GIVEN UNDER MY HAND on this 10th day of January, 2013 MAI-I MANCILLAS III, Constable Precinct 5, Hays County, Texas /~eSp2t~':::s~ble, Precinct SHays County, Texas Top Scams of 2012 Continued from pg. 1B direct you to wire part of the payment to the graphic designer who will cus- tomize the ad for your vehicle. A week later, the check bounces, the graphic designer is nowhere to be found, and you are out the money you wired. Top Emergency seam: Grandpar- ent Seam: The "Grandparent Seam" has been around a while, but is still so prevalent it's worth mentioning again. A grandparent receives a call from a grandchild/niece/nephew/friend who is traveling abroad and gets into a bad situation where he or she needs money right away. Easy rule of thumb - before you wire money in an emer- gency, check with the supposed victim or other family members to verify the information. Top Employment Seam: Mystery Shopping: Many secret shopping job offers are nothing more than a varia- tion of the overpayment/fake check seam (above). The Mystery Shopping Providers Association says it's not the practice of its members to pre-pay shoppers, but if you have your heart set on this type of job, you can find a legitimate gig through its website at www.mystery- Top Advance Fee/Prepayment seam: Nonexistent Loans: Most of these scares are advertised online and promise things like "no credit check" or "easy repayment terms." The hook: you have to make the first payment upfront, you have to buy an "insurance policy," or there is some other kind of fee that you have to pay up-front to secure the (nonexistent) loan. In 2012, a new, aggressive twist was used: con- sumers reported being threatened with lawsuits and law enforcement action if they didn't pay back loans they claim didn't belong to them in the first place. Some got calls at their workplace, even to relatives. The threats of legal action caused some victims to pay even when they knew they didn't owe the money. Top Phishing Seam: President ObamaWill PayYour Utility Bills: Of all the politicaily-related scams, this one seemed to be the most prevalent. At the peak of summer with utility costs soaring, consumers got emails, letters and even door-to-door so- licitations about a "new government program" that will pay their utility bills. Victims "registered" with an official- looking website and provided every- thing scammers needed for identity theft purposes, including bank account information. Top Sweepstakes/Lottery seam: Jamaican Phone Lottery: This is an old one that flared up again. In this one, the calls come from Jamaica (area code 876), but the person claims to represent BBB (or FBI, or other trusted group). The caller claims you've won a prize (typical haul: $2 million and a Mercedes Benz) but you have to pay a fee in order to collect your winnings. There are lots of variations on this; sometimes it's a government grant. If this happens to you, hang up and then file a phone fraud report with the ap- propriate government agency Top IdentRyTheft seam: Fake Face- book Tweets: You get a Direct Message from a friend on Twitter with some- thing about a video of you on Facebook CROFL they was taping you" or "What RU doing in this FB vid?" are typical tweets). In a panic, you click on the link to see what the embarrassing video could possibly be, and you get an error message that says you need to update Flash or other video player. But the file isn't a new version of Flash; it's a virus or malware that can steal confidential information from your computer or smart phone. Twitter recommends reporting such spam, resetting your password and revoking connections to third-party application. Top Home Improvement seam: Sandy"Storm Chasers": BBB spends a lot of time investigating and report- ing on home improvement seams, but this year we saw an unusual amount of "storm chaser" activity following Super Storm Sandy. Some were legitimate contractors who came from other areas for the volume of work available. Oth- ers were unlicensed, uninsured and ill- prepared for the work, and some were out-and-out seam artists who took the money and never did the work. In an emergency, it's tempting to skip reference checking, but that's never a good idea. Next time you need home repairs, find a contractor at www.bbb. org/search. Top Sales/Rental seam: Real Stars, Fake Goods: Sports memorabilia and phony tickets always make the list of top counterfeit goods. Some seam- • mers sell cheap knock-offs in front of stadiums, while others set up websites and steal your money. Buy directly from team stores and websites, or from legitimate retailers. Remember, ifa deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. seam of the Year: Newtown Char- ity seams: Within hours of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, CT, social media pages began cropping up dedicated to the child victims. Some of these pages were fake and attempting to solicit money from those looking to support the actual victims' families. In response to these reports, BBB Wise Giving Alliance offered tips for donors to understand how and when to best support those dealing with such a tragic crisis.
