What is Identity Theft?
Identity theft occurs when someone obtains and uses your personal information without your permission to commit a fraud. Identity theft is a state and federal crime. If you think you are a victim of identity theft, immediately contact your local police department or sheriff’s office and file a police report.
Identity Theft Unit
The Ohio Attorney General's Consumer Protection Section has created an Identity Theft Unit to help victims of identity theft rectify the effects of identity theft by working with credit reporting agencies, creditors, collectors, and any other entity who may have information that was obtained under fraudulent circumstances and by providing the necessary information to victims of identity theft to remedy the effects themselves.
