It’s happened to me — a woman stole my identity. It’s devastating. There are things you can do, but in the grand scheme of things, you are had. You are at the mercy of thieves.
Johnson County victim’s advocate Rita Sims helped a lot. She never rushed me and heard my story with helpfulness and kindness. I was under hospice care when my checks were stolen.
The whole ordeal is about trust. You never look at anyone the same again. They take more than money — they take away your faith in humanity.
