Protect Your Child's Identity

Each year, more than 50,000 children in Florida become victims of identity theft, and more than $100 million is stolen from children whose identities have been compromised. Identity thieves target kids because they generally have clean credit histories, and years will pass before the crime is detected. It’s never too early to start protecting your child from identity theft.

Identity Theft/Fraud Alert

Recently the Detective Division has received multiple phone complaints from citizens
in reference to phone calls they have received from persons claiming to be collection
agency representatives. The “collections agent” claims to be representing a utility
company in another state where the citizen’s account is past due. The “collections
agent” will then ask the citizen to provide their social security number and birthday
over the phone and give out a fraud department phone number for that company. Do NOT
ever provide this information over the phone to persons whom you have not contacted
previously or do not know. If you have received a call like this, call the respective
company (if it exists) directly to verify a legitimate account in your name. If a
legitimate account does exists in your name and you think you have been a victim of
identity theft contact the local law enforcement agency in your jurisdiction and
file a report.
