What Is False Personation?
False personation occurs anytime a person falsely assumes the identity of someone else for their own personal benefit or financial gain. False personation can also occur when a person assumes the identity of another in order to avoid debts or expenses. If you have been the victim of identity theft, contact a Florida identity theft attorney today.
A good example of false personation could be someone who tries to pass themselves off as someone else in order to wrongfully cash another person’s check. One person misrepresenting themselves as another person is grounds for false personation charges in the state of Florida and federally. There does not need to be any kind of change in appearance, disguise, voice alteration or other changes for a person to face criminal charges.
But you may also be able to take civil action against them, and anyone else whose negligence directly or indirectly caused your identity to be stolen through false personation.
Consequences of False Impersonation in Florida
If you are a victim of false personation, you may be unprepared for how dramatically your life could be affected. Depending on the details of your case, there are any number of catastrophes that could occur after someone else has assumed your identity. Some of the more common consequences victims of false personation have to deal with include:
Credit report errors
Fraudulent lines of credit
Plummeting credit scores
Inability to access needed credit
Victims of false personation are entitled to justice. Although the criminal court system will determine whether the at-fault parties are going to be tried criminally, you may be able to take civil action against them and seek maximum compensation for your damages. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) provides opportunities for you to hold them accountable due to FCRA violations. Contact our Florida Fair Credit Reporting Act lawyers today to find out how much you could be awarded.
What To Do if You Are a Victim of False Personation in Florida
One of the very first things you should do when you discover that your identity has been assumed by someone else is to contact an attorney. From there, we can reach out to law enforcement and file a police report so that they can attempt to pursue an investigation and/or criminal charges against the person who stole your identity.
We can also assist you in notifying credit bureaus and examining the details of your credit report thoroughly. This will help to ensure that any fraudulent accounts, or credit report errors relating to false personation can be disputed and removed.
In the event that the credit bureaus fail to do their part to correct the issues on your credit report, you may be able to file a claim against them under the FCRA. Our firm can also assist you in filing claims against the person who assumes your identity and anyone whose negligence is responsible for your identity being falsely assumed. Here, we can seek full compensation for the emotional, financial, and physical losses you suffered as a result of what you have been through.
