An estimated nine million Americans have their identities stolen each year. Identity thieves may drain accounts, damaged credit, and even put medical treatment at risk. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), which amended the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), requires financial institutions with covered accounts to develop and implement a written identity theft prevention program designed to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft in connection with opening new accounts and operating existing accounts. The regulation lists 26 possible red flags in five different categories that may identify identity theft. The identity theft red flags are warning signs that can detect and mitigate the unauthorized establishment of new accounts as well as modifications or abuse of existing accounts, including inactive accounts.
