The holiday rush is here, down to the last few shopping days. With that you can be sure that car prowls will be on the rise as people leave items in their vehicles. Home burglaries also go up at this time of the year with packages under trees as easy pickings. We also see the package thefts from porches picking up, so make arrangements for someone to be home to take in the packages when they arrive rather than leaving them as easy targets. Stay alert for anything that looks suspicious and call it in.

The days are getting warmer as the recent days have demonstrated. Heatstroke is one of the leading causes of non-crash-related fatalities among children. Vehicle heatstroke occurs when a child is left in a hot vehicle, allowing for the child’s temperature to rise in a quick and deadly manner. Heatstroke begins when the core body temperature reaches about 104 degrees. A core body temperature of about 107 degrees is lethal. Unfortunately, even great parents can forget a child in the back seat. It’s vitally important to understand children are more vulnerable to heatstroke than adults.

One of the scams that is going around the area at this time is the “job offer scam.” Among the warning signs of this scam are being offered a job without an application, interview or discussion; the company asking you to wire money or give your personal information like your social security number; being told you have to pay for a credit report; or being asked to cash a check and forward the money to a third party. Remember, when it seems to be too good to be true, it usually is.

Identity Theft is a Growing Issue

There are several way to help protect yourself from becoming a victim.

Car prowls are one of the ways identity thieves steal your information. Another way they get your information is by mailbox thefts, so make sure to pick up your mail quickly even if you have a lock on your mailbox.

If you suspect your identity has been compromised, contact the credit reporting agencies to lock your credit. As of September 2018 a new federal law allows people to freeze and unfreeze their credit at the three major credit bureaus without being charged.
