South Carolina Identity Theft Network
Coordinated by South Carolina Victim Assistance Network
The South Carolina Identity Theft Network was created to help expand and improve the outreach and capacity of victim service programs to better address the rights and needs of victims of identity theft in South Carolina.
The SC ID Theft Network hosts statewide meetings that involve members of the criminal justice community, federal and state agencies, and public and private businesses, who have a common vision to move forward and help each other better serve identity theft victims.
The mission of the network is to develop a “one stop shop” to offer specific and expert assistance in working with identity theft victims.

The South Carolina Identity Theft Network is coordinated by the South Carolina Victim Assistance Network (SCVAN).

Identity Theft in South Carolina: Since 2007, South Carolina has passed 18 laws protecting victims of identity theft, and many violations are felony offenses, punishable by up to ten years in prison and/or a fine. However, there is little information about how to access help, how to recover damages, and who is available to assist victims of identity theft. The South Carolina Identity Theft Network seeks to remedy these problems.
