GREENSBORO, N.C. -- If you're Identity is stolen, it can take anywhere from a day to months to clear everything up. The sooner you find out, the better.

The FTC says these are a few signs your identity’s been stolen:

  • Debt Collectors are calling about a debt that isn’t yours
  • If your mailbox is left empty for days at a time, check with your mail carrier. Someone might be stealing it or a scammer has rerouted it
  • Your Insurance company rejects your doctor’s office visit because records show you’ve reached your benefit limit

If your identity has been stolen, report it on the state Attorney General's website.
