    Angry Fraud--Not GDG, not dog related...

    Got a letter from the IRS stating that we underreported our earnings by almost $11,000 and they want $4000 back taxes and $315 in interest penalties for 2006.

    Upon closer inspection, it happens that someone used my husband's SSN# to report earnings through a company in Louisiana.

    I have now spent my day going through the paperwork needed to correct the situation...and I'm not close to finished yet.

    We now have Lifelock and am currently reporting and checking credit histories with the credit companies. Have to hire an attorney to write the letter to the issuing company and am filing an IRS form referring the issuing company for their documentation verification procedures.

    I'm pissed off.

    I am so sorry - some people are nothing but scum! I can only imagine the hassle this will be to get it straightened out. I had my debit card number stolen once and that was a nightmare - this, I can only imagine.

    I hope they catch the SOB and string him up!!

    If that is the case, no security program will stop the problem. Fake documents are produced and used all the time and until the government REQUIRES all EMPLOYERS to verify that the ID's are legit, the false numbers will continue to be used. Those false numbers may be any of our SS #'s.

    The SS Administration sends out letters to the employers after the W-2s are received. The letter states that the following SS #'s do not agree with their records. At that point, all the employer is allowed to do is to tell that employee to go the the SS office and correct any error. The employee cannot be fired or reprimanded in any way.

    I get to go to the nearest IRS office in the morning and request a report listing the income forms reported w/ our SSN#'s for 2006 AND I will be requesting 2007.
    Hopefully we'll find that a different name was used as well as a different address on the reporting form. Then he gets to file an identity theft report w/ the police dept which goes to the FTC.

    These things are a real nuisance. Our credit card number was stolen by someone in Hanoi, Vietnam and used to purchase domain names for a criminal society web site. My husband is a computer expert and was able to trace the path of all this, but who is going to Vietnam to deal with this? Card was cancelled (another pain) and our credit card charges for the domains were refunded. There needs to be a special circle in Hell for these people.

    Lisa, I think that you will find that it is a different name and different address...I would check it out for this year also. Your little worker could still be using your number...with his/her alias name - you can't assume that the name that they use is legit either...

    If the person made 11,000 that year, you got to figure that he/she worked at some really low paying job and maybe not the whole year...

    I wish you all the luck in the world getting it straightened out. You're going to need it, dealing with the IRS.
