Identity Theft Nightmares – Have You Been There? [POLL]

Recently, a Leonia man was given a rather light sentence for taking part in an elaborate identity theft scheme.

According to NJ.com,

Myung-Kyun Ko will not be going to federal prison, despite having admitted to taking part in an elaborate identity theft scheme.

Instead, the 52-year-old Leonia man was sentenced to three years’ probation and six months home confinement today, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s office announced.

In April 2008, prosecutors say Ko obtained a fraudulent Social Security card using another person’s name. They say Ko then traveled from New Jersey to Illinois and obtained another identification card in that same name, which he used to obtain credit cards.

Does this light sentence make you angry? Especially if you’ve been a victim, I can’t see you being happy with someone like this getting off so easy.



If you have been a victim of identity theft, we’d love to hear your story in the comment section below.
