Investigation Discovers Thieves Accessing Arizona Driver Licenses For Years
For years, identity thieves exploited a state website to obtain other peoples' drivers licenses.
A joint investigation and Arizona’s Family and CBS 5 found organized crime rings used the IDs to open fraudulent bank accounts. One victim reported losing over $300,000.
The Department of Motor Vehicles confirms 164 people had their identities stolen, but the number could be much higher.
CBS 5 reporter Morgan Loew is part of the investigative team that broke this story and she joined The Show to talk about the report.
