  • Identity Theft Victim Checklist This California state document lists the actions identity theft victims may take to clear the damage to their records. Provides relevant information for victims, such as how to complete an identity theft affidavit, what to do if debt collectors call, what to tell creditors, and the contact information for the three major credit bureaus.
  • Federal Trade Commission's Deter, Detect, Defend Identity Theft Tri-fold brochure available via the Federal Trade Commission. Similar information to the university identity theft brochure, but is geared to a general audience and does not include the university resources.
