It's the nightmare story the identity protection companies would love to tell you in order to sell you on their services, but unlike most of their made up scenarios this one actually happened to a writer from Lifehacker.
His name is Eric Ravenscraft, and his identity was stolen by someone who was kind enough to file his taxes for him too, which is how he discovered the identity theft had taken place.
He received a letter from the IRS stating he'd filed his taxes twice, and all the strange emails and the fact that his Spotify account kept playing Enrique Iglesias suddenly made sense.
Eric told his tale of identity theft, and the ways he is now protecting himself against a repeat theft, so that others may learn from his mistakes and act before it's too late.
Enrique Iglesias as the soundtrack for identity theft, sounds legit to me!
