Prospect, KY (February 18, 2003) - Victims Assistance of America, Inc (VAA)
-- announces the National Community Action Project! This project has, as its goal, the placement of fake and stolen ID detection equipment in all airports, police cruisers, and places of business where goods and services can be obtained using fake or stolen identification. This is an updated message to all U.S. companies, individuals, grantmakers, foundations, government agencies and non-profit organizations.
Please read our letter of September 9th, 2002 if you have not already done so: (In the PressReleases/NewsSection of our web site) Http://www.victimsassistanceofamerica.org.
VAA announced on September 6th, 2002 that we would initiate a project to donate fake/stolen ID detection equipment to the nation1s airports. After viewing a broadcast on CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, which stated that nothing had changed since 9/11/01 by way of fake or stolen ID detection, VAA decided to step up to the plate. The broadcast stressed the fact that terrorists, criminals, and ID thefters can board U.S. planes and travel anywhere in the world as long as they use a fake or stolen ID.
When the nation was then shocked at how easily two snipers could attack innocent citizens in the VA/DC/MD area of the U.S., VAA attempted to place fake ID detection equipment into law enforcement vehicles for use at roadblocks and other traffic stops.
Because of this situation, and also because of VAAs keen awareness of perpetrators all over the country who use our victim's IDs, we added the nations police cruisers to our National Airport Project and made this equipment available to you through VAA.
As part of this national project we will urge Americans to buy this equipment for their businesses and help VAA in our attempt to flush out these identity thefters (who add criminal records and billions of dollars of bad debt to innocent citizens like you and me) in a very short time. Lets help to clean up the nations economy by fighting ID Theft..
Please bring this announcement to the attention of your companies, your employers, your civic clubs, and the places where you live and shop, and ask them all to participate with VAA in this worthwhile project. If your company or foundation would like to purchase the equipment needed for your states airports or your states police cruisers (or both) we will name your company as that states sponsor and attach that company name to all machines sponsored in that state by you as a reminder to all that you supported this project in your state and for your police and/or airports.
HUMAN RESOURCE DEPARTMENTS, EMPLOYERS, EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES
The #1 method of stealing an identity today is by having an insider (usually an employee) download the employee database or the client database to use or to sell to professional perpetrators of the crime. Because of this, VAA will be urging all human resource departments and employers across the country to purchase this equipment through VAA to actively help VAA flush out these people.
Note: Two airports (one in NY and one in DC) checked their employees and found that 124 had secured their jobs by using a fake or stolen ID. Many of these bogus employees were hiding a criminal record attached to their true name. If we find 124 employees with fake IDs in two places of employment, just how many do you think we would we find all across the nation? The security of individuals and the security of the nation is at risk. VAA believes we must find the criminals and terrorists among us. And we need your help.
LIQUOR STORES, GROCERY STORES, ALL BUSINESSES THAT CARD MINORS
Using fake or stolen identification is against the law. We at VAA want to urge establishments who card people for age verification (the machines in this national project do age verification and a whole lot more) to join with us by purchasing equipment through VAA. When a card reads as a fake or stolen ID, call the police, help us make arrests. Please purchase this equipment (not just for age verification) through VAA and join with our National Community Action Project! Think of this: If you have only nine employees and you find just one who is hiding a criminal record, wont you feel that the equipment has paid for itself? If you then can continue using the equipment for your day to day age verifications and you are able to also uncover several fake IDs, you are truly helping the nation at a time that the nation really needs you!
MORTGAGE COMPANIES, ATTORNEYS, FINANCE DEPARTMENTS, PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANIES
Identity thefters buy houses and cars in your name and mine. They rent apartments, order utilities and live off of our good name. They do this by the millions. Because of this we are urging closing attorneys, mortgage companies, AND finance departments of car dealerships to all purchase this equipment during this project through VAA and call the police when you detect a fake or stolen ID. Dont do business with these people! Help us help the United States at a time that its very important to flush out these people. These perpetrators have reasons for using a fake or stolen ID and none of those reasons are good. Call in Law Enforcement and Have them arrested.
