While checking with American Express about another matter, the representative mentioned there were two accounts using my SSN open with different names. Needless to say, it was disturbing. A few days earlier, HR informed some of us that a laptop with our personal data had gone missing. PANIC!!!
- My company is offering credit repair through Kroll Associates. They are now working with Amex to investigate the incident.
- Although probably overkill, I purchased a year of credit monitoring for Equifax. Probably overkill, however, I want to be sure of where I stand.
Based upon my review of my credit reports, things are not out of control; however, I will be vigilant until I am sure.
