STOP MAIL FISHING: BECOME AN ORIGINAL COSPONSOR OF THE “KEEP MAIL SAFE ACT”

June 27, 2019

Mail fishing, a growing mail theft crime in which thieves “fish” mail out of blue collection boxes, has resulted in many incidents of identity theft and bank fraud. Criminals use a contraption as simple as a string connected to a sticky substance to “fish”
out envelopes from these mailboxes, then open the letters to steal people’s personal information such as bank, credit card, and Social Security numbers. Last year alone, there were 3,000 incidents of mail fishing in New York City. These criminals also engage
in check washing to rewrite the name of the payee and/or the amount. Many of my constituents became victims of bank fraud, some losing thousands of dollars, as a result of having their mail fished.

Protect Small Businesses from Legalized Loan Sharking: Cosponsor the Small Business Lending Fairness Act

June 27, 2019

Recent reports[1] have brought to light a predatory lending practice that has targeted our hard-working small businesses: abusive use of confessions of judgement. These legal instruments sometimes require, as
a condition of getting a loan or a merchant cash advance (MCA)[2], that the borrower waive the right to defend themselves if the lender chooses to bring a dispute to court. By requiring the borrower to accept any
and all liabilities and damages pertaining to the loan, it undermines and circumvents the entire judicial process.
