Hi! I’m Erin, an automated LegalShield representative here to assist you with any questions you may have.

What is criminal identity theft?

  • Criminal identity theft occurs when an individual is arrested for a crime or ticketed for a violation and then supplies the arresting officer with your name and PII (e.g. an address, date of birth, and/or Social Security number). The imposter may even present a fake driver’s license to law enforcement, further legitimizing the identity thief’s claim to be you.
