    It’s a good thing they caught him. Imagine the damage he would have done with all that private information.

  2. What is wrong with these people? Why don’t they just get on with their lives and leave others in peace?
    Maybe they didn’t have the right upbringing. I believe a child needs plenty of love and direction.

  3. Lisa Mallis says:

    WOW -it’s amazing how much money they stole! That’s about $1000 per victim. So glad they caught him.

  4. Sophie Bowns says:

    Why on earth would people even want to do this in the first place?!

  5. Kungphoo says:

    Wow, that is insane! Thank goodness he was caught and is being brought to justice. I can’t imagine how awful those victims feel.

    I have also seen the identity theft tools used to prey upon their vicitms, as a domestic violence and gender violence awareness activism. It’s an important topic indeed!

  7. Laurel Bill says:

    I get so mad at identify theft – it so screws up people’s lives and they don’t deserve all the headaches. Sure glad they caught this guy … but there are so many more out there that need to be captured and put away!

    Identity theft is one of those things that just get to me. I know people that are still dealing with the ramifications YEARS later after going through an ordeal or identity theft.

    It’s amazing what these people do with their intelligence…very sad.

  11. Jim Striegel says:

    I know so many that have gone through this and I just don’t know if it will ever stop.

  12. Traci Henegar says:

    This is very valuable to share because some people still actually click and answer emails and phone calls. I got one just the other day and knew they had the incorrect info regarding the type of card I have Visa or Mastercard on my bank and immediately hung up!

    I am so trusting, so thank you for bringing this to my attention.
