Prospect, KY (May 20, 2002) - Victims Assistance of America, Inc (VAA)
-- VAA is now finished with the tedious set-up phases. Core personnel are in place waiting to hear that funding is available for their salaries so that they can get working on the mission of Identity Theft.
If you know of anyone who funds this type of national organization, please contact us and let us know what we need to supply at our end. Most organizations have some type of filing system that we need to adhere to.
If you are a foundation or corporate sponsor, feel free to download a press kit from the site. If you need further information please feel free to contact us. We have had problems with our mail, phone, and receipt of e-mails since news has gotten out what it is we are working on. If you dont hear from us within 24 hours of contacting us please be persistent! One of the first things we will need to do as funding comes in is to secure our phone lines etc against identity theft issues ourselves. This is the nations #1 crime you should have figured wed have a problem. Please help us get over this part of the hump!
If you are a book writer/movie packager, John Grishams agent wanted this story a few years back. Ms Steimel was a single parent with her boys still at home. As a victim, you fear acceleration of the problem should you speak of it so she would not for fear for her children. Now that they are all out of the house (and older), not only does she not fear speaking about it, shed like to sell the story to help fund the national organization. The agent who contacted her has since died. She would rather see it go out at a true-life suspense. If you know of a producer who should see this please pass it on. Thank you.
