Identity Thieves: Profiling Ordinary Offenders

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The available academic literature on identity theft relies mainly on surveys that seek to measure the extent of the problem and the financial prejudice suffered by individual victims and their financial institutions, but provide little information on perpetrators and their techniques. Meanwhile, the news media and many self-appointed experts depict identity thieves as an elite group of internet hackers who run sophisticated international scams from their Eastern European bases. This glamorous narrative was confronted to the more ordinary reality of identity theft experienced by American law enforcement agencies through their arrest and prosecution efforts. A database of 195 identity theft cases which occurred over a six-month period in 2008 and implicated 422 offenders was assembled from media records. This database allows us to portray identity theft as a form of crime that requires only minimal amounts of technical expertise and can still yield significant profits. The sentencing outcome of incidents that resulted in arrests will be examined. Finally, the crime prevention implications of these findings will be discussed in this presentation.
