Connecticut Identity Theft
Like most other states, Connecticut has laws that deal with identity theft, which is defined as knowingly using someone else’s identifying information to obtain goods and services without authorization.
The statute itself is Connecticut Code § 53a-129a As with many other states, Connecticut law not only addresses the use of someone else’s personal information to commit a crime or fraud, but also trafficking (e.g., buying and selling) such information.
