No. It kind of works. It lets you know that your information was already used to create an account in the last 30 days (or more depending upon the creditor). So, it isn't worthless. It isn't super timely or a preventative measure either. It just helps you learn you were a victim.

Sure that is what you would need to do but at that point youre a victim of identity theft and you begin the long torturous road to clearing your name. The best advice is to visit the FDIC website for their tips on ID Theft.
The one thing you definitely need to do it contact the police in the locality of the ID Theft since you might live in NYC and the activity took place in Chicago. Then get a report number for your use with all the other great people youll deal with over the next year plus. Pick up a few packs of forever stamps and a handful of certified mail return receipt requested tags too .

Notice of Unauthorized Access to or Acquisition of Chili's Grill & Bar Guest Data
What Happened?
On May 11, 2018, we learned that some of our Guests' payment card information was compromised at certain Chili's restaurants as the result of a data incident. Currently, we believe the data incident was limited to between March – April 2018; however, we continue to assess the scope of the incident.
We are working diligently to address this issue and immediately activated our response plan upon learning of this incident. We are working with third-party forensic experts to conduct an investigation to determine the details of what happened.
What Information Was Involved?
The investigation into this incident is ongoing; however, based on the details currently uncovered, we believe that malware was used to gather payment card information including credit or debit card numbers and cardholder names, and potentially expiration dates and CVV codes from our payment-related systems for in-restaurant purchases at certain Chili's restaurants. Chili's does not collect social security numbers, full date of birth, or federal or state identification numbers from Guests. Therefore, this personal information was not compromised.
What Are We Doing?
We are working with third-party forensic experts to conduct an extensive investigation to confirm the nature and scope of this incident. Law enforcement has been notified of this incident and we will continue to fully cooperate.

For More Information.

What You Can Do?
1. Contact the nationwide credit-reporting agencies as soon as possible to:
• Fraud Alert. Add a fraud alert statement to your credit file at all three national credit-reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. This statement alerts creditors of possible fraudulent activity within your report as well as requests that they contact you prior to establishing any accounts in your name. Once the fraud alert is added to your credit report, all creditors should contact you prior to establishing any account in your name. You only need to contact one of the three agencies listed below; your request will be shared with the other two agencies. To place a 90-day fraud alert on your credit file, log into the Equifax Member Center and click on the fraud alert tab, visit www.fraudalerts.equifax.com or call the auto fraud line at 1-877-478-7625, and follow the simple prompts. This fraud alert will remain on your credit file for 90 days.
• Security Freeze. Place a "security freeze" on your credit account. This means that your credit account cannot be shared with potential creditors. A security freeze can help prevent new account identity theft. If you would like to request a security freeze be placed on your account, you must write by certified or overnight mail (see addresses below) to each of the three credit reporting agencies, or through the electronic or Internet method made available by the credit reporting agencies. Credit reporting agencies charge a $5 fee to place or remove a security freeze, unless you provide proof that you are a victim of identity theft, in which case there is no fee. A copy of your police report or an investigative report or written FTC complaint documenting identity theft must be included to avoid a fee. In your request, you also must include (documentation for both the spouse and the victim must be submitted when requesting for the spouse's credit report) (i) a copy of either the police report or case number documenting the identity theft, if you are a victim of identity theft; (ii) your full name (including middle initial as well as Jr., Sr., II, III, etc.,) address, Social Security number, and date of birth; (iii) if you have moved in the past 5 years, the addresses where you have lived over the prior 5 years; (iv) proof of current address such as a current utility bill or phone bill; (v) a photocopy of a government issued identification card (state driver's license or ID card, military identification, etc.); and, if applicable (vi) payment by check, money order or credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover cards only.)

• Watch Bills, Statements and Mailing Lists. If you aren't already doing so, please pay close attention to all bills and credit-card charges you receive for items you did not contract for or purchase. Review all of your bank account statements frequently for checks, purchases or deductions not made by you.
