Freeze! Your credit…

Share

A great way to protect your credit.  Thanks, Margo.

Via Margo Otey (REMAX EXECUTIVE REALTY):

To help protect against Identity Theft try a Credit Freeze.

The 3 major credit reporting companies – TransUnion, Experian and Equifax – allow you to freeze access to your credit reports for a fee of $5/Freeze. Once a Credit or Security Freeze is placed on your account, credit reporting agencies will not release your information to anyone. If someone tries to use your identity to open a credit card or take out a loan in your name, they will be denied access.

A “Personal Identification Number” (PIN) allows you, for the same small fee, to lift the freeze when you need access. You can specify the duration of access – a week, a month, or permanently. After the time expires, the freeze goes back in place.

To complete the freeze on your accounts use these web links pasted into your browser:

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
