Re: Victim of ID Theft - at age 7
My son, just 20, was a victim of ID theft last month. The fraud was initiated through phishing at his bank. The thieves cleaned out his checking and savings accounts. They also were able to secure 3 Discover cards and ran up a total of 30K in one month. Since he is a member of a branch of service the JAG was able to have his credit reports cleaned up in a matter of days. The bank made restitution within one day. ID theft is rampant.
