You now make the 3rd person that I've heard who had their identity stolen to pay a cell phone bill. I realize the bills can be high, but isn't it rather easy to trace?

Corrupt check-cashing place. You cash your paycheck, and for an additional fee you can use some of your cash to pay certain types of bills.

My guess is the person who owns the cell phone didn't realize that the check-cashing place was stealing his cash and using someone else's checking account to pay the bill.
