So last night I got an email from someone working with or for the "Serial Huntress." Not quite sure what that means, but she told me that my name had come up in her investigation of a serial killer. Apparently, he had killed the man they believe had stolen my identity. Kinda creepy that they found him through me.

Where do I go from here?

So I just got off the phone with my PI (actually former PI now that I can’t pay him anymore). He said Messua Auto went out of business, and since I can’t pay him, he’s not going to pursue the lead for
me. At this point, I really don’t know what to do. I’m screwed I guess, it is what it is. Honestly, this blog is getting too depressing to write anymore. Don’t be surprised if this is my last post.

Turning point?

FINALLY! Some good luck has come my way! Well kind of. We’ll see how it plays out. So apparently my PI had been tracking the recent transactions on the cards that were being used in my name. He found out that someone had used my name while trying to purchase a car at some used lot in Seattle. I guess since I had communicated to the credit card company that the card wasn’t mine; they finally wised up and
flagged it so the guy (apparently it was a guy) couldn’t use it.

The place was called Messua Auto. This is big, kind of a breakthrough actually because now I can pinpoint a physical location where the thief has recently been. My PI has been trying to call them, so have I, but they’re not answering. Not sure what their deal is. Wish people would just do their
jobs for a change and pick up the damn phone. Either way, I’m keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

Staying Above Water

Ok, so it’s official. My Identity was definitely stolen. Even the credit card companies are starting to come
around to that conclusion. Not that they have stopped bothering me or are helping me find the guy, but at least they’re not threatening legal actions for the moment.

Anyway, I don’t even want to think about what the last 3 months have done to my credit score. I’ll get to that when this is all overSassuming this ordeal ever ends.

I did decide to hire a private detective. I’ll admit, I had to crawl back to my parents and ask for a loan to do this, but I think it was my only option. It’s not like I can just track the thief down myself, obviously it’s not my area of expertise.

This was kind of a big investment, and thanks to the identity thief, I don’t have very deep pockets at the moment, but I have to put an end to this at some point. Fingers crossed.

Staying above water,

More Bad News

Finally a new development. I had been getting a lot of harassing phone calls from this less than cordial gambling site (They claimed that I owed them $20,000). So anyway, the bright side of this is that now I know how these credit cards – in my name – are being used (or at least one of the places). I also consulted a lawyer. He advised me not to speak with that company, and to focus on the credit card companies. Unfortunately that’s not getting me very far. I can’t even get past the damn security questions, because I didn’t make the damn account! The whole system is so ass backwards, like it was designed to help the thief! I AM THE VICTIM HERE! Honestly, I just don’t get it.

Keeping my head up though

My New Blog

My name is Boris Gouza and I’m using this forum as a place to vent my frustrations. I’ve recently learned that I’ve become a victim of identity theft. It’s one of those things that you never really think about until you start getting random phone calls harassing you about charges you never even made.

So anyway, I had the fortune of learning about this from a cold, uncaring credit card debt collector who told me that I owed the good people of his company (who will remain nameless) $8,000. Of course this came as a shock since I didn’t even have a card from the company he was referring to. Then,
a few days later I got a call from yet another credit card company with a similar claim. Only this time I owed them $12,000. I replied in similar a fashion and started to wonder what the hell was going on. After a few more harassing phone calls, I realized what had happened – someone had stolen my

Honestly, I’m not even sure how it happened. I guess there are multiple ways that these guys can get your info. I did file a report with the police, and they’re looking into it, but who knows how that’ll turn out. However, in the meanwhile I’ve been getting 10-12 calls a day from creditors demanding
payment. It’s really frustrating; especially since none of them believe me when I tell them what really happened.

Anyway, the point is that whoever stole my identity really screwed me over, so I’m doing whatever it takes to get it back. I’ll write again when I know something.
