social media online scamsOnline Social Media Scams! Scammed My Son

After reading this article about hidden charges and scams, it reminded me of when my teenage son clicked on an online social media scams site and signed up for a free service, which he didn’t know that he was going to get billed for.

I noticed my Verizon bill was charged for something that I didn’t request, so I decided to call them about it, they told me someone signed up for a free online service through an online social media scams site and that’s what I’m being billed for.

I told them that I didn’t sign up for anything through an online social media service. After they mentioned the name of the company and told me to call the company about the matter.

I called the company to inquire about my bill, then they told me my son’s name who signed up for the free service. This got me very upset, because I always warned my son about online social media scams and to be very carefully online . . .

I don’t understand why some online services offers free service if they know it’s not really free! This is something we all have to be aware of especially, with so many services being offered with hidden charges . . . But when it says free, it should be FREE! And we still have to be careful about this, since there are so many online social media scams.

Free Online Affiliate Business With Upgrade!

Now you decide you want to join a free online affiliate business, that’s OK! Don’t hesitate to join because it is free, you could actually make money from these sites. You just have to research the site fine prints carefully and decide if it’s the right type of business for you.

Some of these sites offer FREE membership and some offer Free with upgrade. Really, it’s best to upgrade so you could profit more from the business, once you work it well..

Five Online Social Media Scams:

We’re wired to be social creatures, and sites as Twitter and Facebook have capitalized on this to great success. According to Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook draws 175 million logins every day.

1. But with this tremendous popularity comes a dark side as well. Virus writers and other cyber criminals go where the numbers are — and that includes popular social media sites. To help you avoid a con or viral infection, we’ve put together this list of the top five online social media scams.

1. Chain Letters!  Can Also Be Online Social Media Scams
You’ve likely seen this one before — the dreaded chain letter has returned. It may appear in the form of, “Retweet this and Bill Gates will donate $5 million to charity!” But hold on, let’s think about this.

Bill Gates already does a lot for charity. Why would he wait for something like this to take action?

Answer: He wouldn’t…

Both the cause and claim are fake. So why would someone post this? Good question. It could be some prankster looking for a laugh, or a spammer needing “friends” to hit up later. Many well-meaning people passes these fake claim onto others. Break the chain and inform them of the likely reuse.

2. Cash Grabs
By their very nature, social media sites make it easy for us to stay in touch with friends, while reaching out to meet new ones. But how well do you really know these new acquaintances?

That person with the attractive profile picture who just friended you — and suddenly needs money — is probably some cyber criminal looking for easy cash. Think twice before acting. In fact, the same advice applies even if you know the person…
Picture this: You just received an urgent request from one of your real friends who “lost his wallet on vacation and needs some cash to get home.” So, being the helpful person you are, you send some money right away, per his instructions.

But there’s a problem: Your friend never sent this request. In fact, he isn’t even aware of it. His malware-infected computer grabbed all of his contacts and forwarded the bogus email to everyone, waiting to see who would bite…
Again, think before acting. Call your friend. Inform him of the request and see if it’s true. Next, make sure your computer isn’t infected as well.

3. Hidden Charges
“What types of STAR WARS character are you? Find out with our quiz! All of your friends have taken it!” Hmm, this sounds interesting, so you enter your info and cell number, as instructed.

After a few minutes, a text turns up. It turns out. You’re more Yoda than Darth Vader. Well, that’s interesting … but not as much as your next month’s cell bill will be. You’ve also just unwittingly subscribed to some dubious service that charges $9.95 every month.

As it turns out, that “free, fun service” is neither. Be wary of these bait-and-switch games. They tend to thrive on social sites.


4. Phishing Requests! Online Social Media Scams

“Somebody just put up these pictures of you drunk at this wild party! Check ’em out here!” Huh? Let me see that! Immediately, you click on the enclosed link, which takes you to your Twitter or Facebook login page. There, you enter your account info — and a cyber criminal now has your password, along with total control of your account.

How did this happen? Both the email and landing page were fake. That link you clicked took you to a page that looked only like your intended social site. It’s called phishing, and you’ve just been had. To prevent this, make sure your Internet security includes anti phishing defenses.

Many freeware programs don’t include this essential protection. That’s why you should invest and get a good security protection to protect you from Online Social Media Scams

5. Hidden URLs
Beware of blindly clicking on shortened URLs. You’ll see them everywhere on Twitter, but you never know where you’re going to go since the URL (“Uniform Resource Locator,” the Web address) hides the full location.

Clicking on such a link could direct you to your intended site, or one that installs all sorts of malware on your computer.

