Even fictional characters from TV Land aren't safe from identity thieves here in the real world.

In chat rooms dedicated to selling the personal information of people to potential credit card fraudsters, someone named "Supra" was offering info on Herman Munster - including his home address (as we all know, 1313 Mockingbird Lane).

Herman's birth date was listed as August 15, 1964, which may have been chosen because it was close to the airdate for the show on which he first appeared, 'The Munsters'. (The show premiered September 24, 1964.

But in "actuality", Herman (who is a member of the TV Crossover Hall of Fame under the general category of "Frankenstein's Monsters) was assembled from parts stored at Heidelburg School of Medicine in 1814.

I suppose pretty soon they'll be offering up Fred Flintstone's info, like the fact that he lived on Gravelpit Terrace in Bedrock.....
