What Is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is the stealing of someone else’s private information usually for the purpose of opening fake accounts, making money or forging a driver’s license or passport. Identity theft is sometimes done through email “phishing” attempts, in which the perpetrator gets someone to give out their personal information under false pretenses, like giving a credit card number to buy a piece of merchandise that will never be delivered. Identity thieves have stolen social security numbers, bank account numbers, and other personal information this way, causing victims enormous amounts of financial distress and grief.

At the Shah Law Firm PLLC in Phoenix, Arizona, we understand the seriousness of an identity theft charge and will use our expertise to defend you.


Identity Theft Laws

Identity theft is a crime characterized by the use of another person’s identity and information for unlawful purposes or to gain employment, a passport, or other benefits. Businesses are not allowed to retain customer information, like credit card numbers, unless the information is used to verify identity or age. It is also illegal for businesses or retailers to give this type of information to third parties. If a business becomes aware that there’s been a security breach, it must inform its customers and an investigation must be conducted.


Identity Theft Charges

Identity theft charges apply both to stealing an identity and to using, recording or purchasing this private information. In the state of Arizona, identity theft is considered a Class 4 Felony, carrying penalties of both prison time and fines. Prison time involves a minimum of one year, with a maximum of three years and eight months. Fines can involve thousands of dollars. Upon conviction, the money that was stolen must also often be paid back by the person guilty of the crime.
