Protecting your identity: Watch your child's ID as well

Imagine this: Your 15-year-old goes to apply for his first after-school job...and finds out he has a number of black marks for credit fraud marring his record. And you were worried about his report card?

According to some sources, 500,000 children are victims of identity theft every year. Minors comprise the fastest-growing segment of identity theft victims.

Great. Just one more thing for a parent to fret over.
