NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Anthem data breach last February has customers concerned their stolen info may be used, or may have already been used, to file fraudulent tax returns.

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen, who has taken the lead in tracking and monitoring the fallout from the breach, said to date there is no hard evidence that stolen information has been used to file fraudulent tax returns.

However, he strongly advises those impacted by the breach to get free credit monitoring offered by Anthem.

“You are entitled, as a victim of this breach, to two years of free credit monitoring and unfortunately only a small, small, tiny percentage of those who are entitled to this two years of free credit monitoring have signed up for it,” he told WCBS 880’s Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

Jepsen said it’s critical because many of the hackers who steal personal information often wait for months or years to sell it on the open market.
