Once you've completed this important form, send it to your bank, credit card companies, mortgage holder, other organizations with which you have financial relationships and all credit bureaus.

PNC customers will also have access to The Identity Theft Assistance Center (ITAC). The Identity Theft Assistance Center, of which PNC is a founding member, is a cooperative initiative of the financial service industry that provides a free victim assistance service for customers of member companies.
