Identity Thieves Target Tax Returns

Identity Thieves Target Tax Returns

Published on November 14, 2023

Andrew J.* was shocked when his accountant notified him that someone had already filed fraudulent state and federal tax returns in his name.

While his accountant had notified the IRS of the situation, Andrew was justifiably concerned that his other accounts may be in danger.

Andrew contacted ID Resolve who quickly moved into action:

Identity and credit monitoring was immediately activated.  This would serve as an ongoing notification for Andrew in case there were changes to his credit report or fraudulent uses of his personal information.

A 7-year fraud alert was placed on his account.

An official complaint was filed with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

To help avoid future issues, ID Resolve instigated a 5-year opt-out on pre-approved credit card offers in Andrew’s name.

These services totaled dozens of hours of work.  All handled on Andrew’s behalf.  With absolutely no charge to him.
