Family Secure Child Identity Theft–Help! My Child’s Identity Was Stolen

August 5th, 2009 - Comments Off

Not only are adults affected, but also children, including newborns, are susceptible to the crime of identity theft. The result of this crime can take an emotional and psychological toll on them just as it does for adults. Most of the time, the person committing this crime is a family member or somebody known to the family. Some criminals specifically focus on children because this crime can go undetected for a very long time thus allowing the culprit enough time to ruin the child’s credit. The theft may go unnoticed until your child opens up his first checking account or is denied an automobile loan. In some instances, the police can come knocking on your door seeking to arrest your child for a crime he never committed. Protecting the children from this type of crime is the sole responsibility of the parents or legal guardians.

Since then, analyzing handwriting has been used in a variety of criminal investigations for crimes in which documents were used. This type of analysis works to pinpoint a perpetrator when little other evidence of “who did it” exists.
