   Yesterday at work I get a call from my wife. The first words out of her mouth are,"I got some great news for you". Right away the first thought that pops into my head is,"Oh great, she lost her job some how!", but no, that was not it at all. She tells me that someone stole her Social Security Number(SSN). With her stolen SSN, some low life opened a account with Verizon to get a cell phone.

   The wife tells me that she called the people at the Social Security place, and they told her to file a police report for stolen identity. She had also talked to he people at Verizon to tell them she did not open a account with them and that she wanted it closed. When I asked her if they had closed the account, she said they told her that she would have to fill out some paperwork and send it back to them so they can investigate everything.
