identity theft and bankruptcy
February 7th, 2008 by Questions
I was a victim of identity theft. I am still trying to get a lot of that sorted out, including a few items on my credit report that are not mine. Due to my own money issues, unrelated to the identity theft, I am considering bankruptcy. How do I deal with the accounts that were fraudulantly opened in my name? Can they be included in the bankruptcy, just to get rid of them, or do I have to deal with that separatly? It just seems like it would be easier to claim those debts, but they are not mine and I don`t know if including them in the bankruptcy will make it appear that they were indeed my debts.
