We’ve previously shared about employment scams, where fraudsters prey on victims looking for jobs. In a typical employment scam, the fraudster poses as an employer and sends the victim a check with instructions to deposit it into the victim's account, keeping a small portion of the check for themselves and wiring the remaining balance to another account. A few days later, the deposited check returns on the victim’s account (as a counterfeit, account closed, or other non-payment reason), leaving the victim responsible for the lost funds.
How is it already mid-February? If you’re like me, you have barely recovered from the holidays. All the dining out, celebrations, and gift-giving were fun, but now you’re stuck sewing the hole that burned in your pocket. Then, just when you think you’ve finally caught up, sneaky February 14th is upon you vying for your love and credit cards. Yes, Valentine’s Day can very much feel like a commercial holiday and yet, many of us want to celebrate it by showering our loved ones with costly gifts. If you are looking for that kind of gift guide, this isn’t it. As the title suggests, this Valentine’s Day Gift Guide is for those who want to show their Valentine some affection while still being budget-conscious. As a bonus, these gifts take little planning and can come together in less than a day.

Nearly everyone has a familiar face come to mind after hearing the word cancer. Your mother, sister, grandfather, best friend, co-worker…the list goes on. A cancer diagnosis can often be the beginning of a long, costly, and painful journey for those affected. More than 5 years ago, we partnered with SCV’s Circle of Hope, Inc., a non-profit charity, through our Logix Community Stars foundation. Circle of Hope provides financial assistance to cancer patients in need and offers emotional support, while educating cancer patients and their families. Given their values and contribution to our branch communities, it made sense for us to support their efforts.
