Kids Are Common Targets for Identity Theft

Because kids don’t have credit reports or financial histories, their identities are valuable “blank slates” for cybercriminals. Few families monitor their children’s personal information, so it’s easier for scammers to go undetected when using it to take out credit cards and loans. Many victims of child identity theft have no idea that their credit has been damaged until years later when they apply for student loans or jobs.
