2725Safety watchdogs have warned of the dangers of Ikea chests of drawers and wardrobes after two children were killed when they fell on to them.

The Swedish furniture giant is offering a free kit to help consumers do that. The kit will be available to consumers who bought 27m of the furniture items above specific heights, including seven million of the Malm chests.

Consumer Alert: Cyber Security Safety Tips

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The National Cyber Security Alliance is reporting that 84 percent of Americans feel the need to protect their personal information. From the sudden awareness of hacking incidents involving cars to a person’s identity, the Florida Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) is reminding Florida residents to learn more about cyber security with a few tips: Stop: Personal information is like money — value it. Protect it. Do not share online account access with anyone who is not a joint owner of the account, and never share personal account passwords with anyone. Take time to learn the risks and ways to spot potential problems. One common way to protect your personal information is to keep your passwords strong and safe by regularly changing them and never using the same password for multiple accounts online. It is also important to use trusted vendors at all times, and regularly perform virus scans on your computer system using up-to-date security software. Think: Share with care — what you post online can last a lifetime. Consider how your actions online can affect you and your family’s safety. Connect: Demand privacy — you deserve it. Enjoy the internet confidently knowing that you are aware and prepared to […]

Be alert for child-predator email scam

A new email preying on parents’ fears that a sex offender might be living next door is the latest scam to prompt a warning from consumer advocates.

The email’s subject line reads “Alert: There is a Child-Predator Living Near You!” and it claims to be a notification specific to the recipient’s ZIP code, according to the Better Business Bureau.

In an interesting twist, though, clicking on the email’s Web link for more information reroutes you through several websites before landing on the Kids Live Safe site.

Kids Live Safe is a legitimate Web service that sells localized reports on registered sex offenders.

The independent freight forwarder sector appears to have become the latest victim of internet crime, with several cases of international payments between forwarders being redirected into fraudsters’ accounts. Over $100,000 has been stolen from WCA members in a series of stings over the past nine months, according to WCA vice-president of customer service Andy Robins. WCA, the world’s largest network of independent freight forwarders, with over 5,000 members across the world, has monitored an alarming increase in the number of forwarders targeted, although Mr Robins believed that the fraudsters’ modus operandi has largely been established and he told The Loadstar that forwarders need to be especially vigilant if their international partner claims to have changed bank account details during the payment process. “There’s a hacker out there watching freight forwarders and getting into the negotiations at the last moment. “The pattern seems to be that they will hack into an email conversation between two members, and then, at the last minute when a payment is due to be made, they block the emails of the recipient of the funds and instead email the agent who is due to pay and informs them of a change of bank details which the […]
