THIS is exactly why I'm so glad I did a credit freeze with all three credit reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax and Transunion) over 10 years ago. Setting up the freeze initially requires a bit of work - you have to send certified letters requesting it - but once it's in place, it's quite a bit of peace of mind. You can unfreeze your credit temporarily when you have to refinance a mortgage or buy a car. Imho, credit-monitoring services are half assed and you're paying a monthly or annual fee for someone to close the barn doors after the horse has bolted.
