MilitaryRecordsLookup.com To Release Military History Scam Guide

MilitaryRecordsLookup.com To Release Military History Scam Guide












San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2014

MilitaryRecordsLookup.com is preparing an anti-scam guide about why and how people lie about their military histories, the company reported today.

“While our nation’s heroes should absolutely be recognized for their service, there are some less-than honest people out there who use fake military histories for their own game,” a MilitaryRecordsLookup.com spokesman said. “We believe that these scam artists should be stopped from disrespecting the armed forces.”

The company is compiling the guide at the request of customers, who were responding to a mention on the MilitaryRecordsLookup.com website regarding the fact that people do lie about their military service and the reasons they were discharged.

“Many people think that as long as they don’t see the term ‘court-martial,’ the person they’re checking out served with honor,” he said. “But because military jargon can be complicated and there are many different levels of service, it can be easy to become a victim of a scam when someone is not as forthcoming as they should be.”

The guide will include real-world definitions of medals and discharge status, he said. It will also detail all the ways people try to pull a scam on unsuspecting victims when it comes to false military histories.

“Whether it’s in the online dating world or trying to get a job, these scam artists rely on the ignorance of their victims,” he said. “But knowledge is power, and we are confident our guide will give our customers that power.”

About MilitaryRecordsLookup.com

MilitaryRecordsLookup.com is a public records database that specializes in providing military records to customers in the United States. Find out information such as discharge status, length of service, medals received, and more. Visit MilitaryRecordsLookup.com today to speak with a live representative, call 1-877-661-6437, or email Support(at)MilitaryRecordsLookup(dot)com with any questions or concerns.

Attorney at Consumer Litigation Associates, P.C., Comments on ?$9.84? Credit Card Scam and Steps to Take When You Suspect Fraud

Attorney at Consumer Litigation Associates, P.C., Comments on “$ 9.84” Credit Card Scam and Steps to Take When You Suspect Fraud











Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) March 14, 2014

Commenting on recent news reports revealing consumers nationwide are discovering unknown charges of $ 9.84 on their bank statements, Virginia credit card fraud attorney Matthew J. Erausquin of Consumer Litigation Associates, P.C., said consumers who notice any unusual charges should contact their credit card company or financial institution immediately. He said people who ignore even small charges could be vulnerable to bigger scams in the future.

CBS 6 (“BBB warns of $ 9.84 mystery charge on bank, credit card statements,” Jan. 29, 2014) and other media reported that nationwide concerns over credit fraud grew in mid-January after thousands of consumers noticed fraudulent charges on their credit card statements. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) on Jan. 24, 2014, issued a warning to consumers to report unknown charges of $ 9.84 to their financial institution immediately, according to CBS 6.

“Our firm has handled cases involving credit card fraud, and we tell clients that even small charges should not be ignored,” Erausquin said. “You might notice an unknown charge of just a few dollars and think that it’s not worth your time to contact your credit card company. But that would be a mistake. We know that many scammers will first charge a small amount to a consumer’s credit card to see if he or she will report the unknown charge. These scammers then access the account at a later date to take a larger amount.”

Erausquin said this common form of credit card fraud is typically employed by scammers because they believe many consumers will not notice a minor charge and credit companies won’t take action against a small charge.

According to CBS 6, fraud victims report that the unknown charge goes back to a generic website for “Customer Support” that is not the business’ website. Although the site promises to “refund 100% of your last payment” and provides phone and email contact information, consumers should contact their bank as a precaution, according to CBS 6.

Erausquin said consumers can take a few steps to protect against fraud. “It’s important for consumers to use caution when ordering online or over the phone,” he said. “If you believe your information has been compromised, report incorrect charges to your financial institution or credit card company immediately. The Fair Credit Billing Act provides you with powerful dispute rights.”

Erausquin said that in serious cases, victims of fraud or identity theft who may also notice fraudulent or otherwise incorrect items in their credit files should consider seeking the counsel of an attorney who has significant experience litigating under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.

PhoneLookup.us.com To Help People Avoid Charity Phone Scams












Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2014

PhoneLookup.us.com will soon launch an education guide designed to make sure that consumers can identify and avoid telephone charity scams, the company announced yesterday.

“One of the most enduring ripoffs in America is the charity phone scam,” a PhoneLookup.us.com spokesman said. “They continue because Americans believe in helping other people. But there are ways to avoid them, and we at PhoneLookup.us.com want to teach people the basics so they don’t let their good intentions rob them of their hard-earned money.”

The guide will take consumers step by step through how each and every variation of telephone charity scams work, he said. It will then show them simple things they can do to make sure that people only give money to real charity solicitors.

“The truth is that many charities do need to use telemarketing to raise funds,” he said. “So people shouldn’t automatically dismiss every person who calls up saying they represent a charity. Instead, they should discover the basic ways of making sure the person on the other end of the phone isn’t simply trying to line their own pockets.”

The guide will be published on the members’ area of their site, posted on their blog, and released through social media, he said.

