MONGOMERY, Ala.. – Identity thieves should watch out- Alabama is arming its residents with the tools they need to better recognize scams. Recently the Credit Union Coalition of Alabama teamed up with the Alabama Attorney General Troy King to create a Public Service Announcement on identity theft. The PSA led to the Alabama legislature passing the first Alabama identity theft bill and on March 15, 2006, Governor Bob Riley signed the Identity Theft Bill. Attorney General Troy King visited each of the Coalition credit unions and presented the PSA to the media and the public. “The Credit Union Coalition of Alabama is proud to work with the Attorney General’s office to combat identity theft in the state of Alabama. We want all consumers to be well informed on the ways to protect their good name,” said Coalition Chairman and Redstone CEO Gerald Toland. “Each member credit union of the Coalition has valuable tips on their Web sites for more information and we encourage consumers to visit any Alabama credit union to find more of the useful tools to help protect them from identity theft.” The Credit Union Coalition of Alabama is made up of the six largest credit unions in Alabama – Alabama Telco CU, America’s First FCU, APCO CU, Army Aviation Center FCU, MAX FCU, and Redstone FCU.
