This packet contains information which will assist you in the correction of your credit and will help ensure
that you are not responsible for the debts incurred by the thief. In addition, this packet includes
information that will allow you to obtain financial records related to fraudulent accounts; which, if
requested, you will need to provide to law enforcement. We recognize that some victims are only
interested in the correction of their credit and do not necessarily wish to pursue prosecution; therefore, we
request that you only submit this packet to the Wichita Police Department if you desire prosecution. It is
important to understand that in the event a suspect is identified and arrested and the case proceeds to
court, you as the victim would most likely be required to appear and testify.
It is important to note that even if a suspect cannot be identified for prosecution, it will not affect your
ability to correct fraudulent accounts and remove them from your credit. Furthermore, when you report
your theft to the Wichita Police Department, all of the relevant information from your case will be entered
into our database which will allow us to cross-reference your report with potential suspects who are
involved in or have been arrested on other cases.
