Re: Fresh Start and Identity Theft

Huh?

 

What happened? I'm guessing Identify Theft, how did it happen etc? I'm guessing you already notified the credit bureaus, credit card providers, authorities etc..

 

I'm so sorry to hear that..Has to be very hard!!

Can you provide your new social to your current creditors so that your info that is accurate gets put into the new file?

Re: Fresh Start and Identity Theft

I'm not sure. You can start fresh and it probably wouldn't hurt. You can close all current accounts and open a new card to get you going again.

Re: Fresh Start and Identity Theft

That would set you up nicely if they are all approved.
