I was one of her victims about a year and half ago. I tried contacting the Lowell police and they did nothing. I contacted the Oak Park, IL police, where I live and they did nothing. Lucky for me one of the credit cards called me and asked if I had requested the credit card. I said no and we found the other 4. At that point she was going by Desiree Eastman. My last name is Gordon. I don't know which is her real name. One of the credit card companies gave me her address 17 Burlington Avenue, in Lowell, Ma. I found her listing on 411. I even called her telling her I knew what she was doing. Last year I got a bill from a collection agency from National Grid for a year's worth of electricity. I had to prove I was living in Oak Park the whole time. Just tonight I got a call (sounded like a collection agency) asking for Desiree Gordon. Only after I got off the phone did I click the Desiree. So she has used both Desiree Gordon and Desiree Eastman. When she closed her account in Lowell in April of 2008 it looked to me that she moved to Portland, OR. Maybe she did and maybe she moved back. I now wish that the collection agency would call me back. Anybody have an update on the case. I hope that she rots in jail.

You're kidding right? She's done this more than once. She's a pathetic thief. Don't make excuses for people like that and don't say we've all done stuff we've regretted. That doesn't compare to stealing over and over again.

I have seen cases, including in a movie, in which the judge was more sympathetic with the criminal than with the victims. Let's hope that a more decent judge will take this case, unlike the one I saw in the movie, whom should end up in jail himself.
If you get your information from the movies, there's no hope for you. I saw a movie once with a wizard, wicked witches a talking scarecrow and flying monkeys. Didn't go around thinking those things were real just because I saw them in a movie.

Just wondering if there are any updates about the whereabouts of this criminal. Lenny - you have no idea how much time it takes when someone's identity has been stolen. Telling the victims to get over themselves - well then you need some help yourself. I hope she gets help. She has some serious problems. The company she worked for was Multi-Plan.If she is out of jail then her sentence was much too short. If she didn't get any psychological help she will do this again.

I lived beside this woman 12 years ago, I knew she was bad news when she and I were sitting out on the deck and she laughed about getting out of paying Comcast or the Gas/Phone company (I forget which) because after they shut her off, she simply used her child's social security and name for a new account. From then on, I kept all my personal information doubly hidden. Another commenter had it right, she is out on parole and living in Lowell. Sadly, in my neighborhood again. In my opinion, she isn't to be trusted in any job that allows her personal information on anyone. I honestly don't know if psychological help will do anything for her, trust me, I know her and in my opinion, she simply doesn't care. She doesn't care that she ruined so many's lives, if anything, I think she only cares that she was caught.

Does anyone still have the complete article? I'd love to read it in full. I can't seem to find it in the Lowell Sun's archive.

Thanks Truth. Too bad you didn't call comcast or whatever company it was to have her found out. She put her gas company bill in my name and I got a collection notice for $1000. I had to prove I was living in Chicago and not Lowell. Her incarceration was far too short. If she thinks she can get away with it she'll do it again. If she does I hope that she's busted right away and goes back to jail.
