Rock Hill Identity Theft Lawyer

Identity theft is a new area that is a rapidly growing area of the law. Not only do the traditional forms of identity theft still exist on the books in South Carolina, such as forged or altered documents like checks, driver's licenses, and passports, but now the Internet and computers have caused new types of identity theft laws to be passed.

If you have been accused of committing identity theft you may be tempted to dispute the allegations and immediately try and defend your name. However, it is in your best interest to not talk about the case with anyone except an experienced state and federal criminal defense lawyer who has handled these types of cases.

Christopher Wellborn is a Rock Hill identity theft defense attorney who has over 25 years of criminal defense practice handling all types of white collar crime cases. He is here to provide you with clear guidance and effective representation.

Contact Christopher A. Wellborn, P.A., before you make any statements to anyone, including an investigator or law enforcement.

South Carolina White Collar Crime Lawyer

Along with passport forgery and credit card fraud, now identity theft can occur to a completely unsuspecting person who believes he or she is taking part in a legitimate business opportunity. For instance, many work-from-home business ventures that are advertised on the Internet have people engaging in activity where they think they have permission to perform certain tasks, but in fact, you are functioning as a fake entity.

As a result, you end up soliciting others, and unknowingly stealing someone else's identity as part of a conspiracy to defraud others. In these cases, you not only end up being accused of being part of a criminal enterprise, but you are also a victim because you were taken advantage of.

We can help you when your case has foreign and domestic implications because the business originates abroad, but you are operating on their behalf in the United States. These cases are usually brought in federal court and we have extensive experience defending all types of financial fraud cases where federal law and evidence standards are at issue. We can help show you had no actual knowledge of the true motives by the people who hired you and that you had no intent to actually hurt others.
