Child Identity Theft
EXECUTIVE
SUMMARY
In the cyber-centric world of the 21st Century,
parents have many risks and threats to ponder
as they attempt to provide a safe present and a
secure future for their children. Each day, a new
danger seems to capture the headlines, from
exposure to online predators to the cyber-bullying
by schoolmates. Meanwhile, those parents are
looking over their own shoulders, careful to guard
against the crime of identity theft, so that they
can continue to provide that safe present, and to
build that secure future. Well, it just got worse.
Because, as this report suggests, it is possible that
you could be quite effective at warding off online
predators and cyber-bullies, as well as proving
quite successful at guarding your own hard-
earned good credit, only to find that your child’s
identity has been violated, and your family’s
financial and emotional well-being threatened in
an almost inconceivable way.
What would you do if your child was in foreclosure
on a home in another state? Wouldn’t you want to
know if your child had run up a huge utility bill
across town?
These are not theoretical questions, these are real-
life questions that the parents and guardians of
children in this report have been forced to come
to grips with. In Child Identity Theft, you will find
a hard look at what child identity theft means,
including an analysis of over 4,000 incidents of
child identity theft, and the actual stories of several
victims. The report also lists recommendations for
preventative measures that should be taken by
both public and private sector institutions, as well
as protective steps for parents to take directly.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR
CHILD WAS IN FORECLOSURE
ON A HOME IN ANOTHER STATE?
