Saving Your Child From Identity Theft

Are you aware that people in this world are out to get your identity and utilize it for their own personal gain? Well, they are. There are several ways in which these thieves get your personal information.

To prove your identity, you must bring a driver’s license, and a birth certificate. If you have a passport this may also be used to prove your identity. Be aware that the card you want replaced will not be handed to you while you are at the office. The replacement social security card replacement will be mailed to the address that is on file. This is usually the same address that is used for your taxes.

Accounts Online – whenever your bank offers online services, you have to take advantage of this feature especially if it would allow you to view your accounts. You need to login periodically or check your account regularly so you can be sure that there are no unauthorized charges that have been made using your account. Do not write down or tell anyone your login information. Keep them simple and easily recalled.

Remember your rights social security card replacement under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. All information MUST be 100% accurate. If you attempt to dispute with the Credit Reporting Agencies, be very careful that you do not write frivolous letters. (means letters that don’t mean anything). If you have documentation to back up your claim or you have a copy of your credit report and you underline those items that you know are not accurate, you stand a very good chance of getting your credit straightened out.

Medicine is also another item women tend to carry in their purse. If a headache pops up you have what you need to help ease the pain. If you have an illness that requires daily medication, you will have access to it when the time comes to take it.

You may even choose to put an income tax refund, a bonus from work, or any other additional income towards the balance to help whittle it down even faster! Repeat this process and go down your list until you have all of your accounts completely paid off!

Tip: make sure to investigate any new friends your child adds to his address book. If it is someone he knows only online, you need to find out what you can about this person before any emailing takes place. Again, monitor your child’s email, to the point of reading any email before she does. You will not be popular, but you will feel safer. As your child gets to be about 16 or so and seems to be trustworthy, you can relax these rules a bit.

I am sure there are a lot more items women love to carry in their purses. These are just a few of the items that generally come to my mind about women and their purses.
