    Hypothetically, what do you have to do in case of identity theft? I've never been a victim of credit card fraud, but I sure would love to know what has to be done, just in case!

    PS: I don't know if you guys know this, but identity theft is on of people's worst fears. Just google it, you'll see!

    First things first, you have to call your credit card company and/or your bank and let them know. Then, I'd say you probably need to change your credit card info on ALL the websites you shared your credit card number on! This is like, the first thing that comes to mind!

    1. Contact your credit card company.
    2. Change your online passwords.
    3. File a police report.
    4. Keep a check on your credit card and bank statements.

    If credit card fraud happened to you.
    1) inform about the fraud to your credit card company or bank.
    2) change password or pin number
    3) check your credit account.
    4) Request the copy of the credit report.
    5) Check your bank statement.
    6) Inform to police.
