Read the report carefully, looking for unexpected accounts being reported as well as inquiries from places such as banks or government lending agencies where you have never applied for a loan or mortgage. Contact those institutions to make sure no accounts were opened in your name.

There’s no reason not to freeze your credit report, unless you are actively seeking a car loan or a mortgage, or applying for a job where a credit check is required. A freeze is free, and you can easily lift it temporarily to allow access to your report by using a PIN.

Here are the direct links to FREEZE your credit report.
