    So I recently found out that my email address was stolen and used on a website I would never or would ever sign up on. I never asked for the privacy invasion and don't feel that I deserve this. People like this are so sick and disturbed. It's so F**KED up when people steal your information. Anyone out there (Mods) have an idea what I should do to stop this??

    I don't wish identity theft on anyone. It really screws with people's lives more than you know.

    Every summer. sometimes twice a year. Every summer someone tries to open accounts with my info. We catch it, and change my account info and passwords again. I don't need much credit so its very easy for my banks to verify its me. Some places are so reliable that i can tell the bank exactly when my info will be used again: I just go into the Apple store in Manhattan and buy anything: within a week someone applies for credit using my identification.

    The best is the guys who wait for a national holiday to try to get online credit accounts - they must think this is 1960 and banks are closed on holidays and weekends. This Sunday i expect a call from at least one fraud dept "Hello this is ... bank. Did you just try to buy a car on your Visa card in San Bruno, Ca.?" Well since you are calling me in NYC what do you think? Maybe we should disable that card number, and you send me a new card by fedex?

    Last year i used the atm card reader to buy a bottle of water from the vending machine in my office; its the only time i ever used the ATM card for anything other than a bank ATM. The next week "Hello this is ... bank. Did you just spend $12,000 at the Winn Dixie in Appaloosa, Florida? No? Did you withdraw $300 at almost every independent ATM machine on the Appaloosa Parkway? No? Did you buy a $1100 TV at WallMart? Do you live at ### Magnolia Drive, Appaloosa Florida?" No, I have lived in NYC for the past 21 years...

    These really happened too.

    I'm pretty sure I know who did it, but he still won't admit it 9 years later when it doesn't matter.

    My ex husband used to have a keg logger on his computer. So I'm pretty sure it was him.

    Seems like for this website, it's easy to just log into the account and change the password. I've been getting email updates for months on this website but I thought it was spam
