What? Don't care about your privacy?
You know that your financial records could be stolen tomorrow. You know that your personal information could be exposed tonight. So why havent you taken just one minute to tell Congress to do something about it?

Election Day is less than a month away. That means your lawmakers are listening to you -- dont waste this opportunity!

Click here to send a message -- Americans are fed up with ID theft and weak financial privacy laws!
Tell them you demand:

* the power to put a security freeze on your credit files, preventing thieves from opening new accounts in your good name
* the right to know if your private information has been breached
* tighter security for all your personal data

If we can get 50,000 people to send this message to Congress by Election Day, November 7, our lawmakers will see that they must do more than talk about financial security laws -- they must act, and act quickly. More than 33,000 messages have been sent so far, but we need our voice to be even louder.

Whether its due to negligent credit card companies, banks, retailers, or even government agencies, private financial information from millions of Americans is lost or stolen every year. But common sense reforms will protect us all.

Our work and yours has already started to pay off. Consumers Unions Financial Privacy Now campaign has been on the ground pushing for tough new state policies, and twenty-five states have now passed laws that let us take control of our private information.

But some lawmakers in Congress want to eliminate those laws and replace them with weaker protections! While they promise national security on the campaign trail--proposals awaiting their vote could actually make you less secure. Can we count on you to let them know that the American people demand real security, and common sense reforms that fix this very real problem?

Value your privacy. Tell Congress to protect it.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
