I have posted about identity theft on my business blog, which can be found at http://4stateladylawyer.typepad.com/joplin_mo_business_blog/. This is not the usual credit card identity theft or fraud but medical identity and social security number theft or fraud. I suggest all parents read the post and the article listed therein as these two types of fraud are becoming more prevalent and they are involving children. There are steps listed in the post which a person can do to try to protect himself/herself or a child. I hope you find it helpful.
