Talking Through Identity Theft: A Program for the Blind and Visually Impaired

On Wednesday, July 31, 2013 from 2-3 p.m., the Federal Trade Commission will present a webinar for people who are blind or visually impaired. In “Talking Through Identity Theft,” we will discuss the causes of identity theft and how to remedy the crime – focusing on financial, medical, government benefits, and child identity theft. What makes this webinar unique, though, is that we will talk through how people who are blind or visually impaired can get access to educational resources on identity theft. We’ll map out the consumer education resources on the FTC’s website, as well as how to file a complaint. We’ll also talk about our audio files, and how to find them online.

A principios de esta semana, más de 50 profesionales de servicios legales se reunieron con el personal de la FTC, USCIS, DOJ, CFTC, CFPB y de la SEC para hablar sobre las estafas contra la comunidad inmigrante – su presente y su futuro.

Los resultados del foro de medio día de duración fueron esclarecedores para todos nosotros. Nos enteramos acerca de todo tipo de estafas creativas dirigidas contra los inmigrantes – más información en un minuto. Pero igualmente importante, nos enteramos del arduo trabajo y las soluciones creativas que están emprendiendo los profesionales de los servicios legales para proteger a las comunidades de inmigrantes.
