A while ago a person I know stole my identity, applied for a credit card and cable TV in my name, both amounting to thousands of dollars each. Neither were ever paid. This person lived in Hawaii, which is were these accounts originated and still stand. I live in New York and have never lived in Hawaii. As the bills were going to the Hawaii address, I only recently found out about them. I would think this is a matter of identity theft, forgery and fraud. What are the statutes of limitations to take action for these? How do I deal with them, living in a different state?
What are the possible/prpenalties this person may face?
