Texas Get Credit Freeze Identity Theft Protection

An important new law has taken effect for
Texas residents this past Saturday by
providing the right to "freeze" their credit
report without needing a police report.

As first reported by The Dallas Morning News,
Texans now join the list of several dozen other
states which already have credit freeze laws
available to their citizens to seen proactive
protection against identity theft:

People should be allowed to freeze their
credit files as soon as they discover
that their personal information has
been exposed.

"It's like putting your credit report
in a safe deposit box for which you and
the credit reporting agency has keys."

So, our tip for today is for all residents
of the state of Texas. Contact the 3
major credit reporting bureaus in
writing to request your personal
credit freeze.

Also, make sure to tell your friends and
family members residing within Texas of this
important new method to fight personal
identity theft.

One would think such a large populated state as Texas would
enacted stringent legislation
far sooner.
