Identity theft is a crime committed when a person steals the identity of another person in an attempt to obtain money or other goods. It is a crime that involves fraud and is considered a federal offense by the United States Government. A person could steal a credit card, driver’s license, identification card, birth certificate, passport, social security card, medical information, insurance information, mail and banking information; or any other valuable identifiable information when committing identity theft.

In addition, a person may use false identification in the effort to say that they are someone they are not. In recent years, identity theft has increasingly grown with the increased use of the internet. Identity theft is a serious federal crime and, depending upon the circumstances surrounding a case, identity theft can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony offense. Identity theft is often linked to many other white collar crimes and will involve a very thorough investigation by law enforcement and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation).
