Identity Theft


 

A website offered by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Attorney General’s office is available to benefit those who may be a victim of identity theft. 

This website, www.myfloridalegal.com/identitytheft, offers crucial information to victims of this crime.  One of the components of the site contains instructions for initiating an identity theft claim.  It also contains an “Identity Theft Victim Kit” to assist users in navigating through the process of rebuilding their good names.

The information offered is vital to those who may be a victim, but it also contains educational information regarding the far-reaching ramifications of the crime.

Identity theft is a third degree felony and defined as the illegal

acquisition of personal information such as name, social security number, driver’s license, or bank/credit account number in order to engage in unlawful acts. The Economic Crimes Unit of the State Attorney’s office aggressively pursues identity theft prosecutions throughout the five-county circuit.
