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).
