National Credit Federation President Dave Fulk Says In Response To Anthem’s Security Breach, Learn How to Freeze Your Credit If Necessary

Tampa, FL — Mar 3, 2015 — Dave Fulk, president of National Credit Federation, published a new article entitled “How To Initiate a Credit Freeze.” In the article, he discusses the unfortunate realities of Anthem’s recent data breach, advising readers to be prepared to initiate a fraud alert or credit freeze, if necessary, to protect their information.

Fulk says, “A credit freeze, also called a ‘security freeze,’ essentially puts all of your credit information on extreme lockdown. For that reason, this isn’t the best option for everybody; it depends on your unique situation. A credit freeze is more powerful than fraud alert and credit monitoring because it actually stops your information from circulating without your permission. Because creditors need to see your credit report before opening new lines of credit, a credit freeze will stop identity thieves in their tracks because creditors won’t have access to your reports.”

Dave Fulk, NACSO, CCRA, is the president of National Credit Federation and a national speaker on finance and credit. He has over 10 years of experience in the financial industry, specializing in finance, mortgages, and credit.
