Hi Purple Gurl!
It was on CNN the other day that they are trolling Facebook and using dead and alive children's info to get fake ID, and credit cards.
Kids before they are even teens have their credit trashed!
Which should not be right, since it is law one has to be 18 to buy!
I think the banks profit and let this go!
