is it legal to text someone and say you are someone that you are not
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes, any time that you impersonate a real person in writing (i.e., via text or online), you are potentially guilty of no fewer than five state and federal offenses, including several felonies. Impersonating someone in text messages is therefore a very bad idea.
