The chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, who by the way happened to be nominated rececently to continue the implosion of America's banks, was the victim of identity theft.
Evidently, a group contracted thieves to obtain checkbooks and credit cards from innocent people. His wife had her purse stolen, which is how his family became a victim.

I simply want to highlight what Chairman Ben Bernanke said to a reporter of Newsweek about this: "Our family was but one of 500 separate instances traced to one crime ring," he said. "I am grateful for the law enforcement officers who patiently and diligently work to solve and prevent these financial crimes."
God bless Ben Bernanke, but here is my problem with his take. He said "I am grateful for the law enforcement ... work to solve and prevent these financial crimes."
What about the millions of families who are being robbed by the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve is the supervisor (and partial regulator) of banks. What about the financial crimes being committed under his watch as chairman? Truly, he should be spending more time with Bob Mueller (Robert Mueller is Director of FBI) and Eric Holder (US AG) to prosecute the officers of Citi, Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, BankUnited, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, IndyMac, National City, Wachovia, WaMu, Countrywide, Fannie, Freddie, TBW, UBS, AIG, and on and on and on.
What about the crime ring aided by the Federal Reserve?
