Defense against phishing scam charges

Phishing is the attempt to get sensitive information like online data and credit card details, often for malicious reasons, by posing as a legitimate company in an electronic communication. Phishing is fairly easy to do these days. The scammer poses as a bank or a company. He asks the consumer for personal information once the consumer is redirected to the scammers' website. From there the scammer can access the consumer's account details. This can also be termed as identity theft. Spoofing and phishing can be put into the same category. In both cases, the scammer tries to acquire social security numbers, credit card numbers, date of birth, etc.

Identity theft carries serious penalties

Anytime you use someone's personal information for your own financial gain, it may be considered identity theft. You may be accused of identity theft if police believe you used someone else's credit card or opened a line of credit in another person's name without his or her permission. Being suspected of using another person's identification fraudulently, such as when you are applying for a job, may also result in a charge of identity theft.

Facing online identity theft charges

Using deceptive measures to steal someone's identity and use it for your personal gain is called identity theft. Abusing the victim's personal or financial information may result in severe ramifications. Federal and state laws against Internet crimes have become strict with the increased use of the Internet. Defendants might face harsh penalties if they are found guilty of online identity theft.