“We want to do what we can to make telephone charity scams a thing of the past,” he said. “People should be able to give money to worthwhile organizations without worrying about getting ripped off.”

The Better Business Bureau Unveils the Senior Scene












Southfield, MI (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

The Better Business Bureau Serving Eastern Michigan (BBB) today announced the BBB Senior Scene – a program designed to keep seniors informed of scams and deceptive business practices in the marketplace and to empower them to act as community advocates against fraud.

Every year, scam artists bilk seniors out of billions of dollars because the senior demographic is generally considered more trusting and is perceived to be easier to persuade. Also, seniors may not be aware that they have fallen for a scam until it’s too late and may avoid telling anyone for fear of losing independence by appearing so vulnerable.

“Our goal is to inform seniors about the issues that impact them and to give them tools to deal with fraud and scams,” said Melanie Duquesnel, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau Serving Eastern Michigan. “Through our programs, seniors can learn about and connect to the resources of the Better Business Bureau and other agencies to become more informed in today’s marketplace.”

Attorney Ken Gross and his fellow shareholders at the Thav Gross Law Firm, have committed the company and The Financial Crisis Talk Radio & Television Show’s support as a premier sponsors of the BBB’s Senior Scene. Said Gross, “We are excited to join with and support the BBB in its efforts to thwart deceptive practices and unlawful actions that are directed at our most cherished citizens – our elders.”

Joining Thav Gross as premiere sponsors of the Senior Scene are Elder Living Construction,Levy Tax Professionals, and Right At Home In-Home Care & Assistance. Also sponsoring the program is EverDry Waterproofing of Southeastern Michigan and Medical Care Alert.

The Senior Scene Program includes:

Senior Scam Prevention Seminars

The BBB will host scam prevention seminars across Eastern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula for groups, organizations, senior centers and senior living facilities at no cost.

The BBB will also provide training for caregivers so that they can recognize the warning signs when their loved one is potentially becoming a victim of a scam and tips on what they can do to help.

Any group, organization or business interested in a training session can contact the BBB at events(at)emibbb(dot)org or 248-799-0326.

Participants will act as a consulting team for the BBB, providing information and insights into the scams and bad business practices that their peers are facing.

Financial Abuse of Elderly on the Rise, New Survey by NAPGCM Finds

Author: admin  //  Category: Uncategorized

Financial Abuse of Elderly on the Rise, New Survey by NAPGCM Finds











Survey Finding: Most Common Forms of Financial Elder Abuse


Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) March 12, 2014

Financial abuse and exploitation of older Americans is on the rise, according to a new survey released today by the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM). The survey, which also identified theft of money by family, friends, neighbors and caregivers as the most common types of abuse, comes on the heels of President Obama’s call last week for a new $ 25 million initiative to combat elder abuse as part of his budget.

NAPGCM surveyed 325 professional geriatric care managers nationwide about their experiences with financial abuse in their work with seniors. Major findings of the survey include:


    71 percent of the care managers reported that financial abuse and/or exploitation of the elderly is a growing problem in their communities.
     The top 5 types of financial abuse most commonly encountered are:
-Theft of money or property by family/friend/neighbor (79%)

-Theft of money or property by caretaker/ in-home care provider (75%)

-Investment/securities schemes through the mail or phone (52%)

-Home Repair scams (45%)

-Getting senior to sign a deed, will, power of attorney through deception (43%)

“Financial abuse of seniors is a growing problem. Families with older parents need to know the warning signs of this all too common and often hidden form of elder abuse,” said NAPGCM President, Emily Saltz. “Our survey shows that close oversight of vulnerable adults by family members or qualified professionals is crucial,” added Ms. Saltz.

According to the National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) 1 in 20 older adults indicated some form of perceived financial mistreatment occurring in the recent past. Most financial abuse goes undetected, as NAPSA estimates only 1 in 44 cases are reported. So it is crucial that family and loved ones know the warning signs. The NAPGCM survey asked professional geriatric care managers to identify the most reliable “red flags” that a senior might be the victim of financial abuse or exploitation. The top five red flags identified are:

    You and/or their bank notice unusual activity on bank accounts and/or credit cards that they can’t explain
    A new “best friend” has appeared who is becoming heavily involved in personal activities
    A friend, paid caregiver or trusted employee/vendor is isolating senior from others
    Another family member becomes secretive or defensive about parent’s finances
    Missing belongings or property are apparent

The survey, which was conducted March 4-8, 2014, also identified a number of emerging schemes professional care managers are seeing more frequently now in their communities, including:

    A new version of the “Jamaican lottery” scams in which someone posing as a new friend of the senior, often pretending to have romantic interests, tricks them into purchasing cash cards supposedly to send payment in order to receive their lottery “winnings.
    A rise in “caregivers” marrying seniors and then financially exploiting them.

Financial abuse of the elderly carries a major and direct cost to taxpayers as almost 1 in 10 financial abuse victims will turn to Medicaid as a direct result of their own monies being stolen from them. And President Obama’s budget plan released last week contains a new $ 25 million effort to reduce elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation. The initiative would fund grants to States to pilot a new abuse reporting system and improved research to understand and prevent elder abuse.

