    My identity and SS number were stolen. Someone tried to open a business with my name and several lines of credit. They even filed income taxes with my info. This is a mess.

    The title got me excited for a moment because I thought it would be an FCC abortion.

    Instead it's you having gotten royally fucked by an ID thief. Good luck, man. It's a real bitch to sort out and the credit ratings agencies do everything they can to be difficult.

    Sorry.

    They used my info to charge stolen credit cards. We reported the business they opened as fraudulent and the money that they stole (about $60,000) will be charged back to the customers as a refund thank goodness. They even filed 2013 income taxes before I did with my name. I will still be able to file, but now its gonna take longer. Ugh what a mess.
    The credit beureaus know about it and I'm not responsible for anything. But I gotta go back tomorrow to the precinct and I have 3 clients at work I have to make funeral arrangements with. I got a long day ahead. Sucks.

    Ah, thanks. I'll be OK, it just sucks. I'm so careful with my info so I just can't comprehend how it happened. The only time I had ever used any info online was for renewing my funeral directors license and that is done through a secure website with the NYS health dept.

    Thanks guys.
    I think one of the worst parts of all this is that they have to talk to my ex wife. I haven't seen, spoke, or thought about her in years and for good reason. She works at the IRS and i don't trust her. But I don't think she would ever do anything like this. The police have no idea who or where this originated yet.

    It seems like if she is an IRS agent she has all the more reason to not fuck with you in this way. It would get so much press that she'd have to receive a max sentence.
