Receive notifications on your wrist with Galaxy Gear. Stay in the moment by keeping your phone out of sight, without missing important calls, texts, events, and more.
Smart Relay for Even Faster Access to Notifications
When a notification requires a closer look, the second you pick up your Galaxy phone, the Smart Relay feature automatically opens up that app to the exact message you're seeing on your wrist.
Hands-Free Calls
Making calls on the move has never been easier. Now you can place calls and answer them directly from your Galaxy Gear. Galaxy Gear includes 2 built-in noise-canceling microphones and a built-in speaker for hands-free chatting.

Find My Device
Never lose track of your phone again. Now, if your phone gets stuck in the couch cushions, use Galaxy Gear to remotely activate sounds or vibrations for easy location. You can also use your phone to help you find the Galaxy Gear.
Auto Lock/Unlock
Senses when you've walked more than 5 feet away from your Galaxy phone and automatically secures your device. When you return, Gear tells your phone that it's you and automatically unlocks no PIN or thumbprint required.
Brilliant Display
Samsung Galaxy Gear's 1.6" Super AMOLED touchscreen has more pixels than most smartphones, which means you can read crisp text and enjoy vivid images right from your wrist.
The Companion With Style
Galaxy Gear is the companion device designed to make life easier without cramping your style. Its sleek design, durable body and range of colors mean you can wear it anywhere and everywhere.
Personal Touch
Use the Gear Manager app on your Galaxy phone to totally customize your experience. Change your Gear settings, customize and add new watch faces, enable or disable features, organize your apps and more.
Capture the moment right from your wrist.
Don't miss the action pulling out your phone. With a 1.9 MP auto-focus camera embedded in the strap, snap pictures and even capture videos quickly and easily right from Gear.
Built-In Pedometer
Galaxy Gear makes it easier to get in shape. Keep track of your walking and running distance with its built-in pedometer. And with S Health, you can monitor and achieve your fitness goals right from your wrist.

wall street journal said: Staples Inc. made the State of New York quite a promise: Buy your office supplies from us, and we'll sell you a bunch of things for a penny apiece. This unleashed a rush on the retailer as government offices and qualifying organizations across the state gobbled up the one-cent items. A Brooklyn charity benefiting disabled people ordered 240,000 boxes of facial tissue and 48,000 rolls of paper towels, according to documents obtained in a public-records request. Rome, N.Y., wanted 100,000 CD-Rs. A State Department of Motor Vehicles office ordered 8,000 rolls of packaging tape.


I think someone is going to be fired.

Advice for disabled friend on how to invest $350K

g: 0 Posted By: ChippyNY
Views: 100 Replies: 4 I have a close friend who's unable to work due to chronic disability from medical malpractice. He received about $350K and he receives Social Security Disability, but SSD is enough to cover only his rent. If he does nothing, the money should last him only about eight more years. He's 48 and his family members tend to live into their late 80s or 90s. What should he do to safely invest this money but get more than 0.8% interest which he currently gets through online banking? I don't think he's up for investing in real estate.

Apple iTunes In-app Purchase Refunds
Added on : Thursday April 03rd 2014 06:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: hoosierary1
Views: 153 Replies: 0 Just received an email from Apple indicating that they will be refunding for in-app purchases where a child may have purchased without a parents authorization. My questions is how will would Apple be able to validate if a child was really the one who ordered the app and therefore eligible for a refund? Seems as though I could claim any of my app purchases were by my children (although I wouldn't).~~

Dear iTunes account owner,

Apple is committed to providing parents and kids with a great experience on the App Store. We
review all app content before allowing it on our store, provide a wide range of age-appropriate
content, and include parental controls in iOS to make it easy for parents to restrict or disable
access to content.

Weve heard from some customers that it was too easy for their kids to make in-app purchases.
As a result, weve improved controls for parents so they can better manage their childrens
purchases, or restrict them entirely. Additionally, we are offering refunds in certain cases.

Our records show that you made some in-app purchases, and if any of these were unauthorized purchases by a minor, you might be eligible for a refund from Apple.

Please follow the steps below to submit a refund request:
Find your in-app purchase records. Check your email for iTunes receipts or use a computer to sign in to your iTunes account and view your Purchase History.

Use this link to submit your refund request to Apple.

Provide the requested information and enter Refund for In-App Purchases made by a minor
in the Details section.


Apple will review your request and contact you via email about your refund status. All refund requests must be submitted no later than April 15, 2015.

If you have any questions or need further assistance with your refund request, please contact Apple.

To learn more about parental controls in iOS, please see this article.

Thank you.

Views: 66 Replies: 1 I have an extended family member who qualifies for elderly disabled subsidized housing in Massachusetts. The main concern is about the safety of these dwellings. I am aware that many people are disabled as a result of a highly communicable disease. An example would be drug-resistant tuberculosis. There's probably no way of knowing if the previous tenanthad an awful incurable transmittable diseases. And perhaps no way of knowing if a neighbor has something like that either (where the germs can just flow into your open window or contaminate the indoor hallway).

On the other hand, the incentive to live in a place like that is that they only charge 30% of a person's income. And if someone has no income, I believe monthly rent can be as low as $35 a month! Of course, that sort of savings is nothing compared to the misery and medical expense one would incur by catching some awful ailment. I've tried contacting the agency that runs these developments and all I got were vague answers. I think this is a common question, so hopefully someone on here would know the answer. I would really like to know specifics about what they do to ensure that diseases like my example of TB, don't run rampant (or get spread to a few unlucky individuals by means of their dwelling). I did a google search about this and found nothing. While I believe that this does fit FW since it's partially a financial issue, I would be interested in posting this elsewhere as well, if anyone's aware of a more appropriate forum (which I am not aware of and could not find).

Views: 139 Replies: 0 In the wake of yet another instance of widespread data compromise for the purposes of financial fraud, I thought we should have a discussion of information security as viewed mainly from a financial perspective. While in the case of the Target_ compromise, there may be little that we can personally do to avoid a repeat, the more routine sorts of fraud are more readily influenced by individual behavior.

None of this is particularly new as I expect that it has been repeatedly discussed over time in disparate threads of this board. I would like a more concentrated form of that to be established here.

Financial security is often compromised by our own activities and careless guarding of related details. Not all of this is even under our direct control, but being circumspect about what we can protect is crucial_.

If someone has targeted you for theft, be it digital or otherwise, it is likely you will be compromised to some extent. Over the years, many of our personal details become widely distributed. Further, information aggregation business are out there, simplifying research done by others, including unscrupulous parties.

Most of what I'm concerned about herein is the prevention of casual/incidental abuses that stem from our personal lapses in privacy/security.

Has all this worked for me? Yes and no. Over the years, I've had the occasionally fraudulent CC charge appear and have always been able to get it expunged, sometimes also replacing the related card. So far so good, but the less of it the better.

Also, I don't do all of these things. This is time consuming and somewhat endless due to the moving target_ that is the information age. Securing things often means much less convenience will follow; it is a balance to be sure. Yet I do much of the below and am interested in seeing what others do in addition to this and/or how the FWF community adapts them to their own situations.

The better content should be placed in the quick summary along with proper credits to their posters since reading a long thread (if this becomes that) is not something a lot of casual readers will be inclined to do.

What follows is my personal list, many aspects of which are 'obvious' or will surely not suit others here. It is also far from comprehensive but provides a discussion starting point. To each his own, of course:

- Randomize them all, make them strong! After that, you'll probably need to look them up with each usage or trust an account management program. Backups will become crucial_.
- Avoid use of the same entries across multiple sites.
- Verification questions need not have relevant answers. E.g.: What was your first pet's name? "^BxaAp43O", sure seems like a mouthful, but it's more secure than 'Spot'.
- Secondary security elements may be simple/weak as long as they are encapsulated by a strong initial layer which itself cannot be bypassed. I'll leave the 'connecting of dots' to the reader, but the next topic is one encapsulation method I like.

Encryption

Use TrueCrypt; learn how to apply it. Protect all media containing financial information. Specifically, I suggest usage of device level encryption. If not TC, use what you like, but encrypt that financial data! I personally question the strength of Microsoft Office's (and other application suites) built in file encryption/password protection, but something is better than nothing. Do it. Do it now.
Selectively encrypting your email is nice too, but should be rarely need and often means educating recipients which can be royally painful. As an alternative, call or visit the other party if it is necessary to convey sensitive information. Never plain text email account credentials to anyone. Use your online account's 'secure email' option when communicating with your financial institutions.

Digital backup

Use the 'cloud' to store strongly encrypted backups and keep them current. Such could even be posted to Usenet. Trust in your encryption, not the service provider.
Store copies on solid state media like USB sticks. I've had sticks go through the laundry and survive unscathed, but all things fail so treat accordingly.
- Off-site a routinely refreshed copy, e.g. work/home exchange of a pair of encrypted sticks.

Physical records

Shred them before you throw them out: bills, application forms, courtesy checks, statements, etc.
- Storage should not be on the kitchen counter for any persons to see/browse/appropriate; keep them under lock and key and destroy when no longer useful.
- Consider elimination of billing statements via auto pay methods.
Alter the CVV codes on the back of your physical cards. Adopt a secret method of alteration and write the new number in place of the original. Writing an altered form of that often forgotten or rarely used ATM/Debit card PIN on the card itself becomes relatively safe to do as well. While I'm on the topic, don't sign your CCs, it often causes cashiers to check for photo ID. A thief can sign it of course, but it would provide more evidence that you did not authorize the usage in the event of a signature verification.

Email

Limit what details are routinely sent to your email account by bill payment systems.
- Providers, among others, all along the delivery chain are known to do 'market research' via scans of your email content; this is *not* encrypted. Consider what you receive/send by email as equivalent to having been posted on a public bulletin board.

Swipes

Inspect publicly accessible readers (e.g. pumps, ATMs) for skimming paraphernalia. The 'good stuff' may be hard to spot, but observation over time at the same device can help you recognize 'normal' and give pause when something has changed.

Online CC

When available, use the virtual account number features of your CC provider.
- Setting a preauthorize transaction limit and near-term expiration can prevent all sorts of unauthorized tomfoolery.
Avoid saving/registering payment details such as card numbers with each vendor.

Other access restriction*

Disable the cash advance feature of your CC if you don't intend to use it. A call to the issuing bank or online secure email may be all it takes to set this limit to $0. Bonus to doing this is that charges which are not known to be cash advances at the time of the attempt will be declined, avoiding the related advance fee which is often quite substantial.
Disable the debit card functionality of ATM cards if you don't need it. Many ATM debit cards have VISA/MC logos and can be used in credit mode instead. Loosing possession of your card while it has debit enable features can lead to the quick zeroing of your associated account balance.

