Is it possible for my child be a victim of identity theft?

Q & A Main Article 3

Yes, if someone has stolen your child’s personal information, it’s possible for accounts to be opened in your child’s name. To determine whether this has happened, you can contact the three major credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion, Equifax) to see if your child has a file. Children won’t have a file with the credit bureaus unless they’re a victim of identity theft.
