my mother in laws exhusband stole my husbands identity and we didn’t find out till he was 18. We cleared that up with social security and the IRS. He’s had things mailed to us throughout the years like his trust fund through his work using my husbands name, mail with his actual name and he’s constantly trying to get in contact with family and friends through making fake fb profiles. We have the same last name due to him forcing my mother in law to put him as the father on my husbands birth certificate. I’m tired of doing this, I’m honestly scared he may show up at our house. From what my mil has told us he’s dangerous and unstable. This guy won’t leave us alone! There’s nothing that shows him being a danger to us though so how do I proceed? My husbands in the military but they say they can’t do anything. This guy is still somehow using my husbands information and our address.
I would file a police report if you have not done so already and send a certified letter with the police report to any institution where he's opened an account. You might also want to ask the police if you could get a restraining order against this person.
last, I would use the search tool here on Avvo and talk to a local identity theft attorney. There's just no substitution for talking to a real person.
