ID Theft by Medical Billing Clerk

Is a background in law enforcement necessary to prevent being a victim of ID theft? It certainly helped Paul Vick, a former FBI agent and Wichita detective.

Vick manages finances for his father, a long-term care facility resident. When the bank notified Vick about possible fraudulent charges using his father's identity the son started investigating. Vick determined that a Tiandra Crawford, a medical billing clerk for a pharmacy services company, stole the father's credit card information.

Though not responsible for the bogus charges "This was not a victimless crime. The merchants in this time of economic uncertainty are taking a loss for people stealing from peoples' identities and also their credit card information."
