Forgery or fraud
What to do
In Minnesota, identity theft is a crime only when it causes you to lose money. To make an identity theft report:
- Contact 311
- Go to a police precinct to make a report in person
- Report identity theft to the Federal Trade Commission online or by calling 1-877-438-4338
You should also contact a credit reporting agency for a credit report and to request that they put a fraud alert on your data.
If the suspect lives in Minneapolis or the money or product was sent here:
The Federal Trade Commission can help you safeguard your identity online.
Lost or stolen driver’s license
Report the loss or theft to the Minneapolis Police Department, and apply for a new driver’s license as soon as possible.
Go to Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services and ask them to flag your driver’s license as stolen to help prevent identity theft.
