Please visit http://www.sctax.org/security.htm for thestate's official response and information regarding this incident. Afterclicking on this link, I believe that the most important thing you can do is toclick on the large blue box at the top right side of the page labeled"AN URGENT MESSAGE FOR ALL SOUTH
CAROLINARESIDENTS TO PROTECT AGAINST IDENTITYTHEFT".
This section contains anextensive and comprehensive list of steps you can take regarding ways to protectyour identity.
To summarize this information, we recommend that you do the following:
- Sign up for the free credit monitoring provided as a result of this breach by using the following the directions - Go to http://www.protectmyid.com/scdor and use the activation code: SCDOR123. This credit monitoring is active for one year but the breached data could and would likely continue to circulate in criminal circles forever. This means that if your information was disclosed, you will need to continue to monitor your credit even after this free service has expired, or purchase additional identity theft coverage.
- Alternatively, you can use a paid service like LifeLock.com.
- Routinely review your credit reports, credit card activity and bank activity/statements.
- Place fraud alerts with the four credit agencies below.
- Shred or completely destroy all documents containing Personally Identifiable Information or account numbers.
- Stop all new credit or insurance solicitations https://www.optoutprescreen.com
- Consider "Freezing" your credit - the most significant action you can take to prevent a thief from opening an account with stolen identity information is to put a "Freeze" on your credit reports, which is akin to putting a password on your credit, and anyone accessing your credit would need your permission to access it. South Carolina residents can do this with no charge. You must do this with each of the four credit reporting agencies:
- Equifax - https://www.freeze.equifax.com/Freeze/jsp/SFF_PersonalIDInfo.jsp
- Experian - http://www.experian.com/consumer/help/states/sc.html
- TransUnion - http://www.transunion.com/personal-credit/credit-disputes/credit-freezes.page
- Innovis -https://www.innovis.com/InnovisWeb
We hope that the above is helpful to you in protecting yourself from the current breach and any future breaches. We will try to keep you updated as this situation progresses.
