They say lightning doesn't strike the same place twice, but one woman has found herself a victim of identity theft, not once, but twice.
71-year-old Ella Duncan has been filing her tax returns for over half a century.
"Never ever... Never dreamed that something like this could happen to me. Never," Duncan said.
She doesn't use online banking or ATM machines and shreds all documents with personal information.
For the past 2 years, someone used her Social Security number to file fraudulent tax returns.
In March, Duncan got a letter from the IRS stating they received her tax return.
The problem was, she hadn't even filed yet.
According to the IRS website, a typical case of identity fraud can take 180 days to resolve, before they can send that money.
In 2011, it was the first time someone fraudulently filed a tax return on Duncan's behalf.
