I hope they get millions from Kosh Foods! Did you catch the part from the IRS? There may be more years coming? Let's PRAY Congress listens. Until some one in our governments' ID's is fraudulently used......well you get the picture. All we need is a four-digit security pin number after our SS numbers. Probably too simple to comprehend!

This is sickening, used to be your s.s.# was yours to guard privately, now everyone & their brother thinks they have a right to it in order to do business with you.
My daughter's school argued with parents about using the students s.s.# & swore they had the procedure to keep it secure, 1st report card printed out that year, had their s.s.#'s right on top for everyone to see. "Oops", they blamed it on a computer error.
As expected, the legal hardworking people that have their i.d. stolen are in for a long hard battle to prove who they are, it may never end for them, & they're supposed to change their identy & lives because of this, I'm so sorry for them & others that have had this happen, it could be anyone of us at any moment.

It's amazing. Illegals don't need one of their own, but all of us with one are penalized. Things that make me irate?

That's NOTHING! During the immigration debate in the Senate, one Senator (can't remember who) was giving a speech. He told the story of one of his voters that came into his office crying about identity theft. He looked into it and found out that over 100 ILLEGAL cockroaches were using this woman's SS#. He talked to people in the IRS and they said they would NEVER be able to untangle the mess that this poor woman was in.

If I (or any other American) commits identity theft, we get into deep sh1t. But when ILLEGALS do it... no big whoop.

I hate that this has happened. I have known Jamey all my life. Sad part is now they are ruined for life and didn't do anything. Seems like it is almost impossible to fix the mess these idiots cause.

I believe Koch Food should be held accountable for knowing that they hire illegals.

Hit them in the Purse and fire the Human Resource Dept. Head

It was Senator Ensign of Nevada.....the Hearings are available on videotape from C-Span. Stunning charts he showed. and remember also how he credited the toddler who was such an entrepeneur for driving (LOL) each day before K, down to Vegas to work.....stolen???? Paper-rape...Every one should do their jobs while keeping their ears, eyes open...and shut their mouths while following the trails......that's how the illegals do it but we have the upper hand - get 'em out before the election.....we can't support 'em, therefore, the government can't......NOBAMNESTY......he marched with them in Chicago, and promised LULAC in Florida last month to get their path paved.....BS AND MRS. B.O., you stink!!! Tell the truth Illegal Alien and we'll set you free off of our soil....after, we confiscate your belongings to give to our victims of your bad deeds.

Is there a statue of limitations on identity theft ? Taking loans and online loans out in others SS#? Does creating Topix accounts using others email accounts count as i.d. theft ? I would like to file a complaint.

They enter this country illegal,
The first of laws they break;
What else they will not try to do?
What other advantage take?

You are disgusting to talk about her like that!! Her husband's death was tragic and she still grieves over him. You should be ashamed of yourself!
