Defintion of Identity Theft:

Rhode Island Code Chapter 11-49-1-3 defines Identity Theft as when someone deliberately owns, reproduces or transfers the identifying information of another, without his/her consent, and/or with the intention to commit fraud, or another illegal activity.  It also involves buying and selling personal identifying information.

This definition is a simple version of identity theft, as it can be spread into more complex terms. Common examples include using someone’s social security number or driver’s license to defraud or commit an unlawful activity.

The code further exempts minors under 21 who have falsified identification to purchase alcoholic beverages.
Other definitions that fall under this legal bracket include:

Identification Document – a card or document that was printed and sealed by the United States Government, a political office, or some other authoritative agency.

Other means of identification include, but aren’t limited to:

  • An alien registration number
  • A government passport number
  • A tax ID number
  • Bank account numbers, or other forms of financial information
