Identity theft is one of the largest crimes of our time. Honestly, if someone wants to steal my identity just tell me. You don’t need to steal it. You can have it. If you put it on eBay, I get half of the $.72 you get for it.

Apparently PGA Tour pros aren’t immune to identity theft. Allegedly, a crook in Texas stole Justin Leonard’s identity. He opened credit card accounts and even had a cell phone in Leonard’s name.

The crook who stole Leonard’s identity wasn’t too smart apparently. He used his phony identity in the post office near where Leonard lives, exposing himself to people who recognized that he wasn’t Justin.

Why not go for the big fish?

If you’re going to steal a PGA Tour pro’s identity, why not just go for Tiger Woods’?
Imagine the limits (or lack thereof) for the credit cards you could get with an income of $130,000,000+ per year!
