Numerous Oklahoma state and federal laws apply to a wide variety of criminal acts broadly classified under identity theft, and state and federal investigators and prosecutors are pouring ever increasing resources into going after individuals and companies that may or may not be connected to identity theft crimes. It is easy for otherwise law-abiding people and businesses to find themselves the targets of criminal identity theft investigations – often for allegedly facilitating another’s identity theft actions – whether they were aware of criminal activity or not. Regardless of whether you are under investigation or charged as an identity thief or an accomplice (unwitting or otherwise), it is imperative to do everything you can to avoid steep criminal fines and jail sentences.
