You probably don't want to think about identity theft on vacation, but certain aspects of summer fun can leave you susceptible to scams. 
    Consumer Reports recommends traveling with a minimum number of documents and other items with sensitive personal information.
   For example, leave social security cards and extra credit cards at home.
    Also, make bank and credit card companies aware of travel plans so they can better monitor fraud.
    The Federal Trade Commission is out with a warning for hotel guests which includes calls purportedly from the front desk seeking verification of a credit card number.
     When a hotel really has an issue with a credit card, they'll ask guests to come to the desk to deal with it face-to-face.
      Another pitfall? Fake wi-fi networks. Confirm the hotel's authorized network at check-in to avoid handing information over to scammers.
      Identity theft isn't limited to adults. Children's social security numbers can be a target because they provide a clean slate for scammers to open credit accounts - and because most parents don't suspect young ones could be victims of fraud.
      When a child attends summer camp or another summer program, the FTC urges parents to find out where personal information is stored, how those records are used, and who has access.
