Some Fucker Tried To Open An Account...

...with my wife's ID today, or recently, through Capital One Bank. They contacted me about it today and dealing with that took all the time in my half hour lunch. I checked her credit report and mine this evening when I got home. It does not look like anything is amiss, at least not yet. As I understand it, it can take a month for something to show on the credit report. Anyway, it did show credit inquiries made by capital One on both her and me a couple of days ago. Now I have to call them back to see why they ran a check on me too, maybe just part of the checks they ran when the fraudster tried to open an account in my wife's name or maybe something else targeting me.

I have at least two credit protection plans at the current time, my wife at least one plan, none of them picked this up and reported it to us! What could I expect, I got one from a private company where my identity was stolen and another (including my wife's) for the U.S. government after OPM let thieves steal tens of millions of federal employees and retirees info. Oh well, am keeping my fingers crossed and will have to check with those credit & ID protection plans to see what is going on and why they did not catch it and report it to us.

All the best,
Glenn B
