4 Ways Your Child is Vulnerable to Identity Theft

Scary American made awareness video on Child identity theft by Good Money.  It's titled "5 Ways", but it's actually 4 ways for UK parents, we can ignore number 2 on Social Security numbers.

My recommendation is to educate and monitor your children/teenagers online activity, and teach them to secure their personal information digital footprint online.

5 Ways Your Child is Vulnerable to Identity Theft Online from Good Money by CreditScore.net on Vimeo.

According to the United States Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2010, 7% or “8.6 million households had at least one member age 12 or older who experienced one or more types of identity theft victimization.” But identity theft is not just reserved for tweens and adults. In this age of information, children are increasingly vulnerable to the same kinds of attacks that cripple credit scores and bust bank accounts. Check out this video to learn about five ways you could be exposing your child’s sensitive information to identity theft.

Nice post. some points are here. hold your child's important papers, encompassing birth certificate, passport and social security business business card locked up in a protected location. When a enterprise asks for a communal security number for your progeny, always inquire them why they need it. deny to give out your child's birth certificate or communal security number except wholeheartedly essential. The use of this number should only be official or professional with identity protection plan.

Good post!! Your information is very vital regarding the security of the children. I think that it is now becoming very necessary for the parents to have some precautionary measures for their child's safety. Hiring a professional security provider can help in this kind of issue.
