Were You Charged With ID Theft?
Charges of identity theft, like any criminal charges, require a timely and well-thought out response. You cannot ignore criminal charges and hope they will go away. You may believe that the ID theft charges are false, are exaggerated or are not important in the grand scheme of things. But letting your criminal case take its natural course may land you in jail, leave you with a criminal record and, in many other ways, change your life for the worse for a very long time.
There may be a good explanation as to why you allegedly used another person’s identity (perhaps using a stolen Social Security number and other forms of identification) without authorization for purposes such as the following:
- To open up credit
- To buy a car
- To conduct business online
- To commit bank fraud using counterfeit checks and other false documents, to make false loan applications, to open accounts and to conduct financial transactions
- To make fraudulent bank withdrawals
You may be accused of credit card fraud, check fraud, ID card forgery or some other means by which you supposedly “stole someone’s identity.” The alleged ID theft may have involved a business situation, a family matter, a roommate situation or an incident involving someone you do not know.
