Identity theft is serious and costly!
An identity is stolen every 30 seconds. In fact, 1 in 3 victims of a data breach later fall victim to identity theft. If it happens to you, or a member of your household, would you know what to do about it?
We’re here to help!
FSB and Sontiq, a world-class, fully managed identity restoration service, have partnered to offer you and your family Identity Theft Resolution Services. Together we provide a comprehensive approach to identity restoration that includes three phases: Discovery, Mitigation/Resolution and Protection.
How FSB can Help
Our Identity Theft Resolution Service is managed by a comprehensive recovery service facilitated by a team of Certified Resolution Specialists who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you. Once identity theft has been confirmed, your case will be assigned to a Certified Resolution Specialist (CRS). The CRS will provide one-on-one support, working with you to restore your identity to pre-theft status.
If you’re an FSB PassKey customer, you will receive our Identity Theft Resolution Service for FREE! This service is also available to customers with other checking, savings or money market accounts for a $15.00 annual fee.

Has your ID or financial data been breached?
Step 1: Take action now
Here are the steps to protect yourself in the event of fraud or ID breach:
- Contact the fraud departments of each of the three major credit bureaus.
- Get a copy of your credit report, which is free to ID theft victims.
- Have your file flagged with a “fraud alert tag” and a “victim’s statement”. New accounts will not be able to be opened.
- Require that the fraud alert remain in place for seven years, according to PrivacyRights.org.
Step 2: File a police report
Filing a police report is an important step during this process. Other steps include:
- Contact your police department to file a report to dispute unauthorized charges and for any insurance claims.
- Visit the FTC or call 1.877.ID.THEFT (1.877.438.4338) and fill out an ID Theft complaint, which will enter your case in the FTC’s “Consumer Sentinel” database, a nationwide list of ID theft cases.
Step 3: Close all compromised accounts
If you have compromised financial or billing accounts, close them as soon as possible and the list may be daunting. The list may include:
- Close accounts for banks, credit card companies and other lenders, and phone companies, utilities, ISPs, and other service providers. You may need to open new accounts but this will safeguard against additional fraudulent charges.
- Dispute unauthorized charges. The FTC offers a sample dispute letter and sworn affidavit form. This may require a sworn statement and a police report.
