Taking From the Prosecutor - Not a Good Idea

I shred. In my son's lingo, that might mean that I was a snowboarder, but I'm not. I shred my personal information instead of throwing it into the trash.

Unfortunately, a Houston prosecutor apparently didn't. His identity got stolen. A woman with a history of fraud got the bank account number of Houston's chief prosecutor, and is now accused of writing hot checks.

Whoops. Picked the wrong guy.

Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal (second one down) has been busy straightening things out. It got so bad he had to withdraw money from one of his children's accounts.

30-year old Sharon Durbin was indicted this week on a felony charge of using a fake check. Rosenthal recused himself from the case and state District Judge Carol Davies appointed a special prosecutor. Actually, she passed 21 fake checks totaling more than $9,000 to purchase computers, groceries and gift certificates at a Petsmart store.

Watch yourself out there.
