(WMC-TV) - A Memphis woman is struggling to piece her life back together, after a four-year identity theft horror.
The problems all began when Tamika Holmes' purse was stolen.
"There was a point where I didn't want to leave out of my house," she said. "It's a nightmare."
The thieves went on a spree across four Mississippi counties. She says thieves used her identity in Memphis and four Mississippi cities: Bolivar, Indianola, Tunica and Tupelo.
"They paid a couple of cell phone bills with my credit card. They tried to get cable service in my name, cell phones in my name," she said.
Holmes made a police report and flagged her credit and Social Security cards, but that was not enough. Her image was put on a CrimeStoppers billboard and she was arrested. She was in jail there nine days before the courts sorted it out.
Now, she's trying to get her record expunged.
Holmes' attorney, Daniel Lofton, says even with the fraud alert, a slew of government and commercial agencies let Holmes down.
"All of her charges have been dismissed," said Lofton.
Her only saving grace was she was at work when the thefts took place, but the collateral damage continues.
"I haven't been able to find a job," said Holmes.
Charges are still showing hits on the National Crime Information Center database.
"There's no one to add it all up and say this person was a victim. Let's wipe her slate clean," said Lofton.
Indianola settled out of court. In another pending case, a judge ordered All American Check Cashing to pay Holmes $143,000 for cashing her check despite the fraud alert.
Tonight, in Action News 5 at 5 p.m., Holmes shares her story and has a warning for all who will listen.
