Added note- the number for the Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General Fraud Hot Line is 1-800-269-0271. You should notify this office if your social security card replacement is stolen.

Credit Monitoring – while credit monitoring can get pretty expensive, it is one of the most effective ways of detecting identity theft.
