What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is a major problem millions of Americans are facing. According to the Department of Justice, identity theft and fraud crimes refer to an individual or company wrongfully obtaining “another person’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception” for economic gain. 

Anyone can become a victim of identity theft, including individuals and organizations. Recently, the crime has exploded with the help of online sources. 

In the last reporting year:

  • 47% of people were victims of financial identity theft
  • Total losses were approximately $712.4 billion, a 42% increase from the prior year
  • Projections estimate next year’s losses to be $721.2 billion

Most instances of identity theft occur online through unsolicited emails. However, thieves can collect your information in a number of other ways, including:

  • Searching your trash for “pre-approved” credit cards and loan applications
  • Engaging in “shoulder surfing” in public places in order to overhear sensitive credit card or social security information via phone or other conversations
  • “Skimming” your credit card or bank card information at gas stations using illegal card readers

How Can Our Identity Theft Attorneys Help?

Identity theft is a serious crime. According to The National Conference of State Legislatures, a conviction of identity theft carries heavy penalties, including: 

  • A felony or misdemeanor charge
  • An order of restitution for all financial losses related to the theft

While your case may be prosecuted in criminal court, it may be in your best interests to recover damages in civil court. Our identity theft attorneys can:

  • Thoroughly investigate your case
  • Gather critical evidence to support your losses
  • Retain the services of investigators, forensic accountants, and other experts unavailable to law enforcement 
  • Explore all options, including the possibility of third-party liability

Our dedicated lawyers will fight to restore your reputation and financial health. Schedule a consultation today.
