Help fight for your financial privacy

Help fight for your financial privacy

Shares

Hey, we got
a really good financial privacy bill
passed recently in
California, but a lot of banks of financial institutions make money
selling your personal information, and they want to preempt the bill on a
Federal level.

I've spoken with bank people about this, and they want to do the right
thing, but somehow their lobbyists have gotten out of control.

The financial privacy bill also helps protect you against identity theft,
since the sharing of your financial info easily compromises you.
Specifically, a lot of total strangers right now have access to your
private info – how much money you make, how much you owe and to whom, as
well as your Social Security number, address, etc, all of which makes it
very easy for them to use your identity themselves or sell it to someone
else.

It looks like this is coming up for a coupla votes in Congress really
soon, and you can help.

Please take a look at the good work the folks at Consumers' Union people
are doing at href=http://www.financialprivacynow.org/>
financial privacy now.

I'd really appreciate it.
