Commissioner Tours Storm Ravaged Areas

     From the Staten Islander:
The Social Security Administration is warning that Social Security beneficiaries have recently been the intended targets of an identity theft scheme.
During a tour of the storm ravaged parts of the state Wednesday that began in Staten Island, the commissioner of the federal agency reminded borough residents to be extra vigilant.
"I urge all Staten Islanders to take precautions when asked for personal information," said Commissioner Michael J. Astrue. "You should never provide your Social Security number, bank account numbers, or other personal information unless you are extremely confident about the identity of the person to whom you are providing the information.
