This is the second time it has happened to me. My identity has been stolen twice. Only this time, this weekend, my wife and daughter were included. I don’t know what to say. Apparently, someone hacked in to our Turbo Tax accounts and filed on our behalf. A good amount of money was deposited to an unknown account. All information in the tax forms were falsified. Yet, I don’t understand how Turbo Tax, IRS, and whatever process it goes through didn’t catch on to it. It was so easy.
I feel betrayed. I’m not trusting, and never will, the system. You can hear it in their voice — they have been desensitized. It’s happened too many times. They’ve grown numb to others pain. No sense of empathy or sympathy. That’s alright. I understand.
All this shall pass as King Solomon once said.
I’m optimistic this year. Good things are coming my way. Sure, this past few weeks I escaped death (car crash) by an inch, spent days eating rice and beans, witnessed a rough/depressing budget, and more scary stuff. But it’s nothing to lose heart to when you’re convinced that this is your year. And let me tell you, this is my year. Being a sucker will be temporary.
