    Identity theft

    Has this ever happened to anyone? A buddy of mine was a victim. Has close to $20,000 worth of bills that aren’t his. He filled out a police report to get it off his credit report. The cops told him they really can’t do much for him, probably won’t ever catch the person. It will take about 4 weeks before it’s off his credit report. Anyone know anything about it? What he can do?

    If it's really off of his credit report in 4 months, I'd be surprised. I know a couple of people that have had something like this haunt them for years. I don't know what the right thing to do to make it go away is, but I know you have to stay on top of it and be VERY persistent.

    peace,

    Hey bro, happened to me a few months back. SuckS!! Make sure he puts a fraud alert on his credit. That way if someone trys to do it again they have to call him to verify its him before they issue the credit. Good luck!!
