Fraud can be as simple to detect as a transaction on your credit card; in other cases, it is more insidious. For example, the identity thief may use your social insurance number to take out loans, such as a car loan. Your Equifax credit report can suffer serious consequences!
Have you been a victim of fraud? L’Ami Auto Crédit in Chicoutimi, La Malbaie, Baie-Comeau, Alma and Sept-Îles knows what to do. We will accompany you through this ordeal and advise you so that it doesn’t happen again!
First, if you have been a victim of fraud, we will report it for you to TransUnion and Equifax. In addition, a potential fraud alert with the credit agencies will prevent your information from being used again. You can count on comprehensive assurance: our experts know what they are doing!
Even more important than remedying the situation, we will also help you prevent it from happening again as much as possible. Some useful tips:
- Don’t keep unnecessary credit cards and official documents (social insurance card, passport, etc.) in your purse or wallet if you don’t have to;
- Never leave your purse or wallet unattended, even in public places that you think are safe!
- Don’t put your confidential documents in the recycling bin: bank statements and tax returns are an open door to fraudsters. They should be shredded.
