This couple fought $25,000 in fraudulent credit-card charges after falling prey to identity theft — then things got worse

Amy Wang and her husband spent hundreds of hours trying to straighten out their financial futures after falling prey to identity theft. Amy, a 50-year-old occupational therapist in Miami, says she and her husband, Michael Wang, started receiving credit-card denials and store credit cards in the mail in December of 2015. The shoppers had expensive taste, Amy said, opting for luxuries like diamond earrings, Gucci and Armani.
