    Medicare card scam asks for bank, Social Security information

    “Do I have a scam for you!”

    That was one of the phone messages waiting for me when I arrived for work one morning last month, the day after we published my Sunday column announcing the introduction of our new weekly feature, “Scam of the Week” (July 28: “Under siege by scammers? Tell us about it”).

    Sure, I thought to myself, ever the skeptical journalist. That’s what they are all going to say.

    As it turns out, the caller wasn’t exaggerating. Not only that, but she was one of two people to contact us that day about this blatant telephone scam aimed at older folks on Medicare – one that not so coincidentally has prompted renewed warnings of late from regional Better Business Bureaus across the country.

    Several weeks ago, Johannah Miller of Albuquerque received a telephone call from a man who claimed to be responsible for sending out new Medicare cards.

    According to Miller, the conversation went something like this:

    Caller : Is this Johannah Miller?

    Miller : Yes.

    Caller : I’m calling from Washington, D.C., and we are going to be issuing a new Medicare card. Do you live at …

    Miller : Yes.

    Caller : What’s the name of your bank?

    Miller : Why don’t you tell me?

    Caller : I’m here to verify information from you; you’re not to verify information from me.

    Miller : You know, this sounds like a scam.

    Caller : (Click).

    End of story? Not so fast.

    The next day, she says, ...

  • Abruptly shut down of Lavabit email service

    Communication, Communication Design


    The email service reportedly used by surveillance whistleblower Edward Snowden abruptly shut down on Thursday after its owner cryptically announced his refusal to become "complicit in crimes against the American people."

    Lavabit, an email service that boasted of its security features and claimed 350,000 customers, is no more, apparently after rejecting a court order for cooperation with the US government to participate in surveillance on its customers. It is the first such company known to have shuttered rather than comply with government surveillance. Silent Circle, another provider of secure online services, announced on later Thursday night that it would scrap its own encrypted email offering, Silent Mail.

    The founder of Lavabait, Ladar Levison, wrote on the company's website: "I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit." The news was firstreported by Xeni Jardin the popular news site Boing Boing.

    Levison said government-imposed restrictions prevented him from explaining what exactly led to his company's crisis point. I feel you deserve to know what's going on – the first amendment is supposed to guarantee me the freedom to speak out in situations like this," Levison wrote. "Unfortunately, Congress has passed laws that say otherwise. As things currently stand, I cannot share my experiences over the...

  • Consumer: Warning issued on free online trials

    Community, Communication Design


    Complaints are soaring over so-called ‘free trials’ on websites. Laura Bowyer reports.

    The chances are if something looks too good to be true then it probably is. But so-called free offers are proving to be costly mistakes for internet shoppers.

    That’s the warning issued by West Yorkshire Trading Standards.

    The watchdog has received a large number of complaints from internet shoppers who have been tempted by online “free trials”.

    Whether it’s beauty treatments, slimming products or health products, shoppers believe they are bagging so-called “free” products when visiting certain websites.

    The lure of a free product often sees consumers entering their bank details into websites to pay a small fee for postage and packing for what they perceive to be a bargain buy.

    But shoppers are finding themselves in for a surprise after unwittingly entering into a monthly subscription contract.

    It isn’t until consumers scan through their bank statements that they have discover larger amounts of cash are being withdrawn from their accounts without their knowledge.

    West Yorkshire Trading Standards says that some consumers are forking out nearly £70 per month for a service they are not fully aware of.

    What these shoppers didn’t realise was that hidden in the terms and conditions of the website they had unwittingly agreed to a monthly subscription contract...
