    I got a letter from the IRS saying someone tried to get my records or something. They recommended I put a fraud alert on file with the 3 credit bureaus so I did.

    It's pretty common for someone to get a list of SS#s then file a bunch of fake tax returns and pocket the refund

    Thanks for the link, had no clue about this program.


    I just got a letter from OPM that my bday/SSN/former addresses might of been compromised by the hack.


    Just glad that my personal info will help some upper level Chinese bureaucrat get off to an imported Russian sex slave.

    :hat:

    This should stop anyone from opening accounts using your info. If you need to open a new legit account you just unfreeze for a few days. It's a good idea.

    If they tried to get a refund under your name, you'll have to jump through a few hoops for the IRS.

    I've got a fraud alert, but it must be renewed every 90 days. Credit freeze stays on, but don't you have to pay $$ to have it frozen and each time you unfreeze?
