Fraud and Scams

Every so often we get calls regarding fraud and scams.  Unfortunately, there are more scams every day and the crooks get creative with their tactics.   Sometimes it's phone call from a relative that claims to be in jail or trouble or it may be an email you get asking you to do something about an account you may or may not have.  Usually the calls and emails are phony.

Double check with your relative or banks or businesses you deal with to confirm if the call or email is real..... most often it's not.

Here is a link to the FBI that lists several of the most often seen scams.

Phishing is another way to scam you-  it may be a webpage that presents itself to be legitimate- it's not.  Or you may get an email with a link to a phony or deceptive page. Tip- double check the web address and read the page carefully.    Here is a link to explain-

New Disaster Preparedness App

Disaster Preparedness Starts With You
Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan in advance: how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different disaster situations.
The SD Emergency App contains disaster preparedness information, interactive checklists to help you to create your emergency plan, build an emergency supplies kit, and when disaster strikes; the SD Emergency App will keep you and your family informed with emergency updates, interactive emergency maps, and shelter locations.  
The County of San Diego Office of Emergency Services (OES) created the SD Emergency App to better prepare and inform San Diego County residents and visitors about disasters.  With SD Emergency, the tools you need to plan, prepare, and respond in an emergency are right at your fingertips.

Cyber Monday and Holiday Safety Tips

From our friends at the Sheriff's Department:

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department works hard during the Holiday season to make sure you don't end up doing the criminals' Christmas shopping.

You can also help not to become a victim this Holiday season by following our tips. REMEMBER: Theft is a crime of OPPORTUNITY. Don't give crooks the OPPORTUNITY to steal your items. LOCK your vehicles at all times. DON'T leave valuables in sight; ideally, don't leave them in your vehicle AT ALL, especially purses and wallets. If you do, you just might be footing the bill for someone's gift list!









People are increasingly avoiding the stampeding crowds on Black Friday and are now opting to shop online, behind the safety of a laptop or smartphone.

What they don’t realize is that shopping online comes with its own hazards. Criminals are out there to steal your information and use it to shop for their own gift lists.

To ensure that your holiday season isn’t ruined by theft or identity fraud, read our tips on Cyber Monday Safety.

Burglary Information

We have had a couple of burglaries reported to us that have occurred at night-  while people are at home.  In two cases, there was no loss.  An active alarm scared off the suspect.   Fortunately, no one has been confronted or has seen the suspect. 

The suspect was able to open an unlocked window to get in.   Screens are not a deterrent to entry.  Please take the time to lock your windows and turn your alarm systems on.  If your alarm goes off while you are at home, communicate immediately to your alarm company and to us.  if you think someone set off the alarm, call 911.  Simply using the alarm and locks you have will be a good deterrent.  Exterior motion lights and leaving a couple inside lights on makes the crooks think twice if someone is home. 

If you see any strangers or vehicles, please give us a call.  If you think someone is on your property, call 911.
