Tis the season for scams. Protect yourself and your family.
With November soon approaching it's time you had that talk again with the young and old members of your family about scams. Most people are on their toes about scams coming from email and websites but it never hurts to preach a reminder around the holidays.
Remember that telephone and advertisement based scams are also on the rise around the holidays. Always be suspicious when people call claiming to be from an organization like a bank, credit card or even your power or gas company.
If you buy things from craigslist remember to limit transactions to merchandise for cash in person. Never get involved with pay first—goods later or any kind of shipping.
