The Bipartisan Congressional Task Force to Combat Identity Theft and Fraud is a group of dedicated legislators working towards commonsense solutions to protect all Americans from hackers, scammers, thieves and fraudsters. There is no quick fix to protecting ourselves from scammers and identity theft. However, this bipartisan task force seeks to examine the scope of fraud and how best to address it with a thorough and thoughtful approach. We are committed to fighting these criminals with solutions to increase personal security for all Americans and increase the penalties and punishments for scammers and ruthless thieves. Through our bipartisan task force’s efforts we can fight for meaningful solutions.
