With all the recent worry over identity theft and credit card fraud, I thought I’d post the contact info for the fraud departments at the three credit bureaus. And don’t forget to keep an eye on things using your free credit reports. Hopefully you have no need for such information but, if you do, at least you want have to dig it up yourself…
