Definition Edit

Identity-related crime refers to both identity theft and identity fraud.

Overview Edit

Identity-related crime can be defined as a cycle with five distinct phases: (1) unauthorized or illegal acquisition of identifying data or items (e.g., cards or documents); (2) transfer of the initially acquired identifying data or documents; (3) manipulation of the data or items (e.g., through alteration, compilation, or forgery/counterfeiting); (4) transfer of the manipulated data or items; and (5) use of the data or items for fraud or concealment of criminal identity.[1]
