Ruining my credit was easy, thief says

Last week I met the crook who stole my identity and turned my life inside out.

"I'm sorry for everything I've done to you," he said.

Shad Fish, a 35-year-old former hardwood floor contractor will be nearly 40 by the time he gets out of federal prison for charging hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise using stolen identities.

Using my identity, he charged more than $40,000 in just a few days: suits, computers, an all-terrain vehicle, lawn equipment, stereo equipment, you name it. It took more than a year and untold hours of exasperation to clear up my credit. Worldandnation: Ruining my credit was easy, thief says
