Facebook Twitter BBB: Romance scams: Avoid finding love in all the wrong places Twitter Facebook By admin – February 11, 2018 Heather Massey is the Regional Director of the Better Business Bureau in the Permian Basin. Check out www.bbb.org or call 563-1880. BBB Scam TrackerOnline dating and social media have made it easier than ever to meet new people and find potential dates. Unfortunately, it has made scammers’ work simpler too. Con artists create compelling backstories, and full-fledged identities, then trick you into falling for someone who doesn’t even exist. This form of deception is known as “catfishing.”Most romance scams start with fake profiles on dating sites created by stealing photos and text from real accounts or elsewhere. Scammers often claim to be in the military or working overseas to explain why they can’t meet you in person. Over a period of time, the scammer builds a fake relationship with you, exchanging photos and romantic messages, even talking on the phone or through a webcam.Just when the relationship seems to be getting serious, your new sweetheart has a health issue or family emergency or wants to plan a visit. No matter the story, the request is the same: they need money. But after you send money, there’s another request and then another. Or the scammer stops communicating altogether.According to the Federal Trade Commission, there were over 14,000 romance scam reports to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2016. This is more than triple the nearly 4,500 reports made just a few years back in 2012.To avoid any heartbreak, BBB warns of these red flags in a catfish scam:Pressure to leave the dating site. The scammer immediately suggests moving the conversation to text message or your personal email. Also, watch out for profiles that message you immediately after being matched, mainly on dating apps.Hasty expressions of love. They express instant feelings of love, although they have very little knowledge of you.Change of plans. They make plans to visit, but are unexpectedly prevented by a traumatic event or a business deal gone sour. Some may say they’re out of the country for business or on deployment.Requests for money. They make multiple requests for more money, and may even test you and ask for a little at first, and then continue to ask for larger amounts. In some cases, the scammer sends you money and requests you transfer it to another account. If it’s a sudden major expense, that’s a red flag. Don’t wire money if you’re asked to cover travel costs, medical emergencies, hotel bills, hospital bills for a child or relative or visas and other official documents.If you come across any suspicious activity or are a victim of a romance scam, file a Scam Tracker report at bbb.org/scamtracker and the FBI at ic3.gov.

Though only about an inch of rain fell in most areas since Monday night, rainfall totals were much higher in the mountains. In Warm Springs, in the Angeles National Forest near Castaic, 3.95 inches fell. At the fire station in Malibu’s Monte Nido area, 2.13 inches fell as of 7 a.m., but no slides were reported in canyon areas denuded by the wildfires that broke out Nov. 24 atop Corral Canyon and Oct. 21 in Malibu Canyon. In Orange County’s fire-denuded Santiago and Modjeska canyons, no flooding or mudslides were reported. Parts of that burn area, in the Cleveland National Forest, have been coated with hydromulch, a gummy mixture of wood and paper that helps hold hillsides together. For the first time in two years, rainfall totals in Los Angeles were running ahead of the seasonal norm today. A little more than an inch of rain fell at the National Weather Service station at USC over the past day or so and, as of midnight, the seasonal total came to 3.34 inches since July 1, according to Stuart Seto of the NWS. The seasonal norm is 2.85 inches for this time of year, he said. In an average year, Los Angeles gets about 15 inches of rain, but last year only about 3.21 inches fell, making it the driest on record in 130 years. During the 2005-06 rainy season, the total was 11.6 inches. In the mountains, 3-7 inches of snow fell at elevations of 6,500 feet or more, and a NWS snow advisory remained in effect through noon. Seto said the brunt of the storm had passed, but a chance of showers would remain in the forecast through tomorrow. The weekend should be dry, and Monday and Tuesday — Christmas Day — should be mostly clear and warmer, with highs in the mid 60s and lower 70s. About 280 accidents handled by the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles County between 5 p.m. yesterday and 5 a.m. today, compared to about 75 during the same period last week, said CHP Officer David Porter. One of those accidents left one person dead, he said, adding that it happened around 9 p.m. yesterday in Phillips Ranch. Details on the wreck were not expected until after 8 a.m. The storm brought 1.14 inches of rain in downtown Los Angeles, according to the NWS, with much heavier rainfall in Los Angeles County mountain areas, including 2 inches at Camp 9. The rain triggered power outages in Northridge, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power reported. It said that 25,500 customers were affected by outages, some of them brief, that spanned almost 10 hours, ending at 4:30 a.m., said Gale Harris of the DWP. Following are some other rainfall totals, as of 7 a.m.: — Bel-Air Hotel, 1.57 inches — Ballona Creek at Sawtelle Boulevard, 1.26 inches — Hollywood Reservoir, 0.99 inches — Los Angeles River at Firestone Boulevard, 0.72 inches — Chatsworth, 0.81 inches — Pacoima Dam, 1.85 inches — Santa Fe Dam, 1.14 inches 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FOR years he was one of television’s most recognisable faces, but now Donegal actor Gavin O Fearraigh has become the latest victim of the recession – and has turned to waiting tables in Hollywood in a bid to get his career back on track.Gavin was the star of TG4’s Ros na Rún series for five years and once won telly’s Jigs N Reels.But the 31-year-old Gaoth Dobhair man now juggles a part-time job at a Mexican restaurant on Sunset Strip with as many part-time acting jobs as he can find. “It’s not really an option to not wait tables,” said the actor who played Conall Daly in the hit Irish language soap.He shares a Los Angeles apartment with a dancer to make ends meet but thinks a return to Ireland cannot guarantee work.“Things are a lot more difficult now,” he said.“They’ve tightened up in a lot of things, so even acting in Ireland is becoming hard.” And the Donegal man says that even if he were to come home, most of his friends have already left the country, most going to Australia.“Ireland’s a different place now,” said Gavin.“Talking to all my friends at home, a lot of them now have emigrated. I think right now they’re going to where work is.”“Even in Gaoth Dobhair now, everything’s closing down,” O Fearraigh said. “All the restaurants have closed, all the local pubs have closed.”But the hunk actor believes he can fulfill his American dream in Hollywood. He added: “I want to look back as an old man and be able to say I did it.”AdvertisementTHE RECESSION: FROM TG4 TO WAITING TABLES IN HOLLYWOOD FOR DONEGAL ACTOR was last modified: May 9th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
