John Sutton

The most common forms of identity theft involve ATM fraud, Credit Card fraud and Internet fraud. NSW Attorney General has stated that identity theft:

"...is a growth crime, costing Australians millions of dollars a year and we are determined to give police the power they need to investigate and prosecute it".

The government's action to try and address ATM fraud, credit card fraud and internet fraud included the creation of three new offences of identity fraud. The offences are very serious and in some cases carry maximum penalties of 10 years imprisonment.
