Identity theft is among the most egregious non-violent crimes which can be committed against someone. This occurs when someone decides to take your personal information without your specified permission or knowledge. In reality, this offense is more than a minor irritation. It's an all-out assault on your finances and credit history and it can take a considerable of time if you are not cautious, to restore both. Regrettably, even children are not safe from this despicable act, therefore it might be wise to every now and then check to see whether your child has a credit report within their name.
