Dangers of Identity Theft presentation at City Hall tonight

We just opened an email from Clerk of Council's office with an announcement about an extremely useful presentation for residents about identity theft:

WHEN: Tonight, October 25 at 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Council Chambers, 4645 Montgomery Road

WHAT: According to the FBI, identity theft is the fastest-growing white collar crime. From seniors to students to small businesses, almost any population can be targets of identity theft. Worse still, identity theft can be committed any number of ways, including mail, telephone and online schemes – which makes the crime that much harder to detect and prevent.

PRESENTERS: Commissioner Greg Hartmann, President of the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners, and Leslie Kish of Better Business Bureau
