Delaney To Host Identity Theft Workshop In Frederick

August 10th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Over 125 Marylanders attended an Identity Theft & Fraud Prevention Workshop hosted by Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) Tuesday evening at Frederick Community College. The workshop featured representatives from federal, state and local organizations offering their advice on how Marylanders can protect their sensitive financial and personal information and avoid being taken advantage of by scam artists.

“Millions of Americans are victims of identity theft and fraud each year, including thousands of Marylanders and that’s why we hosted this workshop,” said Congressman Delaney. “It’s important to spread the word about how families can protect their financial information and how to look out for common tactics used by scam artists. The last thing hard-working families in Frederick County need is to get ripped off.”

The workshop was the 23rd constituent services workshop Congressman Delaney has hosted this Congress. The summer Congressman Delaney launched his Consumer Protection and Community Investment Agenda, a package of bills to expand access to affordable financial tools for low-income Americans, reduce dependence on high-fee services, protect veterans from inaccurate credit ratings and encourage economic development in underserved communities.

Agencies and organizations taking part in the workshop included:

  • United States Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration
  • United States Postal Inspection Service
  • Office of the Maryland Attorney General
  • Office of the Comptroller of Maryland
  • Maryland Insurance Administration
  • Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office
  • TransUnion
