Identity theft is a type of fraud where an individual assumes someone else’s identity in order to gain access to the victim’s financial resources or obtain credit in the victim’s name. This access is often achieved by obtaining the victim’s important personal information such as:
- Social security number
- Credit card number
- Bank account information
- Personal passwords to financial accounts
Identity theft is considered a white collar crime and carries serious criminal penalties if you are convicted. As a result, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights. The stakes are too high to trust your defense to a mediocre attorney.
