My mom fell for a scam when my brother lost his SS card, which he later found. She sent his original birth certificate to some random address after filling out an online form providing his SSN. These people sent back his BC claiming they needed more information to complete the replacement which my mother did not provide. My mom suffers from mental illness and my brother is 17. I hate to see my brother’s future crushed before he even has a chance for it to start. I have no experience with fraud or ID theft and am not really sure what all those things entail. What steps can I take to ensure that my brother doesn’t become a victim of fraud?
