SCAM ALERT- Fake Puppy Adoption Offers

Looking for a new pet? You may want to think twice about following up on an ad for an expensive breed of dog offered for a low price. These ads often appear with an irresistible photo of a puppy in newspapers or on websites, Craig's List, or Facebook. It typically works like this: The scammer posts the ad and has you pay for shipping via wire transfer. But no puppy is sent, because there really isn't one (those adorable photos are often stock images). There are variations on this scam -- maybe the scammer asks you to pay for "fees" rather than shipping -- but you get the idea.

To avoid being a victim, ask for additional photos, a phone number, and registration information from the seller. If those pieces aren't forthcoming, don't act on the ad. Never send money to another country, and never pay via cash or wire transfer. Watch for poor grammar or ads that seem "off" in the way they're worded. Finally, be wary of sellers that are anxious to sell a pet quickly.

This Month's FAQ - Can My Computer Be Damaged During A Storm?

Question: I'm always a little concerned when it's stormy out. Is there a possibility bad weather can damage my computer?

Answer: Yes, a lightning strike can cause considerable damage to, or even destroy, computers and other electronic devices. Your house should be equipped with a Network Interface Device (NID), which is designed to prevent lightning from damaging wiring. You can and should also use an uninterruptible power supply (USP). But, neither of these precautions is guaranteed to prevent damage. The best way to protect your electronics is to unplug them during a storm. After the storm passes, be sure to start them up again to make sure they're operating properly.
