Go Direct Offers PSAs on ID Theft Scams
In 2005 Treasury created it Go Direct program to promote direct deposit of federal benefits checks. Using electronic delivery, the Go Direct campaign underscores, reduces the risk of identity theft and helps reduce stolen checks and forgeries, as well as decreases the cost to the government of dispersing the benefits. The Credit Union National Association is a national partner of Treasury's Go Direct program.
Treasury's new PSAs were developed in partnership with the Social Security Administration and Department of Veterans Affairs. The anti-fraud messages are directed at senior citizens but are applicable to any who might be easily persuaded to give out personal information to a scammer.
