Storyline

Postal inspectors (Louis Gossett, Jr. and Jonathan Silverman) investigate a con man (Michael Madsen) who uses the identities of others to falsify credit card purchases. Stealing credit card offers from mail boxes, he obtains cards in others' names, makes many purchases until the card is maxed out, but is always careful to pay minimum balances. According to the story, it is possible for individuals such as this to run many credit cards at a time without being caught. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Postal inspectors investigate identity theft
20 November 2006 | by david_kravitzSee all my reviews

This is way above the general standard of TV movies. Beautifully acted by the two likable leads as well as terrific baddie who reminds me of an actor from years ago who always played baddies but I cannot remember his name (Barry something?). An unusual plot, identity theft and a very credible storyline apparently based on truth, albeit probably a composite, it moves at a cracking pace grabs you by the throat from the very beginning and does not let go until the last frame. Throw in the odd bit of humor and crisp direction and cinematography and you have a movie that could easily have been shown in movie theaters. My only criticism is that these guys are postal inspectors and you just have to wonder where all the real policemen were. Just sit back in your armchair and enjoy.
