During the holidays, thieves will actually follow delivery trucks, snatching the packages that the driver leaves at peoples’ front doors. Thieves will also cruise around neighborhoods in search of boxes left at front doors—and steal them.
Here are numerous tips on how to protect packages, that are being sent to you from theft, and also how to safeguard anything you’re sending out. 


-Get a tracking number from the shipping company.
-Require a signature with the delivery.
-If you won’t be home, have the company leave the package at a local shipping center.
-Set up an obvious surveillance camera with your home security system.

 

The scam begins with something most grandparents don't get enough of -- a phone call from a grandchild -- or so the caller says. But it almost always ends with a desperate plea for money.

They call senior citizens in the U.S., impersonating a grandchild in distress, begging for cash.

This is how a typical call would go, 'Hey, how are you, hi grandma, hi grandpa... I'm in a little bit of trouble right now. If I tell you, just keep it between us, I'm on vacation, but I got into trouble, and I was arrested and need you to send me money/gift cards wired or an account opened immediately.

 

The holiday season is upon us, and many pet parents plan to include 
their furry companions in the festivities. As you gear up for the 
holidays, it is important to try to keep your pet's eating and exercise 
habits as close to their normal routine as possible. Also, please be 
sure to steer pets clear of the following unhealthy treats, toxic plants 
and dangerous decorations.
