Commonly, people believe they are victims of identity theft if their credit cards are stolen and used. That is not always the case. If your credit card has been stolen and used by another person, you are the victim of theft and credit card fraud. If your credit card number has been stolen and used, but you still have your credit card in your possession, you are the victim of identity theft.
If you are a Creve Coeur resident and think you are a victim of identity theft, please contact Detective Cory Mueller
at (314) 872-2543. You should bring these three things when you meet with detectives:
- A copy of your credit report
- Proof that you have requested a fraud alert on your accounts
- Any phishing scam emails you have received in the last three months
