Re: identity theft


How did you freeze your credit reports, I ve seen it before but can't remeber?
There's a California law that says they have to let you freeze them. You can only do it it some states. I contacted each of the three agencies and set things up. Note that this is feasible because we never apply for credit or loans. It costs $10 to temporarily unfreeze your credit history.

Also, I think you are using Bank of America/Quicken and Fido from Memory.
No, I'm a Vanguard diehard. My BillPay is through my local bank.

Re: identity theft

as i type this im on the verge of making a fraudelent credit card bust at work.. got a call from supposedly a deaf person thru a relay operator at work. he wanted pricing on some expensive equipment.

i couldnt stay on the line with the operator typing so i told him e-mail me with his request. i quote him about 10,000 and request info on his company......he e-mails me back and wants to give a credit card and have his shipper p/u this order at our place .

i google the address he gave me for his company and it came up as a different company name. so i called them and they never heard of this guy.

the plan is to get the credit card numbers and call the bank to verify with the card holder that this is a fraudulant transaction...

we will then call the cops and see what the next step is...

my own feeling is they will do nothing as there is no victim at this point but we shall see.
