Submitting a Claim for Identity Theft


If you or any other person believes they are a victim of identity theft, and are therefore entitled by law to request certain business records in our control, we will attempt to verify the claim as allowed by law. You need to do all of the following:

1. Contact Us. Contact us by using the contact information provided in the “Contact Us” section found below in this Policy and include in the letter the following information about the transaction that you know or can readily obtain: (a) the date of the transaction or other relevant act; (b) any other identifying information such as an account or transaction number; and (c) other information reasonably relevant to the transaction alleged to result from identity theft; and

2. Information About You. Include in the letter information that identifies you, including:

- a government-issued identification card such as a driver’s license. You may send us a copy but we reserve the right to have you physically present it to us or our agent; and

- personal information about you of the type that was provided by the alleged identity thief, or of the type that we typically require for transactions; and

3. Affidavits and Police Report. Include with the letter:

- a properly completed and executed affidavit of fact on a form acceptable to us. You may use the standardized form available at the time of your request from the Federal Trade Commission; and

- a copy of the police report evidencing the claim of identity theft; and

4. Authorization for Sharing with Law Enforcement. If you want us to provide the records we provided to you to a law enforcement agency or officer investigating the identity theft, you must specify in the letter who that agency or officer is and supply their proper mailing address. Even without specification, we may still provide the records if you otherwise have authorized that agency or officer to take receipt of the records.

We reserve the right to require without prior notice, more, less, or different information from time to time as allowed by applicable law. Once we receive all require information, we will provide records as required by law (subject to our rights and defenses). If we are required to comply with laws other than federal law, your rights and ours may vary from the above.
