When someone else uses your name without your consent, you are the victim of identity theft and may benefit from the services of an identity theft attorney. There are many types of identity theft: financial identity theft occurs when someone uses your name and social security number to make purchases; criminal identity theft occurs when someone gets arrested and gives your name as theirs; identity cloning occurs when someone pretends to be you; and commercial identity theft occurs when someone uses your business' name and reputation to get credit.

An identity theft fraud lawyer will recognize the signs when a theft has taken place, and know best how to help you get your identity back.
