Identity Theft is a White Collar Crime

White collar crimes are offenses that are motivated by money and that do not involve physical force or violence. Many people think that these crimes are less severe than others because there is no physical force involved. However, prosecutors aggressively pursue white collar offenders because of the financial harm that can occur to unsuspecting victims. The law also allows for serious penalties that often depend on the method of theft and the amount of money that was misappropriated.

Identity theft is a particularly complex white collar crime charge because it can involve many different allegations including different types of fraud, intentions to do wrong, and theft. Some methods of identity theft that may be alleged include the following:

  • Stealing someone’s wallet and using their credit cards or information;
  • Obtaining someone’s personal information via fraudulent means and using it for various purposes;
  • Using a deceased person’s information;
  • Obtaining information through internet phishing scams;
  • Forging signatures on checks, credit card receipts, applications, or other documents;
  • Impersonating someone else.

Simply obtaining someone else’s personal information in an unlawful manner is enough to be charged with identity theft. However, charges can add up if you actually used their information fraudulently. Stolen information such as names, social security numbers and birth dates can be used for many unlawful reasons, including:

  • Applying for credit;
  • Bank withdrawals;
  • Committing income tax fraud;
  • Committing bankruptcy fraud
  • Wrongfully obtaining government benefits;
  • Healthcare fraud;
  • Obtaining prescription medications;
  • Evading an arrest warrant or otherwise avoiding arrest.

Many identity theft cases are so complicated because they involve the charge for the identity theft itself in addition to charges stemming from how the information was fraudulently used. In many cases, identity theft can be charged in federal court because information was used in violation of federal criminal laws. The potential penalties in identity theft cases can range from probation to many years in prison, depending on the circumstances of your case.
