Jury Duty Scam Leads to Identity Theft

Here's a new twist scammers are using to commit identity theft: the jury
duty scam. Here's how it works:

The scammer calls claiming to work for the local court and claims you've
failed to report for jury duty. He tells you that a warrant has been issued
for your arrest. The victim will often rightly claim they never received
the jury duty notification. The scammer then asks the victim for
confidential information for "verification" purposes.

Specifically, the scammer asks for the victim's Social Security number,
birth date, and sometimes even for credit card numbers and other private
information -- exactly what the scammer needs to commit identity theft.

So far, this jury duty scam has been reported in Michigan, Ohio, Texas,
Arizona, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington state.
The BBB of North Alabama has not yet had any reports of this scam targeting
North Alabama.

It's easy to see why this works. The victim is clearly caught off guard, and
is understandably upset at the prospect of a warrant being issued for his or
her arrest. So, the victim is much less likely to be vigilant about
protecting their confidential information.

In reality, court workers will never call you to ask for social security
numbers and other private information. In fact, most courts follow up via
mail and rarely, if ever, call prospective jurors.

Action: Never give out your Social Security number, credit card numbers or
other personal confidential information when you receive a telephone call.

This jury duty scam is the latest in a series of identity theft scams where
scammers use the phone to try to get people to reveal their Social Security
number, credit card numbers or other personal confidential information.

It doesn't matter “why” they are calling -- all the reasons are just
different variants of the same scam. Identity theft is real and it’s
happening just about everywhere.

Protecting yourself is simple: Never give this info out when you receive a
phone call.

When In Doubt…

Check It Out with your BBB!

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used
to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a

Live Strong.

Wyatt reported earlier in the week that the Frogs think Armstrong was doping during his first tour. Well, even the tour director think such.

Sounding convinced that Lance Armstrong is guilty of doping, the director of the Tour de France said "we were all fooled" and the seven-time champion owes an explanation for "proven scientific facts" from a newspaper report alleging he cheated to win cycling's most prestigious event.

Jean-Marie Leblanc's comments appeared in the French sports daily L'Equipe on Wednesday, a day after the newspaper reported that six urine samples provided by Armstrong during the '99 Tour tested positive for the red blood cell-booster EPO.


Have the French press not been beating this drumb since the FIRST STAGE WIN back in '99?


EPO, formally known as erythropoietin, was on the list of banned substances at the time Armstrong won the first of his seven Tours, but there was no effective test then to detect it.

The allegations took six years to surface because EPO tests on the 1999 samples were carried out only last year _ when scientists at the national doping test lab outside Paris opened them up again for research to perfect EPO screening, with the blessing of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Another five-time Tour champion, Miguel Indurain, said he couldn't understand why scientists would use samples from the '99 Tour for their tests.


Smells like rotten cheese to me.

Alabama Quarters Recalled

Hang on to any of the new State of Alabama quarters. If you have them, they may be worth much more than 25 cents.

The U.S. Treasury announced today that it is recalling all of the Alabama quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each state.

"We are recalling all the new Alabama quarters that were recently issued," Treasury Undersecretary Jack Shackleford said Monday. "This action is being taken after numerous reports that the new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices."

The quarters were issued in the order in which the various states joined the U.S. and have been a tremendous success among coin collectors worldwide.

"The problem lies in the unique design of the Alabama quarter, which was created by an Auburn University graduate," Shackleford said.

"Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices.

Bothering me? No, Bothering You.

I don't remember where I found the article, but it mentions that the road construction industry is just a big scam. All those people who are usually paid by the hour standing around, for hours at a time, doing absolutely nothing. Example, the guy that holds the sign warning you of the upcoming hazard. Well, he probably gets paid $8-$10 an hour. However, you could buy the sign frame for what? $16.

Paving a 12x12 patch should not take a month. Hell, they had our driveway done in an afternoon.


Road Taxes are the single largest income that out cities, states, and counties receive. What do we have to show for it? Gridlock and potholes. Not enough roads for the traffic and roads to shitty to drive on. Average maintenance cost for drives due to road hazards is close to $500 a year.

And another thing is car dealerships. I know, this topic has been beaten to death since the automobile became standard fair, but when you decide to get rid of your car you have three prices; retail, private party, trade in.

Retail, the price you should expect to pay at a dealership.

Private Party, the price you should expect to pay from an individual.

Trade In, the value you should expect from a car dealership.

Example;

A 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer’s retail price is $17,230.
That’s a little less than what we paid three years ago. A loss of around $3k.

Private Party value is $14,280.
A
$3K loss from retail and $6K from the start.