JAILS, PRISONS, JUVENILE FACILITIES, ALL PLACES OF INCARCERATION
We have a 15 year old victim who innocently went to get his drivers permit only to find he had an eight year criminal record. Someone started using this childs name and social every time they were thrown into jail or prison. They started when the victim was 7 YEARS OLD. Now this 15 year old has to go to court every time his name is on the docket to prove his innocence or else hell be in contempt of court. (It is his name you know.) Whats sad is that the perpetrator has no obligation to show up at all to shoulder his responsibilities. This low-life put that off on a 7 year old and the childs still dealing with it 8 years later. They still have not caught his perpetrator because the jails and prisons also have no way of detecting a fake or a stolen ID. THIS CHILD IS AN 8 YEAR VICTIM and what does he have to look forward to if they have no way to identify his perpetrator? It makes no difference how good he is hes got a criminal record anyway! Do you want this for our nations infants and children? Please help us!
We are urging all jails and prisons and any agency who deals in any way with criminals and felons to please purchase this equipment through VAA. Dont let these people put criminal records on our family's good names and in our family's history. And please make them quit using our childrens names!
TEMP FIRMS, EMPLOYERS OF IN-HOME SERVICES
Attn: Temp Firms and anyone who hires personnel to enter people's homes. Please card everyone before you send them out on a job, every time you send them out on a job. You could be very instrumental in helping not only identity theft issues in the U.S., but also in flushing out criminals and terrorists. Please purchase this equipment and use it daily. Use this equipment in unison with using law enforcement to back it up.
Attn: Retailers: You sell to identity thefters every day. Why not take a huge chunk out of identity theft for us and buy this equipment from VAA for your stores nationally? Quit being the victim that we know you to be. Appropriate funding for this now. Our project is coming soon!
We want to stop these perpetrators where they work, shop, entertain, and live. If you deal in any of these areas, we ask you to buy this equipment and help our National Project. Consider sponsoring your state for the police and/or airports if you can. Start planning now!
How did this become the nation1s #1 and fastest growing crime? Why do we let these perpetrators continue to prey on our families and our children? Why do we allow them to put their criminal records on our names instead of their own? We dont even know their real names! Who are these people anyway? They pay no taxes. They are parasites, living off the system, without contributing to it.
We have victims with no social security retirement income because these perpetrators have wiped it dry. We have one victim who has sixty different perpetrators using his name and credit! We have a 21 year old who had someone purchase a home in her name, when SHE WAS ONLY 3 YEARS OLD! She is now 21 and has seventy accounts with bad debt on her credit report and also a house! She cant get a home of her own as she had saved and planned for. THIS CHILD IS A 17 YEAR VICTIM.
Its time for us to stand up as a nation and let these perpetrators of our Identitys know that we're "mad as hell, and are not going to take this any more!" Identity thieves are invading our privacy, stomping on our rights, destroying our personal financial health, and stealing our childrens good name and credit before they even get started in life. Please join with us in our aggressive fight against identity theft. We at VAA have not yet advertised nor officially opened our doors, yet we are already helping over 1,500 victims per day! Weve been told to expect 23,000 per week. This is a Herculean task for any agency. That is why, in addition to helping victims clean up the mess left in the wake of these perpetrators, we also have decided to adopt a very preventative approach.
Thus, our idea for the "National Community Action Project," was born. This project addresses not only the use of fake ID's at the nations airports, and implements the use of detection equipment in police cruisers, but attacks the attacker as he or she attempts to profit from their fake ID's at the point of sale: where they live, shop, work and entertain.
We want America to begin to be AWARE of VAAs National Community Action Project. It's your community too!
So: BE AWARE and BE PREPARED. When VAA launches this program nationally, you will already know and have funding in place to sponsor fake drivers license detection devices in your states airports or police cruisers (or both) by sending your donation to VAA and labeled to be used for National Community Action Project.
BE AWARE and BE PREPARED. When VAA launches this program nationally, you will already know all about it, have funding in place and purchase this equipment through VAA for your human resource departments, your secure buildings, your finance departments, jails, prisons, car dealerships, apartment buildings and every retail counter.
We at VAA hope to see this equipment in any place that you might find an Identity Thefter shopping, working, entertaining and living. Lets take back our Identity U.S.A.!We need volunteers to help us with this project all over the country. (We are giving volunteers $5 for every machine that he or she gets placed.)
