Man accused of identity theft for allegedly using 7-year-old's name
CARPENTERSVILLE, Ill. -- Police in a Chicago suburb say the Internal Revenue Service has told a 7-year-old boy he owes back taxes on $60,000 because someone else has been using the youngster's identity to collect wages and unemployment benefits.
Officers in suburban Carpentersville said Friday the second-grader's identity has been in use by someone else since 2001.
Detectives have filed a felony identity theft charge against 29-year-old Cirilo Centeno of Streamwood, Ill.
They accuse Centeno of using the boy's personal information to collect more than $60,000 in pay and services while working three jobs. They say he also used the boy's ID to buy a truck, pay bills and even collect unemployment benefits.
