Children Can Be Victims of Identity Theft


Denise Richardson of has posted an article about the problem of children being the victims of identity theft. Often, the theft isn’t discovered until years later when…

a young adult is denied a student loan, credit or employment, all because of a destroyed credit rating.

Stolen Social Security Numbers and birth certificates are available to be purchased with relative ease, and thieves are able to manipulate children’s identities to their advantage. The Social Security Administration doesn’t have a “check and balance” system yet that can put names, ages, and genders with Social Security Numbers.

If you, or your child, have been victims of identity theft, feel free to contact us.
