    I am with you 100% on being able to change our SSN's. Once it is out there, that's it, and the damage can continue to be done.

    Unfortuantely for the sister, she will now have to spend tons of money and years to get this off her credit record. It's not that easy, in fact it is very, very hard. I know. Been there and done that. Once someone steals your identity, it is a nightmare to clean up. That is something else that should not be.

    so now that this is KNOWN, will his sister's credit be wiped clean and restored to reflect only the debt she herself has accumulated? or does she get to look forward to years of trying to get that stuff straightened out? i hear so many horror stories about identity theft and the lasting pain in the rump it can be, even after discovery of the facts.

    that is why I wish we could change social security numbers like phone numbers. my sister went to prison for stealing my mothers bank card. she knows my social because there is only two number difference between hers and mine.
