Senator Boxer: Protecting Californians from Identity Theft
Thursday, July 6, 2006
We expose ourselves to this risk almost every day, any time we use a credit card, provide a Social Security number, or withdraw money from an automatic teller machine.
How is it that we can continue using this personal data while staying safe from identity theft? I have some ideas for you on my Senate website at http://boxer.senate.gov/services/consumer/index.cfm
Here you will find my new consumer protection feature, which provides important information about how to protect yourself from identity theft along with tips about credit protection, predatory lending practices, do-not-call registries, and other helpful information. We will be updating this feature regularly, so I hope you will plan to visit it often.
You can also access this feature via my home page: www.boxer.senate.gov
