Florida Identity Theft Problems

Russell Law and Patrick Russell, Esq., a Miami Fraud lawyer, are available to assist you with your Florida identity theft case.  There is no doubt that identity theft is growing at an astronomical rate.  Today it really is a question of when your identity will be stolen not if it will be stolen.

Fraud on the Internet and identity theft have reached all time highs. Internet fraud has grown to cost consumers 54 billion dollars a year. Identity thieves are working harder and becoming more clever in the ways that they acquire information about you. Once your social security number, birth date and other relevant information is obtained, thieves can start applying for credit and charge cards on your behalf. Often, you will not find out until it is much too late as the invoices and statements for the goods purchased without your knowledge are mailed to addresses that the Identity Thieves provided when the account was established.

Russell Law can assist you in responding to banks, stores, and credit card companies when they demand payment for items you did not authorize.  Our Miami Fraud Lawyer will work directly with the banks, stores and credit card companies to clear your account.  Further, Russell Law will go through your credit report and take appropriate action to correct your credit and ensure that all such charges are either listed as disputed or ultimately removed.
