I heard about this on the radio this morning on the way to work.  They always have a segment from Consumer Reports (CR) and I thought that others might be interested also.  There are 36 states who have initiated this.  Any one can place a freeze on their credit report which means that no one can open an account under your name (preventing identity theft) or check your credit status.  CR said that this wasn't well advertized since credit companies like to check credit status.  There is a charge to do this and you can also unfreeze accounts if you want to open something (another fee is charged).  The small fee seems worth the peace of mind.
