He Who Steals from Me My Identity Steals
In the late afternoon hours of August 8, 2014, exactly one year to the day, my wife asked me the following question: “Do you have your birth certificate here?” “Sure, if it is not here, then it is in the safe deposit box,” I responded. Since we had just met with Social Security staff to sign up for Medicare and Social Security benefits, I was certain that my birth and naturalization certificates were still at home.
“But why do you ask?”
