One of the most important assets often overlook and not properly protected by many is their credit score. In this special episode of the Martini Mortgage Podcast, Raleigh mortgage broker and Certified Mortgage Advisor Kevin Martini discuss a free way to stop unauthorized access to your credit but also another free strategy to stop unsolicited offers that put pressure on your credit score.
As a supplement for episode 167 of the Martini Mortgage Podcast, information on how to 'freeze it' ... 'thaw it' ... 'opt-out' go to: https://www.martinimortgagegroup.com/freeze-it-and-opt-out/
You will find resources for website, telephone number and address for Equifax, Experian and Trans Union. In addition to website and telephone number for the Consumer Credit Reporting Agency to opt-out.
WARNING: there is no guarantees that a freeze will protect you 100% of the time. One may still steal your non public private information or maybe one may hack into one of your existing open accounts however it is my opinion, the credit freeze opting out of unwanted credit solicitation is the most reliable defense you have in your arsenal to prevent identity fraud.
