This letter is in regard to Thomas Mann’s letter dated Feb. 1. Since you feel that your Social Security number may have been compromised, here are the numbers for Equifax (1-800-525-6285), Experian (1-888-397-3742) and Trans Union (1-800-680-7289).

They need to be alerted of your problem in case anybody tries to open any credit cards with your SSN. You might also think about calling Life Lock. I know Wells Fargo offers identity theft (protection), which could be another option if you are a customer. 

What happened to you can happen to any of us and it often does, so I wish you good luck.
