Not Even John Roberts Can Escape Credit-Card Fraud

It’s possible that someone in Kentucky has been buying stuff with John Roberts’s credit card.

The Supreme Court’s chief justice has been traipsing around Washington, D.C., bemoaning to metro-area counter-workers that his credit-card info has been stolen, and that he now has to use cash.

First, it was a Starbucks barista, where Roberts stopped for coffee in suburban Maryland on Tuesday, before he heard arguments on California’s Prop. 8 gay-marriage ban. Roberts typically uses a card, but a Starbucks employee told The Washington Post that Roberts, this time mentioned the apparent identity theft, after paying cash….

If the Chief Justice Can Be an Identity Theft Victim, Is Anyone Safe?

by Matt Brownell, Mar 29th 2013 3:30PM

Confirmation Hearings Begin In The Senate For John Roberts

No one is safe from identity theft — not even John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

On the morning that the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments about gay marriage, Roberts was overheard telling a barista at his local Starbucks that he would have to pay cash for his coffee, as his credit card information had been stolen. The Associated Press spoke to a Supreme Court spokesperson, who confirmed that someone got hold of one of the Chief Justice’s credit card account numbers. Apparently that meant that Roberts had to use cash while he waited for a new card from the bank.

Supreme Court Justices: They’re just like us!

Roberts isn’t the first high-profile Washington figure to become the victim of identity theft lately — earlier this month, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the director of the FBI all had their credit reports stolen and posted to a Russian website. Celebrities including Beyonce Knowles were also affected……

It is important that Americans understand how to deal with identity theft issues most effectively.  It is very important to have as many of your key identification numbers monitored for activity as possible. You need to know as quickly as possible if your and that of your spouse…and especially your children…is being violated. Then you need to have the assurance of professional investigators, who understand the ways of correcting your problems, take charge of restoring your identity as quickly as possible. Be very cautious of any identity theft program that requires that you restore your own identity, no matter how much reimbursement, as restoration can take years even if you know what you are doing. Be advised that the LegalShield/Kroll Investigation Services identity theft shield to my knowledge is the only company that provides restoration services for your identity.  You can learn more about these services by picking on the banner below…

Think you’re not at risk? Unfortunately, you are. Identity Theft Shield click here!

12 million people were victims of identity theft in 2012. Don’t wait until it happens to you. Get Peace of Mind today. Get protection before the event can happen and you are covered for restoration. Restoration coverage after it happens is a different situation. Be prepared for identity theft!

Today’s Entrepeneur - An Excellent Compensation Plan

[color-box]
As many entrepreneurs begin their entry into the world of “working from home” and “starting their own businesses”, thoughts about their products and services compensation plan is not a major consideration. This can be a major pitfall for many…that is…understanding their compensation plan and how it works. Most in the working world are accustomed to salaries, or hourly compensation, or salary plus commission with bonuses.  Beware, the compensation plans of many business opportunities are not very easy to understand, and many have awakened 2-3 years later after investing a lot of time and money. to learn some very disheartening financial situations. A word to the wise is that it is very important to understand your compensation plan…is it designed to provide an equal income opportunity for everyone or just for a limited number at certain levels in the organization…and is the situation time sensitive…must you be there to begin with to be successful? If so, what about the people who you bring in later when the comp is not so good….will they stick around?

I very much like the compensation plan of LegalShield. So does Robert Kiyosaki as he has made strong positive comments about it. Many, many others love this compensation plan as it offers an incredible opportunity to achieve financial independence, not overnight, but with much work and much effort it is highly probable. This company is a direct sales company with a network marketing component. It is not an MLM company. The graphic structure of our company is shown below…just like any business or family or government organization. With our compensation plan some earn large six figure incomes just selling our product while others build geometrically with their organizations…and most do both. Further, there is a strong residual component that belongs to you only, and ongoing income streams can be willed two generations deep in your family…that is to your grandchildren. And there are three additional ways to earn income based on performance. And you can begin this part-time or full-time.

NWM-top down

As you consider how you are going to achieve financial independence with whatever opportunity you choose you will be very smart to completely understand and know the strengths and weaknesses of the compensation plan that will be yours. I cannot overemphasize the importance of this key aspect of building your own business.

Florida Is The State Where You’re Most Likely To Get Scammed, FTC Report Finds

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted: 02/27/2013 12:08 pm EST  |  Updated: 02/27/2013 12:32 pm EST

Most people know Florida as the home of Disney World, sandy beaches and senior citizens enjoying their retirement. But Florida has another, more unsavory distinction: It’s the state where you’re most likely to get scammed.

Florida has the highest rate of fraud and identity theft complaints per capita, according to the Federal Trade Commission’s 2012 report of annual complaints. And you’re at risk of getting your identity stolen almost anywhere in the state, nine out of the top 10 metropolitan areas for identity theft complaints are in Florida, the report found.

The situation is especially bad in South Florida, which has been the nation’s identity theft leader since 2010, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The number of identity theft complaints more than doubled in the region between 2011 and 2012.

