This article about an identy thief is pretty amazing. Perhaps 25% of its amazing-ness comes from the story itself: how on earth does a 15-year old kid get so good at navigating bureaucracy that he can social-engineer his way into taking over so many accounts? But 75% of the amazing-ness is: the reporter checked on the facts. There was some some investigation with this journalism. I was so surprised I had to go sit down for a while and just smile.
