Identity Theft- How to Protect Yourself from Serious Criminal Charges

by Attorney Carlos Gamino on 03/25/14

Did you know that identity theft is one of the largest consumer complaints filed with the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) each year and undoubtedly, one of the nation’s fastest growing crimes? Identity thieves are often alleged to have stolen the personal identification information of a victim and having exploited that person’s identity to their own benefit. The types of offenses we often see when someone is charged with identity theft include fraudulent use of a credit card; falsely obtaining medical benefits; creating tax liabilities for, or falsely obtaining tax refunds from, someone else by working under someone else’s name or social security number; providing someone else’s name when arrested for a crime.  Plainly, these criminal offenses can have large and long lasting implications for the person whose identity was stolen and therefore there are significant criminal penalties for anyone convicted of identity theft fraud charges.
