Sorry to hear that happened. You should add freezing credit to the list - completely free. Takes probably 10 minutes to do initially (PER BUREAU - need to do all 3 - transunion, equifax, experian). After you have it setup up though takes only a few minutes to unfreeze when it is needed. If you're unfamiliar basically it doesn't allow any new credit applications to be opened until it is unfrozen. So you do have to unfreeze it before you apply for new credit (card, car, mortgage, occasionally a job background check). Completely free now (used to cost a few years ago when I started using it but regulations now require it to be free.) Just google freeze experian (each credit bureau- remember to do all 3) and well worth it. Even if someone has all your info they can't do anything, you can unfreeze it for just a few days at a time when you're actually applying for new credit and it automatically refreezes after the dates you say you want it unfrozen.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you be sure to have the EXACT passwords somewhere so you never forget them when you do this. Having worked in sales, some of my customers have done this and found it to be a royal pain if they don't have their passswords perfectly down. Also, the bureaus ask you very random questions, sometimes from you far past, to unfreeze and the customers don't know these odd random old facts that are needed. (One was wanting the address of an ex-wife from about 18 years ago!) You have to go through weeks of sending in all kinds of proof of info to get them unfrozen. So if you go this route, know the flip side of the hassle to doing it and be prepared.

This happened to me last year. Caught it quickly enough to stop them in their tracks but it was still a huge hassle getting the money back and resetting EVERYTHING. Since then everything has a different password, each of my credit reports are frozen, and I opt to hide my email with Apple sign in whenever possible. People definitely need to take online security more seriously because you never think it could happen to you until it does.

nullPointer پیش 2 ماه
Sorry to hear this happened. I use credit freezes. It sucks because I can't get offers from banks I don't bank with and there is an extra step when applying for credit but it is worth it. Also I would recommend using prefixes on common security questions. So instead of "What is your mother's maiden name?" "Smith" do something like "XXXX_Smith". And for those who don't want to use a password generator. Length matters! Using a 16+ character string, like song lyrics is far more secure than 8 random characters.

I am so sorry about what happened. Did you really purchase and signed up for all of these programs? It's a bit expensive for many of us. What are your top three items would you recommend for the best security for those on a budget? I heardof Lifelock ($9.99), VPN - I signed up with TYT Young Turks, and maybe I will get the security key. Where can I get the security key (Amazon, Walmart)? Happy Holidays, and again, sorry!
Brian Jung
Brian Jung پیش 2 ماه
Yes I purchased and signed up for all of these. 1. Get lifelock the password generator. It’s a couple bucks per month. 2. Security key can range from $14 to $50. The $14 ones by Thetis on amazon works great. It’s in the description. 3. You don’t need to get lifelock but they have a cheaper package that is comparable to experian or Discover identity protection that averages $14 a month 4. VPN comes with lifelock but with other companies it’s still only $2-$3 a month. Like someone else mentioned just make sure you freeze your credit and have alerts set up on all of them. The password generator used with Fito security key is the most important. Everything else you have to decide if it’s worth the investment: for me it’s a no brainer

Brian sorry to have this happen to you. And you folks thought computers were going to make life easier. I know, all in the name of progress. Prior to 1985, we didn't have to deal with this nonsense, unless someone in the doctor's office physically stole your file. Let me add, stop using your phone to check banking information and accounts, especially an Android device. Those things have more holes than Swiss cheese. I know is convenient, but risky. Stop giving Google and Apple your credit cards, for the convenience of NFC.

In response to Dereks' pinned comment (and a few others). I had a FRAUD ALERT placed on my credit report because someone was able to open a cellphone account in my name with AT&T at a Walmart in NC ( I live in CA) and I was notified of this the following day.(3-1-2020) I reached out to AT&T and they notified all 3 bureaus. Now I just have to go through one more hoop when opening an account. So the would be thief, inadvertently, created an extra layer of protection for me for one year, which I actually have been able to extend for another year. A free service. Sorry you had to go through this experience, Brian. It's a difficult way to learn.

If you do your taxes with turbo tax they have offer IDnotify which is another identity protection plan you can get. It takes money from your tax return (I believe it was $50-75 for me) and you get protection all year instead of a monthly payment. It has reassured me from so much worried when I think someone has my information

The rest of the cards and loans all got denied.

Brian, your *"credit identity"* wasn't the only thing that was stolen, here. *You actually have five (5) "identities" out there on the market* that you need to be aware of, and proactively safeguard, as we speak, from now on: 1) Credit / Financial Identity 2) Character/ Criminal Identity 3) Medical Records / History Identity 4) Driver's License / Passport Identity 5) Social Security / Citizen Status Identity Only a company such as Kroll can and will restore any one of these "identities" back to pre-theft status. Google: Kroll Identity Theft Shield It takes an expert to steal your identity....so why shouldn't it take a team of experts, or better yet, a global risk consulting firm of experts, to get it back?...

The thing that frustrates me the most about 2 factor authentication is that banks are notorious for offering texting ONLY as 2 factor authentication. As we already know, it's barely an inconvenience to get your phone SIM card duplicated and have someone else access your text messages. Banks need to switch to TOTP 2 factor authentication (the thing that Brian talked about that gives you a code that changes every 30 seconds) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

NCKyle1980 پیش 2 ماه
I'm glad nothing worse happened but also confused by two aspects. If your checking account information was tapped the one day, you went to mail box and saw all these denial letters; that's a terribly quick turn around for a mailed letter of denial of credit. Furthermore, CreditKarma and CreditWise and Experian all have notifications forced to you about new credit report activity. When I applied for a new line of credit I got instant emails inquiring "Was this you?" without having to go through the other suggestions of other commentators of keeping credit account frozen. How was it not forced to you by one of those methods before a business checking breach notification? Thirteen attempts for credit should have sparked an alter to you from one of those systems and I believe you've mentioned using CreditKarma before. :/ Like I said tho glad nothing worse happened. Take care, sir. Best to your non-hard core gamer, good looking Korean American DMV living self. :D lol It also kind of "scares" me the last thing that seems to have been targeted was your business checking if they applied for all these accounts first. :/ Anyhow, best to you, sir. Thank you for reading.

@Brian Jung well. Thank you for the reply. Glad you're covered now. Also, thanks again for the American Express tip about opening a savings account or something in that one video.

Brian Jung
Brian Jung پیش 2 ماه
I believe who did this watched my videos or times it perfectly. I had applied for a new credit card during this time and I assumed all the other hard pull alerts I got in my email and from CK were related to that. I did also get an auto loan less than a few months ago and I assumed there were late pulls just coming on. I would never have thought my identity actually got stolen otherwise I would have noticed it immediately

I can not stress this enough. A vpn is extremely valuable but don't just go downloading any free one. They are free for a reason, they log all your data. So just pay the small price for a good vpn that does not log your data, and also do not use one that is based out of the United States. That is just a bad decision. Go to r/privacy and find a good vpn that community trusts.
