Commentary from Dallas Single Mom:
In my career have I seen actual incidents of individuals involved in identity theft that have used the social security numbers for children and some of those children are their own children. I have seen this a lot with divorced parents. If you can be a step ahead in the game, then Project Klear can help parents protect the identities of their kids from being stolen.
Children are 35% more likely to become victims of identity theft than adults are, even in the safety of their parents’ homes. With cyber security and identity theft becoming more commonplace than ever before, many parents aren’t sure how to safeguard their children against these threats or even realize their children are at risk at all. It was also something that hit too close to home for Aaron Fuller, founder of Project Klear.
Fuller created Project Klear in 2003 after his niece had her identity stolen and her social security number used illegally. As a father of two, Fuller was motivated to come up with a solution to combat this threat and to ease parents’ worried minds across the country.
Families can protect their children using Project Klear starting from birth all the way to 21 years old. Project Klear uses their proprietary technology software, around the clock, to scan 12 personal identifiers of each child including birth date, social security number and other personal information to detect potential threats or attacks.
Having seen success in Southern California, where Fuller founded the company, Project Klear has chosen DFW as the first city in its nationwide launch. And to kick off the initiative, Project Klear is donating 10,000 free scans (a $70,000 value) to children all across the DFW area in an effort to protect 100,000 children in Texas by the end of 2016.
Project Klear’s services are available for $39 annually per individual (child) and $89 annually for a family of two children or more. Monthly memberships are also available for $7 per month per individual or $14 per month for a family of two children or more.
