May is traditionally the month when many of us begin to take trips or plan for them later in the summer. The purpose of my message today is to offer some suggestions for keeping your excursion — whether it be a day trip somewhere fairly close by or one further away for a longer period of time — as safe and free of scams as possible.
Before even leaving home, resist the urge to share your plans via social networking sites on the Internet. Criminals are constantly seeking out such information on websites for the purpose of breaking into your home while you are gone and committing larceny. While the temptation is great, resist the sharing until you return home, and then share what a wonderful time you had.
