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...

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...

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...

DEFEND: RECOVER FROM IDENTITY THEFT

If you are a victim of identity theft, take the following four steps as soon as possible, and keep a record with the details of your conversations and copies of all correspondence.

1. Place a fraud alert on your credit reports, and review your credit reports.

Fraud alerts can help prevent an identity thief from opening any more accounts in your name. Contact the toll-free fraud number of any of the three consumer reporting companies below to place a fraud alert on your credit report. You only need to contact one of the three companies to place an alert. The company you call is required to contact the other two, which will place an alert on their versions of your report, too...

DETECT IDENTITY THEFT

Stay alert for the signs of identity theft, like:

  • accounts you didn’t open and debts on your accounts that you can’t explain.
  • fraudulent or inaccurate information on your credit reports, including accounts and personal information, like your Social Security number, address(es), name or initials, and employers.
  • failing to receive bills or other mail. Follow up with creditors if your bills don’t arrive on time. A missing bill could mean an identity thief has taken over your account and changed your billing address to cover his tracks.
  • receiving credit cards that you didn’t apply for.
  • being denied credit, or being offered less favorable credit terms, like a high interest rate, for no apparent reason.
  • getting calls or letters from debt collectors or businesses about merchandise or services y...

DETER: MINIMIZE YOUR RISK

Don’t carry your Social Security card in your wallet or write your Social Security number on a check. Give your Social Security number only when absolutely necessary, and ask to use other types of identifiers. If your state uses your Social Security number as your driver’s license number, ask to substitute another number. Do the same if your health insurance company uses your Social Security number as your policy number.

Your employer and financial institutions will need your Social Security number for wage and tax reporting purposes. Other businesses may ask you for your Social Security number to do a credit check if you are applying for a loan, renting an apartment, or signing up for utilities. Sometimes, however, they simply want your Social Security number for general record keeping...

About Identity Theft

What is identity theft?

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information, like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.

The FTC estimates that as many as 9 million Americans have their identities stolen each year. In fact, you or someone you know may have experienced some form of identity theft.
The crime takes many forms. Identity thieves may rent an apartment, obtain a credit card, or establish a telephone account in your name. You may not find out about the theft until you review your credit report or a credit card statement and notice charges you didn’t make—or until you’re contacted by a debt collector.

Identity theft is serious...
