U.S. Senator Victim Of Identity Thieves

Identity theft is so common now that it rarely makes the news, well...unless of course a U.S. senator is involved. eek!

It's a measure of the brazenness and ubiquity of identity theft that a U.S. Senator has become the latest victim of credit card fraud. Thieves stole the credit card numbers belonging to Senator Daniel Inouye (D) of Hawaii, embedded them on the magnetic strip of a fake credit card, and went on a $12,000 Walmart shopping spree.
