Bust-ed Identity Thief Going to Jail

Check out this news and video clip from a San Diego news channel.

It’s really an interesting story and goes to show how being a victim of identity theft isn’t just about your credit card being misused…one of the thieves used a fake identity to get a $9K breast implant procedure done.

The two ladies in this story worked in the billing department of Sharp Healthcare and stole patients social security numbers and financial credit information.
