One of my good friends just got some mail for her daughter. She was sent a credit card application from Master Card... SIX DAYS after her birth!

How do you think that information gets out so fast? It appears to be routine to send babies credit card applications. Does it even make any sense?

Yes the most probable cause of wrong addressing combined with coincidence.

Sadly, people do steal the identity of minors. You should tell them that they should look into this further, just to be safe. My son is 2 and I haven't had any mail sent to him at all.

Thanks for the post. Morals and captilism don't go hand in hand. Something is wrong when the need for money outweighs the common good. No system is infallible; it is pertinent to continue the discussion of who is allowing the credit card companies to market in such a way and how is it that many have becomes os conditioned as to accpet them?

I don't know about babies, but many companies and services that you sign up for will sale your information. AOL would sale email addresses when it was still in the ISP business, and online email and other services do this quite often. If it isn't stated plainly in the TOS or Privacy Policy, assume that they actively do it.

The only organizations that had the name of the baby were the hospital and the social security office.
