Identify theft in Country Grove neighborhood

Postby Shorty » Fri May 06, 2011 9:01 am

The Country Grove neighborhood is on the SW side between McKee and Raymond. Two neighbors are identify theft victims. How would they get their driver's license and ssn? Maybe it's someone who knows them? The credit card co's are liable for the losses, not the victims, right?

"A 35-year-old Madison man said he is the victim of identity theft after someone used his social security number and driver's license to apply for numerous credit cards in the Chicago area. Madison police said the victim, who lives in Country Grove Neighborhood on the city's far west side, had about $16,000 in charges in his name at Menards and Best Buy stores before accounts were shut down. A victim's neighbor reported a similar story last month, police said. They said that victim had more than $11,000 worth of merchandise bought in his name from stores including Menards, Target and Walmart."

Sounds like someone's stealing their mail - either before they get it or after they pitch it without shredding it.

My mail doesn't have ssn or drivers license.
