Question by V.G. Grace: What is the definition of identity theft?
If for nine months, a person or persons unknown have been stealing a family’s images and writing explicit, racist, pornographic, and violent content on a social network forum, utilizing these stolen images, would that be considered identity theft? If so, isn’t identity theft illegal in all 50 states and therefore criminal activity?
Yeah, I know it isn’t a financial crime. What I am inquiring is whether this is considered a crime–at all.
then perhaps I used the wrong terminology. Perhaps “impersonation” would be the better choice of term. I’ve experienced a nine month campaign of having my family’s images stolen and the person/persons making hundreds of racist, explicit, and violent posts on the internet, using these stolen images of my family. I suppose my question is–WHAT is this considered and IS it a crime?
