Question: My husband and I recently had $40,000 stolen out of his 401K due to identity theft. The company is saying they are not responsible since the party had access to our SS# and pin#. Can they do this? We gave them a LOT of pertinetn information in order to go after the person but they said there is nothing they can do? They said we'd have to hire our own lawyer. Who do we contact???

Answer:

In Arizona, the Attorney General has an Identity Theft Hotline where an individual can file a complaint. The number for that hotline is (602) 542-2125. In addition, the Arizona Attorney General has published an Identity Theft Repair Kit.

If you decide that you need an individual attorney you can look to either the resources available through the organizations list on this website, or contact the Maricopa County Lawyer Referral Line, the Pima County Law Referral Line or the State Bar of Arizona Find a Lawyer Website to see if a consumer law attorney can assist you.
