This really makes me angry, because the IRS came down on us like the fist of angry god when THEY got our middle child’s SS number transposed in their records and refigured our tax return 3 years running.
Didn’t matter how many times I sent them copies of her BC and SS card. I finally had to involve our US Senator.

Once the wrong information enters cyberspace it can be almost eternal. I just got an offer for credit for my first wife who died in 1991. It was sent to an address which did not even exist until several years after her death. Her name is still associated with mine in cyberspace so they send it to the address I have now. I live at the same place but the address is completely different due to changes concerning the 911 emergency system. I picked a name for my driveway and that is now my address. No amount of calling, emailing etc. can get people to realize that she is no longer living.
