8-7-2012 National:

Some say a child is a blank slate, yet to be written upon. To parents this means a long life of opportunity. Unfortunately it means the same to identity thieves. As the Child Identity Theft Report 2012 shows, the epidemic of child identity theft revealed last year is continuing to grow at a rapid pace.

The new data in this report seems to confirm that the younger the child, the more likely they will be a victim of identity theft. That’s because this gives the thief more time to go undetected while they use the child’s identity.

In fact, the percentage of victims under the age of five doubled this year compared to last year’s report.