* It has been my experience that some banks will refuse to do either of the above. So much for consumer focus.

Aggregators

Find them and request that your records be excluded from searches. I leave it to the community to indicated which providers to pursue for this and give related (if any) links/instructions. I'm lazy like that. This would be good content for the quick summary.
Wallet services - one stop shops are run by someone, probably many someone's, all with administrative rights to your account details. How much trust are you willing to seed in them?

Monitoring

Credit/account monitoring services let you know when there is suspicious activity and/or new credit inquiries going on. They can help resolve issues too. I'm personally on the fence regarding these and generally not willing pay for the benefit. They are yet another aggregator like group, but ostensibly 'on your side'.
Some people go as far as placing a security freeze on their accounts for each of the big three credit reporting companies. I've heard third hand that it may require some type of adverse action before it is permitted. Experian's Description

RFID enabled devices/documents

For example, gas pump dongles. Maybe this is more a matter of paranoia, but be aware that it's always 'on' and can be scanned without your knowledge. Not only gas pumps do this.
These chips can be intentionally burnt out or masked if you're sufficiently concerned. I might like to do that to a passport, but doing so may substantially slow usage at the border.

Miscellanea

When all else fails, cash is king?


Let the constructive criticism barrage begin...


General questions for the community:

Which privacy/security practices are of the highest value in return for their corresponding effort to maintain?
How should incapacitation/death be handled, when another trusted party needs to know?


PS: I realize that this discussion scope is in danger of being far too broad already, so though it seems a logical follow up question, I suggest we avoid the 'what do I do now that I have been compromised?' tangents, focusing instead on prevention versus remediation.

I was shopping for Sonicare ProResults electric toothbrush brushheads the other day and noticed that on several retailers'sites there is a clickable coupon for $4 off.

I saw it on drugstore.com, Target.com, and Amazon.com.

The Amazon one allows the $4 off coupon to be stacked with their subscribe and save option, making a setof 3 brushheads $18 (that is, if you have enough subscribe and save items in yourorder, which is 5 itemsas far as I know,to make the subscribe and save discount 15% instead of 5%). That includes free shipping, and no taxes, ifAmazon shipments to your state are not taxed.

Note that you must choose the frustration free product option (click thatbutton on the product page) for the$4 coupon andthe sub and save price I mention here to pop up together.

To find the coupon on Amazon, see the followingpart of the page in the "frustration free" listing of the item:

http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Sonicare-HX6013-Proresults-Standard/dp/B0086VI9TE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1383353593&sr=8-1&keywords=proresults+brush+heads

Note that the Amazon site isn't totally clear in terms of the finalprice it says that you will pay for these - in my personal sub and save list, the price shown for these doesn't include the $4 off coupon, but I definitelygot a pop-up acknowledgement page from Amazon saying that the $4 coupon would be appliedafter the sub and save discount was taken off, soafter it ships I'llmake sure thattheycharged my card the right price for this item.

Verizon iPhone Upgrade Fraud at Walmart
Added on : Monday September 23rd 2013 02:00:11 PM
g: 0 Posted By: anonguy
Views: 87 Replies: 0 Not sure if this is the proper forum, but figure it might be of interest. This morning my wife's Verizon phone wasn't working. She shares one of those friends and family plans with her sister, so we just figured there must have been a problem with the overall account. But it turns out her phone, as well as her niece's, had been deactivated because both of them were "upgraded" to new iPhone 5s at a WalMart in West Hills, CA yesterday at 5 pm. As a T-Mobile prepaid user I'm not exactly a pro on the whole upgrade process, but how the heck does a stranger pop into a WalMart and walk out with a pair of new iPhones on someone else's account? For chrissakes, we aren't even in the same state. Wouldn't one need a form of ID, password or the old phones to do this?

Verizon has told the sister to file a police report and to watch her bill next month as, I'm assuming, some charges could pop up. But I would think WalMart would need to be involved somehow (at least for possible security tape). I am, though, curious as to how the scam is played out. Wouldn't they have had to pay something at WalMart for the phones, although I guess that could be in cash or a stolen CC. I'm guessing since Verizon is now aware of it wouldn't the new iPhones be disabled somehow? Or could they be flashed to avoid that fate or were these always slated to be dumped on some poor Craigslister?

Views: 189 Replies: 5 Hi FW-

Usually I can get some good feedback from this forum so I wanted to present a few work scenarios I am contemplating right now. Ive been working in accounting/finance for approx. the last 10 years. Most of the work is specialized within one particular industry (entertainment). Im not a CPA, but I also do a little bookkeeping on the side for various people both in my industry and in others. One of my clients is interested in basically having me go full time. His business is more engineering oriented. So here are my options:

Current employer: $70K annual salary, decent health benefits, I contribute about $1200/yr towards cheapest HMO. They have a 401k with 6% match but I dont contribute, Im 32 and plan to work until I drop dead or become disabled. I get 10 days PTO, 1 personal day, and we get XMAS through new years off (which is industry standard although this place seems to have a big debate about it every year). We also get some other days off like a few Fridays during the summer. The work environment is pretty relaxed (no overtime, cool bosses in my dept) and I am good at my job and I am also the only person who does this job. I dont see a lot of room for growth though, as it is a very top heavy organization, although my boss recently said the CFO wants me to take on some new projects from another dept. In the past (at other employers) this usually means hey, here is a bunch of extra work because you are good at it and I hope you are happy with your current salary. I did get a $3k bonus last year, but we were recently purchased by a PE firm and they laid off a bunch of people so I think that is up in the air now. So I am approaching my 2 year anniversary here and still at the same base salary I was hired at. This is a $100M company. My commute is OK by standards in this city, at around 45-50 mins each way (in heavy traffic) although I am getting really tired of it lately.

New Opportunity:Small business, gross revenue around $1M. Ive known the owner for around 10 years and consider him a friend. Also some of my closest friends work for him for quite a while now. I also would have the opportunity to delve into the engineering side of his business and learn some new skills. Particularly if I took the initiative to learn some of the software packages they work with. The commute is 10 minutes. He mentioned Id probably get around 3 weeks PTO but I know he has no formal vacation policy and as long as business needs can support it, he gives time off liberally. He also makes a concerted effort to keep employees happy with lunches, etc and I have seen him give out some nice bonuses too at the end of the year. Because of the nature of the business, I think OT is required when they are very busy or get a job that falls in off hours. I would do more than just the books, and would probably assume an overall business administration / operations role, doing whatever needs to be done on that end and also possibly even helping out with some of their jobs when they get slammed. My main concern is that if the economy goes south and his business suffers, he may find it not possible to retain me, since my compensation is fairly high compared to others there. I know in 2008 they had some hard times and he kept everyone on, but asked that they take pay cuts until business picked back up. At the end of the year things were much better and he gave out good bonuses to compensate. Anyway I have these two options:

Salaried: $72K ($6k/mo), PPO health plan I am sure I would have to contribute maybe around $100/mo for.
Contractor: $78K ($6500/mo), no benefits.

Im pretty sure I am going to go over to the new place for the obvious reasons (more cash, better commute, less bureaucracy). I still like entertainment but it has lost its luster after 10 years and I feel like I am trapped in this niche and need some new skills. I am also leaning towards the contract position. I could use the extra cash flow to better manage some of my debt and expenses, write off business expenses including a small portion of my extremely high rent, and also attempt to pursue some more business management contract opportunities with other contacts I made over my 10 years in entertainment. Of course the downside is no health insurance in case ish hits the fan, no unemployment if I get laid off or other protections afforded salaried employees, and most of all double FICA. So what would you choose in my situation? Mostly interested to hear salary versus contract but I gave info on my current employer for those few who say dont do it. If you say that please tell me why. I usually talk these over with my dad since he has years of experience with both but my mom is in the hospital and I just dont want to go there since I can tell he is stressed enough.

Thanks - RP

has microsd card slot that takes up to 32gb card (tried 64 and didn't recognize), slightly sluggish compared to my Samsung skyrocket. Uses full size sim card, best tech for the lowest price with no contract. Its an AT&T go phone (prepaid) just popped her puretalkusa sim in and bam works.

I would tho, do the following,
the att address book was like not loading at all, you could turn off the 'data' and it would always show up as a network error, or use this fix i figured out.

from the home screen, hit the right non screen button
manage apps
scroll the screen right untill you see "All" apps running
click on AT&T Phonebook,
click stop
click disable
reboot phone
FIXED!!!

again this is if your going to use this for anohter carrier other than at&t im sure with at&t it will work fine, but i refuse to pay a data plan, since wifi is everywhere, i dont need to send a mms, since i only pay $ 10 /month for cellphone bill

PS: also, this phone will not accept 64 gb microsd cards...and it takes a full size sim...i know about the 64 cause i tried...on the other hand, my i727 samsung skyrocket does take a 64 gb even tho it says it doesnt.

The fees are also extremely reasonable: transferring money from your Venmo balance is free, as are payments funded by U.S. bank accounts and most debit cards. Only credit card transfers are subject to the standard 3% convenience fee. And if you're worried about your data being safe and secure, don't be Venmo only transfers data over a 256-bit SSL, which is certified by VeriSign; to add to the level of protection, you can also disable your device from your Venmo account (in case it's lost or stolen).
For the next week, the first 5000 users who sign up for Venmo with this link will score $7 in their account in celebration of the new Nexus 7. Unfortunately, this incentive isn't available for existing Venmo users. Sadface.

Capital One sent me an ebill late. System won't allow them now.

Views: 60 Replies: 1 Capital One sent me an ebill one day before the bill was due. I was expecting an ebill but I noticed it didn't come so I paid it but then I get an ebill one day before the bill was due. So I disable then try to reenable ebills but now it says it won't allow them.I spoke to customer service who tells me due to changes that will be made on xyz date, ebills won't be able to be used anymore due to recurring transactions. (This wasn't even a recurring transaction, I got the ebill late).So now I am looking for a new replacement credit card due to Capital One's horrific customer service. When I first got the card, customer service was bad but I stuck with it, had no problems for awhile and now I am having issues again. The 1.5% CashBack and No FOREX is tempting but the service is horrible and just not worth it.

