I Am A Victim of Identity Theft

(Note: This person is a close friend of mine in Arkansas , but she does not feel she can even give her name because her employers may see it as racial bias. I know it is true because I talked to her weekly as she worked through these problems.)

"The influx in illegal immigrants has helped cause identity theft to be the fastest growing crime in our country; I learned this last year. Someone wrote checks for thousands of dollars on my bank account. I closed out the account, and they still are writing checks in my name in various places; so now I am the criminal. I have to carry papers with me proving I am a victim of identity theft in case the law tries to arrest me.

I had no idea that such a thing could happen, but it has cost me my reputation (it hurts having places of business call you because of bounced checks) and brought a great deal of fear in my life because I will never know in the future, until the day I die I guess, how they will use my social security number. It has also cost me hundreds of hours of my time dealing with the problems that have resulted from this stolen identity."

In all fairness, the perpetrator of this crime is of unknown race/nationality, blaming immigrants is uncalled for.
