My ex-husband and his wife have used my name and ssn to obtain credit cards and lines of credit to TWO post office boxes registered in their names. It has taken my 120+ days to get the local law enforcement to act, and then only by going directly to the DA. I have been contacted at work and yelled at by the sheriff for going over his head. Then when I proceeded to list the documentation I had provided to him, HE HUNG UP ON ME. ID THEFT VICTIM STORY
Capital One, Inc. has told me several times they will not release the fraudulent account information to me, they will only release it when requested by law enforcement. A deputy called me yesterday and said she had attempted to obtain the account information and Capital One told her THEY HAD NOT KEPT ANY DOCUMENTATION ON THE FRAUDULENT ACCOUNTS. Thus, they could not make an arrest without it. The deputy also stated they would not be taking any futher action because my credit report had been cleared so I am no longer considered a victim of a crime!
I assume someone here is not telling the truth here.
The people who committed this crime live here locally and EVEN RECIEVE MAIL AT ONE OF THE POST OFFICE BOXES THEY USED TO COMMITT THE FRAUD!!!!!! I have filed a fraud complaint with the Postal Inspector and have sent follow up letters and have gotten no response.
I have again contacted the DA's office. The Assistant DA I spoke with told the treatment I have gotten from the sheriff is absurd and she was going to see that further investigation about both my matter and the sheriff's handling of the case were performed.
I am currently waiting to hear back from the DA.
