Somebody stole my credit card information and used it to buy $500 worth of shoes!
I don't really know... They can find my information from anywhere without me knowing!
Oh no!! How did they even get access to that information?
There are many different ways they could've gotten my card information.
That's tough... What are the different types of identity theft???
One of the easiest ways is through opening mail. An unlocked mailbox can be easily opened.
Some types of identity theft are account fraud, mail theft; which is what happened to me, and 3 of the highest personal things you need that people can steal are Social Security Number, bank/ credit card statements, and card information. You need all of these to buy the things you need and to get jobs and basically have your own identity and stay alive, well, and out of legal troubles.
Oh wow. That's terrible!! the people who take these things for their own benefit are scrubs!
The two neighbors take a walk into town as they talk about identity theft.
Well first, you should try to think about all the ways somebody could've taken what they did and all the ways you can stop it from happening again. Of course, you should call the police. Especially when you think you have a good idea of who did it.
That's good information to know just in case it ever happens!
Do you know what to do if identity theft occurs?
No, what should I do???
The two go back to their homes so the little girl can go home.
Thank you so much for giving me the important lesson in identity theft and what to do if it ever happens to me!! I really appreciate it!!
No problem kid!! I can help you anytime you need it!!
