New Mexico state resources for personal identity theft protection


Note: These resources are specifically designed to address personal identity theft prevention and incidents of consumer identity theft. Because most state and federal identity theft and consumer protection laws are designed to protect individual consumers, businesses generally do not enjoy the same rights, protections, and potential recourse as consumers. Therefore, while helpful in addressing many issues that you may face as an individual, be aware that consumer identity theft information may not be applicable to an incident of business identity theft or fraud.

New Mexico Credit Security Freeze
New Mexico Credit Security Freeze

New Mexico Credit Security Freeze


New Mexico enacted its own state law establishing the availability of credit security freezes for its citizens. The three major credit bureaus  (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) have also voluntarily made security freezes available to all New Mexico state citizens. Innovis voluntarily allows consumers in all states to freeze their Innovis credit files.

Eligibility: All consumers 

Credit Security Freeze Fees:  Per credit bureau. To be effective, you should place a freeze at each credit bureau
• No cost for confirmed identity theft victims to place a freeze (with a copy of a police report or DMV report), or for seniors age 65 or older 
• All others must pay $10.00 to place a freeze
• There is a $5.00 fee to temporarily lift the freeze, or to remove it entirely
• There is a $10.00 fee for replacement PINs, if needed
• The freeze will remain in place until you remove it
