When Axton Betz-Hamilton had her identity stolen, and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent in her name, she naturally turned to the one person she believed could offer her advice and consolation. Her mother. She had her identity stolen once too.

But Axton Betz-Hamilton discovered the woman she turned to for support was the woman who had taken her identity. Now Betz- Hamilton tries to educate other people about how to protect their identities.
