Hi,

I just want to confirm if this will be tagged as cyber identity theft. If someone used your name on a chat engine to send someone an information about the truth (third party relationship issue) and you did inform the person that the profile you are using is not you then deleted the account after. What charges will this person get if ever? That person did not use the account to get money or something else.

Your response is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

why not just use a completely fake name so that you will not have any criminal liability

The person used the name of the girlfriend of the guy involve. But after giving the information to the other guy, she deleted the account. What will happen to her?

Most likely nothing because it is very difficult to trace back an anonymous/fake account. Nevertheless, if the PNP or NBI are willing to find her, it can be done, and she can be prosecuted.
