How to Recognize When You’re Being Deceived on Your First Date by Vivienne Diane Neal


Image by 1820796 from Pixabay

When a person shows you who he is, believe him the first time; don’t be fooled by his drop-dead gorgeous features, his way with words, and his dress to kill apparel, and the first topic of discussion is money. However, you ignore this sign because it’s love at first sight, and you want to see him again.

On the second date, you are slowly being played by a master manipulator. He invites you to his place for dinner and will make you a memorable meal. The food is most likely frozen dinners, and all he has to do is heat it and serve it. And this where you should you recognize that this relationship is doomed right from the start when he gives you a sob story that he lost his job and will ask if you could lend him money to help pay his rent until he finds another job.

Yet, the biggest shocker is when he asks you to co-sign for a car after knowing him for only one month. You give him the money because you feel sorry for him, have fallen hard for the man and see the two of you living happily ever after. But when you ask for the money back several weeks later, he tells you the monies were gifts. This means you will never see your money unless you take him to court; if you didn’t have him sign a promissory note, most likely you can say goodbye to your money unless you receive a text message saying he borrowed or owes you the money. He will never admit he owes you any money.

Now, this is where the con artist can trip himself up when he refuses to reply to your text messages, demanding he pays you back. Most judges will ask, “If this was a gift, why didn’t you reply to the woman’s message and say, “I don’t know what you’re talking about; the monies were gifts.” This doesn’t mean the borrower is completely off the hook. So make certain you save all messages sent to the borrower as evidence if you decide to take him to civil court. Or better yet, have him sign a promissory note before the cash leaves your hand; it doesn’t have to be formal. You can write it on a piece of toilet paper and make certain you both sign the note. If he refuses to sign the IOUs, you will never see him again.

Tips For Couples When Choosing A Mattress by McKenzie Dillon


Choosing a mattress you’ll love for the next 8+ years can be stressful enough, let alone finding one to accommodate two people. When couples are in search of their perfect mattress, you want to make sure you follow these three rules so you make sure neither you, nor your significant other is sacrificing any sleep. 

1.) Find An Appropriate Firmness Level
You always want to take your sleeper type into consideration when you’re shopping for a new mattress, and it isn’t any different when you’re searching for a mattress to share with a loved one. If you and your partner have the same sleeper type, you’re in luck — you just have to find something that caters to your sleeping position. 

Side sleepers should consider something soft to cradle their pressure points, while back and stomach sleepers will sleep more comfortably on a firmer mattress that keeps their spine in neutral alignment. Combo sleepers can either choose a firmness level based on their dominant sleeping position, or go for something in the middle.

If you have a different sleeper type than your partner, which is highly likely, try to do what combo sleepers do and find something around a “medium” firmness level. They tend to be the sweet spot between supportive, but also pressure relieving. Keep in mind, there are plenty of mail order mattresses online that come with free trial periods, so you can return your bed and get 100% of your money back if you or your significant other don’t your new bed. 

2.) Make Sure It Has Good Edge Support
Another key bed characteristic a couple should look for in a mattress is good edge support. If you don’t know what edge support is — think back on a time where you were pushed to the edge of the mattress because of your bed hogging significant other. Did it feel like you were going to roll off the side, or did it feel sturdy and supportive? Hopefully it was the latter, which means the bed had good edge support. The entire perimeter of the mattress should feel supportive enough to comfortably lay on the very edge, especially if you’re looking to share a queen or full size bed.

3.) Look For A Mattress That Isolates Motion 
When a mattress has good motion isolation, you shouldn’t feel or be jolted awake every time your partner gets up in the middle of the night to sneak a late-night snack or to use the bathroom. If you share a bed with a partner, all-foam beds tend to do a better job than hybrid mattresses at isolating motion since they do not have any bounce from coils.

Protecting Your Online Accounts from Credential Stuffing Threats

Image by Pete Linforth from Pixabay

When the holidays draw near, you can be sure cyber threats are not far behind, one of them being “Credential Stuffing,” which has emerged as a leading cyber threat against your financial, retail, social media and email accounts.

“Credential Stuffing” is a method used by cybercriminals to try to gain unauthorized access to your digital accounts. By using lists of stolen user names and passwords from previous data breaches, cybercriminals randomly attempt to log into websites and social media accounts in the hopes that individuals will set up those same user names and passwords for some of their other online accounts.

This threat is real and it is on the rise. It works because many people do not follow best practices when creating login credentials.

You can minimize your risk of becoming a victim of “Credential Stuffing” by doing the following:

·       Choose different user IDs and strong passwords for your online accounts.
·       Change your passwords regularly.
·       Never reuse IDs or passwords across your online accounts.
·       Don’t use your email address as your user ID.
·       Avoid using easy, guessable passwords; try substituting special characters or numbers for certain letters.
·       Never utilize your Facebook login to access financial websites.
·       Never use the same password for your online and social media accounts.
·       Never respond to phone, email or text requests for personal or confidential information.
