Phony Email Flight Confirmation You Didn’t Book

Phony Email Flight Confirmation You Didn’t Book

With summer here, many people are preparing for vacation trips. Some people will just drive across the state, others will be flying to new destinations. Vacations are, after all, a great way to take some time for oneself to rest and recuperate. After all, most jobs can be pretty stressful. Getting away for a little while can be very nice.

Unfortunately, not everyone can get away for a vacation. Whether its timing, or a money issue, there are all sorts of things that can keep a person at home during the summer. This means that some people will still be staying home this summer, and this means that people need to be wary of a new scam filling people inboxes.

Phony Ticket Confirmation

As stated before, summer is a travel heavy season. Lots of people are off on exciting adventures, and scammers are well aware of this fact. They aim to take advantage of a person booking a flight on an airline as a way to steal personal and financial information from people.

People have begun receiving emails that appear to be ticket purchase confirmations from large airlines. The problem is, many of these people never bought tickets from those airlines. So they click on the link presented to them in the email address, which takes them to an official looking website where they are asked to login with credit card information. If the person does this, they have just given their financial information over to a scammer.

Now, it is important to remember that official airline websites are still safe. The scammers have not hacked any websites or systems. They are simply sending mass emails to unsuspecting people in the hopes that the person replies or clicks on a link which takes them to the scammer’s own website.

Identifying This Scam

There are a few different ways to identify this scam:

  1. The email isn’t addressed to a specific person. This is due to the fact that these emails are sent en masse. This means that they are not specifically targeted to one person, and will not have a person’s name, which official confirmation emails usually do.
  2. The sender’s email address. This may take a little bit of research, but the email will only look like it came from the company’s official email. Scammers often create email addresses that resemble official emails, but aren’t exactly the same.
  3. The web address isn’t correct. It is never a good idea to click a link from a suspicious email. However, if a person does, the website they are taken to won’t be the official airline’s website. This can be determined by going to the airline’s website manually, without the link, or by looking at the website’s URL. If the URL does not have https, the “s” being the most important part since it denotes that the site is secured, then the site is a fake. Most modern web browsers also put a padlock symbol next to secure websites.
  4. Didn’t buy airline tickets. This is the most important one. If a person didn’t buy tickets on an airline, they shouldn’t believe any email saying they did. If a person wants to be safe, they can contact the airline’s official customer service center by getting the contact info off the website after going to it manually.

Signs Of A Scam

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different scams out there that con-artists love to pull on unsuspecting people. It is practically impossible to learn about all of them, and scammers are always coming up with new ideas anyways. This means that the best way to avoid a scam, is to learn how to identify them because even though there are a bunch of different scams, they all give off the same warning signs.

  • Don’t click links in emails. A person should never click links in suspicious emails. If they need to visit a website, they should do so by manually entering the desired site into the search bar on their web browser.
  • Too good to be true. It’s almost a cliché at this point, but when things seem too good to be true, it is often because they are. If an email is promising unimaginable wealth, then it is a scam.
  • Don’t wire transfer money. Wired money can be traced or returned to the victim, which is why scammers love to use this method of money transfer.
  • Don’t be rushed. Scammers love to create a sense of urgency or a need to rush. This causes people not to think things through and end up making bad decisions, which is good for a scammer and bad for the victim.
  • Don’t give out personal info. A person should never give out personal information unless they are 100% certain of who they are giving it to.
  • Don’t be urged into secrecy. Some scams don’t want their victims to communicate with others about the scam, because doing so will lessen the chances of the scam succeeding.
  • Check sender email address. If the email address is gibberish, or from an email that is similar, but not the same, as an official company email, then it is a scam.

No One Wants To Get Conned

No one ever wants to get scammed out of their hard earned money. They especially don’t want to ever have to admit that they might have been tricked. After all, getting conned is not fun. In order to avoid this, a person needs to stay vigilant. Luckily, the signs of a scam are often pretty obvious and easy to detect, provided a person knows what to look for. The tips above can help push a person in the right direction.

If a person wasn’t planning on going anywhere this summer, and yet receives an email for the confirmation of tickets for a flight being purchased, it is probably a scam. If the person wants to be sure that they have nothing to worry about, go to the supposed company’s official website and contact customer support from there. Do not click any links in the email.

What To Do When Traffic Lights Stops Working

What To Do When Traffic Lights Stops Working

With all of the technology around us that helps keep the world running, it can be hard to imagine what things used to be like before that tech existed. How could people have lived without all of this amazing stuff? Well, every once in a while we get to find out. As amazing as all of this tech is, it isn’t indestructible, and can sometimes come crashing down.

Take for instance one of the most important bits of technology for drivers, especially those traveling through cities: Stoplights. These simple bits of tech may not seem like a big deal, but when they go down, they can cause quite a commotion.

Who Would Have Thought Traffic Lights Would Have Such an Impact

As drivers, everyone expects that everything will go their way. Cars will drive on the right side of the road, drivers will stay in their lanes, and use turn signals when needed. When something like this doesn’t work properly, such as a driver not signaling their turn or lane change, it can be frustrating.

What can be more frustrating, and even confusing for some, is when a traffic light goes down. Traffic lights can go down for a few different reasons, such as:

  • Power outage
  • Computer failure
  • Maintenance

When this occurs, all of the lights in the intersection will either blink the red light on and off, or they will go black entirely. This can cause a lot of confusion for drivers who were expecting the light to be working and telling them how to proceed through the intersection.

So, what are drivers supposed to do when they come across and intersection with stoplights that are not working?

How To Drive Through Downed Stoplights

The answer to that questions is actually very simple and straight forward. When stoplights go down, drivers are supposed to treat the intersection the same way they would one controlled by stop signs.

This means that drivers need to come to a full stop before entering the intersection. They should allow other drivers who reached the limit line before them to go first. So long as everyone is polite and takes their turn, things will move smoothly.

Some drivers assume that if the road they are on is a main road, and the other one a minor one, they on the main road do not have to stop. This is wrong. All cars in all directions have to stop before entering the intersection. Ironically, by stopping this keeps traffic moving in all directions.

Everyone has seen a working stoplight intersection before, and can reproduce it on a smaller, turn-based scale. For example, the traffic could proceed as follows, one car at a time per lane:

  1. Cars on the up and down road seeking to make a left can go first.
  2. Cars going straight on the up and down road go next.
  3. Cars making left turns on the right and left road go next.
  4. Cars going straight on the right and left roads go next.
  5. Repeat the process.

So long as everyone works together, things will run smoothly.

Just Take Turns

Dealing with a downed traffic light isn’t exactly fun. When people are driving, they expect everything to be working properly so that they can get to their destination on time. With all of the technology at our disposal, this should be easy, but sometimes, tech fails.

Something as small as a traffic light going down can greatly slow down a person’s commute. However, trying to rush through a down intersection only create more problems for everyone else. It is in everybody’s interest to work together and take turns.

Do you have another good example of when a small bit of tech goes down that had a bigger impact than you might have guessed?

Beware Of Extreme Heat This Summer

Beware Of Extreme Heat This Summer

Summer is in full swing here in California, and many parts of the state are feeling the heat. While for some this is a nice change of pace from the cold of winter, for others this is just another extreme to be dealt with. Just like the cold, the heat can become harmful and even deadly. That is why people need to take the proper steps to ensure their health and well-being this summer.

When the weather grows indescribably hot, there are several things a person should do to keep cool. At excessive temperatures, keeping cool isn’t just about comfort, it is about staying healthy. At high temperatures, a person can suffer from heatstroke or heat exhaustion. Both can be very serious conditions, have their own unique symptoms, and require their own responses to keep the person suffering from them safe. The following information comes from the National Weather Service’s website.

In addition, heat cramps could be a warning sign of these illnesses starting to take effect in the person. If a person has been in hot weather and is suffering from cramps, usually in their legs or abdomen, they should:

  • Apply firm pressure to the cramping muscle.
  • Massage the muscle.
  • Sip on water so long as the person isn’t nauseous.

