Identity theft is a growing concern, and Wilmington Trust is committed to helping you take the necessary precautions against becoming a victim. We will also provide assistance and support in the event that a crime should happen to you.

As soon as you suspect that you may have become the victim of an identity theft crime, please immediately contact Wilmington Trust at 1-800-724-2440 so that we can help you to complete the following actions:

  • Check your Wilmington Trust accounts for suspicious activity.

  • Close any Wilmington Trust accounts or credit cards that reveal
    suspicious activity.

  • Open a new account(s), if necessary.

  • Stop payments on any missing checks.

  • Change personal identification numbers (PINs) and website user
    IDs and passwords.

We also recommend that you consider taking the following steps:

  • File a police report with your local police station.

  • Begin the process of notifying all of your creditors, initially by phone, and then in writing.

  • Notify the three major credit bureaus to place a "fraud alert" on
    your credit file.
    Equifax www.equifax.com 1-800-525-6285
    Experian www.experian.com 1-888-397-3742
    Transunion www.transunion.com 1-800-680-7289

  • Request a copy of your credit report and report any discrepancies to the three major credit bureaus. Log on to www.annualcreditreport.com to obtain a free credit report annually from each of these bureaus.

  • Notify utility companies (electric, telephone, etc.) and alert them in case someone attempts to obtain service in your name.

  • Maintain a written chronology of what happened, what was lost, and the steps you took to report the incident to the various agencies, banks, and firms impacted. We can provide a form on which you can record the date, time, contact telephone numbers, person you talked to, and any relevant report or reference number and instructions.
