Identity theft

Heads up everyone. Last week my wife noticed a stop had been put on our mail delivery. Not something we requested but we caught it quickly and had it fixed. Friday I received a credit card in the mail I had never applied for. I called and stopped it. I also put a fraud alert on my credit and locked my credit report. I suspect someone found a way to stop our mail and applied for a card with identity info they had stolen, then they could pick up the mail (and the new card) at the post office. I know we’ve all had some mail delivery problems here so just a note to be aware. I almost threw away the card because I assumed it was junk mail since it wasn’t someone I had an account with!
