The statistics on identity theft in Arizona are startling. Almost 300,000 Arizonans had their identities stolen in 2007, the equivalent of everyone in Payson having their identities stolen 20 times over in one year. Around 25 percent of the state’s residents have been victims of identity theft in the last six years, making Arizona the No. 1 state for identity theft four years running.
The majority of stolen identities, 36 percent, are used to gain unemployment fraudulently partly because of the state’s high rates of illegal immigration and methamphetamine use, according to Identity Theft 911, LLC.



The Payson Roundup / Arizona is No. 1 for identity theft


Not only is this outrageous, the level of criminal activity being tolerated by those here illegally simply boggles the mind . . . .

Probibly all those white meth addicts stealing the ID off all those honest hard working undocumented immigrants. If only we could kick out all the legal citizens of Arizona then there would be no crime.

You may have a point. Then the supplying criminal element would follow the demanding users out of Arizona.

Ouch!

All kidding aside: Meth usage is fading out for Anglo Whites here in Az but many Hispanics seem to be taking the former's place.

As I have commented on in the past: too; those gruesome killing SOB (which are spreading northward ) have many of the earmarks of Tweakers------covering both the killers and many of their victims.

I live in the Phx area and my mom got her identity stolen, by another American though to support her drug habbit. She (the crackhead) was white by the way, but it doesn't matter. Thousands of dollars were stolen from her.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. About 12 years ago when I lived in Texas someone tried to steal my identity. Fortunately, I was quicker than the thieves and contacted the AG and was told to put a fraud alert on my credit report.
Tell your mom once she gets everything straightened out that she is eligible to have an extended fraud alert placed on her credit report.

I hope it all works out for her.

Arizona is No. 1 for identity theft

February 20, 2009


The majority of complaints filed are by 18 to 29 year olds with only 8 percent filed by 60 year olds and older. You can take every other crime and combine it and it does not add up to the number of identity thefts. If you are the victim of identity theft, it costs on average $1,500, 607 hours plus $16,000 in lost wages to correct the theft, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center.

ID theft happened to my now ex wife as well----------here in Arizona. The perp was a Black woman in California according to the Secret Service. This occurred early 1990.

ID theft is ID theft: bad enough when an American commits it-------------many times more insulting when an illegal alien is behind it.

My mom had her credit cards being used by a thief.
The first thing she said was, "Oh God, please don't let it be an illegal alien."

And; sad to say, your mom's fears were understandable-----------I just hope to God that the thief was caught/punished.
