HandFF Radio Perfect storm brews for ID theft
WASHINGTON (4/3/09)--One of the guests on Sunday’s H&FF Radio show warns of dangerous data breaches yet to come and how that translates to a perfect storm brewing for an upsurge in identity theft cases. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT 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. The Credit Union National Association (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,” with Adam Levin, founder, Credit.com and former director of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Scottsdale, Ariz.; * “MatchSavings.org,” with Janette Klaehn, vice president, communications, World Council of Credit Unions, Madison, Wis.; and * "Your Questions Answered": What’s in the stimulus package for you; 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.
