We have noticed in our practice an increase of family members who are committing identity theft against each other. We often see this in the context of a divorce – a spouse or ex spouse will steal the other’s identity so that they can get access to credit. But we have not seen a daughter steal her mother’s identity but apparently it happens as reported here:
Charges include obtaining a money transfer for £6,000 from the Alliance and Leicester by falsely representing she was her mother, Gail McGibbon, obtaining a credit card by falsely representing she was her sister, Sarah Dibb, obtaining a credit card from Egg by deceptively claiming she was Gail McGibbon, theft of £614, £1,203 and £150 from Egg and theft of £284, £250 and £100 from Monument.
