Just added Identity Theft page

Since Identity Theft has become a hot topic, in the last few years, I figured I would add a reference page to the blog to help you out.  I will update it as I find more information.

Credit cards at Target and FTC website

I am assuming that everyone that reads this heard about Target and potentially the credit and debit cards that were used on Black Friday until 15 December 2013 have been hacked.

An email I received from the FTC websites says ALL credit and debit cards used were potentially affected.

And, everyone should review their statements in the future to watch for suspicious charges.

The law requires the three nationwide consumer reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — to give you a free copy of your credit report every 12 months if you ask for it. To get your report, visitAnnualCreditReport.com or call 1-877-322-8228.

Pet Poison Helplines and websites

Did you know there was a Pet Poison Helplines and websites?   I didn’t until a local vet clinic listed a phone number in a recent article.  When I did a Google search to verify the phone number I actually found two phone numbers and websites:

Animal Poison Control (ASPCA)    888-426-4435

http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control

and

24/7 Animal Poison Control Center          800-213-6680

http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/

Each website also has a list of Pet Poisons that can be searched and more useful information.

This definitely sites that I will bookmarking and I already added the phone numbers to my cell phone.
