HandFF Radio raises identity theft warning
WASHINGTON (3/5/10)--Sunday's H&FF Radio program explores potential identity theft issues associated with predicted data breaches, explains how to help consumers living in poverty get ahead by matching their savings, and answers questions about the government's stimulus package and credit card repayment solutions. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. ET on the Radio America Network. The show also is carried on American Forces Radio Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network. CUNA and Radio America are podcasting Home & Family Finance through iTunes, Podcast Alley, Odeo, and other popular podcast library sites, as well as on Radio America and CUNA's websites. Sunday's show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:
* "Perfect Storm for Identity Theft Brewing: Worst Data Breach Yet to Come." Adam Levin, founder, Credit.com, and former director of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Scottsdale, Ariz., warns of anticipated dangerous data breaches and how they might translate to a surge in identity theft cases. * "MatchSavings.org." Janette Klaehn, former vice president, communications, World Council of Credit Unions, Madison, Wis., describes how the website provides more lasting value than a handout or a loan through savings accounts, where you match a first-time saver’s deposits for housing, micro-business, education, or health care. * "Your Questions Answered." Host Paul Berry covers what's in the government's stimulus package for individuals and credit card repayment solutions.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; Western Corporate FCU (WesCorp) and its member credit unions; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve our country worldwide.
