Make sure you have an identity theft lawyer in Miami on your side.

Can Identity Theft Charges Be Dropped?

Yes there is a possibility that identity theft charges can be dropped under the following conditions:

  • If you have evidence that shows you did not have any illegal intention, you are not guilty of identity theft.
  • If you did not take or use anyone's personal information illegally, you should not be charged of identity theft.
  • If there is a lack of evidence against you, that will help your innocence of identity theft charges.
  • Falsely Accused.

Identity theft is widespread, especially since many people pay online and post personal information on social media sites.

Please remember that identity theft takes the name, address, and other personal information and uses it to access credit cards, make purchases, or steal cash from bank accounts.

A victim’s credit score can easily get damaged, and the bank account drains without the individual knowing about it as it’s an easy crime to commit in only a short time.
