Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 18, 2005
Glenn Ullmann, president of Ullmann Financial, today announces the release of his guide, "Safeguarding Your Identity In-Flight ManualÂ." The former Air Force pilot uses an in-flight check list as a model to:
- educate people on how someoneÂs identity can be stolen;
- identify ways to help prevent identity theft;
- and explain what victims need to do after a theft has occurred.
Ullmann, a professional speaker, recently made a presentation on the topic at the Seminar for Legal Professionals in Jacksonville, FL.
The Federal Trade Commission reports that 500,000 people a year are victims of identity theft. Over the past six months, companies such as data broker Nexis Lexis and DSW Shoe Warehouse have reported that intruders may have accessed personal details such as the names, addresses, Social Security, driver license and/or credit card numbers of thousands of people. Earlier this year, Bank of America reported lost computer data tapes containing personal information on 1.2 million federal employees.
Ullmann graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in Management with an emphasis in Finance. He flew on active duty for seven years, including missions during the Iran/Iraq War and three years as a flight instructor. While stationed in Oklahoma, he earned a Master's degree in International Affairs from the University of Oklahoma. After leaving the service in the 1992, Ullmann joined Smith Barney in Jacksonville. Subsequently, he opened and grew the Jacksonville office of a regional investment firm from two to thirty employees in five years and was responsible for more than $300 million in client assets. He established Ullmann Financial in 2002 and published his first book, "Landing a Smooth Retirement," last year.
Ullmann Financial Group manages more than $80 million in assets and works with more than 400 affluent households. Glenn Ullmann lectures throughout the country on the need for discipline, simplicity, optimism and professional advice to define and achieve lifelong goals.
