Identity theft lawyer New Jersey | Consumer Attorneys

Welcome to Consumer Attorneys! Chances are you’re here because you or a family member have been victimized by some type of identity theft. If so, you couldn't be in better hands. Consumer Attorneys' home base is New York City, but our identity theft lawyer teams serve consumers in New Jersey, as well as other locations nationwide in state and federal courts.

Though it’s no consolation to know that you’re not alone in your plight, you may be interested in a few statistics surrounding identity theft in the U.S.: A whopping 33% of Americans have experienced some sort of identity theft, and 20% of that cohort have experienced it two or more times.

No one in New Jersey—or anywhere— is safe from identity theft. In fact, any person with a Social Security number is a potential victim, even children. Children's Social Security numbers represent a clean slate, making it even more enticing for scammers to use it to apply for government benefits, open bank accounts and lines of credit, and apply for loans—and that's just the beginning.    

Shockingly, one American falls prey to identity theft every two seconds, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. However, Consumer Attorneys is here to help you get your life back!

Identity theft in New Jersey is rampant

There are numerous ways New Jersey residents can fall prey to identity theft:

Government identity theft: Your Social Security number, passport, or driver's license was used locally or nationally to apply for government benefits, such as unemployment, disability, food-stamps, etc.

Scam identity theft: You received an email, call, text, or social media request with information regarding goods or services you believed were legitimate but weren't, and you supplied the scammer with your personal information. 

Financial identity theft: Someone has taken over your bank account or set up a new account in your name without your permission. 

Data breach identity theft: You were notified that your personal information was exposed in a data breach or other security incident. 

Medical identity theft: You received notification from your medical provider or insurance company that your medical information was used by someone other than you. This could include prescriptions and a variety of health care services. Someone else has hold of your medical information, which could cause medical care providers to refuse to authorize critical prescriptions for you.

Criminal identity theft: You received a court summons or were informed by law enforcement that there is a warrant for your arrest, yet you did nothing wrong. Imposters provide stolen personal information to law enforcement during investigations or traffic violations. If the imposter is ordered to appear in court and doesn't show, authorities could issue an arrest warrant for an innocent party: you. 

Mortgage identity theft: Your home's title is in someone else's name, even while you are living in the home. A criminal steals your identity via phishing scams, stolen tax returns, or bank records and forges your deed or title documents in order to “sell” your home or borrow against it.

Once Consumer Attorneys accepts your case, our identity theft lawyers will work to recover financial losses and remedy other damages you have suffered because of it.
