    BILLIONS of WhatsApp users have been urged to secure their accounts. Cyber-experts have warned The Sun over a rise in hack and scam attempts over Xmas – so locking down your WhatsApp is a high priority. 1WhatsApp users are being urged to secure their accounts with two-step verificationCredit: WhatsApp WhatsApp users are regularly targeted by hackers who use clever social engineering to take over accounts. Some fraudsters even pose as family members to enter your WhatsApp account. Once they're in, these tricksters can impersonate you and go on to hack your friends and family. "It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that hackers become more daring and sneakier over the holiday period," said Steven Hope, co-founder of Authlogics, speaking to The Sun. "It makes sense – organisations and consumers alike tend to let their guard down to celebrate with family and friends, often leaving their accounts unsecured and vulnerable to breach."

    Supporters of the violent, extremist Antifa movement are already attempting to exploit Twitter’s new ban on the sharing of private photos to stop people sharing mugshots of far-left activists who have been arrested for engaging in violence, looting, and other acts of thuggery. Antifa-supporting Twitter accounts are attempting to have independent journalist Andy Ngo, an editor at the Post Millennial, banned from the platform. Antifa Supporters target Andy Ngo on Twitter Ngo was hospitalized after a brutal Antifa attack in 2020, and was again violently assaulted by members of the extremist movement, who regularly call for him to be killed. Antifa targets Ngo because he does not self-censor his reporting on protest movements to obscure acts of violence and criminality by Antifa. Ngo regularly posts news stories about Antifa members who have been arrested, including their mugshots, which are publicly available.

              more   A former employee of a Rhea County-based nonprofit allegedly used nearly $12,000 of taxpayer money on himself. This, according to a report that Tennessee Comptrollers published this week. That man, Reynaldo Rivera, worked as a maintenance technician for the Dayton-based Rhea of Sunshine (ROS), Inc. ROS assists people with disabilities. ROS is primarily funded by the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD), according to the comptrollers’ report. Comptrollers reported that Rivera allegedly used ROS money to buy vehicle parts for his personal use totaling at least $11,871. “Rivera engaged in a fraudulent purchasing scheme where he obtained vehicle parts using ROS’s O’Reilly Auto Parts and Advance Auto Parts vendor accounts and used the parts for his personal vehicles and for his private automotive repair business,” comptrollers reported. “Rivera used ROS’s vendor accounts to purchase vehicle parts for vehicles that were not in ROS’s fleet. For instance, Rivera purchased multiple parts for a Chevrolet El Camino, which he was personally restoring.” Comptrollers said Rivera falsified invoices to carry out his alleged scheme. Rivera allegedly wrote ROS vehicle...
    Couples who have joint bank accounts are more likely to stay together because they don’t fall out about money as much, a study claims. Researchers found that those who did not pool their earnings and kept their finances separate were at far greater risk of ruining their relationship in money rows – especially when times are hard. Joint accounts have fallen out of favour in recent years. In the 1970s, roughly half of all married couples in the UK combined their incomes. Couples who have joint bank accounts are more likely to stay together because they don’t fall out about money as much, a study claims But this has dropped to one in eight couples today, with levels lowest among those in their twenties or thirties.  The decline of traditional marriage and the rise in the number of working mothers is thought to be behind the trend. Researchers from Sweden wanted to see how relationships were affected by joint or separate accounts.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Joe Biden could become embroiled in the FBI's...

    The charity watchdog has launched a formal investigation into Naomi Campbell’s fashion charity over concerns about its management and finances, it emerged last night. Fashion For Relief is facing a statutory inquiry by the Charity Commission, which will look at possible misconduct and mismanagement. The foundation was set up by the London-born supermodel, 51, to relieve child poverty and advance health and education around the world.  Charity founder: The charity watchdog has launched a formal investigation into Naomi Campbell’s fashion charity over concerns about its management and finances, it emerged last night It claims to have raised more than $15million dollars (£11.25million) since its foundation in 2005 – mostly through glitzy fundraising events.

As part of the watchdog’s investigation, Fashion For Relief trustees have been restricted from making some financial transactions ‘to protect the charity’s property’.

