DFI secretary talks to residents about identity crimes
An alarming 53 million Americans claimed to be victims of fraud and identity theft last year, racking up an annual bill of $570 million in Wisconsin alone.
In response, Gov. Jim Doyle has directed state officials to take action.
That action is both informational and local. State Department of Financial Institutions Cabinet Secretary Lorrie Keating Heinemann was at the Riverview Manor apartment complex in River Falls last Thursday to discuss the topic with residents.
