Truck Driver Loses His License Due to Identity Theft Imposter's Tickets
A Miami man's driver license was suspended after
an identity thief in another state accumulated
multiple traffic violations in the victim's name.
Since the identity theft victim must hold a valid
commercial driver's license, a divorced father
of one child, he may lose his job.
"This is to notify you that your driving privilege
is suspended by the State of Florida effective
Aug. 22 for a period of 30 days".
What's more disturbing about this latest identity theft case, is the
Miami victim can not even fight back against the traffic offenses in
court because the identity thief who allegedly got the tickets and
paid all the fines. The Miami victim, however, has never even left
the state of Florida.
If the Miami area identity theft victim doe not prove his innocence
soon, he is most likely facing an automatic one-year suspension
because the person who allegedly stole Fernandez's identity hit
a pole and left the scene of the accident in Pennsylvania.
''I have a child to support''
Moreso, this identity thief operating in the northeast part of the
country (not the southeast like Miami) committed a number of
vehicular infractions using his victim's alias causing the Florida
DMV to suspend his license:
On Jan. 18, Fernandez was ticketed after being
stopped by police in New York for failing to
obey a traffic sign. On April 7, he was in
Danbury, Conn., where he was ticketed for
having an out-of-state license for more
than six months as well as equipment
problems on his truck.
By July 4, he had made it to Greencastle, Penn.,
where he illegally changed lanes, hit a pole,
then fled. On July 31, Fernandez returned to
Queens, N.Y., where he was ticketed for a
series of problems with his truck.
''This sounds like a legitimate beef,''
Although the Miami identity theft victim can produce
time sheets and other documentation to prove his
innocence, he may still ultimately lose his
commerical driver's license because
federal laws does not have a hardship
excuse as in the case with personal
The identity theft victim in this instance is not
sure how the thief got his personal information, but
he did recall two years ago when someone in
another state used his credit card but the
blemish on his account had been successfully
