As of September 21, 2018, freezing and unfreezing your credit is now free. Under a new federal law, you will no longer need to pay a fee for freeze requests, and fraud alerts on credit reports are now valid for a year, extended from the prior timeline of 90 days.
Earlier this year, we shared that October 8th will be our inaugural Community Day. Logix staff will be supporting SCV Project Linus by making 200 blankets that will comfort children who are ill, traumatized or otherwise in need. The SCV Project Linus chapter was formed in 2013. Many of their “blanketeers” are students from local high schools, who donate completed blankets to several nonprofits throughout the area, including Henry Mayo, located in Santa Clarita. We're grateful for the opportunity to help.
With the changing of seasons, there are activities we come to look forward to. In summer, those activities include days at the beach, picnicking with friends and family, catching local baseball games, and taking advantage of free concerts offered at parks throughout L.A. Weekend entertainment options are abundant, and we're here cheering about one of our faves.

Peer-to-peer (P2P) apps, such as Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, and Square have increased in popularity and earned a spot as an efficient means of transferring money quickly to other parties. This method of transferring funds is not only a plus for consumers, but fraudsters as well who are always on the prowl for new ways of scamming their victims.
