The Importance of Training and Practicing with your Pepper Spray

Filed under: Self Defense Infomation — peppereyes @ 13:31

I’ve said in several of my logs, that when you take some type of Martial Arts class, the instructors will make you practice 012612_1935_DoesPepperS1.jpgand, practice and practice the moves, over and over until they become second nature. When you decide to carry pepper spray or some type of self-defense product you made a first wise choice. However, having a pepper spray product is only half the solution. KNOWING HOW TO USE IT, is also necessary to your self-defense plan.

Imagine someone coming at you, and you start fumbling to get to your pepper spray, and then try to fire it, but since you never trained with it  you weren’t aware that you have to slide the trigger to the unlock position. Unfortunately since it took you too long, you were attacked and became another crime victim.

It has been our recommendation that when you buy pepper spray that you purchase two. One to use , and one unit to practice with.  Just like how Barney Fife used to practice he quick draw, you should experiment and develop practice drills regardless of how and where you can carry your pepper spray. If you carry it in your purse, keep in mind that you want to retain possession of it even if your purse is grabbed and yanked away. Therefore, it should be positioned and clipped to your purse in such a way that when you hold it was you are riding public transportation, walking, or just standing, any downward or sideways yank of the purse will leave the spray in your hand.

Whenever you’re on foot, such as walking to your car, leaving a restaurant, going to your residence,  shopping – or anytime you are by yourself-you should have your pepper spray in your hand and ready to use Whether you normally carry they spray in your purse, on your belt, or attacked to your key-chain makes no difference. When you are alone or in a potentially risky situation, have it in your hands. The time frame that it takes to recognizing a threat and getting ready to deal with it can be mere seconds.

This is also the reason, it is very important to mentally rehearse exactly what to do in case you have to use your pepper spray. What will you do is you are being followed? What will you do if someone gets in the elevator with you that mean you harm?  What if someone tries to force their way into your residence? Practice against an imaginary assailant until you are extremely comfortable with your ability to use it quickly and effectively.  This could make the difference between your being the next crime victim, or the next victorious survivor.

If you can find a defense spray training class…take it.

Windows Support Scam Alert

Filed under: Self Defense Infomation — peppereyes @ 18:35

Twice Now I’ve received a phone call from some person with a foreign accent claiming to be from Windows Support and 020414_1627_BetterBusin1.jpgwanted to tell me that someone was trying to hack my computer.

OK…I’ve worked in IT for over 3 decades, and I know the following

  1. Microsoft does not monitor the computers that have windows installed.
  2. Windows comes installed with a firewall and a modicum of protection.
  3. Microsoft routinely updates itself.
  4. I have a firewall and anti-virus/malware software installed, that I keep updated and use on a scheduled basis.
  5. THIS IS A SCAM

Apparently a will known one.  Microsoft has information on it’s site that you can find by searching for Microsoft Tech Support Scam (http://www.microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx)

How many of you get those e-mails from financial institution saying there is something wrong with your account and they need you to click the link to Verify the information.  I’ve gotten one  that was 100511_1649_Whatyouneed1.jpgsuppose to be from Bank of America, and just recently from Chase that said the following:

Dear Chase OnlineSM Customer:

We’re writing to let you know that your account has been recently access from a different Ip location.You are required to verify your account to prevent Fraudulent activities.

 log on to <FRADULENT LINK>
Please don’t reply directly to this automatically-generated e-mail message.

Sincerely,

Online Banking Team

There is just one small problem…I don’t have an account with these institutions.  This is what is known as a phishing attack. The creators of these e-mail want to use fear to cause you to click on the link where one of two things can happen.

1) Mal-ware is loaded onto your computer that can steal info form your computer, or cause damage to your computer.

2) The creator wants to harvest information about you through the forms to steal your identity or access your account.

WHAT TO DO

1) DON’T Click the link…ever.

2) go to a fresh browser site and see if everything is OK with your account.  If you are not feeling OK, this is a good time to change your password.   Otherwise you are OK.

3) Delete the e-mail

I Almost Got Scammed

If you are a reader of this blog, you know that I write about how cleaver phishing scams are.  Well guess what I almost fell for one.  See I do have Paypal  accounts.  So I got this e-mail giving me a security warning about my account.  This is the typical ploy used my these scam artist used to use the fear factor to keep you from thinking.  So like an idiot I clicked the Click here.  No, I did hover over the  Chick Here button to see that it didn’t go to PayPal.com but instead went to http://papillomavirus.fr/conejo3

Screen1

This will take you to this screen

Screen2

This certainly looks like a PayPal login screen.  Again..if you don’t pay attention you will note the browser does not go to PayPal.com.  DO NOT  give them your user name and password, which I almost did. You don’t know if this informatin will the stored to access your paypal account later.  If you want to have fun, make up a fake login like I did to see what happens next.  I made the password the password the first 24 characters of PI.

It will think take you to the screen meant to get enough information to STEAL YOUR INFORMATION. These people are so clever that the site looks like it is processing your information So again, having fun I use information from fictional character from TV, just to see what happens next.

Screen3

To Continue…they now want Credit Card info.

Screen4

OK , I think I had enough fun.

So the moral of the lesson….PAY ATTENTION and Watch out for E-mail that is meant to scam you or help take your identity.

So what happens if you happen to think you logged in, and the user has your username and password.

  • Change your password. and make it a GOOD ONE
  • If the system has second-key Authentication, USE it.
  • Monitor your account.
