    With The Internet & Emerging Technologies, The Risk For Identity Theft Increases

    We have been helping victims of identity theft since 2007. Over the years, we have learned how to quickly clean up a credit report that is ravaged by an identity thief. We have filed thousands of lawsuits to repair credit reports that have inaccurate information on them including accounts open by identity thieves. It can be an uphill battle sometimes to fix a credit report, but we fight that fight every day, all at no charge to our clients.

    Resolve Issues With Creditors and Collection Agencies

    Many of our clients first learn that their identities have been stolen when they are contacted for an overdue debt that they did not incur. Sometimes a debt collector will reach out in a less than friendly way. If your identity has been stolen, time is not on your side. You must act quickly to clean up your credit report or the creditors and debt collectors will believe that you owe the debts.

    Forcing Credit Card Companies to remove Bogus Charges

    If you have charges on your credit card statements, you have 60 days from the date that you receive your statement to dispute the charges. You also have a very short 1 year statute of limitations within which to file a lawsuit and sue the credit card company and the bank to remove any fraudulent charges. If your credit card was stolen or used by an identity thief, call us immediately. We can help you at no out of pocket charge to you.

    Repair Your Damaged Credit Report Caused By Identity Theft

    The process of fixing a credit report is pretty straight forward. However, it’s the details that can derail your efforts to get incorrectly reporting information off of your credit reports. For example, you must write a letter to the credit bureaus in order to trigger your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Writing a letter to the creditors will not do that. You must also write a letter that properly describes the account and the problem. You should also attach supporting documents….better yet….call us and we will do it all for you at no out of pocket charge.

    Has Your Credit Been Hurt Because Someone Stole Your Identity?

    Our Firm Assists Consumers To Restore Their Credit After ID Theft

    In our experience, over 30% of all identity theft is perpetrated by either family members or friends. It happens more often than most people think. A little prevention can help curb a lot of it. You should keep your wallet/purse in a safe place. You should also buy a shredder for home use and then use it to destroy documents with sensitive information on it. Finally, do not give your personal information to anyone who does not have an absolute need for it.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Our New York Identity Theft Law Firm

    Identity thieves open accounts in people’s names, purchase goods and services and then leave the consumer stuck with the bill. When the bill is unpaid and reported as such, it lowers your credit score significantly. The higher your credit score, the greater the damage.
    With just your name, address and social security number, its pretty easy to open credit in your name. With so many data breaches of big box stores, hospitals and even credit bureaus, there is an excellent chance that your personal information is floating around the dark web to be sold. Still, this is no reason not to take some precautions to protect yourself. You can prevent identity theft by not giving your personal information to anyone who does not have an absolute need for it. Buy a shredder and use it to destroy documents that have personal information about you on them. Do not simply throw these documents into the trash. My favorite….don’t use public wifi to transmit or transact personal information. If you do use it, get a VPN. These are cheap to purchase today.
    You will either be contacted by a company seeking payment on a debt or a debt collector. If you are contacted by a debt collector, chances are that the delinquent debt is on your credit report already and sinking your credit score. Your best bet is to review your credit report at least monthly and make sure that everything on it belongs to you and is accurate. If you find something not accurate on your credit report, call us immediately for a free, no obligation consultation.
    Yes, Let us help you get incorrect information off of your credit report. Once that negative information is off of your report, it should be back to where it was before the identity thief got ahold of your identity.
