Denny just received an odd telephone call. A man just called from a telephone order center (you could hear many voices in the background) thanking Denny for his order of "sexual enhancement products" and asking him if he was satisfied with his order. Huh?

Not only did Denny NOT order anything like that, the order was placed using that credit card we canceled after someone tried to wire-transfer money out of Las Vegas on our account a couple of months ago. The scary thing is, the man on the phone read off our actual billing address and was calling us on our cell phone which is a number we don't give out to just anyone. Denny is not concerned, since the credit card is no longer good, but I wonder if they are good enough to find our address and cell phone number, can they find our new credit card number?

So once again I've notified Experian and put a fraud alert on our account. They pass it on to the other two major credit reporting agencies for you, which is nice.

Have you asked for your free credit report lately? This central site allows you to request a free credit file disclosure, commonly called a credit report, once every 12 months from each of the nationwide consumer credit reporting companies: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Take a moment to make sure you haven't been victimized by identify theft.
