Someone recently stole my identity and all my information and took out a bunch of online payday loans in my name. My bank contacted me due to an overwhelming number of ACH debits to my account causing my account to be overdrawn. I have since closed my account, filed a dispute with the bank and filed a police report for theft of identity. Some of these places have contacted me at work. Most were decent and gave me a fax number so that I could fax a letter and copy of my police report to them but one was rude and nasty and threatened to garnish my wages. I am not sure what else I should do. Any help would be greatly appreciated...I am in Kentucky.

(800) 223-2579.. that is a number that may be able to help you. I had to call for my state on advice about a similar situation that I am in.
