I am 35 year old and i just found out my mother have been secretly using my settlement money since I was 7 year old. This settlement money was rewarded to me when I was a minor due to medical malpractice. My mother told me that I need to stay quiet about it and you still under guardianship. So I... View More
If you had a medical malpractice case as a minor which settled, the proceeds would likely have been deposited in a bank account which would have been jointly held in trust by your guardian (your mother) and an officer of the bank. Significantly, any such monies should have been off-limits to your...View More

Via txt messages, he assumed the identity of a fictitious member of my office staff and contacted the patient to schedule an appt with myself (referring to me and... View More
The perpetrator arguably committed a crime by using your identity to defraud a patient. HIPAA prohibits the disclosure of individually identifiable medical information. One exception to the prohibition, however, is for law enforcement purposes, specifically when necessary to inform law...View More
She has been committing identity fraud/theft against me since at least 2021. Various loans, credit cards, and accounts have been created using my name, date of birth, and SSN. I was not aware of this problem or consented to these accounts. I only found out after moving out and tried to apply for an... View More
The lenders are not going to let you off, and her off. Someone has to pay. Thus, if you are submitting fraud affidavits, the lenders will definitely give it to law enforcement as it is Federal bank fraud. You do not choose who gets prosecuted. The DA chooses.

This format here is basically question and answer. If you're seeking an attorney, you could search online for attorneys in the Chicago...View More

If I was in your situation, I would gather all of the information, hire a civil attorney, and sue her and the imposter for the amount of money stolen, as well as the cost for litigation. After filing the suit, I would also subpoena the place for footage of the transaction. Hopefully it still...View More
You posted this under identity theft. That is a big possibility. Without seeing the full report I cannot tell. Look and see if you recognize all of the debts. If not, put a fraud alert on the report, and contact the erroneous entries.

The birth certificate (issued in New York City) has questionable... View More
This would be best handled by a civil litigation attorney as it sounds like it involves several name changes or may require one now. You may be able to get free help from legal aid clinics but if not you can always reach out to attorneys directly and ask if they would help for free. Best wishes!
An attorney who deals with healthcare law and HIPAA could be a starting point, and depending on more information, possibly a medical malpractice attorney or civil litigation attorney, based on the issues that emerge in making a more detailed assessment. You could use the tab above (Find-a-Lawyer)...View More

Your post may have been overlooked in this category for the past four weeks. While it may have originally stemmed from an identity theft issue, at this point, the best guidance would probably come from a collections defense attorney. There is a section here (Collections). You could repost, and if...View More

I gave them the emails and address of where I gotten them and they froze my account. When I login into my account I had... View More
If you never got the money and the checks were declined, the bank must suspect you for fraud. There is something not right but if the whole matter is over $110 there is little a lawyer can do. When the courts reopen, make a small claims suit.
I have just received a letter from a organization that mailed my personal and sensitive information to the wrong address. They sent me a letter apologizing for it and offering free credit monitoring for up to a year. Would it be a good idea to file a lawsuit? Thank you.
It could depend on what kind of damages you incurred and whether you would want to go through with the expense and time of a lawsuit. There are attorneys who deal with identity theft/privacy type issues. If you wanted to look into the matter in greater detail, you could contact one of them. Good...View More
