Consumer Complaint: I’ve sent multiple letters to this agency about this not being my account. After being advised by identitytheft.gov, I’ve completed and sent a fraud affidavit via certified mail. I can see they received it, but nothing has changed. See supporting documents. Even the USPS tracking.My official complaint is against FCO. My information was used to obtain an apartment, cell phone, and an auto loan with my ex-partner. I am a victim of identity theft and have put this off for too long. I’ve completed the proper steps, 1. notify creditors 2. police report 3. informed the state of Texas. The individual I’ve suspected for this theft is now deceased, and the police department said to contact the federal trade commission to seek relief.
