ID theft leads to prison ...

... for the victim, not the perpetrator in this case.

A BBC man on holiday in Slovenia spent 2 nights in prison there as a consequence of an identity theft incident stemming from the theft of his passport years earlier. He was accused of having defrauded a German company of €450k.

Identity theft is clearly more than a financial crime. Is it any wonder that people feel personally violated when someone assumes their identity?
