Identity theft is a price we are paying for putting so much
information on the Internet. There are credit bureau services to protect you from theft. Crooks are trying to steal the identities of young children. You can freeze your (oryour child‟s) credit information.
The three big credit bureaus are Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. You may request they not give information to any company that you are not already doing business with.
But there is another way to rob consumers. Go after their children. Children do not have credit cards or outstanding loans. So what do thieves do?
When they are able to get the social security number of a baby, thieves can add a date of birth and a name. This creates a false identity with a clean credit report. Thieves can then open credit cards and borrow money. The parents do not know. The identify theft might not be discovered for years.
When the child becomes a young adult and applies for credit or a student loan, he or she may be rejected because of “his” or “her” poor credit history.
Some states are doing something about this. They tell parents to have a credit report created for the child and then freeze it.

A low-cost and free telephone program is available from the federal government. it is called the Lifeline program.
More than 15 million families are using the program. Cell phones were included in the program in 2005. kisi kisi bahasa inggris
Low-income families get discounts on their phone bills. The first 250 minutes and 250 text messages are free. This makes it possible for many to have phone service.
Georgia and other states say there is widespread abuse by some participants in the Lifeline program. State officials charge many homes are getting more than one Lifeline phone. Some poor people are no different than some non-poor. If the system is not regulated, why not get two or three phones?
The program does not do much checking of participants. Georgia wants toimpose a $5 a month charge for the basic service. This can cause a problem for poor people. They need phones but may not be able to afford them.
Opponents of the $5 fee say if a family can only afford the free phone, they will be hurt by the $5 monthly charge.
The telephone industry is a strong supporter of the Lifeline program. They think today‟s poor people are the working people of tomorrow. They think it is a good idea to get them as customers now.

A woman in Oklahoma wanted to see how easy it would be to get a phone. She waited in line at a tent to see if the vendor would give her a free phone even though she does not qualify she did.
“Anybody can get them. They say it‟s a lifeline... they‟re for needy people. I‟m notneedy and I went up and I got one with no lD no proof of income, nothing,” She said
