Could you or someone in your family already be a victim of I.D. theft?
One of the most frightening aspects of identity theft is that victims and their families have little way of knowing the crime is taking place. This is because most people rarely keep tabs on their credit report or check to see if their children have a credit file.
For children and teens, this lack of awareness can be even more destructive. Since most parents and guardians don't consider the possibility that their child could have a credit file, the crime and resulting damage can go on for years.
In short, if you aren't routinely checking your credit report or your children's names for the presence of a credit file, you could already be a victim and not even know it. That is why it is vital to take immediate action to ensure your family is safe.
