What if I suspect someone of ID Theft, but not my ID?
Vanity | 10/15/2012 | WillNotLiveForAnotherMan

Posted on 10/15/2012 4:23:17 PM PDT by Will not Live for another Man

Fellow Freepers, I apologize for the vanity, but it's for my wife and I know we have some of the smartest people on the Net here...

She was married before me to a foreigner and came to our marriage with a child, who I adopted after the ex waived parental rights for her waiving $3K in back child support. I have never met the man.

He was abusive to her and there were restraining orders 7 years ago, now lapsed. She still lives in fear of him potentially kidnapping our son (threats had been made years ago) or coming back and assaulting her.

She is training in self-defense and we have adequate weapons for self-defense.

She has recently been monitoring him online thru various social network sites, facebook, linkedin... And he appears to be using a new name as a student at a university far from us, she feels he is a con artist of the highest degree and has stolen someone's identity.

Is there anything we should do about this, that won't eventually come back on her?

Thank you for your patience and your replies!

I’d be more concerned that she is monitoring him, it might be viewed based on their history as stalking.
Prayers for wisdom for the both of you.

My recommendation - keep watching and do nothing. If he has stolen another’s ID, and finds out you/she exposed him, then you will just be stirring up trouble you don’t need.

If he’s far away from you guys, why create something that might raise a ‘red flag’ and have him find out that your wife is involved?

At any rate, you may want to alert the University that he’s attending (campus security) and let them know what your thoughts are on the situation.

You may also want to do a background search via 1-800-US SEARCH (costs about $30 bucks) if you have his name and address, for example. Once you get a SSN after doing the search, you might want to verify that it’s “his” SSN (albeit a stolen one) and report it to the three credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion) for possible fraud.

Finally, go to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) based in San Diego — they are on the web, I can’t recall their web site address — and read through their vast resources. They are extremely helpful.

How sure are you he’s using alias? Is he here illegally?
Contact the local FBI

I am not sure about this but I have heard that "PIPL" does a deep internet search.

1st filing a false police report is a crime. That said the question is are you willing to pony up $ to find out whats going on. To keep your self safe, I’d engage a PI to see if he changed his name legally. Since she married him, the divorce papers likely have his SS#, a PI could pull his credit report. That would tell you if he changed his name or is an ID thief. If he is a criminal do nothing until obummer is gone since when we have a real POTUS, criminal aliens are more likely to get the boot.

Stealing someone’s id is no longer a crime. The supreme court has ruled that it is not a crime to use someone else’s ssn if the person who stole it didn’t really know it belonged to someone else. also in lower courts around the country, judges are ruling that stealing someone’s identity is not a crime.

welcome to open borders. laws are only for us to comply with not the other guy. Just ask Obama.
