Child Identity Theft
Child identity theft occurs when individuals target children by using their Social Security number or other information for personal gain. Such examples include: obtaining government assistance, utilities, accessing loans or other services.
Apply the same precautionary measures when securing your child’s identity as you would your own. The internet is the quickest way for personal information to be misused. Teach your child not to reveal personal information to anyone.
