How to fight Medicare fraud
& protect your identity

Here are 3 things to do:

1. Protect your identity . Identity theft happens when someone uses your personal information without your consent to commit fraud or other crimes. Guide your Medicare Number and card, and keep your Social Security Number safe.

From Construction to Yard Work, Don't Create New Frenemies

Sumer brings us out from the inside to embark on a wide spectrum of projects, from those as simple as trimming the hedges to the more ambitious like replacing the roof. No matter what your plans are for home improvement over the next few months, be sure to take the folks next door into consideration and follow proper safety and etiquette practices, including the following:

1. Provide advanced notice.
2. Don't start too early or end too late.
3. Clean up after yourself.
4. Don't let things stall.


5 Ways to Save While Doing Dishes

Nothing beats a home-cooked meal, but with dinner comes dishes. Use these five tips to save while cleaning up.

1. Use your dishwasher. Did you know that your dishwasher is more efficient than hand washing-both in time and energy used? So you'll actually save by doing less work

2. Scrape dishes. Since you're using the dishwasher, there's no need to rinse ahead of time. Scrape the food off the plate into garbage and load the dishes into the dishwasher.

3. Always run full loads. Speaking of loading them in, always run full loads for maximum efficiently.

4. Select energy-efficient settings. Since all you have to do now is push a few buttons, why not push the ones that wash at low energy settings?

5. Switch to ENERGY STAR. ENERGY STAR® dishwashers use 30 percent less water and 10 percent less energy than standard models.

*Wire Fraud is Real*.  Before wiring any money, call the intended recipient at a number you know is valid to confirm the instructions.

·  Always personally verify wire instructions.

·  Use only phone numbers that have called before or can otherwise verify are legitimate.

·  Be very suspicious of emails and phone calls with purportedly updated, revised or corrected wiring instructions. It is extremely rare that a lawyer or title agent will change wire instructions during the course of a transaction.
