How does a consumer request a freeze?

To place a freeze in Arizona, you must write to each of the three major credit reporting agencies. Arizona law allows a fee of $5 per consumer reporting agency to place a security freeze. There is also a $5 fee each time you temporarily lift or remove a security freeze. There are no fees if you provide proof that you are a victim of identity theft. To prove you are a victim you must send a valid copy of a police report document your identity theft complaint. If you lose your PIN, you may be charged $5 for a replacement. You should contact each consumer reporting agency for specific instructions on placing a security freeze
