Yet Another Scam Sweeping Across the Nation

Yet Another Scam Sweeping Across the Nation

Yet Another Scam Sweeping Across the Nation

Scams are never fun to deal with. No one ever wants to lose some of their hard earned money just because someone tricked them. Sadly, falling for scams is easier than people are aware. Scammers have dozens of different plays that they can use to trick unsuspecting targets. If the trick works, the target becomes a victim.

Once a person becomes a victim, they usually become aware of the fact that they have been scammed. Unfortunately, after this point, it is often too late to get the lost money back. This is often due to the fact that scammers often ask for the money in a way that is impossible to trace. It is a whole lot easier to prevent a scam than it is to fix things after a scam. This makes it all the more important for a person to be aware of scams and how they work.

The One Ring Scam

A new scam that is making its rounds around the country, is being referred to as the One Ring Scam. A scammer robocalls a series of numbers, all usually within the same area. The scammer lets the phone ring once or twice, and then hangs up. The process is usually repeated several times over the course of a day or two.

At first, this doesn’t sound like much of a scam, it sounds more like a prank call. However, all of this is meant to get the target’s attention. The hope is that the target will call the number back, where they will be asked to pay a fee for a long distance phone call. This “fee” gets paid to the scammer, and the target becomes a victim.

The scam doesn’t seem very effective at first glance. Most people don’t answer random numbers, and even if they did answer this call, they would just get hung up on. The trick with this scam is the repetitive nature of the calls. Many people might not answer a call from a random number, but after many calls from the same number, they may become curious. They may even think it might be important, after all, the person is really trying to get ahold of them. That is what causes most people to call the number back, and fall victim to the scam.

This is why the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is warning people about this new scam. It is rarely a good idea to answer a phone call from a number that a person does not know, and calling it back is an even worse idea. Currently, the calls seem to target certain regions all at once, suggesting that the scammers might be targeting area codes. The calls seem to be originating from the African nation of Mauritania with a country code of 222. A person is advised to ignore any phone calls with this country code in the phone number.

Learn to Avoid Scams and Report Them

If a person wants to avoid being scammed, then they need to learn how to recognize different scam behaviors. A big indication something might be a scam is if phone number is one the person doesn’t recognize. Another big indicator is if the phone number is from out of the country. These sorts of phone calls should often be avoided, no matter how persistent the caller may be.

If a person has received a scam phone call like this, than they should report it to the FCC by filling a complaint. Doing so can help put an end to the scam, and help protect other potential victims.

Can You Believe Teachers Have to Do This?

Can You Believe Teachers Have to Do This?

Teachers arguably have one of the most important jobs out there. Without teachers, knowledge wouldn’t be shared and kids would likely become adults without having enough knowledge to get very far. Unfortunately, despite their importance, teachers are often notoriously under paid. They are often so underpaid, that most TV shows will make a joke about it at some point.

Given that so many jokes are made about how much teachers are paid, no one is ever really surprised to hear the exact number. Everyone just expects it to be low. However, recently a California state law regarding teacher pay came into the spotlight. So few people know about this law that they might assume it’s new, but it has actually been around for quite some time. Regardless of its age, the recent surfacing of this law is causing quite an understandable outrage.

California Teachers Have to Pay for Substitutes

Back in the 1970’s, California lawmakers passed a law about teachers who have taken too many sick days during a school year. If a teacher takes more than their allotted sick days in a given year, their pay will be deducted in order to pay for the required substitute teacher.

Teachers receive salary pay, meaning they get paid a set amount each month, regardless of how many days they actually work. This law was likely inspired by the idea that, since the teacher isn’t actually working those extra sick days, then they shouldn’t be getting paid the whole amount. The law makes sense in that regard, since the same would be true for anyone who gets paid by the hour.

However, this law does not consider the fact that, if teachers are taking extended sick days, they may be facing some severe hardships. This is exactly what is happening to one second-grade, San Francisco teacher, which is what brought this old law into the light.

The Case That Brought the Law to Everyone’s Attention

One second-grade teacher in San Francisco is currently dealing with this law as best as she can. She is currently battling breast cancer and has used up her allotted sick days for the year. Due to this fact, her pay is deducted and used to pay for the substitute for her class. When parents learned about this, they were understandably upset.

Aside from bringing the plight of this teacher to light, student parents have also setup a GoFundMe. The GoFundMe organizers describe the teacher as a professional who is dedicated to her students. They say that a few days after her surgery, she wrote 22 notes, one for each of her students, telling them “she missed them dearly and encouraging them to keep working hard.”

The fundraiser received an outpouring of donations and has since stopped accepting donations after reaching its $10,000 goal.

Teachers Deserve Better

Teachers are incredibly important, and their jobs are not easy. Ask any parent about how tough it can be somedays to watch their own kids, then consider how many kids a teacher has to not only watch, but educate, for several hours five days a week. That is no easy task, and should earn a person a whole lot more than what teachers are currently making.

This old law of California’s regarding teachers paying for their own substitutes is not fair to the teachers, especially when they are facing hardships. They often need the money they earn to get by, and asking them to pay for a substitute while already dealing with incredibly expensive hospital bills is ridiculous.

Luckily, some California lawmakers are taking note of this, and looking into the matter. It may be that this law could be on its way out very soon.

What do you think of California’s law about teachers paying for their own subs? Is it reasonable, or unfair?

Putting Chalk on Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

Putting Chalk on Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

Putting Chalk on Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

One of the great things about our government, is how laws can change. As our country grows, and beliefs and ideas changes, our laws can adapt with the times. This has been done countless times over the course of America’s history and it continues to happen to this very day. In fact, an interesting change has recently taken place in regards to parking violations.

