Identity Fraud is a White Collar Crime
Since identity fraud is motivated by money and generally does not involve physical violence or force, it is classified as a white collar crime. The significant financial harm caused to victims has prompted prosecutors to aggressively pursue convictions in identity fraud cases. The penalties for a conviction depend on the monetary value and method of theft. Obtaining someone else’s personal information is sufficient for an identity theft charge, but the situation is much more serious when the information is used fraudulently.
Unlawful use of personal information includes:
- Applying for credit
- Wrongfully obtaining government benefits
- Committing income tax fraud
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Healthcare fraud
- Evading or avoiding arrest
Identity fraud cases are complicated because they can result in charges for the theft of the personal information, as well as additional charges based on how the information was used. When another person’s information is used in violation of federal law, the identity fraud charge may be prosecuted in federal court. If convicted, punishment can range from probation to lengthy prison sentences, depending on the specifics of the case.
