DON’T ACTIVATE THAT CARD. But DO freeze your credit report!
This link gives you instructions on how to do that:
(Use the links in this column to all 3 bureaus to freeze your report.)
As well, take a look at your report and focus on “recent inquiries” to see if any banks made an inquiry. That could signal that someone opened a new bank account in your name. Those don’t show up on credit reports, but inquiries do!
Then relax because this is a problem for KeyBank and IDES – but you have no liability. And don’t waste your time trying to report it—because it’s almost impossible to get through their toll-free lines.
As noted at this link — BE SURE to check your credit report for any bank inquiries!!!
