Sharing is Caring.
If I learn something, or I get something from someone, this is the place where I would like to share with YOU!
Almost everyday we get some emails that are forwarded by friends or family. They are fun to read and sometimes have good stories- true or false- or good info. Sometimes they have links to nice videos.
This blog is going to be a storage for such emails! Feel free to subscribe to this blog if you like.

FW: IMPORTANT INFORMATION
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
Jury Duty Scam DO NOT DELETE WITHOUT READING ! Pass this on to your grown children. This has been verified by theFBI(their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in youremail address book. It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on theircivic duty, that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator.. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for yourSocial Security numberand date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel thearrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo; your identity was just stolen. The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma, Illinois , and Colorado
This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they are with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.
