San Diego Identity Theft Defense Attorney
Identity theft charges generally result from crimes based on deception and misrepresentation. Identity theft occurs when someone obtains another person’s social security number and other personal information, then uses this information to obtain credit cards and access bank and other online accounts. Once these accounts are breached, an identity thief can withdraw funds or make purchases under the victim’s name.
Identity theft is classified as a felony, and each piece of personal information unlawfully obtained is subject to a felony charge. Because numerous felony charges can accrue from one case, a strong criminal defense is important.
