Understanding Theft & Fraud Charges
In today’s day and age, identity theft and credit card fraud are under constant surveillance. Authorities work quickly to take action against individuals suspected of acting in a criminal manner. The penalties vary depending on the severity of the case, but any criminal conviction could lead to life-altering consequences.
Identity theft is often classified as the knowledgeable taking of another individual’s information in order to achieve financial gain or use the information for personal benefit.
Crimes associated with identity theft can include:
- Stealing and using Social Security numbers and information
- Using stolen credit cards
- Using stolen passwords or PINs
- Insurance fraud
- Bank fraud
- Credit card application fraud
Stealing valuable information from another can be a serious offense, and charges can be filed if you stole:
- Driver’s licenses
- Bank account information
- Credit cards
- Insurance information
- Legal documentation
- Identification guards or passwords
Even if you were not the one to initially take the information, knowingly using stolen information can lead to criminal charges.
