Stolen Identity Used by Man for 10 Years

No, it was not Donald Trump, but rather one of us
regular everyday people who was victimized since
1995. Evidently, the identity theft victim was
first stung over 10 years ago by his former room
mate.

Allegedly, this room mate began living under the
identity theft victim's stolen persona when he
took the following items and promptly left
town
:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security card
  • Bank Checkbook

Not only did this identity thief steal this
North Carolina man's most sensitive personal
items, but thoroughly assumed his victim's
identity by doing all of the following:

  • Secured Bank Loans
  • Obtained Credit Cards
  • Utility Services
  • Paid Child Support
  • Served Jail Time

As a result, the identity theft victim's credit
record was severely damaged. Further still,
the identity theft victim's employment
prospects
were eliminated since his
background records now included:

  • Criminal Convictions
  • Child Support outstanding obligations

As a result of this identity theft fraudster's
damage, the innocent victim was forced to
undergo the lengthy process of getting a
new social security number (ssn) to clear
his reputation and credit record.

When authorities finally were able to confront
this identity theft criminal, he fled capture
for 1.5 years and managed to steal yet another
person's identity.

Imagine yourself being the victim of an evil
twin who's seemingly sole intent in life is
to commit repeated fraud in your good name.

Want to know a way to prevent this from
happening to you or your family member's
identity?


Our tip for today, is to put in place your very own
personalized fraud detection system specifically
designed to scan for your social security number (ssn)
or other publicly available information such as date
of birth (dob) and driver's license numbers (dmv).

As the identity theft victim later found out, fraud
committed against using his non-credit
related
personal information was even
more damaging than if
his credit card had
been actually stolen (
hint, it wasn't).

Imagine the emotional impact from suddenly learning
after a decade of attempting to get a better job
that you had been denied better pay simply because
you were unjustly classified as a convicted
criminal
or child support kiter.

Here's one new year's resolution you won't want to
miss out on. Get you and your family's historical
public information profile (pip) checked out & add
automatic social security number (ssn)
monitoring
to guard against future incursions.

Who ever said crime doesn't pay - at least up to a point?!

Ok, agent 99, you've made me a believer.

Thanks for the tip.
