    I read the title of this thread and was hoping for a link to some article on identity theft as I didn't think I'd ever see a thread about you being a victim of it. Sorry to hear that. Good luck with the battle.

    Actually, as a victem of identity theft, with a police report, you should be able to get a free report from all three major bureaus.
    You can actually get a free report from all three yearly.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    I recently found a charge to Match.Com through my debit card. I called my bank and notified them that it was fraudulent and that I would be calling match.com to get refunded. The bank offered to reverse the charges, and also notified me that there was another charge on the same day to match.com through the joint account that my wife and I have. So not only did someone get my debit card number, they also got the debit card number for our joint account. I have used the debit card for my account numerous times, but neither of us have ever used the joint account card online.

    I sent in a letter to my bank, and also the FBI, because I was concerned that it was an inside job or hack job at the bank. I haven't gotten a response from any parties yet regarding that, but within 5 days, the charges were refunded from match.com

    The only other time something like this has happened to us is when my wife lost her purse about 7 years ago. Whomever found it used our checking account (checkbook in the purse) to order a bunch of porn. The bank refunded us our money, and we tried filing a police report. I went in a talked to a detective, and told him what happened. He said "I don't see how we could find this guy." I told him the company providing the porn requires an active email address, and I actually got it from them. I told him that they could subponea to get router logs to track this guy down. His eyes glazed over when I mentioned IP Address. Finally after I told him the bank refunded us our money he said "Oh, so you have no complaint, because you got all your money back." Damn hicktown cops.

    Exactly what I was thinking... time to setup a transparent proxy at home!

    Yes, I went to the cops. The cop I spoke with said I needed to show them more to create a good police report. More details on my blog...

    Have any of you ever filed a police report? What was your experience?
