There are many subjects I think are important for parents to address and educate themselves about, including child identity theft. The more I learn about the possibility, the more I realize the need for parents to take control of the situation and protect their children! Child identity theft is on the rise and so many people have gotten away with this heinous crime in the past, but now parents are fighting back and I think it is time we joined the fight, too. Did you know it can take months or even years to recover and can create an unbelievable amount of debt for your child? It happens all over the world and that is why I think reading Bankrupt At Birth by Joe Mason is a must for all parents and caregivers.
signs of child ID theft. Imagine finding out your child owes $50,000 at the age of 8, thanks to an unknown thief. Now imagine it taking over a decade to resolve. It's a scary scenario and that's why we should work to eliminate the possibility before something like this happens.
When I educate myself about a subject I want all the facts and I want them to be backed up with evidence, which is one of the reasons I enjoyed Bankrupt At Birth. The book not only provides eye-opening statistics, but also actual stories of child identity theft. Reading about children and parents who have been through this breaks my heart and makes the possibility of identity theft feel much more personal, real and more of a threat. Reading this book helped me realize how important it is to educate others on child identity theft and how we can do our part to protect our children. I would never want my children to go through what many others have experienced. I recommend Bankrupt At Birth to all parents because it is important to get the facts because the threat of identity theft really begins at birth.