In a report published Monday, the US search giant said that the campaign aimed to steal people's login credentials using phoney emails sent to their inboxes. 2State-sponsored Russian hackers are targeting Gmail usersCredit: Alamy 2Heat map showing the locations of the attackers' targetsCredit: Google The attack took aim at more than 12,000 Gmail accounts but the malicious messages were stopped by Google before they could do any damage.

    An Indiana school administrator has been punished for a viral video where he explained how his school district pushes critical race theory on students.  Tony Kinnett, the Indianapolis School District science coordinator, instructional coach and administrator blew up social media on November 4 with the video.  'When we tell you that schools aren't teaching critical race theory... that's misdirection,' he said in the video, which has been retweeted and quote-tweeted over 7,000 times. 'We don't have the quotes and theories in state standards per se,' he continued. 'We do have CRT in how we teach. We tell our teachers to treat our students differently based on color. He went on to say: 'We tell our students that every problem is a result of white men. And that everything western civilization built is racist. That capitalism is a tool of white supremacy. This is in math, history, science, the arts and it's not slowing down.'  Kinnett posted that his access to various work accounts had been taken away earlier Thursday.

    AMERICANS should be on alert for a new scam involving unauthorized Google charges ranging from 99 cents to $10 appearing on their bank statements, experts have warned. The scam was first unearthed back in October when Chase bank account holders reported seeing strange charges of $13.01 on their statements. 1Chase bank users have been urged to be vigilant for fraudulent charges on their accountsCredit: Reuters The odd charge was always listed to be from Google, followed by the name of a business or person. Dozens of other people told ABC15 that they also found bogus charges on their accounts. Those amounts included charges of $.99, $1.07, $5, $9.99, and more. One victim, identified only as Matthew, who uses a local bank in Bastrop, Texas, said he found 13 transactions on his account for 99 cents each. Others have reported seeing the bogus charges on Walmart Money cards, CashApp accounts, and even accounts for government benefits. 'WHAT THE HELL?'

    The three White men charged with the murder of Ahmaud Arbery only pursued him through the quiet Georgia neighborhood because "he was a Black man running down the street," a prosecutor said Monday in her closing argument. "All three of these men made assumptions, made assumptions about what was going on that day and made their decision to attack Ahmaud Arbery in their driveway because he was a Black man running down the street," Linda Dunikoski told jurors in the Glynn County Courthouse as Black militia groups gathered outside.

    PeopleImages | E+ | Getty Images A majority of Americans have dipped into their retirement accounts before their golden years, a survey from Bankrate found. Fully 51% of those with the accounts said they have taken an early withdrawal, including 20% who did so during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the poll. The survey was conducted Oct. 20-22 among a sample of 2,225 U.S. adults. Generation Z tapped into their savings at the highest rate. While only 18% took an early withdrawal pre-pandemic, 40% said they did so during or after March 2020. Baby boomers were the most likely to keep their accounts untouched amid Covid — 34% had taken an early withdrawal before the pandemic but only 6% did so during or after March 2020. "Withdrawing money early from a retirement account costs you now, and it really costs you later," said Greg McBride, Bankrate's chief financial analyst.