Trade In value is $11,900.
$5,330 off retail and a nearly $9k loss.

My question is why does a dealer get to purchase cars WAY CHEAPER that their worth and sell them for WAY MORE than their worth?


Kelly Blue Book says retail price is:
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail Value is representative of dealers' asking prices and is the starting point for negotiation between a consumer and a dealer. This Suggested Retail Value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. This value also takes into account the dealers' profit, costs for advertising, sales commissions and other costs of doing business. The final sale price will likely be less depending on the vehicle's actual condition, popularity, type of warranty offered and local market conditions.

And Trade In:
Trade-in Value is what consumers can expect to receive from a dealer for a trade-in vehicle assuming an accurate appraisal of condition. This value will likely be less than the Private Party Value because the reselling dealer incurs the cost of safety inspections, reconditioning and other costs of doing business.

And Private party:
Private Party Value is what a buyer can expect to pay when buying a used car from a private party. The Private Party Value assumes the vehicle is sold "As Is" and carries no warranty (other than the continuing factory warranty). The final sale price may vary depending on the vehicle's actual condition and local market conditions. This value may also be used to derive Fair Market Value for insurance and vehicle donation purposes.

So, WTF?

Say I recondition my car to BETTER than dealer spec. (Trust me, that’s not hard to do.) Why can I not sell it for retail? I may incur expense upon selling the car.

I don’t know, that has just been eating at me lately.

Oh, when you go to look for a newer car from a dealer SELL YOUR CURRENT CAR. DO NOT TRADE IT IN!! Mainly for the reasons outlined above, but dealers will tack some extra cash upon that final purchase price because they not have another car to get rid of. Now having a trade in puts the buyer in a better position to haggle.

Bring on the Hate.

There seems to be a rash (two) of hate full comments posted on my blog. Oddly enough both posts were since I installed Haloscan and were track-backed from other blogs. This leads me to believe that track-back is 100% successful at bringing in the hate. So lets have some fun with the unlucky bastards.


Bush is a visionairy guy. he spends all his time in vacation and lets the rednecks like you guys do all the work. And you're too dumb to realise it, you're even supporting him. I don't understand the democrats when they keep trying to make life better for the little guy while the little guy keeps voting on the dumbshit party. All rich democrats, like me, should join the rich republicans at the side of the pool and let the idiots like you continue eating dirt and working crappy jobs. The usa has always been this way, so why vote democrat and change that.

Mr. Rik,

I would like to thank you for that insightful comment. Please learn to spell and work on that grammar.

Tragic. No. BOO-HOO!

A 15-year-old schoolgirl who only found she had HIV when she became pregnant has given birth at a hospital in Swansea, it has emerged.

The new mother, thought to have had only two sexual partners, was infected by an older man who was also the baby's father.


Yada, yada; and then they go on to say, “"It is no longer a gay issue. It's a heterosexual issue.”

All I have to say is; "Abstinence works every time."

Alabama's very own political whore.

Johnny Swanson.

(I know, but I found this on Kos)

12. Alabama
(last update: 12) Neither Ex-Governor Jim Folsom, Jr. or Don Siegleman filed to run against Senator Dick Shelby in 2004. That leaves Democrat Wayne Sowell, an NCO who supports marijuana legalization as the sacrificial lamb against Shelby (Democrat Johnny Swanson III was kicked off the ballot) Shelby should win big in 2004, in what will likely be his last term in the Senate.


It doesn't say WHY he was kicked off the ballot.

Turns out he was kicked because of his nomination as an independent in a run-off election and then tried to run as a Democrat.

Never mind the 1996 tax charge conviction and he doesn't even have the right to vote.

And to think.

This kid gets charged with harassment and I can't get my problems solved.

What do you think?

Two heterosexual Canadian men are to tie the knot to enjoy the tax benefits of being a married couple.

HAHAHA! That's a Hoot!

Just for the record.

There is more crap over at the Syndicate.

Now I know.

Why do I like Botach Tactical. Because they carry Kosher MRE's.

I just thought that was a neat idea.

It's Not Google's fault...

that their morons. Oh, wait. Yes! Yes it is.

It seems that Google doesn't only have right of center news groups in it's cross hairs.

Peter Jennings Dies at 67.

Peter Jennings, 67, the urbane anchorman of ABC's evening newscast for the past 22 years, died yesterday at his home in New York

And more here.

So it IS true.

LONDON (AFP) - Men who are accused of never listening by women now have an excuse -- women's voices are more difficult for men to listen to than other men's, a report said.

This Has To Be Big.

The Justice Department has been tight-lipped about the searches carried out Wednesday at the New Orleans and the Washington residences of U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, an eight-term Democrat.

