Those of us in Alabama sometimes feel removed from terrorism but this reminds us of a sobering fact:
“Some folks may not think ID theft is a major crime until they remember that seven out of the nine hijacker terrorists on September 11 used illegal drivers licenses obtained by identity fraud to get on those planes,” Thompson said.
Read the rest of this article which contains good news about a number of arrests of people who tried to commit Identity Theft by obtaining driver’s licenses belonging to others in the Montgomery, Alabama area. Congratulations to Reba Thompson for doing such a good job fighting Identity Theft. This is needed in Montgomery as the article informs us that
Montgomery had more reported identity thefts last year than any other Alabama city.
Thanks to Kenneth Mullinax of the Montgomery Advertiser for this fine article.