Are you wondering how teachers can handle a whole classroom of kids? Are you wishing your children came with a users manual so you would know how to work with them? Or do you just want some new ideas that can strengthen the great things you are already doing with your children?
This book will give you step-by-step ideas of ways you can guide your child to being helpful and considerate. It will help you answer these challenges: How and why do I use positive language? What type of questions will get me respect? How do I teach my child everyday things? (Shouldnt they already know it?) How do I put some fun back into the everyday trying to be a good parent?
The strategies found inside are ones that you can implement now to move toward or give strength to a fun, peaceful home.
Christina Smith draws her experience first and foremost from her three children. They were her 'trial and joy by fire'. She also has an elementary and special education bachelors degree; working the last seven years in a post-high program for the severely disabled adult. She wishes she knew the strategies enclosed when she was raising her kids. 'It would have made life with my kids a lot easier.' She wants other parents to know that these strategies, if used, can help make their home life a little more like heaven.
"I found this book to be incredibly helpful with my kids (one of whom has special needs). The methods are practical and intuitive; not intimidating or unrealistic. I could go to any section and find the tools I needed for the different situations I come across every day in my parenting life. I would highly recommend this book for anyone with children."
--JaNell D. Mathews, Teacher, and mother for a child on the autism spectrum
Fraudulent Credit/Debit Charges
Added on : Thursday August 01st 2013 07:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: OverRuled
Views: 103 Replies: 1 I have been hit 3 times on 3 different cards with fraudulent charges mostly related to APPLE ITUNES...1. The first time was about over a year ago on my Citi credit card. I had to call Citi to report and had them issue me a different card.
2. The second time was 3 days ago on my wife's Visa Check card that works like ATM or Debit by Navy Federal Credit Union. However, they cannot do anything until the 2 charges are posted and out of "pending" status. They have disable the card and I asked not to even have a replacement because my wife never uses it anyway and all ATM withdraw have been done with my card anyway. This one is interesting because my wife has never even used this card once! As of this morning, the charges have disappeared.
3. The third time is this morning on a Chase credit card with at least 10 different charges about $10 each and 2 small charges from "Google Music". I called Citi and they quickly cancel the card and will send a replacement soon.After some research, I have learned that this is not by Apple but by scammers, after somehow getting info of card numbers, will just make charges using those names such as APPLE ITUNES, GOOGLE MUSIC, ETC... However, APPLE ITUNES is probably the most common.Since I have just been hit with 2 cards within 3 days and one of the cards has never been even used, I would like to raise a flag reminding people to constantly monitor credit/debit cards and watch out for these fraudulent charges including those cards that you have never used. I hope the FBI will take this seriously and catch these crooks.

Today I got out my "sockdrawered" credit cards that are still active, and destroyed and threw out the expired ones. Then with each of my open CC/debit accounts, I purchased a 90-cent Amazon GC for my own use. (We'll soon learn why that might not have been a great idea...) Like many on FWF, I've accumulated a decent number of credit cards through bonus and BT offers. I have 12 open credit card accounts (almost all with zero balances), as well as 3 debit cards (USAA, ING Electric Orange, and AMEX Serve). So that's 15 cards in total; I think Amazon still had on file various expired cards and prepaid cards I previously cashed out, but I deleted most of them today (until Amazon broke my account.) Some of the cards I used today haven't been used in 2+ years.It didn't seem like such a stupid idea at first; my anticipation was that I would get calls from half of the CC companies, I would assure them everything is a-ok (as usual), and we'd be good. (I know that very small/unusual transactions on cards are a red flag for fraud, especially if the card's been unused for a long time. 90 cent transactions at Amazon tend to be a bit unusual. So I don't blame the issuer for denying it, especially when it could be the first txn in a while.) My reason to make a small transaction/activity on each card was to reduce the likelihood of sockdrawer cards going "dormant" and possibly being closed. There's been discussion on this topic in FWF before, either on cheap transactions to keep CCs "alive" (as I tried to do) or cheap transactions to fulfill reward checking program requirements (eg 10 debit txns/month). So I decided to get cheap Amazon GCs, as I can just deposit them and buy things on Amazon like I always do (sans the 5% bonus from using Citi Forward). You can buy email gift certificates in denominations as low as 15 cents, and they send and are redeemable almost instantly. The 90 cent amount was chosen in part to see which (if any) of the dormant CCs would "cancel out" a very small bill. IIRC some issuers do/did it for statements below ~$1.As I understand, I did not do anything illegal; rather, Amazon probably just found my pattern of transactions to be sketchy. I'm buying 15 $0.90 giftcards individually using 15 different payment methods; that's probably a bit out of the ordinary. I'd figure they lose money from these low-dollar giftcard transactions (eg payment processing fees), but I figured that I'd need to do a huge volume of low-dollar txns for Amazon to take notice. At first I'd imagine they wouldn't care so much about 15 orders as they would care about bulk customers making hundreds or thousands of orders. I'd finished 14 orders, each on a different card (but all on the same Amazon account and "home" IP addy/PC) by the time I reached the 15th transaction. Surprisingly, not a single transaction had been declined so far!I think the 15th (and last) was for my AMEX Serve card, which still has the $20 on it from the signup offer. It goes through, says order is processing, and I poke around on Amazon some more. Shortly I see an Amazon login page, which just gives me the error "There was an error with your E-Mail/Password combination. Please try again." But I hadn't changed my login so I tried again, then tried changing my password...but still no dice. I can browse public content and it still acknowledges that I'm logged in, but can't access any "restricted" areas at all (ie almost anything in "Your Account" or checkout). I got the "processing order" email for the last one, but not the GC itself. (In retrospect, this may have been caused by me typing my name with middle initial as printed on most cards, whereas the Serve card only has first/last. Or they might have been planning to shut me down regardless.) It now seemed plausible that Amazon broke my account because of the recent activity, but I had received no email or notification about any problems. It seems like they disabled my account for suspicious behavior, but didn't even have the courtesy to honestly notify me of the issue. So uh oh: maybe "error with your email/password" is just Amazon-speak for "we assume you did something pretty bad"...I go to Amazon online support chat, and the rep has very limited info/power on the situation. Apparently no way to escalate; supposedly there's no live online/phone communications with the higher tier support team (it's just email). I had conversations with a couple of reps, and both asked me to provide my billing address, and the phone number for "my bank" so they can escalate the case, as they cannot handle it. (It's a little harder to give the bank contact information when you have transactions through nearly a dozen financial institutions...) So along with explaining the situation (all cards are solely in my name, and I personally hold responsibility and authorize the charges), I go along and read all 13 of the customer service phone numbers I found on my active credit/debit cards. But this information is practically public knowledge, and they know what cards I used anyway.After I provided the requested information, I'm told I'll hear back from an "Account Specialist" within 24 hours regarding my account and order (they kept the last 90-cent order floating in the air). This slightly worries me though; I've heard that Amazon is known to permanently ban "abusive" customers for things like making too many returns, or whatever else they consider "bad customer" behavior. Buying fifteen $.90 giftcards separately isn't really profitable for Amazon (with credit card fees and such). But this pales in comparison to the other business I've done with Amazon over the years (Prime, Associates, and Chase Amazon CC customer), so I wouldn't think they would drop me just because they lost a few bucks here. It seems more plausible that they would just deem me a security threat based on this incident ("sane people don't have 15 credit cards, I'm sure he's up to something"), and maybe ban me on suspicion of CC fraud or money laundering. Of course, I do not and never intended any actions relating to these crimes. Being banned from Amazon would not be fun for me But I'll have to see what I hear back from them.Have any FWFers ever dealt with Amazon over something like this, especially with many tiny orders in a short period of time? What sort of response do you usually get from them, and how does it turn out? The rep suggested that I might later be asked to send in financial documentation such as bank/credit card statements. That seems excessive to me; I might expect that for an AMEX Financial Review or something, but not for the privilege of giving my money to Amazon. Of course they're a private business, they have the right to refuse service for (almost) any reason, and so on. But I might have to rethink doing business if they actually demand financial records just for me to buy books. (plus Amazon seems to have been going downhill in recent years anyway)Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
Any experience with Section 8?
Added on : Tuesday June 25th 2013 06:00:15 AM
Here's my situation: I have a relative who is disabled (actually disabled, not lazy). Her girlfriend/life partner/whatever they're calling it these days is also on disability, and gets a section 8 voucher. Currently they are living in a terrible neighborhood: multiple shootings and a murder or two in the last year within a few blocks. So, here's my plan. I would like to buy a small rental property in a safe neighborhood. Nothing nice, no granite countertops, just something safe, and cheap enough that I can cover my costs. I've found a couple of properties that will work, and am working on getting an offer together.I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with section 8. I've googled it, but I can't find good answers. Specifically:1. What is the process to get approved to accept section 8? What can I expect as far as inspections?
2. How long will it take to start getting paid?
3. Any chance that this won't get approved? It should be an arm's length transaction, because I'm not actually related to the person who is renting the place. I'm planning to charge about $50 below market rent (which is the voucher amount).This is in Ohio.
student loan advice
Added on : Monday June 17th 2013 11:00:08 AM
I have a student loan that was paid for by the guarantor due to me being totally disabled, the servicer says it is transfered or sold and permanently assigned to the government in the remarks on my credit report, the scoring models are scoring this as a default, there are no late payments on these loans, so now i cannot get approved for any credit, the remarks do not appear like that on experian and it is a 756 score, how can i get this fixed and possibly make money on it for a FCRA violation.

I've been a FW member for 9 years; I created a new account for this post for privacy reasons. I am making this post here because I have not been able to think of a realistic solution and I feel that the collective brain power and creativity that exists on FWF may spawn an idea that I have failed to think of.Goal: A source of income, earned working from home, greater than $500/month; ideally, greater than $700/month working ~3 hours per day. She receives medicare and medicaid- so there are limits to the amount of income she can report without losing her much needed medical benefits.She receives $660/month in SS disability now- obviously impossible to live on. I make up the difference. Her needs are greater now and I cannot make up the additional difference. My own financial situation has deteriorated and I am now supporting her from my savings- which is not sustainable. I also provide monthly income for my elderly mother who is also disabled; as her monthly social security is not sufficient. Over the years, I've provided over $250,000 in support for them along with my grandmother. At over 50 now myself, my savings are pitiful and dwindling each month. I'm becoming worried that I will run out of money one day. My FICO was 790+ for 25 years and is now 620 due to working overseas and not being aware of some oversights I made. I bring this up because any manufactured spend or AOR for cash bonuses are not possible.
Background and limitations: My sister is 53 and disabled. She is in constant pain. Her prognosis is, baring a medical breakthrough, that she will not be getting better. Further, the disease has ravaged her body. She is rarely able to leave the house. When she does, it's at night and exhausting just to make a trip to the grocery store 2x/month. She has terrible credit due to previous medical bills and lack of income. She has had 14 surgeries and, due to light sensitivity from the disease, she stays in the dark with sunglasses on- she can only use a computer for a couple hours per day because of this. We do not, and cannot, live in the same area. So, although I can teach/train her in person, she will be on her own to execute the plan.Selling on eBay is an option. But I am at a loss for what she could sell given the limited time she could be online, coupled with the physical demands of acquiring, packaging, etc etc of the items being sold.My sister's life is, frankly, not a life. I downplay the money I give her, but she feels as though she is a burden. Because of this, her prognosis, and her quality of life, she's losing her will to fight on. Besides the financial aspects, I believe earning an income would help her self esteem and sense of worth.Sorry this post is so long- thanks for reading.Ideas?...

