Adults and children alike are not immune to escalating "synthetic identity fraud"  schemes. 

The vast amount of exposed PII, financial records, biometric data, online credentials, voter records, and photos provides a wealth of information for criminals to mix, match, and piece together to create synthetic IDs.   

Fraudsters can use their “new” identity to open a new bank account, open new lines of credit to establish credit history, and ultimately buy homes, cars, you name it! This type of fraud can go undetected for years.
