Rancho Cucamonga Identity Theft Attorney
Standing Up for You When No One Else Will
Identity theft is a form of fraud in which another person's identity is assumed for illegal purposes, most often to steal or siphon money from their accounts or to utilize their credit or clean record. Identity theft can occur when a person's records, credit card statements, or other important documents are physically stolen out of the garbage, but more often than not, identity theft occurs online.

Identity Theft Crimes & Federal Investigations
The Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act of 1998 instated some forms of identity theft as federal crimes. If convicted at the federal level, you could face heavy fines and up to 25 years in federal prison.
Since identity theft can be a federal crime, it is not uncommon for federal agencies to be tasked to investigate identity theft charges and accusation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for example, might be working hand-in-hand with the prosecution on a case to put you behind bars. Investigators are meant to be focused on nothing but the truth and should not take sides. However, it is clear that FBI investigators are looking to land a conviction just as much as district attorneys.
Do not go up against the prosecution and the federal agencies assisting it alone. Choose a powerful defense law firm to even the odds.
