Get Ready for College (crime)!


College is a fun and exciting time and one of the best times you’ll ever have.  Really…IReady4College_22

loved college and after many decades thanks to social media I’m in touch will people I knew there.  A few years ago I met one of my freshmen professors.

While you’re busy learning new things to help you in your future career or finding new lifelong friends, there will be some you may know who will get a different education and experience unless they take steps to reduce having a negative experience.

Crimes that happen on college campuses include robbery, stalking, Sexual assault, rape, hate crimes, drugs, underage drinking, harassment and more.

If you went to college, or know someone who did… you can ask about these things. They DO happen!  They don’t have to happen to you!

Here Are a few things you can do!

  1. Become aware…simply paying attention can make a difference. Be aware of your surrounds, be aware of your gut feelings, just pay attention.
  2. Become knowledgeable -what things must you do to make yourself safer.  Many colleges and universities go to great lengths to provide FREE Resources of students to protect their property and well being.
  3. Do it. Knowing all of the above is great ..doing it is better.  It’s like the difference in knowing you should study for your classes, and actually doing it.  Many who fail to do it..don’t make it!

How to Spot Phishing E-mail!


I was looking in my Hotmail account today and saw this e-mail. It was obvious to me that

ComputerScam

Beware the mail in your in-box

it was fake, but you may not be sure when you get these type of e-mails.  These types of e-mail only purpose is to get your information.

  1. The first tell-tale sign is I don’t have a USAA account.
  2. Look at the email it ends in ‘.de’ which mean it came from Germany.
  3. Companies use their own company name in their e-mail. for example, if the e-mail came from ‘bankofamerica’, then the e-mail would come from bankofamerica.com
  4. It is addressed to DEAR CUSTOMER, not to me specifically.  A company doing business with me knows my name.  When my insurance company email’s me. It has my name.
  5. It creates a sense of urgency. One of the best ways to get customer’s information is to create a sense of urgency, that if you don’t ‘act now’ something bad will happen.
  6. They always want you to click their link.  If you remember what hover your mouse over a link it will show you in the bottom left side of your computer window..where the link is going.  Once again it’s not going to USAA..it’s going to Germany.

spam

What you can do

  1.  DELETE IT – and mark it as spam.
  2. If you do have an account at the institution this is from.  Go to your web browser and type in the URL of the company and log in.  DO NOT USE THE LINK IN THE E-MAIL.  and make sure all is OK with your account.

A New PayPal Scam ..


A few minutes ago I opened my e-mail and saw this notice that appeared to have come from PayPal.

scam

 

My first thought was …so what I don’t purchase from the EU anyway. My Second thought was this is obviously a new phishing scam.

How can I tell it’s a SCAM.
It starts with Dear,    <NO NAME> …Paypal knows my name.

Even though it instructs me to log into my PayPal account, it conveniently provided a link for me. However, my reader knows how to check if a link is valid.  Simply hover your mouse pointer over the link at look at what appears in the lower left corner of the screen. The link is not PayPal. So obviously they want to get my PayPal credentials..

What Should I Do?

  1. DELETE THE E_MAIL!
  2. The best way to handle a situation like this is to visit the PayPal website directly. Don’t click a link in an email message, even if you’re certain it really did come from PayPal. If you go to the paypal.com website and sign in to your account, you’ll be able to see any issues that might be affecting your account.
  3. To secure your PayPal Account, Just head to the settings page on PayPal and click the notifications link. While you’re there, you should enable two-factor authentication if you haven’t.

A Few Tips To Help You Stay Safe


  • If someone knocks on the door that you were not expecting or are not comfortable stalkers10n-1-webtalking to, do not answer the door. Make sure they know you are still home and that it is not an empty house, so they don’t break in, however, tell them to leave and that if they don’t, you will call the police. There are lots of products on the market to allow you to see who is there, without opening your door, including fish-eye peepholes, to cameras.
  • Have clear areas, exterior lights and trimmed bushes around your house so that no one can hide outside.
  • Pay attention while walking in parking lots and out in public and try not to carry lots of things in your hands. This can make you an easy target.
  • Before you walk back to your car in public, have your keys and pepper spray out and ready, This way you aren’t making yourself an easy target as you search for them in your purse or pockets.
  • Appear confident and make eye contact with people in public as much as possible. People are less likely to attack you if it appears you will fight back.
  • Keep texting or using social media to a minimum when walking in public, multitasking can inhibit you from being aware of your surroundings.
  • Save the non-emergency police dispatch numbers in your  phone contacts where it is easily accessible.
  • If there is an emergency, call 911.
