Storyline

Every six minutes in America, someone's identity is stolen. When Michelle Brown walked into an office one day to fill out a simple rental form, then handed it to the receptionist, she never dreamed that her information would fall into the wrong hands. As Michelle keeps receiving hefty bills for services and merchandise she never purchased, it doesn't take her long to figure out that someone has stolen her identity, and is determined to take over her life, no matter the cost. But when a warrant is issued for the arrest of the imposter, the real Michelle is wrongly accused. With her life escalating out of control, Michelle must regain her own self to confront her nemesis, and appeal to the U.S. Senate for more concise identity theft laws. Written by Icedberry

The Michelle Brown Story
15 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like this movie very much. Anyone committing or having committed ID Theft should be made to watch this movie no less than 20hrs a day and not less than 2yrs every day. Maybe then people will understand what kind of damage they have caused and stop and think about it. I can personally related because two people in my extended family did this and they're getting off the easy way. No sympathy should be the punishment. Anyway I thought the movie was directed and performed with the excellence to make this seem so realistic and not twist the truth of what happened. I think everyone should watch this movie. It really gives you an idea of what can happened when you least expect it.
