Senator Richard Blumenthal and his colleagues in the tri-state area are calling on the Federal Trade Commission and the FCC to investigate an imposter scam targeting claimants of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.  In Connecticut, 97 survivors and responders have received compensation through the fund.  Blumenthal says the scam adds to the already significant emotional and financial toll on 9/11 survivors and responders.  The scammer is demanding a range of personal information, including Social Security and bank account numbers, promising to use such information to file claims.  It's not known whether the scam is aimed at bilking money from the compensation fund or to be used for identity theft.
