The more you know
When putting a fraud alert on your credit report, you only have to call one of the three major credit reporting bureaus. If your alert is successful at the first one, they will notify the other two. And then send you complimentary copies of your credit report from all three agencies.
This is what I learned this week.
And amazingly, for me, the panic level is extremely low. Like maybe a green on the Homeland Security scale?
