1 COMPROMISED IDENTITY CLAIM The Washington State Patrol’s solution for victims of identity theft

2 CRIMINAL RECORDS DIVISION CRIMINAL HISTORY SUPPORT UNIT  Jamie Arras  Jenny Nashleanas

3 THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, FOR THE 15 TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR, HAS LISTED IDENTITY THEFT AS THE #1 COMPLAINT. AN IDENTITY IS STOLEN EVERY 2 SECONDS IN THE US

4 IN 2014, THERE WERE 332,646 COMPLAINTS OF IDENTITY THEFT NATIONWIDE. IN 2014, WASHINGTON STATE RANKED 2 ND IN THE NATION FOR MOST IDENTITY THEFT COMPLAINTS.

5 Someone giving false information upon arrest. Many people are victimized by “friends” or relatives. Alias names remain on the “bad guy’s” record, thereby linking the “good guy” to their criminal history information. Common names -sometimes there just are two Bob Johnson’s. WASIS will give results for similar names and/or dates of birth. WHY THE NEED FOR A CIC?

6 EVOLUTION OF THE CIC Started in 1972 with the Personal Identification letter. In 2011 introduced the CIC card. Since the CIC program was initiated in March 2011, 458 identity cards and letters have been issued.

7 PREVIOUS PERSONAL ID – THE OLD WAY Letter only! The original Personal ID letter notified the individual: Of their newly established or verified SID number It explained to anyone reading it that the SID was established (or verified) at the request of the subject either: because the subject may be a victim of ID theft OR because the subject chose to secure easy ID in case of death, injury, amnesia, etc. It advised that future background checks should be verified with a thumbprint or fingerprints.

8 CURRENT CIC PROGRAM What you get now... Card Letter Personal ID will now show up on a background check

9 COMPROMISED IDENTITY CLAIM – THE CARD Card is covered in tamper evident film (with WSP logo), laminated and returned to the claimant Photo Front Thumbprint SID NameDOB Explanation of CIC card Back

10 COMPROMISED IDENTITY CLAIM – THE LETTER The CIC letter returned to the claimant with the card gives more detailed information than the previous letter. It provides the SID number – briefly explaining the significance of a SID number. Specifically addresses the other individuals on the candidate list and states the claimant’s fingerprints do not match. Mentions identity theft as one of the reasons for a CIC card and provides the Criminal History Support Unit’s phone number for questions.

11  The Personal ID and CIC are voluntary – a person may request to have the personal identification information removed from the WSP records at any time.  If a claimant already has a Personal ID on file and would like to upgrade to a CIC, they may do so at no extra charge.  If the CIC card is lost or stolen, the claimant must go through the entire process again, including paying the $26.00 fee.

12 THE CIC WORKS ONLY FOR CRIMINAL RECORDS, IT DOESN’T HELP:  Victims of financial fraud – stolen credit cards/checks  Victims of insurance fraud or medical identity theft  Those trying to clean up their driving records  Those who don’t have someone with a similar name or who are using their name/DOB

13 Those with common names or are victims of identity theft AND get run frequently through the WATCH system. - Volunteers for the school district or other organizations - Jobs that require yearly background checks - Those seeking employment. Many jobs require a background check to be hired - Those trying to rent an apartment or house - Those that work in health care or other services that have background checks run through DSHS - Those looking to adopt or be foster parents WHO THE CIC CARD WILL HELP:
