I found out today that there is a site where you can submit questions asking our new President what he is going to do about issues, and if someone else has entered an issue, you can add your vote that you agree that this is an important issue.

Go to

http://change.gov/page/content/openforq ... s20081229/

On the far right there is are blue letters that say Sign In . . . fill out the info there, and then go back to the questions page and there is a search box. If you type check clearance into the seach box, you will find the question I posted, which is
Quote:
How can we reduce the amount of money being lost to overseas scams? Full disclosure of the true time period fpr check clearance to banking customers would help. Currently customers are told that checks are “clear” in 24 hours, but this is not true."
ScamVictimsUnited, Bloomington, MN


You can also seach the term scammers, and you will find some other people have entered similar questions and vote on those too.

Let's see if we can get a lot of votes for this cause!

You need to say on here, you would like to see reform for Reg CC, that would make the diclosures you speak of possible, it is always better to use the right vocabulary when discussing a problem.

The form only allows so much space, so I could not say all I wanted to. I could add another question asking if he will reform for Reg CC to help battle the enormous amount of counterfeit checks that are passing through the system. Do you think that would be better?

Much better, it points out the regulations that relate to the problem.

Here is another site where you can tell the government what topics you would like to see addressed. They have 5 or 6 issues to pick from, but after you get past that first part there is a section where you can enter your OWN items, and that is where I have asked for them to address the cyber crime/internet scam issues.
