First with a credit card that I only used for political expenditures like when I demanded a hand recount after my 2012 GOP CD1 Primary race. Soon after using this card to pay for my recount over the phone, I was informed by my bank that my card was being used by someone else. Thankfully the bank recognized the issue, canceled the card and re-issued me another card.
The last issue occurred 2/12/14 when I learned that someone else had stolen my identity and filed a fraudulent tax return using my SS, DOB & name. When I reported it to the IRS, I asked what address the crook had used to file their return. The IRS agent stubbornly refused to give me their location, even the state in which the criminal lived, saying that they did not wish to have citizens harassing those individuals who were committing fraud.
In order to verify that I was indeed the true owner of my identity, the IRS agent asked me to confirm the name of my 2012 employers, one of which was a signature gathering firm. She was very insistent as to wanting to know exactly what initiative I had been gathering signatures for. This is striking as to my knowledge there is nothing on my 2012 taxes that mentioned which issue I was working on yet she was adamant that she wanted to know what my petition was for.
Thankfully I have re-located back to the Midwest, away from the "in your face" corruption that runs rampant in Leftist Oregon. God Bless the many wonderful honest citizens of Oregon, perhaps the Oregon "house of corruption" will finally fall now that both the Secretary of State & Cover Oregon sites have been shown to be complete disasters.
