Identity Theft: What Caught

Your hard earned money? Gone. Creditors on his back every day. Police knocking on his door. His family worked to the breaking point. a l did nothing wrong, but the life of my business partner is the opposite a few years ago. It became a victim of what is now the fastest growing crime in the world.

Identity theft. According to the Federal Trade Commission, since 1999 more than 27 million people in the U.S. alone became victims of this epidemic, more than 10 million last year. Harris Interactive, a market research company, reports that between 2002 and 2003, approximately 19 178 people per day fell victim. Your identity can be stolen in many respects.

For my partner, the thief gained access to social security number and address then requested a series of loans on their behalf. When the bills were due, I suppose that creditors and law enforcement responsible? a l his family felt the impact complete. Identity theft can damage and even destroy a person’s life. Not only the loss of time trying to recover their identity, but also of-pocket expenses.

For my partner, that meant endless battles with the credit bureaus that previously gave himself good grades. Even if your credit destroyed most of the night he did everything he said he restored it. The agencies refused to clear his record and instead, started sharing their information with others. Their mortgage rates went through the roof. a l paid more for everything, but I have yet fallen. With all of this came the burden and fear of him not knowing if he would recover his identity. Six years later, I finally did. He began working with a company within 90 days to restore your credit. Mortgage interest rates fell and returned to pay full price for everything, like the rest of us. And as my companion, we all risk becoming victims. In San Antonio, Texas, television station KENS 5 spoke with a man convicted of identity theft warned: “We do not assume you have, because nobody can take away – I mean in the snap of a finger.” a l know.