IRS Apologizes for $60,000 Star Trek Parody

The Internal Revenue Service got chewed out by Congress for wasting taxpayer money on a
couple of videos made for a training and leadership conference in 2010. One was a parody of
Gilligan’s Island, but most of the $60,000 spent was for a Star Trek parody that “does not appear to
have any training value.”

Frivolous and Lawsuits Have New Bed Partner: Useless

By consumerist.com May 31, 2006

Yay! Free money. Clampants got a card in the mail yesterday from the “Benny/Lundberg Settlement” against Sprint, reading:

“You have been identified as a potential member of a Class Action brought by current and former customers of Sprint branded wireless telephone service that will be settling claims.”

While he was a Sprint member before switching over to Cingular, Clampants is less than jumping out of his rollie chair to sign up. Possible benefits pending his participation include a $2.50 long-distance card, or a series of eight quarterly credits totaling no more than $7.

If he doesn’t want to wait that long, he could also get an immediate credit of $15. However, to do so, he’ll have to sign a new two-year contract with Sprint.

Consider these solutions…

LegalShield and Kroll Investigative Services Identity Theft Solutions

I sincerely recommend that you protect yourself for identity theft, including your children, and when you do so, be sure to look for an identity theft package that does not just mail you the do-it-yourself forms for you to correct the issue, but includes their own staff of licensed investigators using power of attorneys and working with very reputable provider attorney firms. This is quite different from you doing the work and requesting reimbursement after the work is completed. In many cases you will not qualify for reimbursement from an insurance policy that has exclusions.

To protect  yourself and your loved ones, including your children,  with the LegalShield and Kroll Investigative Services Identity Theft Shield protective memberships you can sign up for and begin these memberships now at…

DO YOU NEED A LAWYER? DO YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY? NEED A CONSULTANT?

NOW OR IN THE FUTURE?

For whatever the reasons today you decided that you really “need a lawyer” or that you “need an attorney”! The situations that you face require that you have the services of a professional legal representative…even though you have tried to avoid this in many ways and maybe for a good bit of time. Now that you have made this decision you are concerned about the following…as you have not used a lawyer ever or for a long time. Or it could be that you want to protect yourself against this letigious society and you want an ongoing team of attorneys on retainer at any time for your call.  These are key considerations that should lead you to obtaining a very affordadle monthly legal plan membership.

1. How much is a lawyer or attorney going to cost me? per hour? for a retainer? to solve my issues that may take a long time??

2. Can I afford the lawyer or the attorney?

3. How can I find a lawyer or an attorney that is qualified to handle my case? I  do not know any attorneys.

4. Can I trust the lawyer or attorney that I find to minimize my costs so that I can afford to solve these issues legally and economically? How will I know that?

5. Should I just forget the legal issues and let the other party have their way? What if I just want good legal advice to understand what my rights are on any subject? How can I obtain that?

All of these are valid questions.

I encourage you to check out potential affordable solutions. Just click on the following…

Lawsuit abuse is having a devastating impact on our society

Lawsuit abuse is having a devastating impact on our society.

This week I learned of the following website called Faces of Lawsuit Abuse.org which is truly displaying the faces of many who have been shocked by abusive lawsuits. I invite you to visit both their website and their Facebook page to become aware of the awful results of what so many people are facing.

At its peak, Blitz USA, the 50-year-old producer of three out of every four portable gas cans nationwide, employed 350 people in the small town of Miami, Oklahoma. But over the last decade, a wave of costly litigation took its toll, and lawsuits finally drove the company out of business…

Three-quarters of all small business owners in America are concerned they might be the target of a frivolous or unfair lawsuit. Of those who are most concerned, six in ten say the fear of lawsuits makes them feel more constrained in making business decisions generally, and 54 percent say lawsuits or the threat of lawsuits forced them to make decisions they otherwise would not have made.

The Legal Needs of American Families - Newly Released White Papers

New Study Shows Need, Demand for Legal Services By Working Americans and Families

Study Identifies Cost and Confusion as Barriers to Getting Needed Legal Help

PR Newswire

DALLAS, Nov. 27, 2012

A new nationwide study released today by LegalShield shows that working Americans and

Study Identifies Cost and Confusion as Barriers to Getting Needed Legal Help

Study Identifies Cost and Confusion as Barriers to Getting Needed Legal Help

their families face a broad array of legal issues daily but only infrequently seek out help due to the cost, confusion and hassle of dealing with the legal system.  Even for serious legal events such as divorce, IRS audits, DWI/DUI arrests, real estate purchase, identity theft, or the death of a spouse without a will, an alarming number of Americans are forgoing the legal help they need to protect themselves and their families.

The survey shows 57 million of full-time working Americans experienced at least one significant legal event in the past 12 months, but only 60 percent of those who experienced such an event actually sought out the services of a lawyer to help them.  The rest said they were “hesitant” or “dread” calling a lawyer because they are too hard to find, cost too much and are “difficult” and “intimidating” to work with.

“Our research shows what we’ve known intuitively for a long time – many Americans don’t believe they can get the legal help they need to protect themselves and their families,” said Rip Mason, CEO of LegalShield.  “Too many people believe they have to go at it alone and hope for the best when it comes to dealing with all but the most serious legal issues.  Fortunately, that’s not the case.  Americans just need to become more aware of the options – such as a LegalShield plan – that guarantees they have access to help from qualified attorneys no matter how serious or trivial the issue.”

