Identity theft is the illegal obtaining of personal, identifying information (name, address, Social Security, credit card numbers, etc.) for the sole purpose of committing fraud and gaining access to the other person’s finances. Falsely posing as another person is a criminal act and carries serious penalties.
The repercussions of a criminal conviction of identity theft can be severe which could affect the convicted adversely for many years. If you are charged with identity theft, contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Never make a statement to law enforcement until after you have spoken with an attorney about the facts of your case.
