A 4 year old named Kevin Barnaby Jr. is the victim of a new SCAM - being pulled by baby's fathers ACROSS AMERICA.
Kevin (who is known as KJ) is in serious FINANCIAL TROUBLE. He has two Capital One credit card accounts, is $941 in debt and has a $2,911 federal tax lien put on his credit reports.
KJ’s estranged father stole the child's social security number and opened up the credit cards accounts. He racked up debts before KJ’s third birthday, according to a December lawsuit.
Here's how Buzzfeed News is reporting it:
KJ's mother, Trina Patterson, filed the suit in US District Court for the Southern District of New York; it alleges that three credit bureaus — Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax — violated fair credit reporting laws by distributing inaccurate credit information about KJ to creditors. Patterson also alleges the companies failed to ensure their credit reports’ accuracy and to investigate her disputes over the inaccurate information on KJ’s reports.
Patterson told BuzzFeed News the credit report showed the toddler’s father, Kevin Barnaby Sr., used the cards to buy his current wife an engagement ring. “It was hurtful,” she said. “I asked [him] to buy a car seat for [KJ] and [he] wouldn’t do it.”
Barnaby Sr., who was convicted of felony identity theft in July 2017, did not respond to a request for comment.
