I talked to a federal prosecutor about a person using fake social security numbers with daughter's identity to get utility hookups,credit cards, and online merchandise as well as commit fraud. He said committing identity theft using fake social security numbers is not egregious enough for federal prosecution. Ruining other people's credit using fake social security numbers is a federal crime. Congress persons from South Dakota say just because someone commits federal crimes that are reported does not mean they will be prosecuted even if it cost your 1000s of dollars. Laws are only there to scare honest people as shown at southdakotgovinfo?

People commit crimes that are reported to federal prosecutors that are too lazy to prosecute. You pay for the merchants that lose money do to fraud which they could recover if the federal prosecutor prosecuted.
