I have had ID theft problems for the last 6-7 years. In any given month, I have at least 2-3 attempts using my personal information to try to open some sort of account online. I have Lifelock, so I have been able to keep up on most of it, but I just found out that someone opened a PayPal account using my name this past summer and owe a debt of $400.
I know they tell you that every time you have an instance of ID theft, that you should file a police report with your local police or in the jurisdiction where the ID theft took place. All of mine seems to be taking place online, and if I filed a police report every time I had an instance of attempted ID theft, I would be down at the police station filing reports 2-3 times a month. Is there a better way to do this in my situation? Would an FTC ID Theft Affidavit accomplish the same thing as far as "proof" that I have had many incidences of attempted ID theft?
if I were you, I would try to change my name and SSN
