Identity theft can happen to anyone, a child under the age of 5, an adult, even the dead. Of course the deceased do not have to deal with the problems their loved ones do! The longer the thief can prevent you, the victim, from learning of the fraudulent activity, the more the thief benefits. Meanwhile, harm to the victims continues to grow.
You might already be a victim.
The consequences for you and your family can be serious and you can spend years and thousands of dollars getting your identity back. You may not even know your identity has been stolen until it’s too late. You can be denied employment or turned down for a loan.
