Fast and loose – Rolling the dice with identity thief

Fast and loose – Rolling the dice with identity thief
Profile photo of asked 10 months ago

A CRA has a fictious name (my actual name but with a number inserted between my first and last name) on my file. I disputed it and they responded by requiring I fax/mail them my Driver’s License. As a proactive step to protect my identity, I requested faxing them a copy with a few random numbers redacted, in the event the fax was intercepted or highjacked. I explained my concerns and that neither faxing or USPS is secure. They declined and dismissed my concern.  As I see it, my options are (1) Roll the dice and send them my identity or (2) leave the fictious name on my report. Does anyone have any other options to suggest?
