Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires the Attorney General to establish and maintain a database of persons who have been victims of identity theft. Under the provisions of the bill, access to information in the database will be limited to law enforcement agencies, victims of identity theft, and persons and agencies authorized by the victims of identity theft. In order to be included in the database, the bill requires a victim to submit to the Attorney General: (1) a copy of any report filed with a local law enforcement agency or the Federal Trade Commission related to the claim identity theft; (2) a copy of any court order obtained in relation to the claim of identify theft, if any order has been issued; and (3) any other information prescribed by the Attorney General. This information in the database may be used by victims in order to establish to credit reporting agencies and other entities that they have had their identities stolen. Additionally, the information may be used to assist law enforcement agencies in the ongoing investigation of identity theft.