Most cities have pretty strict guidelines on when, where, and how residents can park their cars. These rules can change from city to city, and even street to street. However, the results are always pretty much the same: a small fine and/or the possibility of being towed.

Different cities and law enforcement agencies have different methods for how they monitor parking on city streets. However, thanks to a new court ruling, one method will have to be dropped, in some states anyways, since a court decided it threatens a person’s constitutional rights.

Why Do the Rules Exist?

When it comes to why these strict rules exist for parking, it boils down either to safety, or fairness. For instance, parking in front of a fire hydrant can pose a danger in the event that a fire breaks out nearby and fire fighters need access to the hydrant. Similarly, double parking, the act of parking a car parallel to a car that is parked along a curb, can be dangerous since it often places a car in the way of traffic.

Since parking spots are such a rare commodity in cities, many areas often pose time limits for how long vehicles can be parked there. The idea here is to keep cars moving out of the way in order to allow new drivers to park their own vehicles.

Most of the time, cities enforce their parking laws via parking meters. These devices keep drivers on a time limit, and charge them accordingly if they exceed that limit. As helpful as these devices can be for cities, not every city out there has parking meters installed. After all, they can be very expensive to install. This leads to cities using older methods to monitor parking, such as using parking enforcement officers.

Chalking Tires is Deemed Unconstitutional

One method used to monitor parking is to mark tires of vehicles with chalk. Parking enforcement officers use the chalk to signal how long cars have been parked. This helps them determine when a vehicle has been stationary for too long. However, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has determined that this method of parking enforcement is unconstitutional.

The court determined that the method invaded a person’s constitutional rights since the marking of the chalk was similar to a warrantless search of a citizen’s possessions. The search is unwarranted since there is no clear proof that the driver of the vehicle will break the law, there is only and assumption that the driver might break the law. This decision was reached largely due to the fact that this sort of enforcement seemed to be more focused on raising revenue for the city rather than enforcing safety.

This decision means that in the states of Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, parking enforcement officers will no longer legally be allowed to chalk vehicles tires as a way to determine if a car has overstayed it’s welcome in that particular spot.

How Will This Ruling Affect California?

While this recent court ruling does not directly affect the state of California, one can safely assume that other states will be taking notice of this event. The state of California is well known for being forward thinking, and this could very well become a law in the state in future. If that were the case, law enforcement agencies would have to rely on parking meters to determine if a car has been parked in a spot for too long.

What do think of this court ruling, is chalking a vehicles tire to monitor how long it has been parked unconstitutional? Should California and other states adopt a similar ruling?

Don’t Leave the Scene of an Accident Too Soon

Don’t Leave the Scene of an Accident Too Soon

Don’t Leave the Scene of an Accident Too Soon

Nobody ever wants to be in a car accident, even a minor one. A small accident could put a bump or ding on a person’s vehicle, while larger ones can result in severe injuries and even death. Due to this fact, people are afraid of getting in accidents, and rightfully so. No one wants to be responsible for hurting someone else. Unfortunately, accidents do happen.

When an accident happens, no matter how little or how bad it may be, a driver needs to remain on the scene to deal with it. If a driver leaves the scene of the accident before it is resolved, they could be charged with hit and run. That is a crime no one ever wants to be accused of.

A Driver’s Responsibility

Here in the state of California, a driver is responsible for handling any accidents that they are involved in, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. This means that if a driver hits another vehicle, or a person, they have to remain on scene to help out as best as they can. If a driver is hit by another vehicle, they still have to stay on the scene until the accident has been handled.

In either situation, if the driver leaves the scene of the accident without first identifying themselves, they could be charged with hit and run. To identify themselves at the scene of an accident, a driver must stop their car, and provide the other parties involved with the accident with their identifying information. This includes the driver’s:

• Name.
• Contact information.
• Current address.
• Driver’s License, upon request.
• Vehicle registration, upon request.
• The information of the vehicle’s owner, if the driver isn’t the owner.

 
Though a driver should stay on the scene until it is completely dealt with, they can leave after they have given the other party this information if they are in a hurry to get somewhere. At least with the information given, the other party will be able to sort out the accident.

When it comes to hitting a parked car, a person should leave a note with all of the above information, plus a description of what happened, in a discreet, yet easy to find spot. The person should then contact the local police department and alert them to the accident. Doing all of this creates a record of the incident and shows that the drive tried to remedy the situation.

Penalties of Committing Hit and Run

Under California Vehicle Codes (VC) 20002 and 20001, hit and run crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors or as felonies. How the crime is charged is dependent on what was damaged during the car accident that the driver fled from. If property was damaged, then the driver will face misdemeanor charges. If a person was injured or killed, then the driver will face felony charges.

The consequences of VC 20002, misdemeanor hit and run, are:

• A max fine of $1,000.
• A jail sentence of up to 6 months.
• 3 years informal probation.
• 2 points on driver’s record.
• Restitutions to victims.

 
The consequences of VC 20001, felony hit and run, are:

• A fine between $1,000 and $10,000.
• A prison stay of 3 or 4 years.
• 2 points on driver’s record.
• Restitutions to victims.

 

A Driver Is Better Off Staying

Being charged with hit and run in California is no small matter. Hit and runs are taken very seriously, and can cost a driver more than just money. In addition, a driver can be accused of hit and run regardless of whether or not the accident was their fault. This means that by fleeing the scene of an accident, a driver can make circumstances worse for themselves. They may not have been in any legal trouble had they stayed, but y running, the driver became guilty of hit and run.

This is why it is best for drivers to just stop and pullover when they’ve been in an accident. Running will just make things worse.

What do you think of California’s hit and run laws? Are they too strict, not strict enough, or just right?
