What is Identity Theft/Fraud?

Are you a victim?

“Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used to refer to types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another individual’s personal data in a way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain.” – (National Criminal Justice Reference Service)

You Can Help!

Contributions from individuals, foundations, and corporations are important in helping VRC continue its mission. Memorial, Honorary and Matching Gifts are also options for donation.

Victims Have the Right

  • To be notified of certain significant actions and proceedings within the criminal and juvenile justice systems pertaining to their case.
  • To be accompanied at all criminal and all juvenile proceedings by a family member, a victim advocate or other person providing assistance or support.
  • To have assistance in the preparation of, submission of and follow-up on crime victim compensation claims to the Office of Victims’ Services.
COMPENSATION

Victims of crime have the right to be compensated financially for their out of pocket losses due to emotional and physical injuries. We assist victims with properly completing the necessary paperwork to file a claim.
