I am Benjaman Kyle, an unidentified amnesiac with no memories, and the country's only "invisible person" without a SSN. AMA.
PART TWO: The US Government Doesn't know who I am, and without a social security number, I can't get a job, find a place to live, or functionally exist in the eyes of the government.
My story and petition has received national attention, but Reddit has been the only source that has made a significant dent in the petition, which is the only real shot I've got at a normal life. Reddit, you're the best hope I have, please please sign it. http://wh.gov/I5Rn
I woke up beaten with no memories outside of a burger king in 2004. Any identification I had was stolen as well. The Amnesia was presumed to have been caused by an injury that knocked me unconscious. The United States government still doesn't have a clue as to who I am. Even after eight years, they still don't know, and I have not been given a number, nor been able to live a normal life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjaman_Kyle
The petition is for me to get a new SSN so the US government will recognize me as a person. http://wh.gov/I5Rn If half the people who upvoted the last AMA signed the petition, that would have been enough signatures. There's a short documentary that explains my predicament on www.findingbenjaman.com, orhttps://vimeo.com/34589969 After the documentary, I got a special state ID, and a job in a kitchen, where i still am to this day.
UPDATES FROM THE PREVIOUS: As to the Waffle House leads from the last AMA, we're in touch with someone who works at the corporate level at WH, and they're helping us look at employee records. The two Reddit users who posted about having thought they saw me still have not responded to our messages and emails. Thank you for all the missing people links, but unfortunately, none of them are me. We've looked into all of them.
To the websleuths page claiming that this is fake, or anyone who thinks this is a hoax, please read:http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/jul/10/man-with-no-memory-america (towards the bottom) andhttp://www.findingbenjaman.com/cynics-corner-3/ For proof, you can see that I did the last AMA last month. Thank you so much.