Which EBT programs allow cash back?
Added on : Saturday April 13th 2013 11:01:03 PM
This evening while checking out at a Von's grocery store in Southern California, the customer in front of me, who had a couple of food items, asked the checker for $200 dollars in cash. After the customer left the line and went over to the store's lottery ticket machine to buy tickets, the box boy asked the check-out clerk how she was able to give him cash. She replied that some EBT programs allow cash to be given back.The checker has been employed at this Von's store for a couple of years so I would imagine she understands what can and cannot be allowed, but I was curious. This article Boston Globe references prosecution for giving cash to the EBT customer. The couple looked to be in their late 50's, and although not visibly disabled in any way, I thought permits there is a disability program that has EBT and doesn't require the cash to be spent on food only.

My employer (big business with thousands of employees) made an error and deposited my weeks paycheck 3 times in a row using direct deposit. I immediately withdrew the money off at the ATM and it's now showing as a negative. What was funny about it was that the prepaid debit card had temporarily disabled my account shortly after I withdrew it for 1 day. After 1 day, my account was opened back up and both of the the deposits were retracted. My account is now in the negative of a few hundred dollars. My question is, when dealing with a prepaid debit card, if a big company takes the money out of the account (but it's not there) and it's showing a negative, does that mean that the prepaid debit card company ended up paying them back out of their own pocket while they wait for me to pay the negative balance?
Federal healthcare law could boost some California premiums by 30%
Added on : Thursday March 28th 2013 05:01:05 PM
a bit confused by this article. currently covered by employer, article makes it seem like our premiums will go up next year (i'm guessing increase will be spread through all employees??). It also says that premiums will be lower for those meeting 400% federal poverty level threshold, does this mean it "may" be cheaper to get coverage outside of my employer?? anyone have any idea what this boils down to in plain language. linkThe federal healthcare law will help cause insurance premiums to rise 30% on average for many middle-income Californians next year, but lower-income consumers could save up to 84%, a new government report says.Covered California, the state agency that commissioned the report issued Thursday, said federal subsidies and decreases in out-of-pocket medical expenses should offset most of the higher premiums for people buying their own health coverage.Officials said about 570,000 Californians who have annual incomes between 250% and 400% of the federal poverty line and have individual policies now will pay 47% less, on average, due to federal subsidies.These state estimates offer the first detailed look at how healthcare costs may change for millions of Californians next year and the various factors that will affect families' overall medical expenses.Quiz: Test your healthcare knowledgeThe affordability of coverage will play a pivotal role in whether California can successfully implement President Obama's Affordable Care Act and reach the goal of extending coverage to many of the state's 5.6 million uninsured residents.Even supporters of the federal overhaul have expressed concern that the government requirement for richer benefits and new consumer protections will drive up premiums too high.It is critical for us to understand the true financial impact on Californians as we move toward 2014, and this is an important step in determining strategies to help protect consumers from cost increases," said Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California. There may be increases in premiums depending on what product people buy."These changes would most immediately affect the 2 million Californians who purchase their own coverage and the states uninsured residents.This analysis by the Milliman consulting firm did not look at premiums for the 19 million Californians who receive health benefits from larger employers. The federal law has a smaller effect on those plans.Next month, health insurers must submit their proposed rates to the state for coverage starting Jan. 1. Covered California plans to select certain companies for its state-run exchange and negotiate rates by mid-May.Insurance industry officials said they support the state's efforts to expand and improve health coverage, but those changes carry a price.These richer benefits, more predictable coverage and subsidies come at a cost," said Patrick Johnston, president of the California Assn. of Health Plans. All these expansions add to the already increasing cost of care."In California, individuals earning up to about $16,000 will qualify for an expansion of Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program for the poor and disabled.Beyond that, people and households earning up to 400% of the federal poverty level are eligible for federal subsidies. That income threshold goes up to about $46,000 for an individual and $94,000 for a family of four.Without subsidies above those income levels, the report said, consumers face 30% higher premiums and a 20% increase in their total cost of medical care when lower deductibles and cost sharing are factored in. Families earning less than $60,000 a year fare much better, in line to save 84% on premiums and 76% on the total cost of their care.Age is another dividing line. The report estimates that young people under 25 could incur premium increases that are 25% higher than average, while older consumers could face a smaller increase, of 12%, under new limits on how much rates can vary based on age. Milliman said younger consumers stand to earn less and many will qualify for subsidies that help mitigate higher rates.Absent any changes from the federal law, Milliman said individual premiums in California would increase 9%, on average, in 2014 due to rising medical costs and other factors.In January, most Americans must purchase health insurance or pay a penalty under the federal law.The Milliman report attributed much of the cost increase overall to the new guaranteed coverage for all applicants, including sicker patients who were previously denied insurance. Adding those higher-cost policyholders is expected to increase medical costs.New federal requirements that individual policies cover a higher percentage of overall medical costs and include 10 essential health benefits, such as prescription drugs and mental health services, also contribute to higher costs.
(for a change) A car crash thread.
Added on : Thursday March 28th 2013 01:01:25 PM
My car was driven into earlier today. I was driving through a parking lot when an 88 year woman in a Buick backed out of a disabled space into the side of my car. She can barely walk and essentially had no idea what she'd done. I called the police and thankfully they wrote a accident report, with a "Limitations on Backing" violation for the other driver. She has insurance.I want no ding on my insurance history. I want a rental for however long it takes to fix my car. Should I bother involving my insurance?

Severance payment help
Added on : Wednesday February 27th 2013 01:01:03 PM
I need help determining the best course of action for a severance package. I am now permanently disabled and this is the last step in a long and difficult process. I am struggling with some cognitive issues so please be gentle ... not asking to be fleeced, I need help.
My salary was $93000 and the company is offering me 1 month of severance or $7750. After taxes & deductions, the severance payment will be $5369.
My disability payment is $4600/month, but it will be reduced dollar for dollar by the severance agreement. So my check will be zero for the month I am paid. The net gain for a 1 month severance package is roughly $769.
Could the company put $800 in a 401k package and I come out ahead?
The company has private stock, do you know how that would be taxed?
Any and I mean any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ...
Where to get yield?
Added on : Friday February 22nd 2013 11:01:05 AM
I'm currently helping a relative set up a retirement portfolio. Mid 50s, disabled, recently received a lump-sum from social security. Absolutely cannot earn a salary or do much of anything to earn a living. My experience is all with common stocks, mostly value-investing (obviously) in an aggressive way because I am young.1. In normal economic times, I would recommend that this person put a lot into bonds. However, bond yields are awful right now, and I believe they are risky because interest rates can't go much lower, but could go way up. Am I wrong? Are there certain bonds I should consider? If so, what vehicle should I use (managed mutual fund, index fund, etc.)?2. What about preffered stock? Are these a better risk/reward ratio right now? If so, how should I buy them (again, mutual fund, index fund, etc.)3. Defensive common stock? I'm thinking about utilities, safer companies like PG, JNJ, pharmaceutical and healthcare stocks? These have better dividend yields than many of the bonds out there, and more upside, but they also have some downside risk.4. Something else I'm completely overlooking?5. What would be an optimal portfolio of these asset classes? i.e. 50% utility/defensive stocks, 30% preferred stock, 10% S&P 500, 10% mid to small cap? I'm looking for maybe 8% return with the lowest risk I can get.
Standard disclaimer: I will not interpret anything as financial, tax, or legal advice. Just looking for ideas.
Free Google Drive Site Hosting
Added on : Sunday February 10th 2013 10:00:39 AM
You can now create sites in Google Drive, but it's just a nice trick, not a full-fledged feature. To get started, create a new folder, right-click the folder and use the "share" feature to make the folder public. All the files of the site you want to create will be placed inside this folder.Unfortunately, you can't create the HTML, JS and CSS files in Google Drive using the default apps, so you need install a third-party app like Drive Notepad, Neutron Drive or create these files using a native text editor or HTML editor. Make sure you have all the required files, including a file named index.html. When you upload the files to the folder you've just created, disable the conversion option.http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2013/02/google-drive-site-hosti...

Home Invasion (wallet stolen)--Next Steps?
Added on : Monday January 28th 2013 05:00:57 AM
Friday night someone broke into our house. The thieves did not get further than the garage, but the consequences will be felt for a while:1. They stole my wallet (it had fallen out of my bag, and I did't realize it). I believe I have cancelled all the cards (I did not have an updated copy of all my cards). I have put a security freeze on at all 3 credit agencies and will go to the BMV on Tuesday for a new license (I want them to issue me a new DL# and I don't want documents mailed to the house right now). Is there anything else I should do?2. The material cost of everything stolen is less than $1,000. Is there any reason at all I would file with my insurance? I feel like it would be sending them a note asking to be charged more at renewal.3. My kids don't feel safe, and I am not exactly cozy right now. We have a 10+ year old alarm system that has been disabled, but I am wondering if it would be smart to have a new system installed and get monitoring. I am extremely frugal, so this would be an emotional decision, but I do not want to lock into a multiyear year contract for $$$ either. I have read the long discussion about SmartHome, etc. Is there one "off-brand" company that is more recommended than the others?We are very blessed, and I am grateful no one was hurt (my 13 year old daughter came home from a church activity and found the garage open). Thanks for any suggestions!

