They should be able to be traced. If whatever entity (bank etc.) says they can't/won't do it raise hell with a manager or whatever until the problen is solved. Also try your local DA fraud unit.

your bank should cooperate. They should have a fraud investigative unit, assuming it's an FDIC insured bank. call the po po, tell them you want to press charges, and get them to issue a subpoena to the bank asking for the utility account info connected to the fraudulent payment. get your bank to push the issue if your local PD doesn't seem proactive. also getting the bank to do this will keep you a little more in the clear should the identity thief have your address, which I am guessing is the case. it might save you a late night problem in case they come looking for you if the cops arrest them.

Thanks for the info folks. My local pd has already said they're not going to do anything, so I will push the bank to investigate. I should have my money back by the end of the week but I want to nail this bastard.

Any extra info/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

If the loacls won't do anything go to the state boys. Or talk to the states attorney general's office.

Why won't they do anything? I'm sure there are ID theft statutes in your state. We prosecute the hell out of them. There has to be either a County or State agency that will take the case if your local agency won't.
