The last thing you probably worry about when refueling your car on a winter day is theft of your credit card and personal information. Unfortunately, scam artists and thieves are very comfortable using the regular routine of getting gas, renting a movie at an automated machine and getting cash from an ATM to steal your money and identity. Not only do these thieves compromise Iowans’ financial well-being, they also compromise Iowans’ trust in their transactions and institutions, as well as each other.

Here at home in Iowa, I make it my mission to meet with and listen to folks in all of the 16 counties of the Third Congressional District every month.

As cofounder of the Bipartisan Congressional Task Force to Combat Identity Theft and Fraud, folks often ask me about the many different ways scammers and fraudsters prey on folks in our Iowa communities.

Thanksgiving is a holiday rooted in American tradition, engrained in hundreds of years of being grateful for all we have. In looking forward to Thanksgiving this year, I am reminded of how truly thankful I am to live in this great nation, and grateful for those who serve to protect it.
