Storyboard Text

  • Grandma Rose meets a nice man named Jack and he tells her that he can make sure her grandkids have a million dollars by next year at no expense to her.
  • Really?
  • Of course! I just need a few things...
  • Jack tells Grandma Rose what he needs, and she gives it to him.
  • No problem! My birthday is June 4th, 1950. My Social Security number is...
  • I just need your birth date, Social Security number, and your full name.
  • Jack thanks her, and tells her that her grandkids will have the money by next month.
  • Thank you, Rose! See you later!
  • Weeks later, Rose receives a letter saying that she has an outstanding balance on dozens of credit cards that she's never seen.
  • Oh, no! What do I do?
  • She calls the police and the Secret Service. They tell her she's become a victim of identity theft.
  • What?! How is this possible?!
  • Grandma Rose is a victim of identity theft because Jack tricked her into giving out important information. Never give out your Social Security number, birth date, or full name. Don't be like Rose. Be smart and remember to keep your personal information private!
