What is Identity Crime, Identity Theft and Identity Fraud?
Identity Crime is defined as knowingly acquiring, manipulating, producing, transferring, possessing, or using identity information or documents in order to commit a fraud, or to commit other unlawful activities.
Identity Theft means one who knowingly obtains or possesses another person's identity information in circumstances giving rise to a reasonable inference that the information is intended to be used to commit an indictable offense that includes fraud, deceit or falsehood.
Identity Fraud means an event that occurs when a false identity is used, or when another individual's identity details are used in support of illegal activity, or when a person avoids an obligation or liability by falsely claiming status as an identity-fraud victim.
