Identity theft

I received a letter in the mail yesterday from Texell, a credit union that we were once members of when we lived in Temple while I was working at Scott & White. This was a welcome letter, indicating that our new savings account had been activated and inviting me to come into a branch office to open our checking account.

Seeing how we were once members of Texell, I figured this was just a simple error. Wrong. I called Texell this morning to find out that a 2008 Dodge Avenger has been purchased in my name, with my social security number, date of birth and drivers license.

So today is Protect Josh’s Identity Day!

  1. Wow, what a jackass. Because cars are so hard to find and recover. Guess they hope to use those dealer plates in perpetuity. Hopefully, you’ll be able to get it sorted out without too much difficulty. Since it’s essentially a stolen car I imagine the police will be able to help you out.

    I wonder if you have recourse against that car dealership for not checking drivers license vs. name on the savings account.