So I feel like a dolt -- Mint.com has a whole other transactions section for "Investments" that I never noticed (it defaults to "Cash & Credit"), and someone went to town with a copy (presumably) of my Schwab Brokerage Debit card (Visa) without me noticing back in September/October (transactions are listed in the Investments section of Mint.com's Transactions page). It was right after a legit ATM transaction by me -- I always check for skimmers, but looks like I missed the skimmer this time. I only use Schwab for emergency ATM cash, so it is not an account I track in detail outside of Mint.com.Anyways, I was happily ignorant to the transactions until today (although confused how my balances had dropped by about $600 over three months, the amount of the fraudulent transactions). Called up Schwab started a dispute process. Very friendly, hopefully I get some money back, but... yeah, it's been a few months.Tips I've found so far:
1. File a police report.
2. Sign and return the fraud dispute paperwork Schwab sends out to me of course.
3. "Cancel" the debit card and get a new one (the Customer Service rep could not disable my current card... only send a new one? Might have to call back and push the issue...)
4. Transfer cash out of the brokerage account to $1 (especially due to #3...).
5. Contact the merchant(s)... At over 60 days out, they might tell me to pound sand, but I'll probably give a couple a try, who knows.And if anyone's curious where they bought things... all things in CA (I'm on the east coast) -- Baja Fresh, Pet Extreme, Subway, Waterbar in San Fran, Party City, Strizzi's in Fremont CA and a few other places. So they enjoyed themselves, but seemingly in moderation . Note that Mint.com ignores these transactions since they were under an Investment account. The transactions are there in Mint, but didn't show up under my spend notifications (and are not automatically categorized -- I assume they don't have merchant codes attached like credit card transactions).Any tips other than the above? Other experiences? TIA all. Learn from my mistake and as a PSA, double check to see if you have any financial "blind spots"!

Citi VAN (Virtual Account Numbers) change woes

A week ago I received an email from Citibank that they were going to discontinue the downloadable version of their Virtual Account Numbers application which can be used to get a one-time use credit card number for use online.I had used the web based version in the past, but I found the downloadable version to be much more convenient, so I was a little upset.But now that I have tried to use the web-based version today, my upset has turned to anger.They have implemented new security measures on the web-based app that makes it almost unusable for it's intended purpose.Aside from the fact that you need to log in TWICE to use it (once on the web site and a second time within the app that pops up), aside from having to click on several buttons and check boxes to get to it, aside that the web-app itself lacks some very useful functionality that the downloadable version has (like drag and drop, always one top, etc.). The biggest, most ridiculous issue I have with the web-based VAN is that every time you launch it IT HAS TO CALL YOUR PHONE TO GIVE YOU A SECURITY CODE THAT HAS TO BE ENTERED ON THE WEB SITE!!!!!Are you kidding me? Every time you need a VAN, you have to allow the system to call you or send you a text message with a code that you need to enter on the web site to allow the VAN app to run.I use VAN all the time, this is just not acceptable to me.I called and had a long discussion with the supervisor for the Citi website, and he was very courteous and took my complaints and said he would notify the people that needed to know. He also said that he did not think the verification would happen every time I tried to start the app, but it did for me. Try it out yourself and let me know if you have the same issue.
If you also have a problem with this, please call or otherwise notify them to let them know!Supposedly, the downloadable app will be disabled starting tomorrow, so call now to give them your opinion!Thanks!
No reward received from Salli Mae Visa
Added on : Saturday December 22nd 2012 01:01:07 PM
Started with the SM Visa in March. When we approached the conversion to Barclay's SM Master Card date in late October I applied for a $350 'Statement Check'. Received an email confirmation. Never received check or credit of any kind.Tried to contact SM but website disabled and telephone number on back of card no longer works.Emailed SM (advocate@salliemae.com) and received a call that checks had been mailed by Barclay's(!) on 12/6. Never received.Tried contacting Barclay's by telephone and email, they deny any knowledge.Do I have any options? Obviously legal action impractical. Any leverage I could apply? I believe SM may be in violation of Fair Credit Billing Act etc but fat chance (excuse the pun) of finding a US attorney to pursue.Have others had the same experience?

Linksys EA4500 App-Enabled N900 Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with Gigabit and USB for $138.27 + FSS @ Amazon.comLINKKEY FEATURES
Maximum wireless-n speed (up to 450 + 450 Mbps) for ultra-fast wireless transfer rates
Simultaneous dual-band to maximize throughput and help avoid network interference
Maximum range and reliability with full 3x3 MIMO antenna array
Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps) ports for speeds 10x faster than Ethernet
USB Port to add a range of devices such as storage and printersThis is the lowest I've seen this priced before. Most of the bad reviews are complaining about the Cisco Connect Cloud service that they FORCED users to use with a "backdoor" update to the firmware. They've done some serious backpedaling since then, but I would still advise that you make sure that automatic firmware updates are disabled. My two cents... Other than that, this is a pretty powerful router. They haven't changed the user interface much, which I like, because I've been using Linksys stuff for years.FYI inSSIDer is one of several free programs out there that will show you the wireless networks in your vicinity. It's very helpful for choosing appropriate channels to avoid interference. LINK

Amex Membership Rewards: Earn Points section is down
Added on : Sunday August 12th 2012 08:00:47 AM
Has anyone else noticed that the Earn Points section on the Membeship Rewards site has down for a while now? The website states that they are experiencing technically difficulty and have disabled that portion of the site. Shouldn't a company as large as AMEX be able to fix something like that quickly?

The new Google Wallet update now stores any credit or debit card in their cloud server and allows you to pay with those cards at any NFC terminal (obviously your phone must have an NFC chip). A very cool development as it is a pain carrying around a ton of cards. Some drawbacks- Only works at retailers that have an NFC reader
- Category rewards are going to be determined by your issuing bank, to be determined if they will give you bonus with Google taking the charge first then passing it to your card bank. (AMEX won't give category rewards)
- Security issues, even though you can remote disable your device if lost and the servers should be secure, there is always a risk having all your cards out in the digital world.

Catch on Universal Life Insurance?
Added on : Thursday July 12th 2012 02:00:46 PM
Okay so I've always heard Universal and Whole Life are bad deals and to buy term. A 62 and 53 yr old couple with a 20 yr old disabled child that lives with them is getting sold a universal survivorship life insurance policy with a 1 million death benefit. This is with New York Life. The illustration shows that they pay about $21k per year for 10 years and then nothing after that. Then they are guaranteed the 1 million tax free when both dies before age 101. They want the insurance to protect their child.
Taking the 21k and just investing it at 8% return would take about 26 years to get 1 million if only contributing for the first 10 years. Is there a bad deal or catch here?
$5,125 t-mobile bill on (unreported) lost/stolen phone
Added on : Tuesday July 10th 2012 05:00:44 PM
tl;dr? Screwed up. Didn't report child's phone missing soon enough - huge bill - what do?Child, 11, has one of four phones on my T-Mobile plan, lives most of the time with mother, not in my home.
Child takes summer trip with grandparents and misplaces phone.
Phone is later believed lost on airplane, but child misplaces things all the time - plus confusion from above.
NO CALL IS MADE TO DISABLE OR REPORT PHONE MISSING
Phone is used to make $5,125 worth of calls to Liberia and Sierra Leon between 6/26 and 7/8
On 7/9 T-Mobile notices and disables the phone for me.
Wife talks to T-Mobile and they "generously" offer to reduce the overages to $1,400Other than "pay your bills, deadbeat" do I have any options? The contract is pretty clear that I'm responsible for calls made if I don't report it stolen.I recognize the lesson here is stop giving electronics capable of running up 5k bills to a child, call in stolen/lost phones immediately, and disable international calling on pretty much every phone you own regardless.I suppose I already know the answer, but hope springs eternal...

Mortgage Protection policy - is it worth it?
Added on : Thursday June 14th 2012 10:00:49 AM
Shortly after I bought a house I received several pieces of junk mail offering to pay the mortgage in full if I become disabled. I just need some advice if this is something that I should consider. THis is life and anything could happen. I'm single, noone else in the household works. So I tough it might be a good idea to have this type of coverage. What do you guys think? Also, are there any hidden secrets about this type of insurance I should be aware of? Thanks!

Supplemental Disability for Federal Employee
Added on : Sunday April 22nd 2012 03:14:16 PM
I have read Link and Link but need some more guidance. I removed my original post in the thread at OP request and started my own. Plus I know there are quite a few federal employees on this forum so it could help them as well.I'm actually looking to get a new supplemental policy for myself and would like some opinions. Some background: 24yr GS-12 federal employee 68809/yr. FERS disability coverage is 60% first year and 40% after. I currently live with my brother and just one of our income is enough to support the whole household. However even on my own I can live off 40% after some cuts (retirement, newish car, entertainment) although I would like the extra for quality of life plus actually put something towards retirement. I currently have AICPA plan (4000 month) which I know is not good and am looking to maybe replace it with something else.I found two options:First is this group plan for federal employees called FedAdvantage. Information can be found in the following links:
Details
Booklet
Brochure
I'm considering the Premier Plan with 70% income replacement to 65 after 90 day waiting period. It has FERS and SSDI offsetting rules. Inflation protection is included under premier. Plan is also guaranteed issue (although I have no health issues).Disability definition is:You are unable to earn:During the Elimination Period and the next 24 months of Sickness or accidental injury, morethan 80% of Your Predisability Earnings at Your Own Occupation for any employer in Your Local Economy; andafter such period, more than 60% of Your Predisability Earnings from any employer in Your Local Economy at any gainful occupation for which You are reasonably qualified taking into account Your training, education and experience.Mental coverage limited to 24 months except for schizophrenia, dementia, and organic brain disease are not limited.Residual Coverage. From what I understand 77% minus earned income for first 24 months and 77% minus 50% of earned income after(100% max).Cost is based on income(I plan to retire at 57 or earlier). Under 35: .0038 35-45: .0057 45-55: .0106 55+: .129
So for me initial cost is $22 a month and as high as $74 (assuming they don't raise rates which I know they can) with an average of $40 over 32 year planned career.The other option is two separate Guardian Provider Plus policies I got quoted for. It is to age 65 with residual disability and COLA.
It is a $1250/month (Approx 20%) 90 day wait at $34/month and a $900/month (Approx 15%) 365 day wait at $23/month for total of $57 month.
Plan is guaranteed and non cancellable unlike the previous and true own occupation with no offset rules or limit on mental disorders.
I don't think the residual disability is as good. First 12 months it's replacement of lost income but after benefit is proportionate to loss of income. So say if I'm 50% disabled then first 12 months I get the full 35%(amount I'm insured) but after I get only 17.5% from my understanding. So I will have 85% income first year and 67.5 after.My understanding of the fedAdvantage plan is that I will have 77% of income first 2 years and and 100% after.Guardian is more portable (don't plan to leave federal job though) but fedAdvantage will keep up to income increases (at increase costs).Help me decide please.
Disability Insurance: What a policy must have
Added on : Sunday April 22nd 2012 12:07:53 AM
I posted something similar to this a couple of years ago. People found it helpful, so I'm posting it again.What a good disability insurance policy must have:Guaranteed Continuable and Non-CancellableInsurance Company cannot raise ratesInsurance Company cannot drop coverage amounts or make contractual changesCoverage for own occupation (quasi own occupation coverage)The insurance company cant force the insured back to work in another occupation (If one chooses to work in another occupation, they will be still considered to be partially disabled if they have a loss of income.).Coverage until age 65 years oldCoverage for both total and partial disability without having to be totally disabled firstCoverage that keeps up with inflation
Options that are nice to have but may not be necessary:Coverage past the age 65 and/or coverage that protects retirement plan contributionsTrue Own Occupation Coverage
If one cannot do their regular occupation, they are considered totally disabled regardless of income earned from another occupation.No limitations on mental/nervous disordersNo integration with Social Security or other government sourcesRecovery benefits until age 65 assuming that the person could have an income loss following a disability despite being back to work full time.Future Insurability Option Rider if the amount of benefit that can be purchased is less than what will be needed in the future. This allows additional coverage to be purchased in the future with no medical underwriting. Caveat: All individual situations are different. Policies with the characteristics that are described here are only available to white collar workers. Disability income insurance should be explored if the individual or their family needs income to continue in the event of a sickness or an accident. Group policies through work typically need to be supplemented. This is due to both insufficient insurance amounts and contractual terms that make it more difficult to have a legitimate claim despite suffering an income loss.