    The Los Angeles Police Department trialed an artificial intelligence program designed to pinpoint users likely to commit crimes using their friends lists, location data and analyses of their social media posts.  A trove of internal LAPD documents obtained by the Brennan Center for Justice reveal that the department tried out Voyager Labs' software in 2019, and considered a long-term contract before the four-month trial ended in November of that year.  The software was used to surveil 500 social media accounts and sift through thousands of messages during that period, according to The Guardian.  Police said that data was used to get 'real-time tactical intelligence,' 'protective intelligence' for members of local government and the police department and to investigate cases related to gangs and hate groups. A sales pitch sent to the LAPD by the firm lays bare the capabilities of the software, which can rapidly amass a suspect's social media posts into a searchable interface, use AI to gauge whether those posts show indicators of extremism or criminal activity and surveil thousands of associated accounts. Voyager Labs claims that their software...
    Senate Banking Committee Republicans plan to highlight how Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden’s Comptroller nominee, has written academic papers calling for the government to abolish private sector banking and put all bank accounts into the Federal Reserve. The Senate Banking Committee will hold a hearing Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Eastern to consider the qualifications for Omarova, a Cornell law professor, to become the Comptroller of the Office of the Currency (OCC). Senate Banking Republicans said they plan to highlight just how radical Omarova would be as the Comptroller. “We have never in my lifetime, and I think the lifetime of many members of this committee, which runs up to 35 years, seen a nominee just for a regulatory spot who was so openly hostile to the industry that he or she would be responsible for regulating,” a senior Senate GOP aide said Tuesday. The aide said we have a nominee who has “talked openly and repeatedly about forbidding banking and that entire sector of the economy.” During a March conference, Omarova discussed one of her papers, “The People’s Ledger How to...
    XiFotos | E+ | Getty Images Millions of Americans are quitting and finding new jobs as the pandemic-fueled "Great Resignation" continues.   Many are probably leaving retirement plans with thousands of dollars behind. More than 25 million people who switched jobs between 2004 and 2014 left one or more employer-sponsored retirement accounts at their former workplace, according to a report from the Government Accountability Office. While these accounts can usually be recovered, tracking them down after the fact can take a lot of time and effort and means you've left money on the table. And, if you don't recover your employer-sponsored plans by the time you retire, you could face penalties for failing to withdraw money regularly. "We highly recommend people don't leave money scattered all over," said Gail Reid, a certified financial planner and private wealth advisor for Ameriprise Financial Services in Glendale, California.   RolloversThere are a few things that experts recommend looking at when switching jobs. First, if you have an employer-sponsored retirement plan that needs to vest, you may want to wait to quit your job...
    Instagram is asking some users to upload video selfies in an attempt to cut down on the number of bots on the site. The Meta-owned social network started making the request back in August 2020, but it paused the program soon thereafter after running into some technical issues, according to XDA Developers. Screenshots posted by several insiders this week, however, indicate it's still engaging in the practice to some extent. In a series of tweets Tuesday evening, Instagram's PR team said the company introduced video selfies more than a year ago 'to help confirm that there's a person behind an account, and not a bot.' Accounts that act suspiciously — including liking lots of posts or following a ton of accounts 'in a matter of seconds,' according to the Instagram Comms team — may be asked to provide a video. According to Instagram, the platform is not using a facial recognition program or collecting biometric data and the clips are deleted within 30 days of being posted.  Instagram did not immediate return a request for comment about video selfies.  Scroll down...
    A Westchester County investment adviser has been sentenced in connection with a scheme to embezzle more than $640,000 from several of his clients. Gregg Brie, age 54, of White Plains, was sentenced on Monday, Nov. 15, to 63 months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of wire fraud, according to Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Brie was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release and to pay forfeiture and restitution in the amount of $642,333.33 each. Williams said Brie embezzled the funds from three of his clients, including two people who lived in his apartment complex in White Plains. The US Attorney's Office said the first victim gave Brie more than $480,000 after Brie advised him to buy shares in Alaska Air Group, Inc. Brie told the victim that his stock had increased to about $8 million, but when the victim asked for the money Brie told him his accounts were frozen "because the stockbrokers had done something 'sketchy' in order to buy the shares at a lower price," Williams reported.  After...
    Prosecutors are claiming that Facebook deleted key evidence in a case against an extremist New Mexico militia group when it removed the group's page last year, and accuse the tech giant of refusing to retrieve needed information. District Attorney Raúl Torrez, of Bernalillo County in New Mexico, filed a lawsuit in June 2020 to limit the online activities of the New Mexico Civil Guard, a heavily armed self-described militia. The group clashed that month with protesters rallying to remove a statue of Spanish conquistador Juan de Oñate in Albuquerque. The violence ended in gunfire and left one protester seriously injured. While the shooter wasn’t a member of the militia, Torrez claimed its members perpetuated the chaos through posts and rhetoric on social media. The month after the protest, however, Facebook deactivated the group’s account for violating its policy, which bans hate speech and dangerous organizations. Now, the social media giant won't comply with a subpoena to produce content from the account.

