I had someone who bought a house in my name using a fake Alberta's DL, and a fake SIN card with a fake middle name. She charged over $350,000 in my name. Didn't find out about it till the bank came a callin' 3 months later. This happened in Apr/04 and was the biggest ID theft case our local police had ever seen at that time. It took me 6 months to clear my name, and at one point had police in 5 jurisdictions fighting over a piece of the case. Despite all my precautions I had my MC skimmed at the local Michael's Craft Store in Jan. I had to lock everything down again, and will keep fraud alerts permanently with Equifax and Transunion. The best advice is if you suspect any suspicious activity to contact the police, followed by the credit bureaus, then the rest of your personal info. I even keep my CC's in lead sleeves and still got nailed, so you can't be too careful out there. I just wanted to add that the faster you lock all your personal info down, call the police, the less damage they can do, especially with the fraud alerts up at the credit bureaus. It's really important to do this as soon as you suspect anything, in order to minimize the damage done to your personal info and credit rating.
