Bernanke Victimized by Identity Fraud Ring

Print comment Post Comments
Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke was one of hundreds of victims of an elaborate identity-fraud ring, according to Newsweek. "Last summer, just as he was dealing with the first rumblings of the financial crisis on Wall Street, Bernanke learned that a thief had swiped his wife's purse—including the couple's joint check book," Newsweek says. "Days later, someone started cashing checks on the Bernanke family bank account, the documents show."

Bizarre stuff. At the height of the debt crisis who would possibly want to be parading around town posing as Ben Bernanke?
