MADISON, Wis.

The webinar, Scammed, Spammed and Stung: Protect Your Credit Union and Your Members from ID Theft Fraud, is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 1-2:30 p.m. CDT (2-3:30 p.m. EDT, 12-1:30 p.m. MDT, and 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. PDT). The webinar is sponsored by CUNA Strategic Services, CUNA, and three strategic alliance partners. Speakers will include:

According to the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), a sponsor of the PYIW, 45% of U.S. adults--roughly 101 million people--feel at most risk for identity theft when they make a purchase with a credit card that requires the card to be temporarily taken out of their sight. Only 21% of consumers said they were concerned about falling victim to ID theft when using their card in person. In 2007, roughly 8.4 million Americans reported ID theft. In 2008, the number increased 19% to 10 million victims, said Susan C. Keating, president/CEO of NFCC. Joining NFCC as full sponsor of PYIW is the Council of Better Business Bureaus. CUNA is one of the supporting PYIW coalition members. The webinar costs $99. For more information, use the link.
