The FTC has a sample form for reporting ID theft. You can download a copy, with a Colorado notary certificate attached, from our website at FTC Identity Theft Complaint Affidavit.
An affidavit is a sworn statement made before a notary or other public official authorized to administer an oath or affirmation. You complete the affidavit form, adding the information and details for your case. You must sign the affidavit while meeting in person with the notary.
If you become a victim of identity theft, and you need to complete an affidavit, please contact us for Colorado Springs mobile notary service.
