Frida's Story: Fake ID Made Using Her Name Due to Improper Job Application Disposal

Employment Stories

The Sacramento Police Department called Frida to tell her that someone made a fake driver's license using her name. A large drugstore chain had tossed old job applicants into the trash without shredding them. Someone found and used them to made fake IDs. Unable to write checks for a time because the fake ID had used her real driver's license number, Frida was eventually able to mostly clear her name with SCAN (check verification company). She's not been able to convince one store that she's not the person that wrote bad checks to them and continues to receive collection notices from them.


Frida's name has been changed to protect her privacy.
