After three years of battling against an identity thief, a Texas man may have finally put an end to the exploitation. Unfortunately, however, it took a fatal car accident to make this happen. Over the years, the man had been fighting against a wrongdoer who had used his identity and personal information again and again throughout the country, according to ABC 15. The identity chase came to an end on May 25th. The thief was attempting to evade police in a vehicle in Fort Worth, Texas while driving drunk. Unfortunately, as he was speeding down an alley, he slammed into an SUV and garage. The crash ended in the death of a woman and the arrest of the man, but not before the wrongdoer tricked police into believing he was the I.D. theft victim and not the bad guy! In the past several years, the thief had used the victim’s information to buy a ring, write checks, and pay for dentist and doctor appointments. As a result, the victim had to deal with debt collectors and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) looking to collect on the phony debts. The victim’s desire for justice led him to pursue the thief through multiple states, even confronting the wrongdoer at a highway rest stop before losing the trail. When the victim was notified of his involvement in the deadly crash, he drove more than 1,000 miles from Arizona to north Texas to clear his name. Now, police are working to clear the victim’s name from the crash and put the thief away behind bars, putting an end to his exploitation of the victim. Being victimized by an I.D. thief can seriously harm a person’s credit, leading to financial complications long after the wrongdoing stops. Los Angeles credit damage attorney Howard D.
