In the age of modern technology, it is important to be wary of scams used to gain private information from one of your accounts or devices. This sensitive information can be used to take money from the victim without him or her even knowing.
There are several different ways someone can gain access to a person’s account or device.
Some of the more common ways are:
Sending malicious emails. A favorite tactic among scammers is to send an email that disguises itself as being from someone in the target’s contact list. The email will usually say something along the lines of “Hey, check this out” followed by a link. Upon clinking the link, the victim grants the virus access to the computer. The virus can then grab whatever it wants, and will also send itself to everyone on the victim’s contact list.
Sending malicious texts. The victim will receive a text message, making some claim that a balance is overdue on some account, and may request that the person open a link to a website to pay the balance. The text could also ask for account information to verify that the victim is who they claim to be. Upon doing so, the victim grants the scammer access to the account.
Phone scam. For phone scams, the scammer calls an unsuspecting person and claims to be a representative from some company or law enforcement agency. They will tell the intended victim that money is owed, and it needs to be paid right away or a warrant will be issued for the victim’s arrest. It is a common scare tactic. The idea is to get the victim so freaked out that they no longer think straight. If a person receives a call like this, they should hang up right away. If they are truly concerned that there may be an issue, contact the company or law enforcement agency that supposedly called. This ensures that the real company or agency is actually reached, not someone claiming to be from them.
The best thing to do in all of these cases, is to stop and think. You should never click on a link unless you are completely sure that you can trust the source of the link. The case of emails, check to see the actual email address that sent the message. You may find that even though it says it came from someone you know, it actually came from a random address.
If you are unsure if something came from a friend or not, simply ask the friend through some other means, not replying to the email or text that sent the questionable link. Your friend may have no idea what you are talking about, which tells you the message was a scam.
Another important note, is that no government or law enforcement agency will require people to pay fines or debts with money transfers or store bought cards. Scammers prefer these methods of payment since it is harder for the victim to get the money back once it is sent away.
Whenever you receive a message that seems strange, or a phone call that you can’t quite believe, question it. Take a step back and think your next move out carefully. It can save you a lot of trouble and headaches later on.
Saving money is an extremely good habit to have. Hopefully those savings will not need to be touched and can be put to things you are actually saving for like buying a home. However, when an emergency calls, you will at least have some money available. Here are some ways to save a little more money that individually are small, but collectively, can sum up to something quite large.
Dine out at restaurants less and cook dinner at home more. Think about this: a plate of pasta (good for 1 person) at a restaurant can cost $15-$20, average. But cooking a pound of pasta (good to feed 3-4 people) at home can cost you around $10.
Make grocery lists before going to the store by planning your meals. People who shop without a list tend to make more spontaneous purchases.
If you do not really watch television, or know that you can catch all your favorites online, cancel your TV service. Sign up for Netflix or Hulu instead.
Cancel your gym membership and workout at home or outdoors.
You know how you are already splitting your check into percentages: savings, needs, leisure? Take 1% or 2% more from your leisure and put it towards savings.
There are so many ways, big and small, that can help you save money. Trust us, it is a smart habit and though we hope you will never need it for emergencies, you will be glad it is there in case you do.

Starting June 9th, people age 18, 19, and 20, will no longer be able to purchase tobacco products in California. Currently, you have to be at least 18 years old to buy cigarettes, but this is a move towards lowering teen smoking, an act which we are all aware has serious health risks. The Institute of Medicine conducted a study that resulted in 90% of daily smokers admitting to have begun smoking before they were 18.
California is the second state, behind Hawaii, to raise the legal smoking age and we will not be surprised if other states follow.
Anyone who is caught selling tobacco products to individuals under the age of 21, after the law change, can be charged with a misdemeanor. They will have fines, can face jail time, and may lose their license to sell product.
If in the future, you need bail bond help because someone you know has been arrested for violating the new tobacco laws in California, our Downey Bail Bond Store team can help you out.
