Tip of the week: Pet Safety Tips
As anyone with a furry friend or two can attest, your pets become an integral part of your family. In fact, more than half of American households own a pet, and 70% of those households have a dog.
Oftentimes we may have all of our focus on the human members of our family or the stresses of everyday. This can leave your felines and canines in precarious situations when you leave the house for extended periods.
Thankfully, through a combination of home security advances, pet safety, and basic home preparedness, you can ensure that your pets are happy and healthy whether you are home or not.
Pet Preparedness 101
Before we go into the more advanced methods of keeping your pets safe, it’s important to go through the basics. It can be helpful for people to create a quick checklist to remind themselves to pet-proof their homes before they leave each day.
A few pet safety tips to remember every day include:
- Extinguish any open flame such as your fireplace and any candles
- Keep any items that would cause a choking hazard out of reach
- Remove any food and household items that are toxic to pets (onions, sugar-free chewing gum, lilies, and weed killer to name a few)
- Lock all windows and doors and keep the doggie door latched shut
Tip of the week: Real life lesson learned, Scammed
So this happened: I received an email with my name and one of my passwords in the subject line. And the first words of the email are “Lets get straight to point. Neither anyone has paid me to investigate about you.”
Guess who got the latest sextortion scam email? Yep! Lucky me!
The email goes on to make accusations and to threaten exposing me unless I pay an extortion fee via bitcoin. You can read the text of the email here, as it’s making the rounds and plenty of people have received it. Warning: It’s nasty.
What set this email apart? My password
So it’s a scam. So what, right? Why didn’t I just delete it? Why was it such a big deal to get this email? There were two reasons why this email surprised me: One, I have my spam filter set very high, so I almost never get spam in my inbox. How did this one get past? I don’t know. And two, the subject line included a password that I’ve used a lot and no one would be able to guess. That got my attention right away, believe me!
As soon as I started to read the email, I knew it was a scam, but still: my password! How did they get my password? That’s when I started digging, and learned that more people are paying off these scammers because they see the password and think there might be some validity to the claims made. As Brett M. Christensen at the Hoax-Slayer website says, “The scammers know that if you receive an email that actually includes one of your passwords – even an old one that you no longer use – you may be much more inclined to believe the claims and pay up.”
So again, how did they get my password? When it was stolen as part of a data breach, it turns out.
Has your data been compromised? Find out
One very good lesson was learned with this disgusting email: I found out I could go to https://haveibeenpwned.com and see which data breaches have included my data. I strongly advise you to do this as well. I was shocked to see that my data had been compromised in eight (yes, eight!) different data breaches. That’s where the scammers got my old password.
I reviewed the list and made sure I had updated any necessary passwords or deleted accounts for each of the breaches. Sadly, one was a marketing firm that collects information on people to sell, and there isn’t anything I can do about that—except be annoyed that the information is collected and sold without my knowledge.