Feeling Tired From The Heat?

Spending too much time in the sun, or even just a warm area, can cause a person to suffer from heat exhaustion. When a person is suffering from heat exhaustion, they will experience the following symptoms:

  • Cool, pale, clammy skin.
  • Dizziness.
  • Fainting.
  • Fast, weak pulse.
  • Heavy sweating.
  • Muscle cramps.
  • Nausea, vomiting.
  • Weakness.

If a person is suffering these symptoms, they should get to a cooler area as soon as possible. They should loosen, or if possible, remove clothing to help cool off. If the person is conscious, give them sips of water. Apply cool, wet clothes to as much of the body as possible.

If the person vomits more than once, seek immediate medical attention.

The Signs Of Heat Stroke

Heat stroke is another, more serious heat related condition. The symptoms of heat stroke include:

  • Altered mental state.
  • Body temperature over 103 degrees.
  • Confusion.
  • Dizziness.
  • Faints.
  • Hot, red, dry, or moist skin.
  • Nausea.
  • Rapid, strong pulse.
  • Shallow breathing.
  • Throbbing headache.

If a person exhibits these symptoms, contact 911 or get them to a hospitable immediately. If waiting for emergency services, move the person into a cooler area, preferably with air conditioning. Apply cool, wet cloths to as much as the body as possible or put them in a cool bath. Fan them only if the air temperature is under 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do not give the person fluids.

Stay Cool This Summer

During the warm summer months, it is important for person to keep cool, not just to remain comfortable, but to remain in good health as well. Not only does a person need to keep an eye on themselves during these warm times, but they need to watch out for those who can’t take care of themselves or those who are more susceptible to heat such as young children and the elderly. Doing so could keep them safe this summer.

It is also important to remember to stay hydrated when in hot weather. The human body uses water, in the form of sweat, to help regulate the body’s temperature. Without enough water, the body can begin to suffer from one of these illnesses.

What are some ways that you like to keep cool during the summer, especially while working?

What Documents Do You Need To Post Bail?

What Documents Do You Need To Post Bail?

When it comes to bail, most people are a bit of a loss. After all, no one ever really plans on needing bail, and therefore no one ever talks about it. This leaves people lost and confused when they suddenly find themselves needing bail. Luckily, there are professionals available to help at Bail Bonds in San Ramon.

One of the more common questions our bail agents receive is what documents do clients need to post bail?

  • AN OFFICIAL I.D. – This one is pretty self-explanatory. Whenever a lot of money is involved, companies need to be sure that person they are talking to is exactly who they claim to be. This helps thwart any sort of identity theft. All we need to see is some form of official ID, such as a driver’s license.
  • PROOF OF RESIDENCE – This will prove that you are a California resident. This kind of proof can easily be given by showing a utility bill with your home address on it.
  • PROOF OF INCOME – Lastly, we will need to see that you can truly afford your loved one’s bail bond. This can easily be accomplished with a pay stub or bank statement.

If a person has these documents ready to go when they talk to a bail agent, they will be able to speed up the bail process, thus getting their loved one out of jail quicker.

Bail may seem intimidating and scary, but it is actually easy, provided you come to Bail Bonds in San Ramon for help. Our agents are available 24/7 to get your loved one out of jail as quickly as possible. With us by your side, you will have nothing to worry about.

Be Careful Meeting People From The Internet In Real Life

Be Careful Meeting People From The Internet In Real Life

Over the last few years, the internet has become an almost integral part of people’s everyday lives. Most people can’t go a day without going online for one reason or another. The internet has allowed people to do a whole lot without ever leaving their homes, such as shopping or communicating with people.

As detached as the internet allows a person to be, there are times where people chose to meet with others they met online. Usually it is to buy or sell something, but sometimes it is because the people decided they wanted to meet face to face. As harmless as this may sound, it can actually be very dangerous to meet someone new for the first time, even if the people have been talking online. The fact of the matter is, a person never knows for sure who he may be meeting.

