Pretending to be someone online you're not is going to cost you starting Saturday.
Along with the new year, California will implement a series of new laws Saturday, including one that criminalizes saying you are someone you're not online with "the objective of harming, intimidating, threatening or defrauding."
Punishment for an infraction, if caught, will be a fine up to $1,000 and possibly a year in jail. The law is based on California's ban on forging documents.
