Coffee Talk 5-13-13

The last Hadassah Coffee Talk of the season was held on Monday, May 13, 2013 at the home of Julie Brook in Blue Ash. Guest speaker David Lichtenfeld spoke about how to protect oneself from identity theft and other scams. Tobe Snow is Coffee Talk Chair and Programming Vice President. After the program, guests enjoyed refreshments in Julie's kitchen.

David Lichtenfeld is a retired FBI Special Agent who served over 27 years. He has first-hand knowledge of identity thieves and the victims they leave behind. He shared stories about real-life situations, including telephone and internet scams. His number one advice: NEVER give your personal information (like birth date or Social Security number) to a stranger.

A native of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Lichtenfeld attended Gettysburg College on a football scholarship. After a stint in the army, he married, had three children (a son and two daughters) and worked as a claims adjuster for State Farm Insurance. He was looking for a unique way to help society, and in 1965 he became a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). After a productive and satisfying career of more than 27 years, he retired but continued working ten more years for the FBI under contract doing security investigations. He received the 1998 Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI Humanitarian award and in 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award by the Hamilton County Police Association. Since retiring, he has done security work for the Cincinnati Reds. Active in volunteer work since 1988, he has volunteered for Hospice of Cincinnati, Scarlet Oaks Vocational School, Cincinnati Association of the Blind and Visually Impaired, and the Center for Holocaust and Humanity.

Tobe Snow presented a beautiful Hadassah certificate in a glass frame to David as thanks for his entertaining and informative presentation. Julie Brook was awarded a Hadassah College cook book as thanks for hosting tonight's Coffee Talk.
