ID theft victims recover as Wisconsin DOT upgrades driver license safeguards (video report)

Several dozen Dane County victims of identity theft involving their driver’s licenses continue to recover from the privacy invasion, as state officials boost safeguards with on-line orders for license duplicates.

Nine months ago, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation notified Verona’s David Jameson someone had fraudulently ordered a duplicate of his driver’s license.

“It’s so invasive because it affects everything you do,” Jameson tells 27 News.

“We received some credit cards, we received the license,” a Verona woman tells 27 News. She asked her identity to be kept private in light of her victimization last year. “That’s when we thought, ‘We didn’t apply for these.'”
