  • Good things come to those who bait !!!

The thieves keep getting smarter. I read this article earlier and thought it might be of interest to any members who travel by any method other than their own vehicle.

I never use anyone's charging port except my own and works. I keep the 20K and 15K charger bricks loaded for my devices when we travel. Not only does it keep anyone from doing above, it also prevents any over charging or power bumps from affecting my devices.

I will add some extra tips that I have learned the hard way just this morning after discovering that someone hacked my whole account and bought 19 iPhones. I got a bill for just over 11,000 dollars. After cleaning my underpants out I called my carrier and yes it was a fraud. Their advice:
1. Call your carrier and have a four digit passcode added to your account that you will need to recite to them whenever you call them.
2. Remove all banking apps and credit card numbers from your phone.
3.  Remove your birthday from Facebook.

All great advice.  ~c~

John, I don't think Facebook let's you remove your birthday anymore. I tried it recently and the best I could do was restrict it to who could view it which, when it comes to Facebook doesn't amount to much.  ~xyz
