S.C. Consumer Protection Code,
2013 Cumulative Supplement

Kathleen Goodpasture Smith

In 2013, the S.C. General Assembly considered a number of bills relating to identity theft as part of the fallout from the S.C. Department of Revenue security breach, which exposed electronic filing information of millions of S.C. taxpayers to foreign hackers. One bill passed relating to investigations of identity theft by local law enforcement. Additional appropriations enabled the Department of Consumer Affairs to set up a new identity theft unit for beefing up enforcement of Chapter 20 titled “Consumer Identity Theft Protection.” The 2013 Cumulative Supplement includes these changes and much more.
