The New Entrepreneurs

An Ontario teacher is working to clear her name and her credit score, after someone appears to have used her identity to open credit cards, take out a loan and purchase a luxury SUV.

While her personal bank information was fine, the credit bureaus told her that someone had taken out numerous credit cards in her name, ringing up between $1,000 and $5,000 in charges. Her address was also listed as being in North York, which isn't true. Two cellphone numbers that weren't Douglas's were also registered to her.

Other car purchases were also listed on her credit report, and police told her that a $60,000 loan had also been taken out in her name.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and make an educated guess where this person had licence, address and SIN info stolen (from what appears to be a cautious and conservative young woman)

Ask yourself where you have to belch up ID like this where it could be written down and misappropriated - government agencies? Banks? hmmmmm - and how scrutinous are these agencies in doing background checks on the quota hires they must put in these drudge service jobs?

Jus sayin' I can't tell you how many times I have been asked for 3 pieces of ID and these are the only ones accepted - EVEN THOUGH the only people who have a right to ask for them is a cop or a fed rendering you an entitled service.

the only time i ever had my credit card misused was when i registered for an ontario government surplus website. someone tried to use the card to buy airline tickets to a number of third world destinations.

had to cancel card and have it reissued.
