This is the second time in my life that I've been attacked! This morning I received an email saying my checking account had been over drafted. I immediately checked my account from my phone, and sure enough, $0.00 in my checking,, and someone/something of the name "Viva Gr Marousi" was the one who took the money. Lucky me, I'm poor, and only had $167 for them to take. I called Wells Fargo, and they told me my account had been locked due to suspicious behavior (Yay!), and that I will be refunded the money within 10 days. Also, they put out a fraud alert on my account. Five different places had tried to take out over $900 before the $167 was taken out, but they were all declined (yeah, because I'm broke).
Long story short, a working man can't have anything between taxes and thieves. . .
edit: The first time identity theft got me was when I was four years old. Someone opened a Chase credit card in my name. I didn't find out until a couple years ago when I checked my credit score.
