a few months ago i received a letter in the mail asking me to pony up money for a hit and run that i was never involved in. the accident, which apparently wasnt criminal because noone arrested me, occurred in another state than the one i live in, and which i have visited since 2005
i ignored these letters because i thought it was a scam- why didnt my insurance or the police contact me? why geico insurance? with each letter, more personal information about me was revealed. the last letter i received shows my license number, etc etc.
the problem is, i have NOTHING to prove that i was in my home state on that day, and i made no transactions for afew days before and after the alleged incident. reason being i had traveled to visit my mother and returned back to my state in time for a holiday –so i had no school or work to vouch for me, only my live-in boyfriend and mother.
i dont know who has gotten this personal information about me and how, but im feeling very uenasy about the whole thing. and im terrified. ive already consulted with a lawyer and my insurance company who are taking the case on.
what are my chances of losing even though i am innocent. is this considered identity theft? pelase help, freaking out
i meant to say i have not visited the state where the alleged accident took place since 2005
the “hit and run” wasnt of a person..it was i hit someone else’s car and fled the scene, or so im led to believe because i wasnt there!
