Prospect, KY (October 31, 2001) - Victims Assistance of America, Inc (VAA)
-- After working as a financial consultant for almost seven years, Martha Steimel has announced her affiliation with the Victims Assistance of America, Inc (VAA). With over 1700 clients and thirty five million in managed assets Ms Steimel sent a letter to announce her new affiliation.
She pointed out a few other brokers that she was aware of that had started non-profit organizations and still worked full-time as brokers. She hoped to take time off for the set-up phase of the organization and assured her clients that she would be back with them shortly.
She has a mailing list of over 5000 that she grew up with, went to school with, were friends of her family, or that she worked with sometime in the last 30 years. They all received her letter along with city officials including the aldermen, judges, and other government officials. This was the first time that she openly admitted to having had a ten year long problem.
Ms Steimel has 12 years experience in collections and finance, 7 as a financial consultant, 10 in identity theft issues, and almost 20 in direct management. She has opened several businesses of her own and was actually a new property coordinator (helping with the set-up) for another company also. She looks at her past and states that it doesnt matter what part of the financial line you land on. Shes worked with people in every financial condition. With that background, who better to help victims of financial crime? She marvels at the fact that she never set out to do this. She didnt ask for 10 years experience in identity theft issues. But, who better to head up a national non-profit to fight the nations #1 crime?
