Saint Xavier University fraud expert to appear on “You and the Law”

National expert Prof. William Kresse discusses identity theft and credit fraud

news story imageChicago (Jan. 15, 2009) – Saint Xavier University Professor William Kresse will appear on an episode of You and the Law, produced by CBA Television Productions, Inc., a not-for-profit affiliate of the Chicago Bar Association. 

The episode will air on CAN-TV21 (Chicago Access Network Channel 21) in Chicago this coming Monday evening, Jan. 19, at 10 p.m.

Kresse took part in the episode “Credit Card Hacking” alongside fellow guest Assistant Attorney General Christine Nielsen and host Ruth Kaufman. 

He discussed the various ways consumers’ credit information can be stolen, what consumers can do if this happens, and measures consumers can take to prevent information theft. 

The discussion also included the specific case of credit card information theft from millions of TJ Maxx and Marshalls customers. 

You and the Law is a topical, panel-format talk show emphasizing the public service aspects of the law. The show explains issues, discusses the impact of public policy changes and court decisions, and stresses the role of lawyers and judges in making and influencing those decisions. The show is cablecast to more than 500,000 households throughout the Chicago area on cable channel 19, in three 12-week seasons per year. 

Kresse is the director and architect of the financial fraud examination and management graduate program at Saint Xavier University’s Graham School of Management in Chicago, currently the only classroom-based MBA program in financial fraud and identity theft in the country. 

The program combines elements of law enforcement, law, accounting and general business education. Saint Xavier recently began offering graduate classes in Financial Fraud Examination and Management in the Chicago Bar Association building in Chicago’s Loop. The U.S. Air Force and Chicago Police Department have both chosen the program to better train agents and officers in identity theft and financial and procurement fraud.
