Hello from earth

As of right now, I owe just over $60,000 in debts towards multiple places. Please, please, please don’t trust the wrong people. When it comes to yourself and your future, don’t give anyone access to your information or your finances. I might sound crazy in saying that, but I did not use $60,000 worth of anything.

I’m not too sure how I’m going to start over with this continually looming over my head. It doesn’t matter how many payments, nothing seems to fix this.

I have two social insurance numbers. How does one get two social insurance numbers? I DON’T FUCKING KNOW. How do I get to the bottom of this? I DON’T FUCKING KNOW. Who did this? If I were to guess, I’d suggest it’s the same person who is now the reason why I am so indebted to the whole fucking planet. The second profile has their address on it… an address I never lived at.

Do not put your trust in someone who doesn’t deserve it.

I just don’t know what to do about this right now. It feels like it’s never going to end.

  1. t’s horrible that someone can do that. I just don’t see how you can be responsible for the second number if you didn’t apply for it. Obviously that person had access to your info but if you never lived there? And did they forge your signature? There must be someone who deals with that sort of fraud and yes, I know, they cost money. It sounds nightmarish and yet to many that amount of money would be a sneeze. The world is so unbalanced. I am the kind of person who always ends up in the hole, so clearly I know nothing but I am outraged on your behalf, All I know is you can pay what you haven’t got. I once declared bankruptcy for a relative who got in a bind. It sorted the problem and it doesn’t take forever to get your credit back.

    1. Considering social insurance numbers are given to people based on birth records, I don’t know how it’s possible to have two, being only one human being. I don’t know how the fuck to get to the bottom of this, other than to leave it to my lawyer, and hope that the legal system gets there eventually. It’s disappointing and hard. So hard to wait.

    1. Thank you. If I file for bankruptcy while this is actively making its way through courts, then my court cases would become null and void. So unfortunately, that’s not an option at this point as I need a court to prove I didn’t cause this.

  2. I totally feel you on this. It took me so many years to wipe out my debts, some of which were from others taking advantage of me (others who were much older and should know better than to prey on younger individuals). it’s made me a cautious, less giving person, but I’m still better for it at the end of the day. Just take things one step at a time in finding out how to fix any wrongdoing with your new attached to it in error. Those types of things can be so frustrating, especially if you try to figure it out all at once.

  3. I truly feel for you dear Vee. I am really, truly sorry you have to go through this. It is shameful how people take advantage of others like this. Our countries are different so I regretfully cannot provide information that might be “practical” for you, but I continue to send my support and positive thoughts your way.

  4. Hey Vee,

    Although I haven’t been in the same situation I would just say to keep going one day at a time, and try not to think about dealing with the debt until it’s finalised at some number. Keep doing what you have to do for now. And then when it’s time you can start to collect ideas for how to deal with it. Such as: possibly there are charities which help people who’ve been victims of identity fraud; possible legal proceedings against the person if you have a strong case in terms of evidence etc.; the bankruptcy thing (although I can’t imagine how frustrating it would be to suffer such consequences as a result of this dickhead); reach out to any community groups of people who’ve been through similar. There will be a way through this I can promise.

    When it’s time, keep talking with the family members who are supportive (not the ones who aren’t, of course!) and keep them in the loop so they can help with ideas too and so you don’t have to go through it alone.

    Man the second social security number stuff is so weird I agree! So maddening.

    1. Thank you. I do to. I have to hope that in time, the legal system will sort this all out for me. Even at a glacial pace, I’m hoping It gets there eventually.

  5. You need to take action about the second Social Security number, including informing the police and whichever govt department is responsible for issuing them of fraud and identity theft, otherwise you could be landed with additional bills and costs.

    I would also suggest keeping a paper-based notebook of your movements, addresses you’ve lived at and if possible, copies of one or two bills for each of these addresses, key dates (like being at court, lawyer offices, dentists, etc) to corroborate your movements.

    I know this puts the onus on you, but proving you’re a victim of ID theft is difficult.

    1. Thank you for the advice. The authorities are already aware. As is my lawyer. Neither have dealt with this type of situation before, so it’s become quite complicated.

  6. Hi Vee, sending you sooo much love. I had a friend in the past who made me sign a lot of documents when I was vulnerable and on a lot of drugs in hospital. With my signature and trust, she got a credit card in MY NAME and went to town with it, racking up $30,000 of debt. Then she skipped town and I had debtors ring me for things I knew nothing about…so I literally feel your pain. I’m so sorry this is happening to you. My advice is to stay true to yourself. Take one day at a time, one step at a time. Call the agency that gives out Social Security numbers to let them know you have TWO so they can help you. Keep a record of your debts and payments and little by little, chip away at them as much as you can without endangering yourself. I’m praying for you and hurting with you xx
