Mount Pleasant, MI asked in Consumer Law and Identity Theft for Michigan

Q: I need a lawyer that deals with identity theft issues. Anyone know of someone in Michigan?

Someone created a paypal account using my SSN. Paypal never alerted me to this. They are rude and are still allowing this person to perform transactions under me even after me telling them it is not me. They never investigated this. Been going on since last Oct. 2018

Has this affected your credit? Are you getting collection letter or responsible for any debt? My answer is No to these questions. I did get a letter from the IRS saying I owe them money but they cleared it yesterday.

This person is selling on Ebay under my personal information. I have talked to Paypal and Ebay multiple times and they are still letting this person perform transactions under my personal information. I am having a difficult time trying to find someone who can help.
