Do you think someone is using your child’s information to commit fraud?

Go to identitytheft.gov to begin. Then, select the “Child Identity Theft” option under the “Special Forms of Identity Theft” section.

A red flag to watch for is if your child has a credit report; they should not at an early age. The website will guide you on how to obtain a credit report through Experian, Trans Union and Equifax.

If your child does not have a credit file, experts recommend you start one and then freeze it.
