In February deputies recieved a complaint that Jamie Sue Bledsoe may have used the name of her infant to open an account with Bright House Networks, a cable company, according to a news release from the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.
An investigation by detectives showed that the cable account had indeed been opened at Bledsoe's address in Brooksville. Copies of the installation work order that were signed when the equipment had been installed at the home revealed that Bledsoe had actually signed the infants name as the customer's signature as well as provided her driver license number on the form as verification, the release stated.
Too bad the technician failed to recognize that the signature and the name on the driver's licenese wasn't a match.

one of the women Axelrod wheeled out to badmouth Mr. Caine bought a house in her baby’s name decades before.
At a certain point can her child kick her out if the house?
Hey. As long as I don’t have to subsidize their losses, they can be as stupid as they want. If they want to open accounts in the names of infants and dogs and then are unable to collect when the “customer” runs up a bill and doesn’t pay, so be it. That is their stupidity. We used to see the same thing with credit card companies. But if they come to Washington moaning for a taxpayer bailout at some point, then I will be pissed.
Sorry, that didn't work this time. Tracked her down in under a half hour.
Good thing we're cracking down on someone that may run up a cable bill
They just tack the loss on to your cable bill.
So you are paying for it.
Saw her pic. KINDA not guilty...
But something tells me that she watches WAY too much television.....
Is she allowed to buy baby food in the infant’s name though?
I wonder if the baby votes?
Probably votes many times.
An ex of mine used to own rental properties - the lower income type. Well, he had a few tenets, one in particular, who used to use their kids names to sign up for utilities and the telephone. The worst scam the one woman used to do was to let teen aged street kids “move in” and she would put their names on the utilities. The bills would be ignored, and when the utilities were shut off, she’d get a new runaway to move in and get everything put in their names. She lived like that for years. Back then the electric and gas co. would let customers ride for up to six months on overdue accounts. Now I think they shut off services at the end of two months. Back in the day the utilities didn’t collect SS numbers or DL numbers, so the low income crowd had all kinds of tricks.
...Bledsoe had actually signed the infants name as the customer's signature as well as provided her driver license number on the form as verification, the release statedThat's quite an accomplishment for an infant to already have a driver's license. Precocious, to say the least. :=)
