Different forms of identity theft

In the last couple of decades, identity theft has become a hot topic in Tennessee and around the nation as our world has become increasingly digital. However, many people may not realize that what can be construed as identity theft includes an extremely broad range of things. In short, identity theft is not simple and many things can lead a person to being accused of this type of white collar crime. Understanding these is important. 

The Balance explains that one form of alleged identity theft recognized today involves minors. Often referred to as child identity theft, these situations accuse an adult who may also be the child's parent of using that child's information to obtain credit, money or something else at the expense of the child's record. These actions may not be discovered for many years because of the child's age.

While most people know that Social Security numbers are often involved in identity theft cases, other information can be as well. Financial records, insurance data and medical information may also be included or used in some way that leads to allegations of identity theft. Synthetic identity theft is yet another type of crime in which a person is said to use different pieces of information from multiple persons to essentially create a whole new persona. 

If you would like to learn more about the various types of alleged identity theft and what is involved in these different actions, please feel free to visit the identity theft charge page of our Tennessee criminal defense website.
