Treasury iGo Directi another way to fight crime on National Night Out
WASHINGTON (7/12/10)--The U.S. Treasury's Go Direct direct deposit campaign is urging those that are taking part in the upcoming National Night Out to also promote financial safety by distributing Go Direct campaign and Direct Express fliers at neighborhood events. The National Night Out, which will take place on Aug. 3, brings communities and local law enforcement together to increase crime prevention awareness. Over 36 million people throughout the U.S., U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and U.S. military bases participated in 2009’s National Night Out, according to http://www.nationalnightout.org. The Treasury promotes direct deposit through its national Go Direct campaign, and is specifically backing Go Direct as one of many ways that senior citizens and other individuals can “protect their money from financial crimes such as check theft and fraud. The Go Direct campaign is making a number of materials available for distribution, including talking points, newsletter copy, powerpoint slides, and website text. The Treasury recently announced that all federal benefits that are filed on or after March 1, 2011 will be paid electronically via the Go Direct program.
