If you're the victim of identity theft, or might be, you can use a Credit Freeze Request to help protect your credit score, so that the thief is unable to open credit cards using your name or access your credit history. When you make a Credit Freeze Request, you will have to file a request with each of the three credit reporting bureaus, although they all have different requirements. This Credit Freeze Request quickly generates custom letters to satisfy each of them.
A Credit Freeze Request will lead to a "freeze" on your credit score, but also will mean you'll have a PIN to access to your score (for a new loan or job application that requires a credit check, for example), so you can "thaw" your score for a specified period of time. So while there is some flexibility with a Credit Freeze Request, there are sometimes fees involved each time you need to "thaw" it. If you are in danger of identity theft, however, a Credit Freeze Request may be the most efficient way of protecting yourself.
