Learn more about NCTUE security freeze (for utilities) and how to place it

Like the credit bureaus, the National Consumer Telecom & Utilities Exchange (NCTUE) is a consumer reporting agency that maintains data such as payment and account history for services such as telecommunications, pay TV, and utilities. By placing a freeze with the NCTUE, you prevent the information from being reported to others.

Identity Thieves may open a utility account, such as a phone line in your name and drive up balances on it, leaving you financially responsible. Companies that are members of the NCTUE share data to aid in risk mitigation when granting new service.

Depending on your state, please select the appropriate exchange data report. Make sure to unfreeze the file before applying for new utility accounts.

You can learn more about NCTUE on their website.
