Wilhoite sets Identity Theft Meeting - Important

Reminder! This announcement was published in our local Herald Beacon on Thursday, March 13, 2008. Please attend. According to national data, identity theft has increased more than 600% since the year 2000. Concerns about your personal data and access to it by people you do not know is on the rise. Quoting from national data, Council Lady Vivian Wilhoite says, "As the fastest growing form of consumer fraud, personal credit ratings are at risk to identity fraud. Your reputation and credit are on the line, as are the security of your family members and business associates." She states that one of the most eye opening experiences was the December 2007 break-in at the Election Commission resulting in stolen laptop computers that stored voters' information. The best course is proactive prevention. At 6:30 pm on Thursday March 27, 2008, at the Hamilton United Methodist Church, 3105 Hamilton Church Road, Nashville, Tennessee, Mike Hassell, Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist, will provide a presentation on "How to Not Be a Victim of Identity Theft." Mr. Hassell will provide a wealth of information on ways to protect yourself; sharing with us the most simplest tips to providing tips on nationally known programs. Please attend this extremely informative presentation given by Mike Hassell, who is not only an identity theft expert but is also a District 29 neighbor and an excellent watch association volunteer. There will be an opportunity to sign-up for the Tennessee Do Not Call List. Please join us! For more information, please contact Vivian Wilhoite at www.vivian-29.blogspot.com or 589-2003.
