The Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act of 1998 made it a federal crime when anyone knowingly transfers or uses without legal authority the identification documentation of another person with the intent to commit, aid, or abet any unlawful activity that constitutes a felony. This simply increased the punishments for already existing fraud statutes. These types of cases usually involve credit cards and checking accounts. Many defenses are available to these types of cases. Call Johansson and Lopez Attorneys immediately at 954-745-7517 to discuss the defenses available to you.
