Identity Theft

PURPOSE
The purpose of this circular is to standardize Identity Theft Prevention and Victim Information presented during community crime prevention meetings. The circular will also assist Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) personnel to impart basic Identity Theft Prevention and Victim Information tips to community members to help slow down one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes. The circular will also serve to warn community members how to take steps to protect their privacy and to educate Identity Theft victims about what to do when an identity thief strikes.
INTRODUCTION
The crime of identity theft is on the rise and it has become a significant problem for the LAPD and for people who reside in the City of Los Angeles. This is because there has been an increase in the number of reported identity theft incidents and in the level of fear within the community. Additionally, the identity theft issue continues to receive considerable media attention. The LAPD believes there could be as many as 10,000 reported identity theft incidents within the City of Los Angeles in 2003. To more effectively coordinate identity theft investigations, the LAPD now investigates these crimes through their Commercial Crimes Division. The LAPD encourages anyone victimized by identity theft to contact the LAPD or their local law enforcement agency to report the incident.
The law making identity theft a crime was enacted as a misdemeanor crime in 1998. In 1999, the law was upgraded to an alternate felony/misdemeanor crime. The crime of identity theft is described in the California Penal Code as follows:
Section 530.5 PC: Unauthorized use of personal identifying information to obtain credit, goods, services, or medical information in the name of another person.
Section 530.5 (a) PC: Every person who willfully obtains personal identifying information, as defined in subdivision (b), of another person without the authorization of that person, and uses that information for any unlawful purpose, including to obtain, or attempt to obtain, credit, goods, services, or medical information in the name of the other person without the consent of that person is guilty of a public offense, and upon conviction therefore, shall be punished either by imprisonment in a county jail not to exceed one year, a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars, or both that imprisonment and fine, or by imprisonment in the state prison, a fine not to exceed ten thousand dollars, or both that imprisonment and fine.
Section 530.5 (b) PC: "Personal identifying information," as used in this section, means the name, address, telephone number, driver’s license number, social security number, place of employment, employee identification number, mother’s maiden name, demand deposit account number, savings account number, or credit card number of an individual person.
Section 530.5 (c) PC: In any case in which a person willfully obtains personal identifying information of another person without the authorization of that person, and uses that information to commit a crime in addition to a violation of subdivision (a), and is convicted of that crime, the court records shall reflect that the person whose identity was falsely used to commit the crime did not commit the crime.
