Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes. The State of California and U.S. Federal Government have made it a felony to use the personal identifying information of another person without authorization of that person for any unlawful purpose, such as obtaining credit, goods, services, or medical information. Because the internet is often a resource for the commission of identity theft and credit card crimes, both the state and federal governments dedicate significant resources to the investigation of identity theft crimes, which carry penalties if an individual is convicted.
