Livelifelargeyou probs got your identiy stolen, good, luck
Yeah, that's very unlikely. I sent paypal an email to make sure, but I've been in the states only for a few months, I don't have revenues, no credit card whatsoever (don't even think I could get one), no credit history, and I never gave my social security number to anyone. And I mean anyone, I didn't even need one to open a bank account, that shit is still in its sealed enveloped. I didn't misplace any ID either.
Plus no suspicious activity on my bank account, I exclusively use secure passwords, and never access data-sensitive websites other than on my home network, which is tightly monitored with logs and mac restrictions. So a possible thief would have to go great lengths to steal the identity of someone without any money.
It's still possible tough, but I think those guys usually go for the targets that are either financially interesting or at least not very cautious. I don't think the overly cautious broke kid is at the top of their list.