The Internet Isn’t Always Truthful

When it comes to the internet, there is a lot of anonymity. No one ever knows for sure who they are dealing with since no one ever sees the other’s real face. They may not even get the other person’s real name. Even though a person may claim to be someone online, doesn’t mean it is true.

Anyone, good or bad, can be found online. This is why it is so important for people to keep personal information, name, address, and phone number, to themselves. They should also keep all of their online accounts set to private. Doing so can reduce the chances of something bad happening.

Still, there are times when people from the internet decide to meet in person, for one reason or another.

Choose A Safe Meeting Location

The most common reason why internet people meet in real life is when one is selling something to the other person. Unfortunately, what should be a harmless interaction can turn dangerous, or even deadly, for one of the people involved. This is usually due to the fact that one person is not who they claimed to be, and is just trying to lure the other into a trap of some sort.

In order to avoid being taken advantage of, and avoid any harm, a person needs to play it safe when meeting with an online buyer or seller. One of the simplest ways to do that is to choose the right meeting place. A person should never invite an online seller or buyer to their house, and likewise, they should never agree to meet someone at their house.

The best places to meet are in public, during broad daylight, with lots of witnesses close by. This way, if the other person tries to pull anything, there will be people close by who can help out. One of the best places to meet people from online, is at a local sheriff’s or police station. In fact, some stations have begun designating areas in their parking lots specifically for this reason. This helps ensure everyone’s safety.

A criminal would have to be very brazen to try to pull anything. Plus, setting up a meeting here is also a good way to weed out people who are trying to pull some sort of scam or criminal activity, since they won’t like the idea of meeting at a police station. If anyone ever tries to disagree with meeting at a police station, they should probably be avoided. After all, it is in both party’s best interest to meet in a safe place, and it doesn’t get much safer than right outside a police station.

Another good idea is to bring a buddy, someone trusted. This again just adds an extra witness to everything, and further reduces the chances of something bad happening. If a person can’t find someone else to bring with them, because their loved one’s are busy, then they should at least tell a trusted loved one everything about the planned meeting. This includes:

  • Time of meeting.
  • Location.
  • Reason for meeting.
  • All information on the person they are meeting with.

This way, if something goes wrong, someone else should know about it.

Stay Safe When Buying From Someone Online

When it comes to buying stuff online from people rather than retailers, it is always best to exercise some caution. No one wants to get scammed. Taking the proper steps, like meeting near a police station, can prevent something bad from helping, thereby allowing the person to go about their day without worry.

Hopefully you’ve never had a bad experience when buying an item online, but maybe you have a weird or memorable one. In the comments below, tell us about your weirdest or most memorable experience of buying something from someone online.

 

Could Banning Facial Recognition Become The New Norm?

Could Banning Facial Recognition Become The New Norm?

Today’s modern world has a lot of technology that at one point had simply been considered science fiction. Things such as ear buds, video calls, and mobile phones were just cool, out of this world ideas when they were first depicted in books and movies. Nowadays, they are a part of everyday life for most individuals. While many of these things are welcomed with open arms, some technologies are a bit invasive.

One such example of invasive tech would be facial recognition. With cameras everywhere, law enforcement agencies are able to use this kind of technology to locate people of interest in cases and bring them into justice. However, these electronic eyes are always watching, and this causes some concern amongst some people. That is why one U.S. city is considering banning the use of this technology, or at the very least, limiting its uses.

San Francisco May Be The First To Ban Facial Recognition

The city of San Francisco is no stranger when it comes to creating new laws in uncharted territory. The city has been doing this for years now, and is currently considering a ban on facial recognition technology due to its invasive nature. The current proposed law would prohibit the San Francisco police from using the software, but not affect businesses or people from using the software. It also would not prevent the software from being used at San Francisco International Airport or the Port of San Francisco.

