If you think one of your Hiway accounts has been compromised, contact us immediately at 651.291.1515 or 800.899.5626. For all other compromised accounts, you'll want to contact the organization directly as soon as you suspect it has been compromised.
Additionally, to prevent this from happening again, take the following steps:
- File your complaint at www.ftc.gov, and then visit the FTC's Identity Theft Web site at www.consumer.gov/idtheft to learn how to minimize your risk of damage from ID theft.
- File a report about your identity theft with local law enforcement.
- Complete the Identity Theft Affidavit and send it to any companies where a new account has been opened in your name. Use of this affidavit is optional for companies, so contact each company to find out if they accept it beforehand.
- Call any one of the three major consumer reporting companies and place a 'fraud alert' on your credit reports. This will alert creditors to call for your approval if they receive applications to open new accounts.