URL shorteners can be quite useful. Just be aware of their potential pitfalls and make sure you have real-time protection against spyware and viruses

Bottom line: Sites that attract a significant number of visitors are going to lure in a criminal element, too. If you take security precautions ahead of time, such as using antivirus and anti-spyware protection, you can defend yourself against these dangers and surf with confidence.  And you wouldn’t have to worry about signing into an Online Social Media Scams site anymore.

Online Social Media Scams!  You have to be careful when making transactions online.

Do this anywhere, anytime. Push out your bellows and suck air through your nose until your lungs are full. They’ll fill with nitric oxide, a chemical found in the back of your nose that opens up blood vessels. The dose of oxygen will make you feel happier and more alert. This is my secret technique for calming down before a show or a tough stitch in the OR.

B. Continue to drink lots of water! At least half your body weight in Oz.

Homeless Man Uses Flip Cam, YouTube to Spread Awareness

“Homeless Man Uses Flip Cam, YouTube to Spread Awareness

A homeless man in San Francisco is using technology to give the world a new perspective on homelessness. This homeless man name is Henry Moses Thirkield, affectionately known as Mo, and he’s been using a Flip Cam to document his day-to-day activities and his interviews with other homeless men and women.

How Mo the Homeless Man Got Help!

Mo doesn’t have access to a computer or a cellphone, so he’s unable to post videos online himself. His friend Ryan Hupfer, who works at a Silicon Valley startup, gave Mo the Flip Cam and set up the YouTube channel, HomelessMo.

“We [met when we] ran into each other in the San Francisco Caltrain station when I was coming back home from work one day,” Hupfer told Mashable. “He asked for money and cigarettes, but I was getting ready to grab a Subway sandwich, so I offered him something to eat instead.”

The two kept running into each other, and they became friends thereafter. Hupfer has given friends cameras in the past to share their stories, and he figured doing the same for Mo would yield the same result — almost allowing viewers to put themselves in his shoes.

Wonder How The Homeless Man Mo Got His Content Distributed?

“He creates the content and I edit and distribute, and it’s really worked out well so far,” Hupfer said. “I try my best to tell his story, and if anyone emails, I say that I’m posting on his behalf. One of these days I’ll get him on [the Internet], but that’s going to take some time.”

SEE ALSO: Homeless People Start Tweeting in New Awareness Initiative Using the Flip Cam, Mo is able to give the rest of the world an idea of what it’s like to live on the streets of San Francisco. In a video posted on Monday, Mo gave another homeless man a snippet of his background:

“I’ve been homeless for almost four years now,” Mo says in the video, behind the camera. “I’ve slept under the bridge at Fourth and King over here, and I had to learn how to survive out here because I worked all my life. I didn’t know what it was [like] sleeping next to someone you don’t know, or ‘sleeping with the rats,’ as we call it.”

Hupfer says Mo is in his late 50s and is originally from Chicago. He used to sell drugs in San Francisco before he was imprisoned for selling a pill to an undercover police officer. He’s been homeless ever since he was released.

You can now learn about Mo’s stories on platforms other than YouTube. Hupfer set up a Facebook page for Mo and a WePay campaign for anyone who wants to donate money.

On Facebook, Hupfer shares Mo’s thoughts and status updates. One post from Sunday reads, “I got a gun pulled on me tonight … for $16. A good reminder that I’m still on the streets, but I know with all of your help it’s only going to get better. I don’t think I could do it without all of you pulling for me.”

Hupfer has been been using MailChimp to send updates to everyone who has given money to Mo via WePay, and in order to maintain transparency and openness, he created a Google doc for all of the donors that shows how much money Mo has raised, how much he has left and what he’s spending it on.

“We’ve raised close to $1,500 right now, which isn’t a lot, but that’s enough to keep Mo fed and off the streets for almost three months,” Hupfer said.

Mo told Mashable through Hupfer that his main goals are to get off of parole, get a job and eventually be able to give back to others who are in similar situations and support programs that already do. He also mentioned speaking to younger people about his story and doing his best to keep people from getting into his situation in the first place.

As far as what he wants the world to learn, he said, “That no matter who the homeless person is, they’re all human beings, not just some animals that should be ignored and they should never be treated that way. Get to know a homeless person’s story and you’ll start to realize that they’re not that different from anyone else.”

Original Re-Post

I choose this article because it relates to David Wood & Dave Sharpe homeless story.

This article is an interesting story. It would be nice to show this homeless man how he could improve his lifestyle. How this once homeless ‘van man’ and ex-construction worker discovered this lucrative solution to the complicated online marketing world.

How they launched their Empower Network business a few months ago and have became the big BUZZ online, on social media sites with thousands of people joining their business and making 100% Commissions from working their business.

Mosses also known as Mo has been a homeless man for 4 years.
Mo interviews Homeless Man Andrew who has been homeless for a few weeks.
