Usted tiene el poder de prevenir el robo de identidad

Cada dos minutos, el gobierno de Estados Unidos recibe una queja por robo de identidad. No permita que los delincuentes le quiten su dinero robando su identidad. A través de esquemas fraudulentos, los estafadores pueden obtener los datos de su cuenta bancaria, los detalles de su tarjeta de débito u otra información personal. Estos son algunos ejemplos de esquemas de fraude recientes:

  • Un criminal puede llamarle e informarle que le debe dinero al IRS y le pedirá información bancaria o el número de tarjeta de débito para pagarlos. Los delincuentes utilizan su información financiera para redirigir sus pagos federales a una cuenta que establecieron y solo ellos pueden acceder.
  • Un criminal puede contactarlo con noticias de que ganó un premio inesperado en efectivo. El criminal le pide la información de su cuenta bancaria para depositar su "premio". El delincuente puede utilizar su información financiera para redirigir sus pagos federales a una cuenta que ellos establecieron y solo ellos pueden acceder.
  • Recibirá un mensaje de texto y / o correo electrónico de un criminal que se hace pasar por una institución financiera legítima que le pide que llame y actualice la información de su cuenta. El criminal puede usar su información financiera para robar su dinero o establecer una nueva cuenta a la que solo ellos puedan acceder.

Para ayudar a prevenir el robo de identidad, nunca le dé lo siguiente a nadie a menos que usted haya iniciado contacto con ellos:

  • Número de Seguro Social;
  • Información de su cuenta bancaria;
  • Número de tarjeta de crédito; y / o
  • Número de tarjeta de débito.

Las instituciones financieras legítimas, las empresas y las agencias gubernamentales habitualmente no lo contactarían para obtener esta información confidencial.

Además, debe verificar sus cuentas bancarias, de débito y / o de tarjeta de crédito semanalmente para asegurarse de que todas las compras sean suyas y que su identidad no haya sido robada por un "hacker" informático. Informar inmediatamente cualquier transacción errónea a su institución financiera minimizará la cantidad de dinero que puede perder como resultado de este fraude.

Si determina que es víctima de robo de identidad, debe visitar IdentityTheft.gov. El sitio web incluye una lista completa de los pasos que debe seguir para evitar que los delincuentes usen su información personal para obtener ganancias financieras. Esto incluye presentar un informe ante la Comisión Federal de Comercio.
