has been compromised, consider taking additional steps such as:

  • Setting up fraud alerts with the major credit bureaus.
  • Filing a report with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) if you experience identity theft.
  • Contacting local law enforcement to file a police report.

Remember, staying informed and proactive in monitoring your personal information is the best defense against identity theft and fraud. If you have any further questions or need assistance, you may reach out to Permian Resources Corporation directly for support.
