Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone uses another person’s name, Social Security number, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, driver’s license number, account numbers, passwords or other personal identification information, without authority, and falsely poses as another person to commit fraud and gain access to the other person’s finances.

This also includes selling or transferring personal information to another person to obtain money or goods. Identity theft crime charges include:

  • Internet identity theft: Internet or computer purchases using another person’s credit card
  • Credit card theft: Applying for a credit card (access card) or making purchases
  • Counterfeit or altered credit cards, driver’s license, or official records (medical, marriage)
  • Forgery of signature on documents such as a check or debit card purchase
  • Publishing account numbers

If you have been arrested or accused of an identity theft crime, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience in identify theft cases for the best outcome of your case. A skilled defense attorney can develop a defense strategy early on in the case, and may be able to reduce or dismiss the charge before you even discuss settlement or go to trial.
