Rep. Susan Davis Recognizes Jay and Linda Foley for their Fight against ID Theft

San Diegans honored in Capitol ceremony

Washington – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) recognized San Diegans Jay and Linda Foley, founders of the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), for their fight against identity theft.  In a ceremony in the U.S. Capitol, the Foleys were presented with the Suzanne McDaniel Public Awareness Award by the Congressional Victims’ Rights Caucus.

“Far too many Americans live in fear of being victimized by identify theft,” said Davis.  “Jay and Linda and the ITRC have done much in the past decade to address those fears, and to work with both the news and web-based media to generate public awareness about identity theft crime prevention and victim assistance.  Their activism is unparalleled.  It has been a pleasure to work with them over the years on behalf of ID theft victims.”

The ITRC has made its name in developing victim assistance strategies that have made a profound difference in the lives of folks who fall prey to identity theft.  The ITRC works actively to raise awareness of identity theft through mailings, partnerships with local businesses, and social networking.  They additionally provide no-cost assistance to victims of identity theft, which has helped many people avoid financial ruin. 

Jay and Linda Foley and the Identity Theft Resource Center were nominated by Davis and Representative Brian Bilbray (CA-50).
