Kind of funny

My dad would have done it to me, if he would have been smart enough to figure out how to do it.
 
2013-12-29 02:00:22 AM
My mom did this to me. 12 years ago. I still won't speak to her.

My father's identity is good for a top secret clearance, so it's well protected. Mine, I have no idea. In my youth I had an arrest, and bailbonds-man, disappear. I think the military industrial complex expected me to follow in my parents footsteps (my moms a DoD contractor bigwig) but I've landed on professional bum. If someone offered me an interesting gig I'd go black, but I think my most interesting college sketch is already capable of war crimes (looked an awful like something currently deployed). I'd love to work on Sterling Cycle hybrids for civilian use, if I could get a relevant gig.

I think I'll try for talking head. I'm bored with rooting around for used books.

My POS father stole my license plates once. He had his license revoked but decided that wasn't going to stop him from driving to his favorite bar. He replaced them with another set he stole from another criminals car and it got 16 yr old me pulled over, dragged out of the vehicle, and arrested in the grocery store parking lot. Miserable bastard.

The dad later closed the account with a $2,235.95 negative balance.

I didn't know that was even possible anymore.

I've had my identity stolen a few times. F*ckers keep giving it back.

Is it wrong that think you are a son of a prick ? (well I guess we all are)

In my last career as a cable debt collector I have seen this many times. The saddest was when the kid answered her cell and explained that her dad used her identity since he already had burned through his and multiple siblings. Turns out that we already shut it down on him four times for not paying. I wonder how many kids he had to do this to.
 
2013-12-29 02:35:12 AM
My ex did this to each of our daughters. He just borrows money from our sons but he had his girlfriends call cable and cell phone companies pretending to be each of the girls and used their SSN's to get utility services.

My dad did this to me when I was 18. I found out about it when I was around 25, so I can sympathize with this person to some degree.
 
2013-12-29 02:44:30 AM
My dad did this to me. Didn't find out until a decade later, took another decade to finally clear everything up, and about 100k. He was a real piece of work.
 
2013-12-29 02:45:14 AM
So subby,  you are stating that your father is Catholic (Want to fark a young boy?) rather than Jewish (out of what?)

Actually, parents stealing the children's identities is old news.
 
2013-12-29 02:52:56 AM
My GF's mum did this to her. Running up over $3500 in phone bills. GF was trying to clear things up with the phone company and the phone company rep didn't believe her stating "That's ridiculous! A mother would never do that!".
 
2013-12-29 03:48:44 AM
Meh. You steal his youth, he steals your identity. And so it goes.....

I have a friend that can arrange that sort of thing in The Valley. But make sure you are sure. We're talking about a few thousand cumulative miles of cock per scene, buddy!

I knew this girl in high school whose folks had several credit cards in her name. She was allowed to use them pretty much whenever she wanted to, but otherwise a lot of shiat was paid using those cards. Stuff like a vacation to Hawaii and another to Europe and such. Clothes, car repairs etc. All for themselves.

The day after she turned 18 her parents tossed her out of the house, cut those cards up and quit paying them. She had no real job, was supposed to go to a good and rather expensive university in California but her credit rating was pretty much in negative numbers and she couldn't even rent an apartment, much less get the student loans she thought she had already set up.

The punchline was, that her parents pretty much did nothing illegal. It's my understanding that this sort of thing is not only legal, but not even all that uncommon.
 
2013-12-29 04:16:43 AM
Meh. My dad is  still (after six years) attempting to stick me and my brother with a 300K+ loan that we didn't take out.

If it weren't for the fact that my entire family would be homeless if he couldn't make the payments, I would have his butt thrown in jail.
 
2013-12-29 04:22:48 AM
My mom used my brother's SSN to run up all sorts of utility bills after she was blacklisted from everything.  No doubt she would have done the same thing to me if I hadn't kept my SSN card under lock and key and moved out as soon as possible.

With the trashy folks I grew up with it was pretty common for the caller ID to show that a four month old baby was calling me.

My cousin's father stole his.

I'm pretty sure minors aren't supposed to enter into credit contracts.  I'm also pretty sure that under no circumstances are you allowed to enter into a contract pretending to be someone else.

After my parents had to declare bankruptcy due to an attempt at a business I have  only half joked that the next car will have  to b  under my name. Still can't imagine n  parents doing this to me.

Seems like there should be a sentence enhancement if your victim is under the age of 18 or you are placed in a position of trust over that person.

I learned it from you, pretending to be me, dad!

My girlfriend's mother bought a house in her name. She found out when we were looking to buy a new house together. I don't even know how her POS mother pulled that off. Luckily the mortgage had been paid on time every month, but my girlfriend is trying to get the house out of her name without getting her mother arrested.

My girlfriend is much nicer than I am,,,  I'd have had my mother arrested for that.

If it was in my name, I'd sell the house.

It's still illegal as hell. The parents are counting on the kids to not turn them in because they're family. It's still just as much identity theft as when strangers do it.

My stepmother did it to me, too, and she still shows no remorse or guilt. She opened a checking account---which she promptly wrote bad checks on---and a phone line using my SSN.    It took me forever to get a checking account when I became an adult.  ChexSystems refused to remove my file from their system.

Mom did this to my younger brother in an unsuccessful attempt to finance a single-wide trailer. Why, yes, this was in New Mexico.

I sold my first truck to my dad for the price of what I still owed on it.  Since the engine had seized and a used replacement was put into it, he didn't like how it ran anymore and didn't make the payments.  He let it get repossessed while still in my name.  I haven't had a car loan in my name since.  Well I could, but who wants to pay 'no credit, no problem' interest rates.
 
2013-12-29 05:51:12 PM
Sadly it happens more often than you'd think. I used to work with someone whose dad maxed out all of her credit cards and skipped town. It took her years to get it sorted out because the card companies kept fighting with her that someone's father would NEVER do such a thing. Luckily she still hasn't seen him since.

Also, when one of my nieces was 2 she got a pre-approved credit card in the mail and my idiot sister decided to use it. It worked alright at first until she couldn't make payments and the card was cancelled. Considering that niece is now in her last year of high school it'll be interesting to see what happens when she goes to apply for a card in a year's time.

I come from a family of godforsaken white trash who does this shiat all the time.  My sister did it to my mother.  Opened an account @ Rent-A-Center in Mom's name, bought a car & forged her name, and opened up all the utilities on her new apartment.  Promptly defaulted on everything and it all go repossessed, sticking my mother with tens of thousands in bad debt.

But, since Mom had already stolen about $10K from my older brother in a real-estate scam, nobody feels too bad about it.

And, to top it off, my younger brother stole my youngest brother's identity while youngest brother was stationed in Kuwait.  Ran up 3 credit cards to the tune of $14K.

Only my youngest brother (the one who was in Kuwait), my older brother (who got scammed by our mother), and I speak.  We wrote off the rest of the family years ago.  Last I heard, sis was shacked up w/some guy who works for Dominos, living in a trailer.  Mom was in Kentucky on some property she bought w/her son's money, and younger brother was living w/sis.

Makes my Christmas card list really short.

brigid_fitch.
Your (ongoing?) horror story makes my problems seem really small.
(BTW, I have a brother who ran up a 30K bill in my mother's name. Still unpaid.)
Thanks, everybody, for posting your stories too.
I sense much more sadness and disappointment than anger or bitterness.
And a spirit to forgive, but not forget, those offenders who have expressed regret for their selfishness.
Thanks. Thanks again.
