COURTS: USING ANOTHER'S SSN NOT A CRIME

As the lines between right and wrong continue to blur....



Courts: Using another's SSN not a crime - The Red Tape Chronicles - msnbc.com



The issue pits immigration rights advocates -- who say that undocumented workers are fundamentally different from identity criminals trying to steal credit -- against identity theft victim advocates, who think tougher imposter laws are needed.

ďAn immigrant who uses a false Social Security number to get a job doesnít intend to harm anyone, and it makes no sense to spend our tax dollars to imprison them for two years," Chuck Roth, litigation director at the National Immigrant Justice Center in Chicago, told the New York Times after the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling.

But the Identity Theft Resource Center argues that immigrants who use SSNs to get employment often end up putting the numbers to other uses: obtaining credit cards or car loans that can ultimately be blended in with the victimís credit, sometimes with disastrous results. The center took particular exception to the Colorado ruling.

I have a philosophy? Who knew. Ok, where's the beer?

In lockstep to the end of the world....

Re: COURTS: USING ANOTHER'S SSN NOT A CRIME

The laws themselves are retarded too, along with the ruling.

People have virtually zero protection against identity theft. There are ways to protect your credit score, but there's absolutely nothing out there to stop someone from using your SSN for employment or tax purposes. Hence the issue the article handed out about missing tax payments.

Quite frankly, the key problem comes from using SSN's as a main identifying tool for credit. SSN's were never meant to be used as they are today, and laws have never caught up.

Re: COURTS: USING ANOTHER'S SSN NOT A CRIME

A couple years ago a friend of mine went to the bank to make a deposit. She didn't know her account number off the top her head and gave them her SS# to look up the account, they found her account and an account with another name but same SS #.

Even after proving it was her SS# she could not get any information from the bank in regards to the account nor could she close it. Several months later they started contacting her because this particular account was over drawn and they were going to write it off and it would end up on Check System and the Credit Bureaus under her SS#.

She has paid hell getting it corrected on the credit bureaus but never could get it removed from Check System.

Re: COURTS: USING ANOTHER'S SSN NOT A CRIME

I find it humorous they "don't intend to harm anyone." Our government doesen't intend to raise taxes, but hey, they never seem to dissappoint. What a moronic statement. That guy should be nutted for making a statement like that. It would be like him to say, "I had no intentions of talking stupid, but I did it anyway."

Agreed.

Drunk drivers "don't intend to harm anyone" either, yet they still get prosecuted when they wreck and kill someone else.

Can anyone say "double standard"????????

i say it all the time with regards to alot of things the government does


on edit: can you sue the illegal immigrant for using your ssn? i know you might not get anything, but a point could at least be made.

edit again: or the gov for that matter for allowing this to happen? maybe under a wrongful prosecution suit or something

Re: COURTS: USING ANOTHER'S SSN NOT A CRIME

The U.S. Court system is nuts. It's bad enough when the U.S. military switched to SSAN instead of Service Numbers. According to the Social Security card statement the SSAN is not supposed to be used for identification purposes. Just my two cents.
