A person commits a felony when he or she knowingly takes, purchases, manufactures, records, possesses, or uses any identifying information of another person or entity without consent, with the intent to obtain or use the person's or entity's identity for any unlawful purpose, to cause loss to a person or entity, or with the intent to obtain or continue employment. A person also commits a felony if, when hiring an employee, he or she knowingly:
• Accepts any personal identifying information of another person from an individual and knows that the individual is not the actual person identified by that information; and
• Uses that identity information for the purpose of determining whether the individual who presented that identity information has the legal right or authorization under federal law to work in the United States (AZ Rev. Stat. Sec. 13-2008).
