La Crescenta, CA (PRWEB) January 4, 2006
Identity Theft and Wrongful Credit Damage Expert and Attorney Robert F. Brennan will appear as Guest Commentator on KUCI's "Privacy Piracy" Radio Program, hosted by Nationally Recognized Identity Theft Expert and Author Mari Frank. The show will feature current news and insights into consumer privacy debacles including identity theft, Choicepoint and the continuing problems with false and inaccurate credit reporting by the major banks and credit bureaus.
Identity theft and wrongful credit report damage is a plague for consumers. According to the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin, there are up to 700,000 identity thefts in the United States each year. Most victims only learn that their identity has been stolen more than 12 months after the initial theft. Identity theft victims report that they spend an average of 175 hours to clear up the many financial and legal issues arising from the theft of their identity.
Wrongful credit damage also plagues American consumers to a point where their futures are at stake. In a recent study by US Public Interest Research Group, over half of consumer credit reports had errors and fully 25% had errors serious enough to cause credit denials.
With statistics like these, consumers are well advised not to trust the banking, finance and credit industries any more to look after consumer interests. Consumers must be educated to take matters into their own hands, and must also know their legal rights regarding their credit reports.
Identity theft and wrongful credit report damage attorney and expert Robert F. Brennan of Brennan, Wiener & Associates in La Crescenta will appear as a guest commentator on Privacy Piracy, a radio program on KUCI radio hosted by nationally recognized expert and author on identity theft Mari Frank. The program will air live on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 at 5 to 6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Irvine, Ca. KUCI also has nationwide streaming audio at http://www.kuci.org.
