<<Umm..why are you trying to file a complaint with the police?
>>

Because ID theft is a federal crime.

This person didn't physically steal my card and walk into a store. He called my credit card company, changed my address to his - somehow - by using my identifying information that not just anyone should be able to know.

This person is forging my name on packages he recieves.

This guy is pretending to be me when purchasing things and signing for things -- who knows if he isn't doing the same in other areas?

If you read my original post, I'm not concerned about the charges -- I won't be out those. I'm concerned that he has invaded my privacy; that he has criminally impersonated me, that he may have other information on me that he may sell or give to others. I'm concerned that he may impersonate me in a way that would do damage to my name.

What if he gets arrested for something else, and gives the police my name and SSN or DL# as his own??

I'm trying to contact the police because I'm trying to protect myself. That's what they're supposed to be there for. I don't think I'm getting ahead of myself at all.
