Reminds me of my partner at work for a project, we'll call him "Roy Rogers".

Of course, the insurance companies are such spineless worms that they would rather pay up than take a chance on being called racists or ant-eye-see-mites. After all, they can get their money back by raising the rates for honest people.
Somehow one of his credit card statements got snitched w/o him knowing.
Whoever did the snitching of statement paid the minimal amount to pay, requested a credit line increase and a change of address --- the address change ended up being a "mail drop" box in (either, I forget) Camden or Philly.
Right off the bat the new "Roy" hit the bank for two cash advances on the card - one for $5K and second for $8K.
Roy finally gets a call from the bank as the card is really getting lots of activity.
Ends up spending hours upon hours trying to straighten this out, finally asks the bank person, "Wasn't there any warning bells? Increase in credit line? Change of address? Cash advances when I've never did them before? Why wasn't ID asked for?"
"Well sir, we'd be accused of racism then."
"Are you going to go after this person?"
