Identity Theft is a multibillion-dollar business.  Proving your identity has been stolen and rectifying the situation can be highly complex, extremely stressful and possibly unsuccessful without the aid of a skilled Identity Theft attorney well versed in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA),  Electronic Funds Transfer Act (EFTA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and all related Federal and State laws.  The financial and emotional impact of Identity Theft can be devastating . . . if your identity has been compromised you need to take action immediately.  It is strongly suggested that you seek expert Legal advice.  

What’s the Difference between Identity Theft and Identity Fraud?

Identity theft:  a criminal uses your personal information to open new or abuse existing accounts/services in your name.

Identity Fraud: a criminal uses your financial information to make purchases, access your bank account and access your money.

Basically, Identity Theft involves the criminal “impersonating you” ie:  opening new accounts in your name, while Identity Fraud pertains to criminally accessing and exploiting your existing accounts.  

What Do Identity Thieves Do?  

Identity Theft leads to two types of Identity Fraud: having your money stolen and having new bills under your name. For instance:

  • accessing your available credit
  • opening loans or Credit Cards in your name
  • infiltrating your banking and other financial accounts 
  • opening or accessing service accounts in your name 
  • using your medical insurance.
  • filing tax returns in your name 
  • accessing your government benefits or setting up new accounts for benefits in your name

How Identity Theft Works: How Your Information Is Stolen

Unfortunately, skilled thieves can get to your information in a number of ways, both online and off.

Fraud at the Point of Sale

At the Point of Sale (POS), thieves use illegal tools to obtain your Credit Card or bank information. “Point of sale” refers to the register, gas pump, ATM, or any other place where you swipe, tap, or enter your Credit or Debit card. The technology at the POS is rigged in order to steal the encrypted information on your card and/or record your PIN. One example is a skimmer, which is a sneaky device that is made to look just like the hardware at the POS. It can be put on top of or behind the hardware, and when you swipe or enter your credit or debit card, it records the encrypted data. It’s also possible to put small cameras near the keyboard that can record the PIN as it’s entered. It’s also possible to obtain information by stealing mail or papers from your trash. Credit, debit, insurance, and benefit cards can be taken out of trash bins and swiped. Be careful how and where you dispose of your mail, documents and expired cards!

Scams on the Internet, by Email, and Over the Phone

There are other ways that Identity Theft can occur: through calls, texts, emails, and websites. This kind of Identity Theft involves contacting you directly to get your personal information … it’s called phishing. Identity thieves pose as representatives of Credit Card companies such as banks, healthcare providers, insurance companies,  service providers, a charitable organization etc to “check” or “update” your personal information. Their goal is to obtain financial information, account details, and personal information.  Here are some examples:

  1. Fake web pages. Pages that come up in your search results that look real but aren’t. When you look for “customer service” on Google for a cell phone company or an online store, for example, you might see a fake account for that company. Always go to the Official Site of a company or institution.  
  2. False Emails. For example, you may get an email that looks like it came from your bank, a service provider, or a store chain. If you open the email or any attachments, click on any links and give information, you could be compromising your privacy.
  3. Calls and/or texts are frequently used to illegally obtain information.  

How Identity Theft Lawyers Help

An Identity Theft (also termed Consumer Protection) Lawyer will help you navigate the complexities of dealing with Identity Theft. They can assist you in the following ways:

  • explain your Legal Rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Electronic Funds Transfer Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and other applicable laws.
  • direct you to the businesses, consumer reporting agencies, data providers, and Government Agencies you should contact to report the incident.
  • provide practical advice for your current dilemma and how to avoid further problems.
  • act on your behalf  to successfully dispute information on your Credit Record and prove that Identity Theft has occurred.
  • hold consumer reporting agencies, data providers, and others responsible for any failures to guard your financial privacy.
  • shield you from unwanted calls and harassment by debt collectors 
  • bring those responsible for the theft to justice

Will an Identity Theft Lawyer get me my money back?

Identity theft lawyers help you get your finances back in order by defining which debts are actually yours and which are fraudulent, contact the appropriate entities to reestablish your Credit Score and file a lawsuit for compensation when applicable.

What to Do If Someone Steals Your Identity

If someone steals your identity, you need to take action immediately. The best way is to contact a lawyer that specializes in Identity Theft crimes.  You should also call all the necessary banks, stores, and government agencies, check your Credit Reports and account statements, ask for account freezes, and change your passwords.

How Will I Know If Someone Has Stolen My Identity?

Sometimes it’s easy to spot because large, obvious purchases or withdrawals have been made and sometimes it is very subtle. Criminals sometimes use multiple names to make smaller purchases less often as part of a long-term plan. The loss can still add up over time, but you or your bank may not be able to see it immediately. The best thing you can do is keep up with your Credit Reports, and always check your bills, accounts, and balances carefully. 

How to Deal with the Effects of Identity Theft

Speaking with an Identity Theft lawyer is the quickest and most proactive step you can take. They can help you through the complicated legal system, be your arbiter and sue for damages when applicable.  Without their expert guidance you may have your rights violated and end up in a serious financial crisis.  You should contact a Legal Expert specializing in Identity Theft law.  

Who Will a Lawyer Sue for Identity Theft?

  • Any company that caused or helped to cause a data breach or security failure that led to the Identity Theft.
  • Any company that doesn’t quickly and effectively look into the Identity Fraud and remove it from your Credit Report, Credit History, and profile.

What Compensation Can I expect?

Your Identity Theft lawyer will discuss compensation with you once all the facts are compiled.  When applicable, your lawyer will sue for damages dependent upon the factors of your specific case.

Identity Theft Legal Fees

All legal fees are collected from the offending parties concerned … the backs, data, collectors, hackers etc who caused or were party to the theft of your Identity.   You do not pay any legal fees.

Protect Your Personal Data

  • Keep constant track of your accounts . . . check balances, withdrawals, purchase etc. 
  • Check your Credit Record monthly. Get a free report from Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion. You can do this via annualcreditreport.com, by calling 877-322-8228, or by using the request form.  Other sites may not be secure so we suggest only using annualcreditreport.com
  • Don’t give out your information! Don’t give out personal information over the phone or online. People calling pose as representatives of a business, the government, or even the Police. Hang up and call the institution they say they are representing to see if the call is legitimate.  
  • Do not give out your Social Security Number (SSN). 
  • Watch out for fake websites and emails. Even if they look like real businesses, agencies, or groups, you should always be wary and not trust anything you see online. Always use official sites to contact business.  
  • Don’t connect to public Wi-Fi. 
  • Use a backpack, purse or wallet that blocks RFID signals. Keeping your credit and debit cards in a safe will prevent data theft.
  • Use strong passwords and reliable security software. 
  • Don’t risk anything if something doesn’t seem right. It is better to be cautious that sorry.

How Should I Choose an Identity Theft Lawyer?

Look for lawyers who practice Identity Theft (aka Consumer Protection) law. It is imperative to consult/hire a specialist as Identity Theft laws are very complex and your entire financial future could be at stake.  Would you entrust a General Practitioner to treat a brain tumor?  Specialists identify and resolve issues quickly and thoroughly making sure that every aspect of the case is taken into account and that the outcome will be the best one possible.  When choosing a specialist you want one with extensive training and years of experience.
