Identity Theft Charges: State And Federal

The Internet makes it relatively easy to gain access to identifying information such as credit card numbers, bank accounts and Social Security numbers.

Put simply, identity theft involves misappropriating someone else's personal information for financial gain. It covers activities such as:

  • Trafficking the personal identification information of others
  • Selling, possessing or buying false ID cards
  • Creating counterfeit ID cards
  • Using forged checks or other monetary instruments
  • Using stolen credit card information

Nevada law enforcement takes a strong stance in investigating and prosecuting identity theft. As a felony offense, identity theft can result in a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and up to $100,000 in fines. What's more, many types of identity theft — such as credit card fraud, bank fraud and mail/wire fraud — can be charged at the federal level.
