Who will think of the children?

Who will think of the children?

https://www.buzzfeed.com/leticiamiranda/what-happens-when-your-parent-steals-your-identity

 

"[C]hild identity theft is poorly documented and poorly policed. And while creditors and credit bureaus do try to help victims of identity theft clear their credit reports of errors after they’ve been defrauded, their systems are flawed in ways that make children particularly vulnerable targets."

Re: Who will think of the children?

My reaction after reading this is akin to Shepard Books comment about '...burning in a very special level of hell...'

 

Incredibly sad to think that parents will exploit their children for their own financial gain.

Re: Who will think of the children?

BuzzFeed is usually pretty lame when it comes to what they put out on the web, but this article was fairly well written. 

 

This is really sad; hopefully some legislation will pass in the future that will better protect children.


Yes, just one card - by design.
