Identity Theft

If you have any questions about identity theft or if you think someone is trying to scam you call the Colorado Bureau of Investigation hotline toll free at 855-443-3489. 

If you find that you're a victim of ID theft, the Windsor Police Department urges you to:

1. File a report with the Windsor Police Department. Get the report number or a copy of the report in case the bank, credit card company, or others need proof of the crime later.

2. Contact the fraud departments of each of the three major credit bureaus and report the theft. Ask that a fraud alert be placed on your file and that no new credit be granted without your approval.

4. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) asks that you call the ID Theft Clearinghouse tollfree at 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338) to report the theft. Counselors will take your complaint and advise you on how to deal with the credit-related problems that could result from ID theft. The Identity Theft Hotline and the ID Theft website give you one place to report the theft to the federal government and receive helpful information. Information booklets are available from the FTC in both English and Spanish.

By sharing your identity theft complaint with the FTC, you will provide important information that can help law enforcement officials track down identity thieves and stop them.
