Lawyer encouraged the client after discussing the terms of the contract.

Understanding Credit Identity Theft

Credit identity theft occurs when someone unlawfully obtains your personal information to commit fraud or theft, often by opening new accounts or taking out loans in your name. This crime can significantly impact your credit score, financial health, and peace of mind. Recognizing the signs of credit identity theft early is critical to mitigating its effects. These signs include unexplained accounts on your credit report, bills for purchases you didn’t make, and calls from debt collectors about debts that aren’t yours.

Legal Protections Against Credit Identity Theft

California law offers robust protections for victims of credit identity theft. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provide frameworks for disputing fraudulent transactions and errors on your credit report. These laws also offer a basis for holding creditors and credit bureaus accountable for inaccurately reporting information resulting from identity theft.
