Identity Theft

Identity theft is often presented as a very dramatic, hard-to-solve problem in which social security information and other data is stolen from you. Smaller types of identity theft actually happen more often than people think, but, with good legal help, can definitely be taken care of.

How do I know if identity theft has happened to me?

Have you experienced any of these recently:

  • Had unauthorized purchases on a credit card (big or small)?
  • Had irregularities in credit reporting?
  • Received letters saying you’ve opened up an account(s) with someone, which you didn’t?
  • Anything else unusual with regards to credit cards, credit reporting, banking, etc.?

If you’ve experienced any of these irregularities, you’re in the right place, and it’s good you’re looking into legal help. These actions are indicative of identity theft.

Debt collectors are pursuing me for debt I didn’t make; it was created by identity theft. What do I do?

There’s a provision regarding debt collectors who are pursuing you for an identity theft debt, which you do not owe. If you tell the debt collector it was identity theft making an authorized purchase and they continue to come after you, even after you gave them notice, you could be eligible for damages of up to $30,000.
