URGENT NOTICE – Please read carefully
On May 27th thieves broke into our offices and stole the safe that was in the Secretary Treasurer’s office. There was only a very small amount of cash in the safe but there were many registration books, which contain Social Insurance Numbers, names , addresses, dates of birth, signatures and in some cases telephone numbers.
We have identified a range of Registration Numbers (Man Numbers) that may be affected. If your Registration Number is between 40198 and 47951 then your personal information may have been compromised and there is a risk of Identity Theft and Identity Fraud. Notification letters have been sent to the last known address of all those individuals who are likely affected. Please note Local 502 does not retain any banking information and therefore personal banking information was not compromised.
The Surrey RCMP strongly recommends that individuals check with Equifax to take steps to prevent Identity Theft. Local 502 has also posted a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the full recovery of the stolen documents and/or for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for this crime.
Identity theft occurs when an individual steals another person’s identity and impersonates that individual. By using basic personal information like name, address and social insurance number, identity thieves open credit card accounts, lease or buy cars, rent apartments or even engage in criminal activity using the stolen name.
Please call Equifax toll-free at 1-800-465-7166 or 514-493-2314. They will add a statement to your file to alert credit grantors that you may be a victim of fraudulent activity. This may mean that the next time you apply for credit you will be questioned more thoroughly as a precautionary measure. The credit grantor wants to make sure that you are, in fact, the person you say you are.
There is no need to buy expensive credit monitoring packages. Please speak to an Equifax representative as soon as possible and do not let them upsell you on expensive credit monitoring and credit score subscriptions.
