TAKING STEPS AGAINST FRAUDULENT BEHAVIOR
If you suspect fraud or are experiencing identity theft etc., contact LACERS so we can flag your account and take additional measures to safeguard your account. To protect yourself from fraud, the major credit agencies offer the ability to freeze your credit which prevents new credit accounts from being opened. Even if you do not suspect fraud or identity theft, it is a good idea to consider a credit freeze for the extra protection it brings. Learn more on our website.
CHECK YOUR INBOX!
