Shelia's Story: Identity Stolen While Away

Personal Stories

Shelia had been away from the United States for the past 4 years and wanted to sell her house in California. She contacted several real estate agents to discuss listing the house and was informed by them that her house has been rented. Someone had been collecting the rent on her house, faked her signature and had received loans on her property. This same person had also been made a power of attorney, bought a business and accumulated a huge amount of financial burden all in her name.


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