I know a few here who were victims of identity theft and it was a nightmare for them.
I shred all my mail (I might start eating it)and do the best I can as far as staying ontop of accounts,etc but anyone can be a victim.
In Florida white collar crime is to some extent given a free pass and the sentence if any at all ,for the first offense is close to nothing UNLESS you are Black than you rot in jail as you should but so should White Hispanics,etc.
"While identity theft in Florida ranks highest in the United States, the identity theft rate in Miami has reached near epidemic proportions, Ferrer said, noting ID theft is the force behind the tsunami of tax-refund fraud. He added that Floridas rate is dwarfed by that in the Miami area, with 324 complaints per 100,000 residents."
