Identity Theft

Well my identity has been stolen. And with my identity it appears that about $3200.00 has been stolen too. Luckily my credit card companies and my bank are good about fraud detection and noticed so I won't be charged for any of it. I guess they questioned me spending $300 at the apple store in the middle of the night. I don't seem like an apple store midnight shopper. They also questioned all the other crazy charges.

What's funny is that the person that stole my identity is my ex boyfriend. I guess there is always a reason they are the ex. He wasn't even sneaky about it. I ended up getting an email from one of the businesses that he was using my info at that had his email included in it. So it wasn't hard to figure out. What I can't figure out is how he got all my info. The real kicker is that he maxed out one card at $1300 so he paid it off with money from my checking account! Then he put another $1300 on the card before it got stopped. So the money will be returning to my account and the other charges are being credited also. The only way the credit card company will do that though is if I file a police report.

Due to the horrible weather here the police department won't take the report till morning which is fine by me. I'd like to go to bed soon. But after that they will just have to arrest him. I'm really not even mad. I'm really disappointed that he made these choices that are going to land him in jail. Stealing is just wrong. While I'm not mad yet I may be mad when the credit report I just ordered shows up. If he has done other things that aren't so easy to fix I'm going to be very upset. I work hard to maintain good credit so he better not jack that up.

Good times here!

Well, you are taking this well so far. I would be livid. I so hate those who steal from others. Yep, you are better off without this guy. Have a great day. :)
