Definition of an Identity Theft Crime

California Penal Code Section 530.5 defines Identity Theft crimes as those crimes in which a person willfully obtains the personal identifying information of another person, and uses that information for any unlawful purpose, including obtaining, or attempting to obtain, credit, goods, services, real property, or medical information without the consent of that person. Identity theft offenders face any number of severe penalties and the cases are vigorously pursued by prosecutors. A person convicted of identity theft may be punished by a fine and/or up to a year imprisonment in county jail or state prison. Some examples of identity theft offenses may be wrongfully obtaining the names, addresses, Social Security numbers, birth dates, or bank account numbers of another person, and then using that information to open credit card accounts, apply for loans, open bank accounts, steal money from the victim’s existing accounts, rent an apartment, or file bankruptcy.
