Was Your Name Stolen to Support Killing Net Neutrality?

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has launched a new tool for users interested in knowing whether their identity was stolen and used to fraudulently support the FCC's attack on popular net neutrality rules. It also lets you contribute your findings to the AG's ongoing investigation into identity theft.

Schneiderman's office had previously sent a letter to FCC boss Ajit Pai, complaining that the agency ignored more than half a dozen requests for assistance over the last six months in investigating the rampant fraud occurring on the agency website. The FCC could provide details on who utilized the agency's APIs to file such bogus support en masse but has so far turned a cold shoulder to said fraud.
