Dead Ringers: Grave Robbers Turn to ID Theft

Date: August 4, 2009

QUOTE: However, it may take days, weeks or months after a person dies for authorities to include a new death in their databases. Until then, criminals have free reign to open credit cards, get state identification cards and apply for a job using a dead person’s identity, says Jay Foley, the executive director of the Identity Theft Resource Center, a San Diego-based nonprofit organization. And although each organization keeps a record of deceased individuals, their databases don’t always overlap, Foley says.

I always find articles about robbers and their actions very interesting. Recently I did a piece about grave robbery as well on paper writing service. For some reason this topic attracts me very much.
