I know that the info that these senators are talking about is mostly morgage fraud, but at least they are talking about the topic of fraud and wanting to do something about it! If we can get a hold of these senators, maybe we can also get them to address internet crime and scams.

Here are links with all of the info.

I have been working with some people here in Minnesota, and we are making some progress on scam fighting. There are currently some laws being proposed and if we get them to pass here in Minnesota we are hoping that other states will follow our lead.

This is where we need your help . . . we are being asked to send the authors of this bill letters or emails telling them why this bill is so important. Some suggested speaking points are

That you have been scammed
That you lost X amount (we want the authors to realize the extent of these crimes)
Thanking them for caring and taking the time to sponsor this bill
Hoping that it will be passed.

Here is a link to the text of the bill for you to read
https://www.revisor.mn.gov/revisor/page ... n=0&y=2011


Here are the names or the people we need to contact, and links to their sites with their contact info

Representative Joe Hoppe
http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/member ... p?id=10766

Representative Joe Atkins
http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/member ... p?id=10753

Senator Chris Gerlach
http://www.senate.mn/members/member_bio ... istrict=37

Senator Linda Scheid
http://www.senate.leg.state.mn.us/membe ... g_id=10589

Could you help me by not only contacting these people and telling them how much we need laws like this to protect people from scams and fraud, but also share this information with ANYONE that you know that might also be willing to contact the above people . . . share it on blogs, message boards, Facebook, Twitter . . . anywhere you can!

Thanks,
