If you are being investigated for or have been charged with identity theft, speak to an attorney before making any statements to investigators or prosecutors. Accusations involving a single act of theft or a large-scale operation require legal counsel experienced in this complex area of criminal defense.
Convictions carry serious, life-changing consequences that could involve prison sentences, fines and financial restitution to the victims of the alleged criminal acts.
Comprehensive Experience In Complex Identity Theft Criminal Cases
From opening another person’s mail to hacking into a computer, identity theft can take many forms. The federal crime involves intent to commit fraud by obtaining, possessing or using another person’s identifying information from various sources, including:
- Social Security or employer taxpayer identification numbers
- Driver’s licenses, state ID cards or passport numbers
- Checking and savings account numbers
- Credit card and debit card numbers
- Personal identification numbers (PINs)
- Electronic identification numbers
- Digital signatures
With the illegally obtained information, financial transactions and purchases are done in the name of the victim.
