My parents could be potential identity theft victims: What else can we do now?One week ago, we lost a USB flash drive at a public library which contained personal information about my parents. They could become targets of identity thieves.
We know for sure that they DO have:
-Home telephone number
-Date of birth
-City of birth
-Social Security number(number, not the physical card)
This goes for both my mom and my dad.
What they DO NOT have:
-Physical credit card
-Credit card number
So basically, all the information they have about us in on paper; they have no physical forms of ID from us.
So far, we HAVE:
-Contacted the police(they wouldn't let us file a report since the crime hadn't actually HAPPENED yet)
-Contacted Equifax(who in turn, contacts Experian and TransUnion), and set up fraud alerts on our credit files
-Withdrew all our money from the bank
What else should we do? Should we cancel our credit cards even if they don't have our credit card number? Are they able to obtain a copy of our driver's liscence even if they don't have a physical copy of the old one? What should we do if they try to redirect our mail with a change of address?
Thank you all for your responses. If you have questions about the situation, feel free to ask.
