Colorado Attorney General John Suthers is touring the state talking about fraud, privacy and identity theft. His last stop, in Pueblo, was met with something less than enthusiasm – in fact, he was met with nobody at all. The AG was targeting the elderly – the ones you would think would be the most vulnerable. According to Suthers, one-third of fraud victims are seniors.
Hat tip to ColoradoPols for picking this one up, and a bit of a smirk to them as well, for politicizing it. I don’t care who your candidate of choice is, and/or what they are promising. Not a one of them can stop this stuff – new laws, policing, etc. won’t put much of a dent in it. But, education and awareness will. And I’ll applaud Suthers for trying.
And to those sniveling about the poor turnout – you won’t be when someone empties your bank account.