The survey findings show that when barriers to access and cost are removed or reduced, Americans are more likely seek out the counsel of an attorney.  Ninety-one percent of respondents said they would seek the help of a lawyer for even the most trivial issue – such as the review of a rental agreement – if their services were easier to access and more affordable.  Two-thirds of respondents said they found their lawyer randomly online or through some sort of advertising and had little information about their qualifications or experience.  They also said they paid an average of $284 an hour for the services of a lawyer.

“It’s not that American’s don’t believe that they need legal help, they’re just not sure that the benefit outweighs the cost or the hassle,” Mason said.  “That why it’s important to remove the negative cost/benefit assumption from the equation.  With LegalShield, members pay as little as $17 a month to get unlimited access to dedicated accomplished law firms who are staffed with experienced lawyers specializing in the areas of law that impact American families the most.”

Despite the benefits of legal plans such as LegalShield, only 10 percent of respondents said they are covered by any sort of legal service program.

“More and more employers are looking at legal plans as part of their voluntary benefits package. They see it as a way to address absenteeism associated with the legal problem employees experience in their lives,” Mason said.  “Our study showed that 66 percent of workers who experienced a legal issue had to take time off from work to deal with it.  The survey also shows that employees who were covered by a legal protection plan are happier, have greater peace of mind and are more focused on their work.

Methodology
This study of full-time employees in the U.S. was conducted over the Internet.  A national probability sample of males and females aged 18 to 64 was drawn from American Consumer Opinion® Online, Decision Analyst’s worldwide panel of over eight million consumers.  The sample was balanced by geography and selected demographics, such as gender, age, ethnicity, and household income.  Panelists were invited by email to the screening survey, and those employed full-time were invited to Decision Analyst’s DAISurvey™ website to participate in the study.  A total of 1,000 interviews were completed online from September 20 through September 26, 2012.

Identity Theft

Identity Theft of Social Security Card

Identity Theft of Social Security Numbers

ID Theft: Restoration is key solution now…28 million of 290 million social security numbers violated!


Just released is a video by Fox News that nails the ID Theft situation! You will need to pick on the first URL below  in order to watch the video. Listen to what this expert says about restoration, how many people have their social security numbers compromised…1 in 7….and the government will not tell you about this.. so you must find out about your identity status for yourself…this means you must be proactive in the protection of your identity. 

————————————————————————————————-

The following is excellent journalistic reporting by Michael Isikoff of NBC: See the link.

One email exposes millions of people to data theft in South Carolina cyberattack

I very much like Michael Isikoff’s thorough work on Open Channel Investigative reporting from NBC News and msnbc.com

One email exposes millions of people to data theft in South Carolina cyberattack
  • If your identity is stolen and restoration is the only acceptable solution for you…which it probably is…who will do the restoration work? Must you do the many hours of work over unknown geography and with many parties or would you prefer that licensed investigators take on your case working with attorneys and do the work for you? If you choose the licensed investigator approach, you can continue your lifestyle and work without interruption while professionals solve the issues on your behalf. Otherwise you may be signing up for thousands of hours of restoration work yourself, hopefully to be reimbursed.
  • Some identity theft protection firms will mail you the restoration forms for you to do the restoration work, you make the phone calls and travel yourself at your own expense…while some  provide reimbursement insurance for some of your losses, however may impose limitations and exclusions for types of losses and may not cover all the several major types of identity theft.  This article is intended to inform you of the differences between restoration by licensed investigative professionals or restoration by a do-it-yourself plan that may take you years of work and on trips requiring thousands of miles of travel, and many, many phone calls.  The question is… can you afford the time and money to enter into a do-it-yourself restoration plan? Most people wanting to protect themselves from identity theft do not know of the licensed restoration professionals solution.
  • I suggest that you need to inform yourself and your friends that there is an alternative which is much preferred by those who have been informed about the differences.  Once someone’s identity has been stolen, the preferable solution is restoration to the original status before the theft. This includes credit positions, positions with banks, drivers licenses, social security numbers, medicare records, medical records, and with the many agencies that have your data. Very few people are aware that preventing identity theft is virtually impossible.  Even more do not realize what courses of action must be taken once their identity has been stolen. Very few people realize that in order to restore your identity that it will take many hours and typically years of effort to contact all of the parties that have your identity data that may have been negatively impacted. Do you know in how many digital data bases your personal identity resides? And in what locations, companies, government agencies, hospitals, employers, stores, suppliers could your data be located?Do you have access?
ID Theft Drivers License

Identity Theft of Drivers License

  • Again, I sincerely recommend that you protect yourself for identity theft, including your children, and when you do so, be sure to look for an identity theft package that does not just mail you the do-it-yourself forms for you to correct the issue, but includes their own staff of licensed investigators using power of attorneys and working with very reputable provider attorney firms. This is quite different from you doing the work and requesting reimbursement after the work is completed. In many cases you may not qualify for reimbursement.
