Update: this category has been updated from “SCAMS” to
“SCAMS and THEFT ALERTS”

Scams has been a notable topic here in the past, It is still very important. However, the topic has been updated as THIEVE are becoming increasing ly more creative in breaking into your home and your car.

SCAMS
The best action to take whenever you encounter something which sounds “too good to be true or too good to pass up” is to pass on it. If it is a phone call, hang up. Reject the offer. Leave it alone for now.

Be very skeptical about anyone asking you to do something with any device which you own, including the telephone.

Though my usual strategy if I want to get involved with the caller is to ask for their phone number, so I can phone them back. Today,  fraudsters are becoming increasingly more sophisticated.

Safeguard yourself and avoid all potential risk, thank the caller and hang up.

AUTO CONTENTS THEFT
Again, thieves are getting bolder and more devious. It is more and more challenging to thwart them. Be more aware when getting into you car. Develop good auto habits: give the rear passenger area a quick glance before getting in right away; when shopping, put parcels into the truck, out of sight; put your auto into the garage at night.
