1. LONG-TERM PARKING:Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

2. GPS: Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents. Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address in it… Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.

3. CELL PHONES: I never thought of this……. This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says, “I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.” When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text “hubby” in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc…. b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back. c. Also, when you’re being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going places to meet “family and friends” who text you.

4. PURSE IN THE GROCERY CART SCAM: A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children’s seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf… wait till you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.




Odd news from around the world

Icelander breaks his own keg toss world record: “STANDING 205cm tall and weighing in at a staggering 180kg, the enormity of the man that is Hafthor Bjornsson is no secret. Already known for his incredible feats of strength, the Game of Thrones star has once again shocked fans with a show of power that’s almost unimaginable to your everyday human. Bjornsson tackled his own world record in the keg toss at the Giants Live strongman contest in Sweden on Saturday. The 27-year-old managed to lob a 15kg beer keg over his head and clear the bar at a peak height of 7.05m, a feat described by Giants Live as “the equivalent of throwing a four-year-old over three buses stacked on top of each other. Bjornsson previously broke into the Guinness World Records in 2014 for the event, when he launched a 12.3kg keg to a height of 8.05m. Now the strongman has thrown an even heavier keg like it was a mere football, to a similarly shocking elevation.”

‘Bankrupt’ 50 Cent stashes wads of $100 bills in his refrigerator: “RAPPER 50 Cent says he’s penniless — yet keeps a dozen bundles of $US100 bills in his fridge. The cold, hard cash shares shelf space with a bottle of vodka and two packages of Kraft American cheese, according to a photo that Fitty, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, bizarrely posted on Instagram that will no doubt intrigue his fans — not to mention his bankruptcy judge. “Gotta keep a cool little $tash and some Effen Vodka Happy Holidays,” Fitty wrote. He’s the spokesman for the Dutch vodka brand and gets a cut of its profits. A video features Fitty saying “give me a piece of this cheese” as he reaches between piles of $100 bills. The “Get Rich or Die Tryin’ ” singer claims he’s $US28 million in debt. He filed for bankruptcy in July just days after a Florida woman, Lastonia Leviston, won a $US7 million verdict against him in Manhattan Supreme Court. Fitty had published her private sex tape online to get back at his rival, rapper Rick Ross, who once fathered a child with her.”

Dog reported missing over a year ago is found alive and well in a DRAIN PIPE: “A dog that was reported missing more than a year ago was found alive in a drain pipe in Maryland and has been successfully rescued and returned to a shelter. The Wheaton Terrier known both as Cookie and Mai Tai had only recently been rescued from the dog-meat trade in Thailand when he went missing in his new country in October 2014. New York City resident Nick An was walking one of his relative’s Great Dane during a visit in Bethesda when the dog pulled him toward the storm drain and began to bark. ‘I went over and I just saw a dog in there,’ An told WJLA. ‘[It was] pretty beat-up looking.’ Cookie was dirty but found to be in good health and was not malnourished when he was rescued. The dog was also still wearing his collar and tags from when he was lost in Kensington in 2014. ‘Just amazing that this guy has apparently lived on his own for nearly a year,’ the shelter wrote on Facebook.

Spotty house going cheap: “Two-bedroom house with sea views goes on sale for £200,000 – but can you SPOT the unusual feature? The unusual property is located between Brighton and Eastbourne overlooking the English Channel. Each room features at least one picture of a Dalmatian while the exterior is painted white with black spots. The current owner is understood to be a massive fan of the film 101 Dalmatians and obviously has one himself. The two-bedroom apartment is across the road from the local pub and beside an Indian takeaway. The quirky apartment, in Peacehaven, Sussex, overlooks the stunning Howard Park, and offers two double bedrooms, a fitted kitchen and spectacular sea views – and is on the market for just £200,000. Despite the unusual exterior, the interior of the house does little to give away the owner’s odd obsession – except for a single Dalmatian in every photograph in every room.

German riot cops are mocked for new uniform’s helmets that make them look like Darth Vader : “Regarding its police, naturally the southern German state of Bavaria hopes that its force is strong, but some think they have taken that pledge a little too seriously. The regional interior minister Joachim Herrmann has unveiled new uniforms which have become a laughing stock online with many comparing the officers wearing them to Darth Vader from Star Wars. The new equipment is described as a big step in the move to increase police safety in the wake of the latest terror attacks. It has cost upwards of 65 million euros and is designed to withstand attacks by Kalashnikovs, but nevertheless has attracted many jokes. The pair of policemen presenting the new uniforms however looked less than pleased, with some justification given the criticism that followed and the frequent use of their images. Internet user Jan Bohmetmann who posted on twitter: ‘I am not so sure that the new helmets will help Bavarian cops gain authority.'”
