"Beware of cyber crime..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Friday)

 field of medicine for nearly 40 years

Beware of cyber crime

Recently booking some hotel reservations, I was hacked by a cyber crook during my phone conversation who actually took over my call.  They addressed themselves as the Hotel reservations desk but were really not!!!  That's all it took to use my credit card as a vehicle to charge anything they felt like.


 Luckily I was very suspicious and tracked down my transaction and reported it immediately to my credit card company.  I know this goes on every day but when it hits home it can play havoc with your credit.

Beware of anything that doesn't seem right,  it is  probably is NOT right.  Listen to your instincts and pay attention!  and Good luck.


"Judy, Judy, Judy!"

One way guaranteed to avoid cyber crime is a thing called "CASH" In fact if your willing to risk travelling without a reservation--- Try traveling in the slow off months and checking in to a ma and pa hotel after 9:00 P.M. and asking what;s the best cash price they can give you? You' will be surprised.

I'm a plan in advance person. Can't travel many miles and hope I find a place. :(

Be adventurous, especially in the off season... especially if your traveling by car...When I met my sister and Marvin when Jason ran cross country we got a motel room in San Simeon Ca. on the beach for $24.00 for the night by coming late and in the off season! The room normally was well over 100.00....
