How to get through having your identity stolen

Friday, 19 May 2006, 1:17 AM EST

I was the victim of Identity theft 5 years ago. In my case they got cell phones, bought furniture and TVís from ďRent to OwnĒ got power and lights and a land line telephone all using my name and SSN. I had no idea until I had a bad mark show up on my credit report. This was four years ago. It took 100+ hours to clear up the mess and to this day it keeps coming back every once in awhile. In my case, I suspect that my ID theft was a result of some kind of employee abuse or neglect at the headquarters of my health insurance company - either the employees were stealing my information, or someone didnít shred important documents. They are located in Inglewood, California and thatís where all of the ID theft happened. Coincidence boys and girls?