About NAPGCM

The National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM) was formed in 1985 to advance dignified care for older adults and their families. Geriatric Care Managers are professionals who have extensive training and experience working with older people, people with disabilities and families who need assistance with caregiving issues. They assist older adults who wish to remain in their homes, or can help families in the search for a suitable nursing home placement or extended care if the need occurs. The practice of geriatric care management and the role of care providers have captured a national spotlight, as generations of Baby Boomers age in the United States and abroad. For more information please visit http://www.caremanager.org. You can also find a listing of professional geriatric care managers in your community at the NAPGCM website: http://www.caremanager.org and click on “Find a Care Manager”.

Fake Malaysian Airline News Used as Scam Click Bait

Author: admin  //  Category: Uncategorized

Fake Malaysian Airline News Used as Scam Click Bait











Arlington, VA (PRWEB) April 01, 2014

The world is eager for news about the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. So eager, in fact, that scammers are taking advantage of our curiosity. Don’t fall for click bait teasers promoting exclusive footage of found passengers. It sounds like a sick April Fool’s joke, but it’s a real scam.

How the Scam Works:

You are on Facebook, and a post catches your attention. “Video of Malaysia MH370 Plane Found in Bermuda Triangle. Passengers alive,” it teases. Another popular version promises: “[NEWS FLASH] Missing Plane Has Been Found!”

You click the link, thinking it leads to a news site. Instead, you are taken to an unfamiliar, third party website. A pop up may appear prompting you to “update your video player.” But when you click “OK,” you aren’t getting a new software version. You are really downloading malware.

Like all scams, this has many variations. Another common version asks you to take a survey before viewing the video. In the worst case, sharing your information can open you up to identity theft. Even more likely, your information will end up getting sold to spammers.

This scam is also not to limited Facebook. Watch out for similar links posted on Twitter, through other social media or sent by email.

Tips to Protect Yourself From “Click Bait” Scams:

Take the following steps to protect yourself and others from scam links shared through email and social media:


Don’t take the bait. Stay away from promotions of “exclusive,” “shocking” or “sensational” footage. If it sounds too outlandish (Bermuda Triangle, really?) to be true, it is probably a scam.

Hover over a link to see its true destination. Before you click, mouse over the link to see where it will take you. Don’t click on links leading to unfamiliar websites.

Don’t trust your friends’ taste online. It might not actually be them “liking” or sharing scam links to photos. Their account may have been hacked. But it may also be clickjacking, a technique that scammers use to trick you into clicking something that you wouldn’t otherwise (especially the Facebook “Like” button).

On Facebook, report scam posts and other suspicious activity by following these instructions.

On Twitter, if another user is sending you links to malware or other spam, report it to Twitter by following these instructions.

Top Tips to Help Seniors Avoid Scams – Tip Sheet by AlarmSystemReport.com

Top Tips to Help Seniors Avoid Scams – Tip Sheet by AlarmSystemReport.com












Naples, Florida (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

The American population continues to age, and more scammers are finding ways to target senior adults. The scams that target the elderly range, and while they come in many different forms, there are some universal steps that seniors and their families can take to help them avoid being targeted by a scam.

The security and safety professionals at http://www.alarmsystemreport.com, a site that provides information to help consumers find the best alarm system for home use, have created a valuable list of tips to help seniors avoid scams.

1.    Don’t have checks mailed to a home address. Seniors often receive checks from various institutions, such as the federal government, but scammers can steal these checks from the mail. It’s best to instead have checks directly deposited into bank accounts, which is offered by most organizations, including the federal government the Department of Veterans Affairs.

2.    Seniors should sign up for the “Do Not Call” registry, which can help in the prevention of telemarketing scams.

3.    Before taking advantage of any offer that arrives by mail or email, seniors or their caregivers should carefully read the fine print. If an offer seems “too good to be true” it probably is. Examples of scams involving direct mail include notifications saying the person has won a cruise or a prize of some type.

4.    Many scammers take advantage of seniors by selling fraudulent Medicare discount cards. Before purchasing this type of card, Medicare recipients should contact Medicare directly to obtain a list of official companies that are eligible to sell these cards. Seniors should also note that these cards are not sold door-to-door or over the phone.

5.    Door-to-door scams are a common way to target seniors. For example, individuals will pose as employees of a home alarm system company and offer an unbeatable deal on alarm systems, at which point seniors sign long-term, and often expensive contracts. Senior should either avoid answering the door unless they know who is on the other side, or should avoid making any commitments until they’ve thoroughly read over the contract being offered.

6.    Seniors shouldn’t provide their personal or financial information to anyone unless they’re sure it’s legitimate. This includes over the phone, or via email.

7.    If something is offered for free, there should never be a cost associated with it, such as taxes. This violates federal law. For example, many seniors are offered “free” medical monitoring devices, and then their insurance is charged, and scammers are able to obtain their Medicare information in the process.
