My business has fallen victim to business fraud and/or identity theft. What should I do?

First, Experian recommends that you place a fraud alert with Experian and any of the other credit bureaus. To place a fraud alert on your Experian business credit report, simply send Experian Commercial Relations a letter requesting that a fraud alert be placed on your business credit report and include a brief explanation why. You will need to include the signature of the company's business owner, along with that person's contact information. Experian will add a message to the company's business credit report asking that the business be notified prior to any lender extending business credit.

Then, sign up for a business monitoring of your company's credit report. A great way to help protect yourself and your business name is to regularly check your company's business credit report for unusual activity that might indicate fraud. Experian has a service called Business Credit Advantage which provides unlimited access to your business credit report for a one full year. Plus, this service monitors your profile daily and sends you email notifications of any changes to your business credit report or score.
