I went to ytmag.com and went to the farmall discussion page I post there as chad or chad from michigan and that is it. Well I am reading the post and I see top "valve angle farmall (h)" posted by Chad Penny
well that was very iritating since I am chad penny. so I went to the post was going to email the person on the slight chanve there name was chad penny. well guess what no email no contact info. why would someone post themself as another user on the board? should I be concerend about this?

I guess it would depend on if they wrote good or bad post.

I would contact the site administrator and let him/her deal with. If it is an imposter, they'll know what to do.

Just thought it was odd and possibly it is another chad penny. I doubt it but we shall see if it is ligit the person will set me straight.
the post was not bad but just weird.

I went and looked at that thread. I does seem a little odd. I would just wait and see if whoever it is replies to your post. Worst thing that could happen is that he also has your SS#.

Looks to me like it's the Chad Penny who can't spell or has a slight studder.

your right I can not spell very good and part of it is I type bad also.
since this is not a english class and I get my point across I don't think it really matters.

that would really suck if I lost my ss number and that person was using holy crap thanks for that thought! now I will be paranoid. well not really but that stuff does happen.

I would sure look into it. We just got done with a round of identity fraud. Somebody got my wife's ss#, opened an account with Verison Wireless and proceeded to run up a $2800 bill plus other things. It took me at least three months to get everything straight and about a $100.00 out of my own pocket, the cost of sending certified letters to the cerdit agencys and the outfits that this *&^%$$$# person purchased goods from on phoney credit cards in my wifes name. I can't believe you can get credit based just on a ss# and my wife's name that they didn't even spell correctly.

A good place to get your identity stolen is when you are a patient in a hospital. Your social security number is on EVERYTHING. I had been home about 2 months from a 1 1/2 month hospital stay when I got a call from Sears fraud department wanting to know if I had gotten a Sears card and bought quite a bit of furniture with it on a certain date. I had been in the hospital at the time and when I informed them of that they told me not to worry, there had been a bit of problem with that happening to hospital patients and they would take care of it. I never heard any more about it from Sears, but there was an article on the St. Louis news about 2 weeks later that some hospital employees had been arrested for the same type actions. I requested a credit check from the different companies, and had them put an attempted fraud flag on my account, and have had no more problem.
