Identity Theft and DSW.

Let me tell you how this happened to a relative of mine. Basically a purchase was made at the store "DSW" using a check. Information was stolen and we were notified almost a year later. Over 1.4 million people were affected. Getting this issue resolved was a big pain the ass..changing information at the bank, call credit card companies, get a credit check every few months to see if anything strange was located on it, and go to the police who really seem to care. Then going to the dreaded DMV and get a new license! NOOO!

But DSW still continues to be in business. I guess we can call this new wave crime.

The craziest was when my friend had a credit card approved for his dog.
