I am keeping a running list of Identity Theft aka Stolen Identity Cases by Year.
1994: The case of Paul Gruber and Darryl Kuehl
1998: The case of Gary Wayne Thomas and George Kalomeris. This identity theft case ended in murder.
1999: Michelle Brown found out that a woman named Heddi Larae Ille had been using her social security number to get a driver's license, a condo, and a car in her name. It took about 7 years to bring her to justice. A movie was made about her case called Identity Theft The Michelle Brown Story in 2004.
