Placing a Consumer Reported Identity Theft Security alert in your ChexSystems consumer file may help you combat Identity Theft. When added to your consumer report, ChexSystems customers will be notified of the security alert each time they inquiry about you.

  • You have a right to place a security alert in your consumer report, which will warn anyone who receives information from your consumer report that your identity may have been used without your consent.
  • Recipients of your consumer report are advised to verify your identity prior to entering a business relationship.
  • We do require that you provide a notarized affidavit in order for your alert to remain on file for seven years. If we do not receive the notarized affidavit, your alert will remain on file for one year.
  • The security alert may prevent accounts and services from being approved in your name without your consent. However, you should be aware that taking advantage of this right may delay or interfere with timely approval from any user of your consumer report that you wish to do business with.
  • If you place a security alert on your consumer report, you have a right to obtain a free copy of your consumer report at the time the security alert expires. Once your security alert has been submitted, all requests to change any information on your security alert must be received in writing and must be accompanied by your Social Security number and password.
