Woman accuses mother of stealing her identity

  • Follow Crime & courts

An 18-year-old Waynesboro woman is seeking to press charges against her mother for identity fraud, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The woman told police that at some point in 2010, her mother obtained a telephone line in Augusta using the identity of her then 16-year-old daughter.

The woman became aware of the fraudulent situation during a recent check of her credit score and told police Thursday that she wished to prosecute her 38-year-old mother.

I agree, my brother and

I agree, my brother and sister-in-law did the same thing to all three of their kids when they were young; got credit cards, etc. using their Social Security numbers........ruined their credit before they were even old enough to get a job. The way we found out, was our oldest daughter is named after her aunt, and we started getting collection notices from University Hospital in our daughter's name for surgery she had and she was only 10 at the time. We like to have never got that mess straightened out !
