Q & A

Many of you know I have been a victim of identity theft. I am low income, never charging anything. Now find I have multiple bank accounts in my name and clothing (expensive) store accounts... I am going to the police to file a report. Has any of you been through this? I have no $ to get a lawyer, so will deal with this on my own (except the lawyer I have that I found to help stop the bill collectors (I didnt’ know I had debt)....Am I alone in this?

    • Oh, I’m so sorry your going thru that. I didn’t know this. I cannot Imagine even thinking of someone else getting away with stuff like that, It must just feel awful. I really hope you can get some help on this and find the person doing this to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you Msj.

    • MsJ, I did not know you were going through this and I’m very sorry to hear this.  I have not dealt with this before but I believe it will take some time to resolve this matter.  I wish I had something more useful to tell you!  I hope this gets resolved quickly.  Is your current bank able to help at all or at least provide some advice?

    • You need to contact the credit reporting agencies...

      Equifax, Experian, and Transunion

      I would also file a dispute with all three....ask them what you need to do in correcting this...and it may take years...but I would see about “locking” your credit so nothing else can be opened.  Talk to them about it.
