Some good advice... If you don't agree send us an email.
1. The next time you order checks have only your
initials (instead of first name) and last name put on
them. If someone takes your checkbook they will not
know if you sign your checks with just your initials
or your first name but your bank will know how you
sign your checks.
2. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit
card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account number
on the "For" line. Instead, just put the last four
numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the
number and anyone who might be handling your check as
it passes through all the check processing channels
won't have access to it.
3. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of
your home phone. If you have a PO Box use that instead
of your home address. If you do not have a PO Box, use
your work address. Never have your SS# printed on your
checks. (DUH!) You can add it if it is necessary. But
if you have it printed, anyone can get it.
4. Place the contents of your wallet on a photocopy
machine, do both sides of each license, credit card,
etc. You will know what you had in your wallet and all
of the account numbers and phone numbers to call and
cancel. Keep the photocopy in a safe place. I also
carry a photocopy of my passport when I travel either
here or abroad. We've all heard horror stories about
fraud that's committed on us in stealing a name,
address, Social Security number, credit cards, etc.
Unfortunately I, an attorney, have firsthand knowledge
because my wallet was stolen last month. Within a
week, the thieve(s) ordered an expensive monthly cell
phone package, applied for a VISA credit card, had a
credit line approved to buy a Gateway computer,
received a PIN number from DMV to change my driving
record information online, and more.
But here's some critical information to limit the
damage in case this happens to you or someone you
1. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards
immediately. But the key is having the toll free
numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom
to call. Keep those where you can find them.
2. File a police report immediately in the
jurisdiction where it was stolen, this proves to
credit providers you were diligent, and is a first
step toward an investigation (if there ever is one).
But here's what is perhaps most important: (I never
even thought to do this).
3. Call the three national credit reporting
immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and
Social Security number. I had never heard of doing
that until advised by a bank that called to tell me an
application for credit was made over the Internet in
my name. The alert means any company that checks your
credit knows your information was stolen and they have
to contact you by phone to authorize new credit.
By the time I was advised to do this, almost two weeks
after the theft, all the damage had been done.
There are records of all the credit checks initiated
thieves' purchases, none of which I knew about before
placing the alert. Since then, no additional damage
has been done, and the thieves threw my wallet away
this weekend (someone turned it in). It seems to have
stopped them in their tracks.
The numbers are:
Experian (formerly TRW): 1-888-397-3742
Trans Union: 1-800-680-7289
Social Security Administration (fraud line):
We got this from a friend.
This information is worth reading. By understanding how the
VISA & Mastercard Telephone Credit Card Scam works, you'll
be better prepared to protect yourself. Thanks to Dr. Pat Cloney
for passing this on. Those con artists get more creative every
My husband was called on Wednesday from "VISA", and I was
called on Thursday from "MasterCard". The scam works like this:
Person calling says, "this is , and I'm calling from the
Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is
12460. Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase
pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA
card which was issued by bank. Did you purchase an
Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing
company based in Arizona?"
When you say "No", the caller continues with, "Then we will
be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have
been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just
under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before
your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your
address), is that correct?"
You say "yes". The caller continues... "I will be starting a
Fraud investigation. If you have any questions, you should
call the 1-800 number listed on the back of your card (1-800-VISA)
and ask for Security. You will need to refer to this Control #"
The caller then gives you a 6 digit number. "Do you need me to
read it again?"
Here's the IMPORTANT part on how the scam works. The caller
then says, "he needs to verify you are in possession of your card".
He'll ask you to "turn your card over and look for some numbers.
There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are your card number, the next 3
are the 'Security Numbers' that verify you are in possession of the
card. These are the numbers you use to make Internet purchases
to prove you have the card. Read me the 3 numbers". After you
tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say ,"That is correct. I just
needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and
that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?"
After you say No, the caller then Thanks you and states, "Don't
hesitate to call back if you do", and hangs up.
You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you
the card number. But after we were called on Wednesday, we called
back within 20 minutes to ask a question. Are we glad we did! The
REAL VISA Security Department told us it was a scam and in the last
15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 was charge on on our card.
Long story made short, we made a real fraud report and closed
the VISA card, and they are reissuing us a new number. What the
scammers wants is the 3-digit PIN number on the back of the card.
Don't give it to them. Instead, tell them you'll call VISA or
card direct. The real VISA told us that they will never ask for
anything on the card as they already know the information since
they issued the card! If you give the scammers your 3 Digit PIN
Number, you think you're receiving a credit. However, by the time
you get your statement, you'll see charges for purchases you didn't
make, and by then it's almost to late and/or harder to actually
file a fraud report.
What makes this more remarkable is that on Thursday, I got a
call from a "Jason Richardson of MasterCard" with a word-for-word
repeat of the VISA scam. This time I didn't let him finish. I
We filed a police report, as instructed by VISA. The police said
they are taking several of these reports daily! They also urged us to
tell everybody we know that this scam is happening.
Please pass this on to all your friends. By informing each other,
we protect each other. Thank-You.
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.
Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke
victim may suffer brain
damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three
Ask the individual to smile.
Ask him or her to raise both arms.
Ask the person to speak a simple sentence.
If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1
immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could
identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems,
researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions.
They presented their conclusions at the AMERICAN STROKE
ASSOCIATON's annual meeting in February 2004. Widespread use of this
test could result in prompt diagnosis and
treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this link sends it to 10
people, you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