Possible changes for 'Stretch IRAs' (inherited IRAs)
Added on : Wednesday February 08th 2012 09:42:31 AM
See below Bloomberg coverage. Although passage in current political environment would seem unlikely, bad ideas tend to hang around waiting their turn at the front ...Sen. Baucus Eyes Inherited IRAs for $4.6B
By Richard Rubin - 2/6/2012
copyright BloombergSenate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus is proposing tougher requirements on inherited individual retirement accounts that would require younger beneficiaries to pay taxes over five years instead of spreading them over their lifetimes. The changes, to be considered by his committee today, would raise $4.6 billion for the Treasury over the next decade, according to a statement from the senators office. Baucus, a Montana Democrat, wants to use the money to help pay for a highway bill the panel is debating in Washington, according to the statement. Baucuss proposal would curtail a tax-planning technique that allows the buildup of tax-free gains inside inherited retirement accounts. Currently, holders of inherited IRAs can take their required taxable distributions over their anticipated lifespan. It would really change the whole playing field for retirement planning, said Ed Slott, an IRA adviser in Rockville Centre, New York. That would make things simpler, but it would really put a crimp in the whole legacy planning people do for IRAs. The proposal includes exceptions for the account owners spouse, beneficiaries within 10 years in age of the account owner, and disabled and chronically ill people, according to a summary by the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. Children would also be exempt from the new five-year rule until they reached adulthood. Taxable Distributions Owners of regular IRAs must begin taking taxable distributions at age 70 1/2, and they must be taken according to a life-expectancy calculation. Baucus proposal would take effect for people who die starting in 2013. Depending on how the bill is written, beneficiaries in some cases might be able to use rollovers into their own IRAs to avoid the required distributions, said Mary Ann Mancini, who leads the private client group at Bryan Cave LLP in Washington. Mancini said many of her clients dont use IRAs as an estate-planning tool because beneficiaries often want to spend their inheritances. If you can keep it in the IRA with tax-free growth, the longer you can keep it in the IRA, people can come out with millions, she said. The problem is people dont keep it in the IRA. Young people want the money. A Nonstarter Baucuss proposal would return IRAs to their intended purpose as a retirement savings tool and not an estate-planning tool known as a stretch IRA, Slott said. The change, if enacted, would cause people to spend the money in their IRAs rather than leave it as an inheritance for their children, he said. It sounds good, but I think its a nonstarter, Slott said. Theres too much invested in the whole stretch IRA concept. John Olivieri, a partner in the private clients group at White & Case LLP in New York, said the change could increase the taxable income of heirs each year for five years and may push them into a higher income tax bracket, he said. Another potential benefit to the federal government is that because distributions would be taken out faster, there would be less time for the money to accumulate in the IRA tax-free, Olivieri said. Once the money is out of the account it can no longer grow tax-free, he said. Thats where the government may be planning to get the most benefit from this.

How much disability insurance should one get?
Added on : Wednesday January 11th 2012 06:12:19 PM
After doing extensive research on this forum, DH and I are going to get life insurance. $500k SBLI whole life for me, $750k term for him. However, I am wondering whether we should get disability insurance as well since after all one is much more likely to get disabled than killed. I have disability insurance from work which pays 70% of my salary should I get disabled. So I am doing research for DH. We are in a relatively comfortable financial situation. If he is disabled, we can rely one my income if we live frugally. What concerns me is the medical expenses --physical therapy etc. I asked for some quotes. For $10k/month ($120k/annual) benefit, annual premium is about $4000/year. Waiting period 90 days, pays up to age 65. There are options to add riders which requires more premium. DH is 44-year old now and earns about $200k/year. We have 2 children under 10. What do you think the monthly benefit we should shoot for?

Business Loan $50k SBA, Minority & Disabled Veteran 780 Score
Added on : Tuesday December 20th 2011 06:16:39 PM
I am in the process of opening a retail store for my business. I am a disabled vet who receives about $300 from the VA. I have applied for a loan from Superior Financial and have been pre approved for $8000. When my biz plan is submitted they said i could get up to $25k. I will then apply for another loan to get the other $25k.I meet with a SBA counselor and correspond via email, he mentions in this economic time it is extremely hard to get a loan for a start up company. His suggestion is to make my plan flawless before submitting and i am doing that at this time including resume and articles i have published as well as references.I dont have much just a $5k vehicle and my current equipment and monitors i guess totaling another $5k so not much collateral at all but if i go the SBA guarantee way and the Patriot Loan way i am not sure if i need much collateral.The company will be an IT services repair based business. It will be targeted to consumers offering fair pricing, most of my repairs are $50.I was wondering if there was any suggestions or opinions you all have for me. Also pardon my ignorance, i am an IT expert. Financial and business aspects are things that i am and will have to learn.

Nobody mentioned about the router on sale at Newegg.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124276The reviews are mixed. Some reported heat issue, but seems to be resolvable by placing the router vertically. It may not be as good as E3000, but at less than half of its price, I will give it a try. If the firmware doesn't work out, I will try Tomato on it.Regular price at $129.99A review on Newegg about Tomato on the device:Pros: Used Tomato on this router for version 2 and it performs well.
Better than dd-wrt on this router.Cons: none.Other Thoughts: Tomato download for WRT-310n V2 ONLY!

Question: Best checking/mm account without debit card usage?
Added on : Saturday November 12th 2011 09:09:09 PM
My husband is disabled and will be receiving regular checks for his medicare set aside settlement. I need an interest bearing account without any mandatory count of how many times to use it per month. Basically the money's just gonna sit unless he needs to pay for a doctor's visit or prescriptions, tests, etc. which in a normal month will only be 1-2 times. I'm fine with an internet only bank but I can't seem to find one that doesn't make you use the debit card 10-12 times a month or have direct deposit. Any suggestions?

Startup Defender is a small program that sits in your Windows tray and constantly monitors the startup locations on your PC. If a program tries to write itself into any startup location Startup Defender will popup windows and ask if the program is allowed to place itself to start automatically with Windows. Also you can disable/enable any programs that are currently installed to startup auotmatically.If there is an entry that you are not sure what it is, you can Google it and to see if it is needed or even harmful and choose if you want it to load at startup or not. For the annoying programs that try to repeatedly place themselves in the autorun for Windows you can click the auto block so that Startup Defender stops them with out you having to bother with them any more.
I started thinking about home security a year ago after hearing about a friend of a friend coming home to cleaned out apartment. Apartment living seems to make it a bit more difficult as far as installing security systems. I'm currently living in an apartment and my door is down a hallway so that the door is only visible to my closest neighbor and not the parking lot and other buildings. The layout seems like it could provide good coverage for a criminal, which is why I've thought about this even more. At the least I was thinking some high dB sirens (one directed out towards the parking lot area and one near the doorway) that could not be easily disabled might draw attention more than with homes given the number of nearby apartments. I searched the forum to see what I could find. I came across an archived thread Home Security Alarm Systems / Video Surveillance - Protect your assets and decided to start a new one up to see what others are doing today.What are any of you doing as far as alarms and surveillance? What have you apartment dwelling individuals done? I know someone is bound to suggest a firearm, and I stand behind home defense and own firearms myself. However, it doesn't help if you are not home at the time.Thoughts? What are you doing?

