Fall Clothes For Kids: 21 Fashionable & Fun-Loving Styles 09/12/2021

Fall Clothes For Kids: 21 Fashionable & Fun-Loving Styles

Wow. Great ideas!

Fall Clothes For Kids: 21 Fashionable & Fun-Loving Styles Feel that chill in the air? It's fall, y'all! Freshen up your little ones' wardrobe with these fall clothes for kids you're sure to FALL in love with!

[09/10/21]   According to a report put out by the Federal Trade Commission phone scammers were most successful by targeting the 60-69 age group in 2020. This age group has reported fraud to the tune of $290 million. Those between the ages of 30 and 59 reported fraud in the amount of $733 million. So it is not just our older generation that is being targeted.

According to Hartford, the 3 top phone scams are:

1. Government Imposter. Their goal is to make you think you did something wrong and scare you. We never want a call from the IRS right? Be cautious and always ask for a number for them to call back.

2. Grandparent scam. They create a frantic situation like an emergency, accident, arrest, or robbery and then they hand the phone to who they try to pass off is a doctor or attorney or police officer with the goal of getting you to send money. Be careful. Again, ask for a number so you can call them back.

3. Robo-call scam. They are attempting to record your name by asking a question of who you are, confirming a amazon order or asking you to clear up a problem. Their real goal is to get you to talk so they can record your voice to be used later without your knowledge or to get you to give them more and more personal info they may be gathering on you. Just hang up and don't say a word.

What are some best practices?

If a caller asks for your name ask them for their name, their phone number, and the company they are with first.

Be careful of local numbers you don't know. They could be using spoofing software to make it look like a trustworthy phone number.

If you answer the phone and a recording asks you to hit a button to stop getting calls just hang up. Following this instruction can put you on lists as a potential future target.

Do not answer any questions from Robo-calls.

Set a password for your voice mail if you do not have this set up already. Hackers can gain access to your voicemails just by knowing your phone number if you do not have it password protected.

I hope this ideas help keep you safe out there. In this world there are more scammers and hackers than we have ever seen in recorded history. Be diligent and protect yourself where-ever you can.

Thank you!
