Well, that's what they thought. Nearly three years ago, I was a victim of identity theft. A man or a woman or kabal of con-people decided they would use my name in order to steal money from gun buyers online. Nothing was stolen from me and it didn't really effect me in any negative way, which meant it was kind of entertaining.

Today, I got a call from a postal inspector in Madison, WI, where it all went down. He told me they had "captured the target" and needed my information in case the prosecution wanted to use me as a witness. I was unsure I could trust him at first, so I asked for his name and phone number. After he gave me that, I gave him my info and said I'd be happy to help.

Moments later, I spoke to my mom and she said the same man had called our house saying he was an old friend of mine. "Odd," I thought. I did some research and it turned out he was indeed a postal inspector, but I was fairly nervous for a few minutes.

I'm kind of excited that this is coming back to life three years later. I'm also impressed that they actually caught the guy this much later. Apparently he had been doing the same sort of thing to others.

If you'd like to read all about my adventures as they happened, follow this search for "gun running" on my site and it will pop up all of the entries. There are about eight, I think.
