Has YOUR kid's data been stolen? More than 1 million US children were victims of identity theft or fraud in 2017, study finds

It seems that no one is too young to become a victim of identity fraud.

Over 1 million US children had their identities stolen in 2017, according to a new study released Tuesday by Javelin Strategy & Research.

Even more worrisome, two-thirds of child identity fraud victims are younger than eight years old.

The fraud resulted in more than $2.6 billion losses, with families paying a staggering $540 million in out-of-pocket costs because of the identity theft.
