A most common way of identity thieves to steal your money is stealing your SSN by getting your paystub and file a fake income tax return on your behalf using your SSN and made it with their address or the bank account they made on your name.

In the business world workers care about the clients and the company, they will check carefully the identity of the people that come close to buy something or get any service, the contrary is with government employees and system, they get a tax file with the name and SSN and process it just as it is. Legally they are right; it is not their responsibility, they do their job and do not see one foot beyond their noses.