While facial recognition technology is an incredibly helpful tool, especially for law enforcement agencies, it is also very invasive. Essentially, any camera out there in the world can be used to locate a single person. This is very helpful for manhunts, but can be dangerous if used by people with less than honest intentions. According to the New York Times, there is a fifty percent chance that a person’s face is already in a law enforcement’s database by the time they reach adulthood.

Another problem comes from a recent study published by MIT Media Lab. The study found that the facial recognition software tended to make mistakes with identifying a person’s gender if they were female or had darker skin.

It is the possible invasion of privacy and large room for error that gives some people cause for concern. However, while some people are against the technology, they do recognize its practical uses. This leads to some people supporting some sort of limitations on the technology, instead of an outright ban. This way, it can be used as needed, or allowed to come back once the tech has a better success rate.

What This Could Mean For The Rest Of The Country

Other cities and states, such as nearby Oakland and even Massachusetts, have also considered placing bans on facial recognition technology. It is safe to assume that they, along with other locations, will be paying close attention to San Francisco. Depending on how things go there, they may copy the ban or make alterations to better suite their needs or beliefs.

There is no denying that facial recognition software has many benefits, especially in the law enforcement field. The technology can help officers locate wanted criminals, or track down missing children. This is a very powerful tool. However, its strength comes at the cost of privacy. This technology looks at everyone, whether they want it to or not, and once they are in the facial recognition database, they likely earn’t getting out of it, if they ever even realize that they are there. That is what scares some people, and causes them to look for some sort of restrictions on the technology.

What do you think of facial recognition software?

Is it a helpful tool for police officers, or is it too invasive to a person’s privacy? Is San Francisco right in the idea that the tech should be outright banned, or should they do something a little less permanent? Should other cities and states follow suite? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

Scammers Using Earthquakes To Run Cons

Scammers Using Earthquakes To Run Cons

Californians are well aware of the fact that by living in California, they are choosing to live with earthquakes. This is an easy commitment to make with how infrequently large quakes happen. However, once a decent sized earthquake rumbles through, people begin to second guess their decision.

This is what is happening for many Californians, especially Southern Californians, after the Fourth of July earthquake in Ridgecrest After that shaking, and the continual shaking that has been hitting the area since, many people are on edge. Everyone is anxious that an even bigger earthquake will strike and cause a whole lot of destruction.

While most people are stressing over the looming threat of another earthquake, scammers are busy scheming.

How The Scam Works

When it comes to conning people, scammers love to play off of people’s emotions. One of the favorite emotions that scammers love to manipulate in victims is fear. When people are scared, they are more likely to panic and make bad decisions. Scammers use this to take advantage of their victims.

With all of the earthquake hysteria right now, scammers are taking advantage of it. In Orange County, officials are warning of scammers who are calling houses, claiming to be officials of some sort, and warning of a major earthquake coming. The stammer attempts to convince the resident to get out of their house.

In some instances, this seems to be a prank, in others it seems to be an attempt at burglary. The scammers are trying to get the house empty so they can get inside and steal some valuables. Officials warn that if a person receives a call like this, they should ignore it and report the incident and phone number to the authorities.

How Emergency Warnings Are Issued

When it comes to officials warning the general populace about disasters, there are only certain methods they use. Those methods include:

  • The Emergency Broadcast System.
  • Wireless emergency alerts.
  • Through designated paps.
  • Through county or city websites.

Government agencies never contact individuals directly, especially not in the event that an earthquake has struck.

It is also important to remember that there is currently no accurate way to predict when an earthquake will strike. All current methods of warning only activate once an earthquake strikes can only warn of incoming shaking.

Stay Calm & Be Prepared

With the recent earthquakes striking Ridgecrest, everyone is on edge in California. However, that is no reason to let yourself get scammed. Now, more than ever, it is important for everyone to keep a level head and not give into panic. Staying calm can help a person make good decisions and avoid getting scammed.

As far as the earthquakes go, the best a person can do is be prepared. This means having enough food and water stored away to last every person in the house for three days. Plus there should be medical supplies, pet food if the person owns pets, and activities to keep kids entertained and busy. For a more complete list of what should be in an emergency kit, click here.
