If you are or believe you might be a victim of Identity Theft, this valuable collection of information and contacts will assist in recovering from or preventing the crime of identity theft.

In matters such as Identity Theft, pursuit of a remedy exclusively through the criminal justice system may be insufficient. In these types of cases, the criminal justice system cannot always provide individuals with the level of relief they may seek. Therefore, victims of Identity Theft are strongly encouraged to seek the assistance of an attorney of their own choice for any civil or other remedies that may be available.

The role of the Attorney General, and the Division of Criminal Justice, in dealing with an individual case of Identity Theft is limited. As a matter of law, the Attorney General cannot provide legal advice to private individuals, entities or non-governmental organizations. The information contained on this web site is provided as a public and referral service. This information cannot be considered as legal advice or a legal opinion of the Attorney General or the Division of Criminal Justice.
