The media ... a force to be reckoned with.

So, in one week's time, I have been contacted by two separate media outlets: (3/28) Scott Zamost, a Sr. Producer from CNN Atlanta, and today I received a call and email from Tanya Arja, a reporter from Fox 13.

Mr. Zamost is collecting information for the follow-on story (CNN broke the initial piece at the national level), and Ms. Arja is also developing their package from the local perspective. I will say, that I did not focus my research skills on this subject until I was a victim of tax fraud - but the local reporting on the issue has been long-term and persistent. I feel foolish for not being better informed, although there is not much you can do to protect yourself from this crime!

Either way, both media sources have their benefits. I am more inclined to stick with a local news element in order to build the nexus of victims in Tampa Bay, and allow our voices to be heard collectively with other communities nationwide.
