Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America and can occur in any neighborhood to anyone. Without realizing it, you can become a victim by simply using the internet, not reviewing your credit card statements, or by not disposing of financial records safely.
“Everyone may not be aware of scams that can empty a bank account, run up a credit card and ruin your finances,” says Councilman Jim King (D) 10. “That’s why we believe this important seminar will help fight back against an unknown criminal.”
On Tuesday, December 4, Councilman King and Our Mother of Sorrows will sponsor an educational seminar on credit and identity theft from 6:00 to 7:30pm. It will be held in the cafeteria of Our Mother of Sorrows at 770 Eastern Parkway.
The seminar will include information on how to protect your financial information and credit rating from individuals who commit fraud and know how to access this information electronically.
“This seminar will also show you how not paying attention to your financial records can open the door to problems that may take years to correct,” says King.
Among the panelists for the seminar:
- Jeff Barr, a loan executive and consultant who works in the financial arena dealing with both commercial and consumer credit matters.
- Bruce Gadansky, Vice President of Operations for the Better Business Bureau, is responsible for business investigations and community collaborations at state, local and federal levels.
For more information or to sign up for this seminar, contact Rob Holtzmann at Councilman King’s office at 574-1110.
