    A good friend just had his checking account hacked. Someone cloned his check card and made $7,500 in purchases before the bank called him. He hopes to get the dough back. The card was used at Penney's and Bath, Bed & Beyond. They will be looking for video of the perp hopefully. You really have to be careful anymore.

    Like I tell my Dad,

    NEVER give out username, passwords or account numbers when someone calls you or emails you. Even if you know them. It could be a spoof.

    I've been getting calls about a recent hosiptal stay I had saying there is an outstanding balance on my account and they will foreward me to an automatic payment system. NO WAY!!! Send me a bill.

    Always initiate the payments through a trusted site.
