  • Description:
    The FDIC, along with the other federal financial institution regulatory agencies and the Federal Trade Commission, has issued the attached final rule and guidelines on identity theft "red flags" and address discrepancies. The rule requires that financial institutions and creditors implement a written identity theft prevention program, that card issuers assess the validity of change of address requests, and that users of consumer reports reasonably verify the identity of the subject of a consumer report in the event of a notice of address discrepancy.