Yet Another "Walking Away" thread
Added on : Friday October 14th 2011 06:00:17 PM
All,The facts are these:
100% Disabled (per SS standards), 65 Year old mother-in-law (Widow)
INCOME: Current income of $4800/month tax free.
November 1, income permanently decreases to 1,100 per month tax free (SS + Disability combined)
November 1, one-time lump-sum payment of $7,500 will be received (tax free)Her DEBTS
--Her home is approximately $40k under water, but she is not on the primary mortgage. She *is* on the hook for a $14k
HEL. She is in a recourse state, but again she is not liable on the primary mortgage.
--Car loan $225/month, roughly 8k balance, unsure of insurance costs.
--Current carrying cost on the house is approximately $2200 per month ($1550 primary mortgage payment, HEL payment, utilities). She stopped paying
the primary mortgage last month. She's still paying the HEL as she is personally liable. There is no way for her to remain
there without my wife and I footing the bill for everything above $1100 per month [not a possibility at this point in career].
- No CC debtNO liquid assets.
We plan to move her out here, and to eventually get her into low-income housing (could take more than a year due to wait lists). Until then, we will pay for all expenses in excess of her income. Living with us is not an option, nor will it ever be.
Questions: How does one go about "handing over the keys" when walking away from one's house?
When she defaults on the Home Equity Loan, her credit will be trashed, but what does it really matter? Kentucky Property taxes: She owes approximately $1,800 at the end of this year. Does anyone know if SS/Disability can be garnished for failure to pay property taxes? (My understanding is that typically only child support and federal tax liens can garnish these protected funds.
I'm sorry this is a slightly disjointed thread. This was sprung upon us and has thrown me for a loop.Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.ZeeOhhSix
FWF Heavy Hitter 101
Added on : Monday October 10th 2011 03:00:41 AM
I am still learning the fundamentals of becoming a FWF guru. SISs Heavy Hitters thread really opened my eyes. I was extremely narrow-minded since joining I thought Id share some of my journey in understanding the important concepts. Im an engineer so naturally I felt there has to be some magic formula is deciphering opportunities. What I learned is that the magic unicorn of substantial profit with minimal risk and effort is non-existent.The basis of many deals starts with a credit card with some type of CashBack. Maximizing that X% CashBack is the ultimate goal. The first step is to use the credit card for purchases where it makes sense in your daily life and pay it off monthly. Obviously some cards have certain categories of purchases while others apply to all purchases. To stretch the savings, you may even be able to buy gift cards with your high CashBack card to use at places where you could not realize that level of savings. Establishing your credit card ladder is based on your personal tolerance. I have 4 daily credit cards currently and I am at capacity of what I want to manage.Beyond the basics, there are other ways to squeeze out the CashBack. Phase 1 Purchase, Phase 2 - ?, Phase 3 - Profit. This is the black box where you get creative, where the FWF community does not want to spoon feed, and where you may need to assume risk and exert effort. It is good idea to network and I plan to come out of my shell a bit more and interact with some of veterans and rising stars here. While I dont have much to contribute now, I feel it is a matter of time before I discover a Heavy Hitter concept.Before embarking on any endeavors it may be a good idea to mitigate risk and disable cash advances or set the limit to $0 if the credit card company allows it. If they do not, a small trial purchase to minimize financial impact would be wise. The next logical idea would be to purchase items which can be resold or cashed out resulting in a profit when calculating Cash Back. The mint direct ship coins program was one example of this. Some more examples on these forums are buying/reselling precious metals, in demand toys/electronics, imported goods, tickets, discounted gift cards, items which have more value when taken apart, and items which have more value when hacked/upgraded. Coupons, reward programs, rebates, passive and active CashBack sites, pricing errors, store specific credit cards, bankruptcies, FW hot deals, and Slick Deals are your friends. You can even take a small loss on the actual product price and still profit!If you can find a prepaid debit card which allows loading via credit card this is a possible money maker. There are vast arrays of companies online and in the stores which offer these products with different restrictions. It is important to note load fees, monthly fees, ATM fees, etc when selecting the best product. Additionally, depending on your credit card or bank, there may be ways to churn these. Searching FWF for AA (adverse action) and mid-cycle payments is recommended for strategy planning.There are opportunities of funding a checking, savings, investment (CDs, Stock, Forex) account with a credit card. Ask yourself if there are ways to open multiple accounts (personal, business, family members, etc). Funding online casinos, albeit riskier in my opinion, is another option. Buying money orders or travelers cheques with credit is tough, but there are likely ways to work the system. You may be able to use a debit card too and realize a profit.Then there are opportunities which arise dealing with making a minimum purchase and getting a bonus. The Mall Rewards Discover and Publix gas gift card promotions come to mind. Getting creative may mean going to multiple stores, finding friendly cashiers/managers, returning items, or using gift cards to buy other gift cards.Taking advantage of promotions/referrals for opening all kinds of accounts or signing up for services (credit monitoring) is also a common tactic. These may be cash bonuses, electronics, frequent flyer miles, or higher than normal interest returns. Some of these have fine print and tiers to get rewards. If you cant take the time to decipher the requirements, you are probably in the wrong forum.Using payment processors is another trending money maker with much risk. Understanding why others were blacklisted with previous services is important. There are potential ways to structure payments and the tea party A<->B transactions will not cut it. Think out of the box and use multiple accounts, virtual numbers, business accounts, and random charge amounts will help. In your arsenal of tricks, there are ways to leverage and make better use of your assets. Consolidate credit lines when beneficial. Find out if you can get checks for negative balances for ANY account (credit cards, utility bills, taxes, etc). Use credit card payment services when profitable to pay everything, such as tuition, student loans, rent, mortgage, taxes, insurance, car payments, and other bills. Structure payments to meet the promotional period of your card (if any) and pre-pay or stock up when it makes sense. Determine if your credit card company zeros out a small balance each month and take advantage of it. Refinance your loans and make payments towards loans aggressively or conservatively depending on the situation. High interest on a car would have an aggressive pay down schedule, while low interest rates on a student loan may be paid back slowly due to the disability insurance aspect.While not as prevalent as in the past, App-O-Rama opportunities still exist to take advantage of 0 or low APR cash advances. Taking these funds and depositing them in low risk investments or rewards checking accounts and making minimum payments can add up to significant profits. A recurring theme of using family or business accounts here is a typical AOR concept. The important catch here is the balance transfer fee needs to be capped (i.e. $75) or a very low rate for this to work. Reward checking typically provides a much higher interest return than normal checking accounts. Stipulations of direct deposit and minimum use are typical. Additionally, the rates are sometimes subject to change and many small banks with poor websites and limited staff use this to tease customers only to change the rate later on. Even with the negatives, good opportunities still exist.Moving forward, I have realized there is no magic formula. The same strategies work from the Heavy Hitters thread as they always have. Todays environment is tougher; the banks and stores are closing many doors. I am confident we all can continue to open new doors and become Heavy Hitters in our own ways. Additionally, I feel that we can discuss deals with a common understanding of why we cant spell out every detail and follow FWF etiquette.My goal of posting this was selfish. I hope to look back at it when Im seeking inspiration for the next idea. As a side effect, I hope it will spawn new ideas, serve as a framework of how 90% of FWF opportunities are born, and that FWF will contribute to the quest of continuing to make each and every one of our wallets fatter.
Help fighting parking citation
Added on : Friday September 23rd 2011 03:00:08 AM
I was visiting the University of Arizona's library at 8:30pm and ended up parking across the street for one hour. A sign was posted saying a permit is required from 7 am - 5pm; Mon - Fri. I ended up parking along the curb behind four other cars which were already parked. One hour later, a $60 "Prohibited Parking Violation" was on my car.I have attached pictures of where my car was parked and a copy of the citation. According to the university's website, prohibited parking is defined as:

Restricted Areas

These spaces require special permits:
Service vehicle areas (denoted by signs and/or yellow pavement markings)
Disabled spaces (denoted by signs)
Reserved spaces (denoted by signs)
Meters reserved with blue bags
University Mall area
Carpool Spaces
Vehicles parking in these spaces are subject to immediate impoundment (immobilization or tow).
Prohibited Areas

Do not park in:
Fire zones (denoted by signs and/or red pavement markings)
Ramps for the disabled
Sidewalks
Thoroughfares
Driveways
Parking lot aisles
Hatchmarked crosswalks
Parking a vehicle on a landscape area(s) (e.g. gravel, dirt or lawn).
University Mall between the Cactus garden and the west University gate
Any areas necessary for vehicular movement or garbage pickup
Meters reserved with Red bags
http://parking.arizona.edu/regulations/where.phpI have 14 days to appeal the ticket. How should I go about fighting this ridiculous $60 citation? Please review my photos and let me know if you believe I was parking illegally according to the universities rules.Lot sign

19 years old /w no credit, not student - best credit card?
Added on : Thursday September 22nd 2011 09:00:05 PM
I was wondering if there were any options available regarding any kind of CashBack credit card for people with no credit. Basically, im 19 years old, and I've never had a credit card before. I want to get the citi card that gives %5 CashBack on Amazon.com, but I dont qualify. I cant get a student card because I'm not going to school (I am disabled). I signed up for a secured card from applied bank, which is basically a card that you pre-pay, but it allows you to build credit. Are there any other, better options out there for someone like me? Or do I just have to wait until my credit builds and in the meantime not get any CashBack?Thanks!

Datek Checks and old routing #s
Added on : Saturday September 10th 2011 03:00:10 PM
Hi. I was just wondering if checks issued by Datek were all deactivated since they switched to a new bank for checkwriting.Seems like in the system checkwriting is disabled unless you request new checks."Please make sure that you're only using checks with the routing number xxxxxxxxxx in connection with our check-writing program. Checks with a different routing number are no longer linked to your brokerage account."I was under impression routing number changes could be forwarded to the new receiving bank and those checks could still be active.

App is regularly $1. Free today only (Sept. 4).If you get drunk in one of those San Francisco bars that Apple employees frequent and you lose your Android phone, just remotely activate this app to locate your phone on a map in any web browser. Then call the San Francisco police to raid the house where your phone is hiding.I tried this app and it seems to work pretty well. Haven't tried calling the SFPD, but that worked for Apple, so why not for you?http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004R1LNGSThere are other Android remote tracking apps on the market, but I like this one the best because you can activate it through a web site instead of through text messages. I disabled text messages on my phone (because I refuse to pay for spam text messages) and just use Google Voice for free messaging.
Household Bank Mastercard Rewards gone?
Added on : Monday August 29th 2011 03:00:04 AM
I have the Household Bank Mastercard since 2005, I never had problem with my rewards sans a delayed check almost a year ago. Since late May, my rewards are gone from the account and I was told that it was a system error that affected many accounts and that they are working hard to fix it. I couldn't find anything on the Internet about it. I called them several times and they are always assuring me that I will eventually get my rewards. Anyone heard something about a similar situation? Is anything I can do?Thanks,HarisMore background (if you care to read it):
Late May I received a call from Household Bank and they told me that "my card was used in a merchant that was compromised" and they had to issue me a new card. My on-line account was immediately partially disabled and the rewards were gone.Early June, I get my replacement. No rewards, I just thought it might take a few days to come back, I might have called HB, but I am not sure.A week a later, I get the same phone call from HB (I have only used the card in a handful merchants, most of them local), I protested in frustration and pleaded to tell me the name of the merchant, NOTHING! Anyway, they expedited the card because of the second occurrence in short amount of time.A couple of days later, I get the card, still no rewards on the account. I have been calling since, I was told 2 times that I will have my rewards by the next billing cycle, but nothing happened.The last time I called they told me "they shouldn't have said "by the next billing cycle" we do not know when it is going to be fixed"The last three times I spoke to a manager which always said that I should not worry and that somebody (outside their control) is working on it. Allegedly, there is a ticket that affects many accounts. I do not understand why is taking them so long to fix this.
Recent Finance Grad
Added on : Sunday August 28th 2011 12:00:02 AM
I recently graduated from a private university in Chicago with a Bachelors degree in Finance. Classes I've taken during college included options, portfolio management and financial institutions. My college career services are poor, many of the jobs they post and say are only listed for our school are also listed at other schools such as Notre Dame. I've applied for over 50 jobs. Does anyone have any advice on the job front? I had a clerk job with the Department of Justice for the last two years of college, I was granted a Top Secret Clearance. I've applied for many government jobs, nothing! FY2011 was tight and FY2012 is much tighter, government jobs aren't working unless your a veteran or a disabled veteran, I'm neither. I've also applied at a couple of trading companies as a clerk, which has gotten me no responses. Other places I've tried are Walgreen's corporate headquarters, Federal Reserve of Chicago and Farmers. I plan to call Menards and Cabelas this week too avoid an employment gap, not sure which one pays more but I don't want to ask and risk not getting the job. Most of the emails I get are from CDW, Primerica and Northwestern mutual. I trade as much as $10,000 in stocks and have done pretty good, I also do many bank bonuses from ibankdesign.

