The idea is to have a firm where you pay a monthly fee, and someone basically "steals" your identity to build up your credit.

       You pay to have your identity stolen? If you pay extra, will they burgle you, too?

       It's stolen by a credit improvement expert.

       What does this expert do with it? And who handles your overdue bills while he or she is doing it?   

       Doesn't this end up being a re-invention of debt-consolidation services, which already exist?

       //credit improvement expert// A morally tickled person, whom gets way more money than they can earn, transfers that excess back to where it came from. Of course with a fee.

       [+] okay, that's hilarious. Sadly, it's actually a pretty solid business plan. (the "steals" bit isn't necessary - they can just send clients papers to sign and return)

       Just curious, but how on [insert planet of your choice] did you get to that question?

       <old joke> "Someone stole the daughter's credit card last week." "Did you report it?" "Nah, they're spending less than she does."<\oj>
