I forget if I told you guys, but on a very serious note, my ID was stolen and an attempt was made to get my IRS refund this year. If you've been watching the news, this became a major problem this year. IRS has some serious work to do.

I had to jump through major hoops to get my ID confirmed and taxes back on track. Filed letters. Talked to police, had interviews.

Just last month, I finally got the refund. I heard it could take 18 months, but it didn't.

I just got a letter, my social security is now flagged and will be watched closely. From now on I will have to provide the PIN number the government sends me.

These stolen info is getting out of hand. I see it only getting worse.

Good thread... We have to stay on top of this stuff.
