Identity Theft Involving Children’s Social Security Numbers

08 Aug Identity Theft Involving Children’s Social Security Numbers

Why would a family member steal a child’s social security number and obtain credit in the child’s name? More importantly, what kind of company would give credit to a child after a reasonable inquiry? Desperation is the only rational explanation that I can think of, and that is on both the person stealing the identity and the organization handing out the credit. Our firm represents people who have been victimized by someone stealing an identity, more commonly known as identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission has a website devoted to identity theft.

Identity theft is a huge problem in the United States. Now, we not only have to worry about our own identities being stolen, we also have to worry about the identities of our childrent being stolen as well. For a different perspective on this issue see Michael Doan’s article on Bankruptcy Law Network, dealing with disclosure of social security numbers in the Bankrutpcy Court. Mr. Doan also wrote a Two Part Article about how bankruptcy can result in Identity Theft, Part I and Part II.So, what does a person do??? Try to protect your identity as much as you can. Debt collection harassment lawyer Jay S. Fleischman posted a video which demonstrates how fast Identity Theft can wreck your credit. Attorney Chip Parker wrote about protecting yourself from Identity Theft on Bankruptcy Law Network.
