Identity Theft Protection
Think you don’t need identity theft protection? Think again.
Identity theft is consistently a leading complaint to the Federal Trade Commission. Rampant data breaches, affecting millions of records, are putting consumers at great risk of identity theft. It can happen to anyone—regardless of your age and income, where you live, or how careful you are.
Restoring your identity on your own can be time-consuming and stressful. After a while, some people give up, leaving them to contend with the aftermath of identity theft for years to come, including fraudulent bills, collections activity, damaged credit, and even criminal records.
Chesapeake Bank is delighted to provide identity theft recovery services to all personal checking account holders at no cost.
Fully Managed Identity Theft Recovery
If you become a victim or suspect identity theft for any reason, simply let us know. You do not have to confirm identity fraud before seeking assistance. We will put you in touch with a professional Recovery Advocate who, depending on your identity fraud incident, will:
- Perform research to determine the extent of the problem, including a review of all three credit reports (if appropriate)
- Assist with the placement of fraud alerts with the three major credit bureaus
- Write letters and make phone calls on your behalf to dispute fraudulent information
- Coordinate with government agencies, financial institutions, creditors, etc. to resolve incidents
- Create and then maintain a case file to assist law enforcement in the prosecution of the perpetrators
- Follow up with you after recovery
