Identity Theft in New York City
Reclaim Your Identity
Identity theft across the United States has been escalating at an alarming rate in recent years. In fact, a new crime occurs every two seconds! Unfortunately, it is very easy to fall into the trap of an identity thief: The simple act of revealing your birth date and current address to unauthorized individuals online can lead to serious repercussions. You may notice your credit scores suddenly dropping or may even be accused of a crime that you did not commit.
At American Eagle Investigations, we understand that identity theft is a serious problem in our country, and thus we do our part in New York and surrounding areas to put a stop to it. With practiced skill and extensive experience, our private investigators can identify the perpetrator – in many cases someone you have never come into contact with, yet it could also be someone you know – to restore your reputation and place the blame where it is due.
In order to conduct a thorough investigation, we begin by obtaining the following information from the identity theft victim:
- Legal name
- Date of birth
- Social Security number
- E-mail address
- A copy of their credit report
- Relevant account numbers
- When and how the theft was discovered
- The perpetrator’s potential motive
- The victim’s relationship with the perpetrator (if any)
The purpose of the initial interview is not only to confirm the facts but also to have a solid foundation on which to build the new facts for the subsequent trial. That is why it is crucial to come to us immediately if you notice any suspicious activity involving your personal information, such as a false application for a credit card, a letter from a company that you do not support financially, and anything else that you did not authorize.
If you believe that you may be the unfortunate victim of identity theft, do not panic! Simply contact American Eagle Investigations at 212-344-8997 for a detailed consultation. Your New York private detectives will promptly begin gathering the necessary facts to get your life back on track.
