What is child identity theft?
Minors are an especially desirable target for identity theft as their Social Security numbers do not yet have any information associated with them. This allows a fraudster to establish fresh credit lines, buy homes, and obtain identification that is free of any records and allows them to operate without notice. A large study on the issue revealed that almost 10% of children are victims of some form of identity theft.
