New Hampshire Enacts ID Theft Law

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 5, 2006

Press release, May 31, 2006: “Gov. Lynch today signed Senate Bill 334, which will allows victims of identity theft to ask their credit reporting agency for a “credit freeze.” Once they do, their credit reports cannot be forwarded without their consent or involvement, which will help prevent identity thieves from using people’s good credit against them. A credit freeze will also prevent criminals from being able to open new lines of credit in their victims’ names…The law goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2007.”
