Economic Stimulus Check Initiative


From Margie Tann iSekurity
Source: Wachovia




iSekurity wants you to be aware of the Economic Stimulus Check initiative. Emails and phone calls are being made by fraudsters in attempt to collect your personal and financial information. This fraud is taking multiple forms and you need to be aware. They all centered around alleged functions of the United States Department of the Treasury ... but, are driven by a singular criminal goal - to steal your money and your identity.




Please be aware of the following scams that have been circulating related to the Economic Stimulus Check initiative:


- Rebate Phone Call: In this scam, consumers receive a phone call from someone identifying themselves as an IRS employee. The caller tells the targeted victim that they are eligible for a sizable rebate for filing their taxes early. The caller then states that they need the customer's bank account information in order to directly deposit the rebate. If the customer refuses, they are told that they cannot receive the rebate.


- Refund Email Scam: Customer receives an email, which falsely claims to come from the IRS, informing the recipient that he or she is eligible for a tax refund for a specific amount, and instructs the recipient to click on a link in the e-mail to access a refund claim form.


- Audit Email Scam: Customer receives an email notifying the recipient that his or her tax return will be audited. The customer either clicks on a link or contacts a phone number included in the email. This is the first scam the IRS is aware of that uses this tactic to get the victim to respond.


- Tax Law Change Email Scam: The email is addressed to businesses, accountants and "Treasury" managers. It instructs them to download information on tax law changes by clicking on a series of links to publications on businesses, estate taxes, excise taxes, exempt organizations and IRAs and other retirement plans.


- Paper Check Phone Call Scam: In a recently documented telephone scam, a caller claims to be an IRS employee who is calling because the IRS sent a check to the customer which has not yet been negotiated. The caller states that because the check has not been cashed, the IRS wants to verify the individual's bank account number.


- Better Business Bureau Rebate Scams: In addition to the above rebate scams, IRS officials are also warning businesses of emails that appear to be complaints forwarded to them by the Better Business Bureau. Businesses receiving such questionable e-mails should contact the local BBB directly and not respond to the email.

Yet another new twist on an old scam: 'VISHING'

From Margie Tann iSekurity
Source: BBB of Northwest Ohio


There's a new scam that's popped up recently that's being referred to as "vishing." Like the "phishing" scams that are now familiar to most Internet users, vishing is designed to trick consumers into giving out account numbers. But, instead of using e-mail, vishing uses telephone calls generated from automated random-dialers.

Here's how it works: someone calls and says that your credit card has been used illegally. The caller gives you an '800' number to call and "verify" the theft of your card information and to "confirm" your account number. If you are contacted, then provided any such number by the caller - DO NOT CALL IT! [Always use ONLY the official contact numbers printed on the back of your Credit, Debit, Health Plan Cards, etc.]. Of course, the '800' you would be given by these scammers will be answered by an accomplice, who will then use your account information fraudulently.

What you need to know:

- These phone calls are becoming more common

- The caller may be very persuasive or intimidating

- It is not rude to hang up if you think you are being scammed

- You can not rely on Caller ID. It's easy for the scammers to "spoof" their
Caller I.D. information

New Marketing Product - Creative Memories

In my Creative Memories business, many of may you know that I make creative and unique marketing materials, as well as doing things with your photos.  I do so much more than just "scrapbooking"! We have a new product out that are called "Photo Panels" and they can be used in many ways.  I like to describe them as a "glassless" frame.  They also come in metal now which are amazing.

These would be perfect on a table when you are representing your company at an expo with just your name and/or business logo on it. Some ideas for using photo panels include: your business tag line, something by a display at your place of business, a personalized award or gift for someone special, a center piece at an event such as a wedding, graduation party, birthday party etc. I'm sure we can come up with so many ideas!
 





These are on sale beginning May 1 and I thought these could benefit you and would be a beautiful accompaniment to your current displays.  They will be 15% off beginning May 1 and the 5x7 size starts at $18.65.  I will be glad to design these for you FREE OF CHARGE just to try them out, you would only pay for the panel plus tax and shipping.  I only need your logo or photo and any text you would like on the panel.  (Please send files in a jpg or png format when emailing.)  I promise they will make your table or display "pop" especially the metal ones! They are very durable and not too bad with fingerprints either. I'm attaching a sample design to give you some ideas.

Please visit my website at www.mycmsite.com/mlhernandez. You will find them under the Photo books & gift tab.  You can make them yourself, too, using the predesigns on my website.  I have several sizes and would love to design some for YOU! The sale only lasts until the end of May, so let's start working on your project NOW!

Thanks for considering me and remember I would be glad to meet with you any time to discuss my creative and unique design services and products.  I appreciate you referring me to your friends that may need me as well & you know I only refer good people, too.  :)  

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

A word about Termites.. Lennys Pest Control

Drywood termites are dealt with by locating the kickout holes. From there one punctures the kickout-hole and injects the appropriate insecticide. After that the hole is resealed with caulk to ensure no escape for the termites.





Subterranean termites are largely avoided via education, detection and eliminating conditions conductive to termites, sometimes an infestation has already occurred. In this case there are available liquid termiticides which must be administered at the foundation of the structure of the building or home.


Before you decide on a treatment plan for termites, it is very important to determine the species you are dealing with. In the southern part of the United States, subterranean termites are the most common. Subterranean termites are the underground termite and travel in mud shelter tubes. They make up about 90% of the termite infestations in the United States. Subterranean termite species that are the most common are the Eastern subterranean termite, Arid Land subterranean termite and the western subterranean termite. Formosan termites are also a species of subterranean termite that are common in areas of Louisiana, Texas and you guessed it - Florida. Since you live more than 500 miles from the gulf coast, it is likely that your termites are subterranean.

Destination Info
The most famous resident of this central Florida city is Mickey Mouse, the cartoon creation of animated movie tycoon, Walt Disney, whose vision has turned Orlando, and the adjacent Lake Buena Vista and Kissimee areas, into the world's busiest, biggest and best-known concentrated tourist Mecca. Disney bought up land in the area with the aim of establishing his dream theme park back in the 1960s. He died before the first park, the Magic Kingdom, officially opened in 1971, but his legacy has taken root and is still growing. Currently the Disney empire in Orlando includes four theme parks, dozens of smaller attractions, thousands of hotel rooms and holiday apartments, hundreds of restaurants and snack bars and even two cruise ships. It is not only the Disney dazzle that draws visitors to Orlando. There are other attractions here too, like Universal Studios and Sea World, all adding to the maelstrom of thrills and pleasure palaces that this city is now renowned for.
