  5. i don't know if it is the best idea to give so much personal information in one response, there are actually people that can create credit files on our young children..using a few bits of information, they can establish credit..or easily piece the missing information together for other reasons...it is pretty easy to figure out a date of birth if given the month and day

    as a victim of identity theft, i am probably overly cautious