Carnival of Cordite #25

Carnival of Cordite #25 at Resistance is Futile!

Wake up A** Hole.

Somebody tell David Turner, the WVNN news guy, to flip that switch again and stop talking like a retard. YES, DAVID EVERYONE HEARD YOU!

Blog Family Tree.

I have noticed that I have been blogging for a little over six months now and I have never really explained why I do this and who actually got me into blogging. So I will try and setup a makeshift bloggers family tree.

Blog Father - Frank J. -The First blog I came across. One of my local radio talk show hosts thought it was a hoot so I went and have never looked back.

Blog Mother - SarahK -This just happens to be the second blog which graced my computer screen. That and other obvious reasons.

Blog Uncle - G. Reynolds -He is like that Uncle that everyone knows, but doesnÂ’t want around. (I hope I get linked before I die.)

Blog Uncle - Vilmar -I was a big fan of his rants when he was over at BMEWS. Now that he has his own blog where I provide constant (unwanted) harassment.

Blog Brother - Dr. Phat Tony - I would not know about him if it wasn't for the near constant harassment in the IMAO comments.

Blog Brother - CUG - Again, I would not know him if it wasn't for the near constant harassment over at IMAO.

Blog Brother - Damian G. - Yet again, I would not know him if it wasn't for the constant harassment from CUG.

Blog Brother - Andrew - Blog Brother from the Left Coast.

Blog Sister - Uber - Phat Tony, CUG, and Damian linked so did I. ( I felt left out.)

Blog Brother - Wyatt Earp - Yankee Pig. :)


I don't think I left anyone out.


Update: Blog Aunt and Uncle - Mae and Joe - Sorry forgot.

HOLY CRAP! (Again)

I wish this would stop happening. It's freaking me out.

Get Well Soon.

Rammstein's lead man, Till, destroyed a knee. Get that fixed man and get back on stage.

Updates to previous stories.

Alabama's limits on eminent domain.

This is not a previous story, but funny. It seems that Palmaro's problem's with steroids is Clinton's fault.

This guy may be right about the "Hot Coffee" mod in Grand theft Auto.

Michael Yon: Online Magazine

Michael has some new stuff up over at his blog.

Bizarre News of the Day.

In Brittan your on the edge trying to keep terrosists from killing you countrymen and now you have this to work around.

You have got to be kidding me.

Tragic, but...

It was the guns fault.

News, again.

Today NASA had to break out the duct tape.

Spacewalking astronaut Steve Robinson plucked a couple of loose fiber strips from Discovery's belly on Wednesday in an unprecedented repair to the shuttle's heat shield.

Is that like a loose string on a shirt?






Just 12,000 pennies?

Photo.

Can you tell what type of "Humming Bird" this is?

Bohemian Conservative

Mae's mom is doing better and their lives seem to be returning to "normal" so that means lots of new posts.

Go pay them a visit.

Joe, we need some motorsport news.

Wednesday!! Wednesday!!

Yeah, slow news day. Well, not slow, just not my kinda' news.

Alabama has decided to combat eminent domain.

Not that many.

"Technorati is now tracking over 7.8 million weblogs, and 937 million links. That's just about double the number of weblogs tracked in October 2004. In fact, the blogosphere is doubling in size about once every 5 months. It has already done so at this pace four times, which means that in the last 20 months, the blogosphere has increased in size by over 16 times."

John Hawkins
goes deeper onto some fairly high numbers of actual blogosphere members.

Dumb, Dumb.

1) Bush's Absurd Strategy for Battling Terror

2) Chávez Blames Crisis in Bolivia on 'U.S. Imperialism'
WTF? OMG! STFU? SKTMF!

3) Bush Plans for Global Police State Gather Apace
Global Police State... Right.

4) The political damage may already have been done to Bush’s key man
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! HEHEHEHEAHHAHAHA!

Dictionary.

Funny.

I think I will...

... get a degree.

Best Drink.
Second Best.

Left! NO! No, Right!

Maybe Carter is RIGHT?


Kos? What? "indefensible comments"

Title What?

There is something that has been eating at me since all this crap about GTA:SA has started.

If they want to put an Adult Only rating on the game and in some cases a full ban because of the "Hot Coffee" scene, then what happens when they remove the HIDDEN CODE?

Will that mean the game meets the previous standards and therefore qualify for the Mature rating again?

I am confused...

Unknown Hidden Code = Mature
Unlocked Code in same game = Adult Only
No Hidden Code = ???


UPDATE: What was I really expecting?

UpDate: Have I mentioned I hate people. Not all, but most.

Hum?
