Propane Price Gouging

Santa Fe Classifieds

The Santa Fe New Mexican ran an article by Bob Quick 11/17/08 titled:
‘Cheaper gas, propane bring relief to struggling households’

An excerpt from the article reads: “The price of propane, which closely tracks the price of crude oil, also is down this heating season, falling from $2.69 per gallon to $2.24 per gallon in the last three weeks,
according to Jose Garcia, one of the managers of AAA Gas Service, a propane company.”

I have been curious why propane hasn’t gone down much in Angel Fire. I telephoned a propane provider in Las Vegas NM and their price is $1.99, but they don’t service Angel Fire. So if propane is $2.24 in Santa Fe and $1.99 in Las Vegas, why is propane in Angel Fire $2.44 – $2.99?

A couple months ago, there was a man in Taos who would daily stand at the corner of Hwy 58...

Spam Scams

Some email users have lost money to bogus offers that arrived as spam in their in-box. Con artists are very cunning; they know how to make their claims seem legitimate. Some spam messages ask for your business, others invite you to a website with a detailed pitch. Either way, these tips can help you avoid spam scams:

  • Protect your personal information. Share credit card or other personal information only when you’re buying from a company you know and trust.
  • Know who you’re dealing with. Don’t do business with any company that won’t provide its name, street address, and telephone number.
  • Take your time. Resist any urge to “act now” despite the offer and the terms. Once you turn over your money, you may never get it back.
  • Read the small print...

FILING A COMPLAINT WITH THE FTC

Filing a complaint with the FTC is important for several reasons. First, the information that you enter into the ID Theft Complaint Form can be used as part of an Identity Theft Report, which is an important tool in recovering from identity theft. Read on to find out more about your rights as a victim of identity theft.

Second, when you file an ID Theft Complaint with the FTC, you can help law enforcers catch identity thieves. Your complaint is entered into the FTC’s Identity Theft Data Clearinghouse, which law enforcement officers can search as part of their criminal investigations. (The FTC, however, does not bring criminal cases.) Law enforcement officers who are members of the Clearinghouse may contact you if your case becomes part of their investigation...

P2P File-Sharing

Peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing allows users to share files online through an informal network of computers running the same software. File-sharing can give you access to a wealth of information, but it also has a number of risks. You could download copyright-protected material, pornography, or viruses without meaning to. Or you could mistakenly allow other people to copy files you don’t mean to share.

If you’re considering P2P file-sharing:

  • Install file-sharing software carefully, so that you know what’s being shared.  Changes you make to the default settings of the “save” or “shared” folder might cause you to share folders and subfolders you don’t want to share...

FILING A COMPLAINT WITH THE FTC

Santa Fe Classifieds

Once you’ve filled out, submitted, and printed the FTC’s ID Theft Complaint Form, if you haven’t already filed a police report, you should go to your local police station with a copy of the Complaint Form. You should also continue to take the other steps that victims of ID theft should follow.

What should I bring with me when I go to the police?
When you go to your local police department to file a report, there are several documents that you should bring:

  • A printed copy of your ID Theft Complaint Form;
  • The Law Enforcement Cover Letter;
  • A government-issued identification document, preferably with a photo;
  • Proof of residency (something that shows your address), such as a copy of your phone or utilities bill, your rental agreement, or your payroll stub...

VoIP: Voice over Internet Protocol

Voice over Internet Protocol — VoIP — is a new way to make and receive telephone calls using a broadband Internet connection rather than a regular phone line. A VoIP service may offer unlimited local and long distance calls for a fixed price, as well as features like integrated calls and email, and access to your phone line from many locations. Keep in mind:

  • Some services allow you to use a traditional telephone through an adaptor, but others work only over your computer or a special VoIP phone.
  • Costs include a monthly calling plan as well as a monthly bill for your broadband service.
  • VoIP services don’t have the same access to some services — including the 911 emergency system and directory assistance — as traditional telephone service.
  • If you lose your Internet connecti...

Cross-Border Scams

If you’re using the Internet:

  • Know who you’re dealing with. In any electronic transaction, independently confirm the other party’s name, street address, and telephone number.
  • Resist the urge to enter foreign lotteries. These solicitations are phony and illegal.
  • Delete requests that claim to be from foreign nationals asking you to help transfer their money through your bank account. They’re fraudulent.
  • Ignore unsolicited emails that request your money, credit card or account numbers, or other personal information.
  • If you are selling something over the Internet, don’t accept a potential buyer’s offer to send you a check for more than the purchase price, no matter how tempting the plea or convincing the story. End the transaction immediately if someone insists that you wire back funds.