    AstraZeneca's Covid-19 vaccine is administered at Mbagathi Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, on July 6, 2021.Patrick Meinhardt | Bloomberg | Getty Images The delta variant, first detected in India a little less than a year ago, now represents 99% of sequenced Covid-19 cases globally, making it more prevalent than any other strain, officials from the World Health Organization said Tuesday. Almost all of the up to 900,000 Covid cases sequenced worldwide over the last 60 days originated from the delta strain, Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO's technical lead on Covid, said during a Q&A streamed on the organization's social media channels. Van Kerkhove's comments come amid an international increase in Covid infections driven by surging cases in Europe. The continent accounted for roughly 60% of the more than 3.3 million new Covid cases in the world last week, Van Kerkhove said. "Delta is really the dominant one," Van Kerkhove said. "And there are two variants of interest – mu and lambda – that we've been tracking as well, but again, where delta is present, delta takes over."   CNBC Health & Science...

    ONCE you hit a certain age – it would be wise to start withdrawing from your retirement accounts before penalties kick in. At some point, you’ve probably heard that you’ll get slapped with a penalty if you withdraw from your retirement accounts too prematurely.   1We explain when you must withdraw cash from retirement accounts - or face penaltiesCredit: Getty But perhaps you didn’t know that you could get a penalty if you hold onto funds in your retirement accounts for too long. In fact, a required minimum distribution (RMD) will force you to start withdrawing from your retirement accounts to avoid paying penalties. But if you aren’t yet a senior – you don’t have to worry about this yet. That’s because the RMD doesn’t kick in until the year you hit age 72. The RMD can apply once the person officially turns 72 if it’s an individual retirement account (IRA), or the account owner holds a 5% stake in a business sponsoring the retirement plan. Along with IRAs, another major retirement plan is a 401k. Most read in MoneyPRETTY PENNY Check here to find out...
    A left-leaning research institute urged tech companies Monday to take additional steps to combat misinformation platforms, including censoring certain accounts. The Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder released a report Monday detailing several proposals for how best to combat “misinformation” and “disinformation” online and in media. The recommendations included content moderation practices targeted at individuals or accounts deemed to be “superspreaders” of misinformation. “Harmful misinformation posted by influential accounts should be prioritized for moderation and addressed (e.g., through labels, downranking, or removal),” the Commission wrote, pointing to examples of harmful misinformation such as inaccurate claims regarding public health as well as “threats against democracy.” The Aspen Institute, a left-leaning research institute funded by major philanthropic organizations including the Rockefeller Foundation and Ford Foundation, staffed its Commission on Information Disorder with almost exclusively left-wing individuals. The Commission included Katie Couric, Prince Harry, Kathryn Murdoch and Chris Krebs, who previously headed the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Conservative groups have criticized the organization for appointing partisan members to the Commission, believing it to be motivated by ideology.

    CAMBRIDGE, Md. (WJZ) — Andrew Bradshaw, the youngest mayor in the history of Cambridge, Maryland, is charged with violating Maryland’s revenge porn statute, the Office of the State Prosecutor said Monday. Bradshaw is charged with 50 counts of distributing revenge porn. Charging documents allege Bradshaw made multiple accounts on Reddit, a community forum website, with usernames that had the name and birthday of the victim, a woman previously in a relationship with him. From those accounts, he posted nude photos of her without her consent on forums related to sex, humiliation, degradation and race, officials said.

    (CBS Baltimore) — The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent out the fifth round advance Child Tax Credit payments on November 15. The actual time the check arrives depends on the payment method and individual banks. Many parents with direct deposit set up through the IRS had already received their money Monday morning. That amounted to roughly 60 million children overall the last time around. The remainder of families receiving their credits via direct deposit should have their money by the end of the day. Mailed checks could take up to a week, given the vagaries of the U.S. postal system. Future payments will continue monthly through the end of the year, thanks to the American Rescue Plan passed back in March. Payments beyond 2021 depend on the social spending plan currently being negotiated. The latest proposal would extend them through 2025. Families can use the Child Tax Credit money however they like. That means the extra $250 or $300 per child can be put toward essentials like food or rent. U.S. Census numbers collected in its Household Pulse Survey showed...
