Someone Stole My Identity

Today’s 44 sort of reminded me of my track days – I did a knee up with a little twist to that side.Screen Shot 2014-02-07 at 7.30.29 AM

Obviously not me but I needed the beach picture!!!  I did all 44 with my right knee up and then switched to the left side.

Still not me but this picture is pretty accurate for how the move looked (minus the fact that this is a guy!) – almost a bounce each time you lift the knee – plus he’s on a track!!!

Screen Shot 2014-02-07 at 7.34.33 AMThis person knows my Social Security number – he/she has opened up at least one new account using it.

They know my home address (this one really freaks me out!) – the new account they opened is using my address.

They have used other accounts of mine by walking into the store and having the someone look up the card number – in one case the store worker even changed the ID to theirs.

I have filed a police report, cancelled credit cards, called about my social security card, put a fraud alert on my credit.  One of the worst parts is that many of the people I’ve had to talk to on the phone act like this is my fault.

Needless to say, this has been a very frustrating week and I’m sure it will continue to be a stressful process.  Sort of scary because you never really think about something like this until it happens to you.  I truly hope that none of you ever have to deal with this!!!

Happy Friday!


BTW – since it is Friday and therefor supposed to be fun, if you missed this FUN post yesterday over at Cranky Fitness head over and see how you can mix exercise and wine!!!
