Immigration Law : Post Notario Options

Posted by attorney C. Abbott

Additional resources provided by the author

When a person provides person information to a notaro, the rules of ethics such as confidentiality do not apply. Thus, the information could be used to make false documents. It is advisable to check with the Social Security Administration to make sure your information is not used to create duplicate SSNs. Unfortunately, this may only be discovered when the victim goes to apply for benefits and discovers that others were using their information to create new SSNs, claims to benefits, etc that have resulted in overpayments and even taxes owing to IRS.
If this happens, IRS, SSA, and other Federal Agencies have CID (Criminal Investigation Divisions) to investigate such events. The best option is then to report fraud to the different agencies and work with them to correct the problems. This will not only assist the victim but hopefully stop future bad actions.
Good luck. Colin
