Back to Basics: What Would Life Look Like If…
Think of how much more enjoyable life would be if those around you lived with your interests in mind. You can’t control how others live, but you can do your part! Take a step back and consider what you might do to look to the interests of others today. Be the one to forgive. Show grace to those who don’t deserve it. Be kind even if the kindness is not returned.

On the Radar – Card Skimmers
What is a card skimmer?
Card skimmers are devices that are placed over or inside of the machines that read the magnetic strip on your credit and debit cards – such as ATM’s and gas pumps.
Thieves place these devices on the machines in order to collect data from your credit/debit card. Once the information is collected, the thieves can clone your card, make online purchases with your card information, or sell your card information to other criminals. Typically, victims are not even aware of the incident until they notice unauthorized charges on their statements or a negative balance in their bank account.
