There are 2 individuals, Person A and Person B.

Let's say that A is hellbent on ruining B's life, but not in the way some/most people would think.

A has stolen pretty much all of B's personal information, (SS#, emails, texts, etc)

A also wants to make sure no one suspects him to be involved in the slightest.

How does he do this?

As a promoter/marketer, he knows that if he were to promote something in B's name, no one would ever think that someone else is doing it.

Instead, A fabricates content making it appear to come from B and purposefully spreads it around under the lie that B does not like to talk about his personal life and other lies to make it seem legitimate.

Basically, he is pretending to be B and is narrating his life and promoting things as if it were coming from him.

Let's say that he's created this whole false persona that he's gotten even B's family and friends to believe it.

An example would be spreading false content about B's friend and causing them to believe there are issues between them, when none existed in the first place.


Let's say all of this is true. B is living his life having knowing that he has never done anything to promote himself in any way, he has never written, spoken, etc about his life or his family/friends in any way.

But because of A, no one believes B and as a result, no one will help him because they think he is lying.

What kind of recourse or maximum punishment can be dealt to the perpetrator, if and when any/all evidence if found?

Let's say this is in the USA.
