Ok so i have been the victim of identity theft. It is REALLY bad they got ALL of my information. I have done everything to get it taken care of but, I am having a major problem because my bank put a hard hold on my account because they think that I did something wrong even though i have shown proof that it was not my fault including a statement from the police showing that i filed a police report two weeks ago. I have to pay rent by tue. or my landlord will evict me and dd. I have told her the situation but she needs a letter from the bank and they bank won't give me one until the finish their investigation. I have done everything i can to get this taken care of. I have asked friends, family even appiled for a payday loan (and was denied because of the fraud it looks like i have terrible credit) I have sold everything of value that i own including my ring...what do i do? if i don't get $ by tue we won't have a place to live!

  • Huggs! The police report should be enough for the landlord know you are in a difficult situation. I would camp out at the banks presidents office until I got a letter explaining that you have been a victim of IT and that you are working to set up all new accounts. If your landlord is that much of a jerk, well moving may be a blessing. I hope you find someplace to live if this jerky landlord won't listen. Don't give up, keep calling and being at the bank until someone gets a brain in their head to help you. Keep us updated.

  • Well first off, your landlord can't just up and evict you for being a little behind on rent -- check with your local county courthouse about your tenant rights. They do have to give you notice - here it's 30 days.
    Also, Salvation Army sometimes will help with 1 month rent.
    good luck!

  • Like the previous person said, they can't just evict you. You have to be served a notice of eviction, respond to the notice, etc. I would go by the bank and ask them to at least write a statement that they are doing their own investigation and that they will write another letter if they clear you or not. Also, have you showed your landlord, the letter from the police?
