Identity theft has been one of the forms of harassment used by Team Kimberlin. The TKPOTD from six years ago today dealt with one attempt to impersonate Mrs. Hoge.

Mrs. Hoge received a couple of interesting emails today. Someone is trying to use her identity to sign up for a Disqus account in order to post comments at Breitbart Unmasked.Mrs. Hoge also received this email related to Bill Schmalfeldt’s new SRN.Of course, she hasn’t tried to comment at BU, and she has no interest in SRN. (She prefers to listen to WYPR out of Baltimore for NPR talk and jazz and WETA-FM from Washington for classical music.)
I can understand why a member of Team Kimberlin would rather have someone else’s identity instead of his own. OTOH, I am not amused by someone trying to steal my wife’s identity.

I was not amused. Mrs. Hoge was not amused. However, the statute of limitations has run, so this is one less anvil that might drop. There are others still pending.