I came home yesterday at night, and ran over a sleeping female stray cat on my driveway. Grey cat, long grey gravel driveway just didnt see her. It is not our cat, but we give her food from time to time, like 2 or 3 other neighbors. Usually, Im not a sensitive person but seeing a crying animal under my car drugging her legs wasnt pleasant. I told myself that if I see any blood in her mouth or other body openings, Ill have to help her to die, but I didnt find any signs of blood. My idea was that her legs or pelvic, or both are broken.
It was 11 pm, so I placed the cat into a cardboard box to protect from possible dangers (stray dogs etc) and left it on my porch until this morning.
This morning she was alive, so I decided to take her to a local vet. When I said stray cat they wanted to put her asleep for free, but when I mentioned that Id like to try to save her life, they said that they have to do X-ray to find out what the damage is. The doctor said that a broken pelvic is usually a reason to put a cat to sleep so it doesnt have a bad life after all, but a broken leg is not a problem. Also, the doctor said, it may be something simple and nothing may be broken to begin with. The cost of X-ray and exam is around $200, and put the cat asleep is free since it is a stray cat (I told them that I found the cat on my front yard). A true FW person inside of me told me to take the 2nd way, but because Im stupid I guess I decided to pay for the exam. Yes or No to decide that a live creature has to live or die may be hard to say when it comes to that. I dont really have extra $200 to spend on a stray cat, but WTF I didnt want to kill her without giving her a chance.
They called me an hour ago and said that the cat doesnt have any broken bones but one of her leg joints is badly dislocated and cat needs (may need?) a surgery to reattach one of her muscles. The cost of the surgery is around $500. To put her asleep is $40 now since I signed the paperwork and claimed the ownership. When I asked if the cat can recover on her own if I put her into a large dog cage I have for 3-4 weeks on my back porch, they told me it is possible, but I will have to give her pain killers they can give me for $40. And after that, she still may not recover completely.
What is your advice, people? What is a way for a true Fatwaller to have his/her animal fixed for the smallest money possible? I called a local animal shelter but they can only euthanize her. No way I can afford to spend extra $500 for a cat surgery when my relatives abroad barely have money to buy food. From my past life in a country with no vets around I know that cats are very capable to recover on their own, but still I dont want to have a disabled cat after all I have to take care for the rest of her life.
I will add a picture of the stupid cat my wife took a long time ago. The cat looks ugly as hell and was always missing one lip, but still - she is a cat  
Update (11.30pm Central Time 6/10)
The cat will have her surgery (Femoral head ostectomy) done the next week. The original vet (see the estimate attached) can do it Thursday, 6/16. I will check another place nearby and will try to contact Jeff state community college that has a vet school to see if they can do it sooner (and cheaper) than that. I will do my best to convince my wife to keep the cat after the surgery.
Thank you everyone for your time to answer my original post, advise, support of the cat, sending me money via PayPal. Right now I have $195.18 USD sent to my PayPal account for the cat from 7 people. I promise to email them unedited copies of the original receipts as soon as I can. I also promise to keep everyone here posted on the outcome of the surgery and post here the final receipt and pictures.
Update (around 3:26 pm 6/11)
The cat is in her cage now (the cage is for large dogs, so it has plenty of space), with food and water. I have put a litter box for her and to my surprise she used it drugging her body into it. While checking on her I found that she is declawed - I don't know how she has survived her 2 years outside in Alabama country (the vet said that she is about 2 years old).
It is very hot outside today and I started feeling bad for the cat seating under the tarp and breathing hard; I had to bribe my wife by telling her go and use a not-so-good Old Navy $10 off $50 coupon to bring the cage inside and keep it in my garage (the only room under my control more or less).
After me cleaning her crap for all the days ahead I may not give the cat away after all, so, please, disregard my offer to give the her away for now.
At this moment I have $329.59 USD sent to my PayPal account by 17 people.    Update 6/11 (Saturday), around 11.45 pm
The cat likes to be in the garage in her cage I think. She is relaxed, sleeps most of the time and eats quite well. She loved when I tried pet her a little bit (it sounds wrong when I admit on public that I tried to pet a female cat for some reason, I don't know why), and had a very strange reaction for a cat - started licking my fingers like a dog, non-stop, making a loud sound. Love hungry? I don't know, but that's what my wife thinks. After drinking some wine tonight, my wife said that cat doesn't look too ugly after that and she will get used to her she thinks. My wife is still in shock after FW thing, so she feels bad that she didn't like the cat before.
I have $481.39 USD sent to my PayPal for the cat from 21 people. I will be emailing unedited estimate to all of them tonight.    Update, around 11 pm, Sunday 6/12
The cat is doing OK in her cage, eats and drinks well. She can barely stand and shakes a lot while trying to do that, but still drugs her body into the litter box to use it. I had to give her Metacam pain killer she's got from the vet. The label on that one says use it for dogs only and never give it to cats, but there is no other effective medicine for cats for arthritis and so on pain I was told, so vets continue prescribe Metacam in small doses. They say in Canada it is considered to be safe for cats, but litigation here makes the label a necessary thing. The cat should be getting Metacam in a 5 lbs dose every 3 days.   
Finance, 6/12
THE SURGERY IS COVERED!!!!!
I have $761.39 USD sent to my PayPal account from 35 people. It should be more than enough to cover the cat's surgery, vaccination, possible boarding overnight and so on. Thank you to all of you who did it. I know you didn't do it for me and I shouldn't thank you because it is not what you were looking for when you send your money. But Cat can't thank you so I have to do it.
If I get anything extra later on sent to my PayPal or a different way (some folks told me they want to send personal checks) I will use it to cover $197 I spent on the cat's X-Ray, exam and pain killers, so don't send me money, please, if you don't want me to use it for that - I asked about the surgery and the surgery is fully covered as of today by 35 kind people, absolute strangers from Internet I don't know. $197 was my personal spending on the cat and I shouldn't cover it with the money sent for the surgery, but if you send me money now, when surgery is fully covered, I use your money to cover $197 because I'm a "broke member". Once again, the surgery is fully covered! Yes! Thank you, dear FW people! Whatever is left after all, is going to be donated to a local animal support group that has cats seating in glass boxes at my local PETsMART waiting for their new owners.
I promise to report how I'm going to spend every cent of the money and provide all the receipts after all.    Monday, 6/13, around noon
Ive got another estimate from a local animal clinic this morning (attached). They played with numbers a little bit and added some extra things the first place did not, but the most important thing they have mentioned the Cat needs to have her Leukemia (FIV) test done. Since we have another cat at home (my wifes cat), FIV and proper vaccination are extremely important to prevent our cat to get infected. The total with the surgery at the second clinic is $650 makes the first clinic still to be a better deal even if they add $45 FIV test, $22 Leukemia vaccination and $12 rabies. But I need to find out about the surgery supplies to have the true cost.
After doing some research I have decided not to check our local community college that has a vet program. Since Cat has money for a surgery with a pro, I dont want a student to train on it. A vet class is a nice option with no money on hand to save an animal, but since FW folks has covered the surgery Ill skip this option.
Im going to stop by at the first place (Deerfoot animal clinic) tomorrow morning on my way to work to get the original estimate updated to get their price and to schedule the surgery for Thursday if their deal with all the vaccination and tests is below $650.    
Finance update (around 10 pm, Monday, 6/13)
PayPal - $1,014.64 USD from 44 people. Amazon payments - $10 from 1 person.
Thank you! It is more than enough for anything at the moment, dear all, so please don't send any money anymore. Everything I may think of as of today is covered by you, 45 strangers from FW, and I promise to keep you updated on everything. I still need to send unedited copies of the 1st estimate to some of you - sorry, didn't have time for that but will do it ASAP.  Update, 6/14
I have the estimate from Deerfoot Animal Clinic revised by their doctor to include Rabies and FVRCP vaccination, and a combo test. Total price is $592.40 now, so it is a better deal than the 2nd place I tried. I talked about the cats lip. The cat had a very bad ulcer a long time ago that has destroyed her upper lip. There is no infection now and it there is no need to do a surgery on that.
We have the official surgery date now it is 6/16, Thursday. The surgery will be performed by doctor Russell. I will deliver the cat to the clinic on my way to work at around 8 am.  Update, 6/15
The cat is OK and is waiting on her surgery tomorrow morning. She cant eat or drink anything after midnight tonight, so she is eating now all the time.
PayPal: $1,024.05 USD from 45 people, Amazon Payments: $10 from 1 person. I sent unedited estimate to all of you (one email - northsta***@aol.com was returned as undeliverable). Update, Thursday, 6/16, 9:23 amThe surgery day is today! Cat was delivered to the clinic about an hour ago. I have added some blood work tests they recommend to any pet before sedation, and also asked to check her for ear infection and for worms, including ringworm. They will call me after the surgery to let me know how the Cat is doing. I will update you ASAP.
Update, 12.10 pm
Ive got a call from Dr. Russell 15 min ago. The Cats combo tests are all fine, but he found something else so he wanted to confirm that I still want him to proceed with the surgery. There is an abnormal growth of body tissue in the Cats throat that may or may not be cancerous. He wanted to make sure that I want him to perform a $600 surgery for a cat that may not live long. He sounded like the second possibility is really possible, but didnt confirm anything when I asked him directly since he doesnt know what that is without additional testing. After some thinking I told him to proceed with the surgery and take a test of that area to see what is going on. It is a $80 test, but since we have money to cover it and want to know what is going on, I think it makes sense.
That tissue growth(I dont know if it is a tumor or what) in Cats throat may explain the fact that the Cat was always very quiet during 2 years we know her, we could barely hear her meowing. Well, if she was like that for 2 years, there is a chance that it may be not too bad.
I will let you know ASAP when I hear anything else.I just got a call from Doctor Russell. The cat went into cardiac arrest and passed away during the surgery. They did their best he says but couldn't do anything. He told me it may be related to that tissue growth she had. His opinion is that it was probably the best thing for her he is sure that Cat has cancer spread everywhere. You can call him if you wish to find out more: 205-661-9630.
I will get her later on to burry on my backyard. I will refund everybodys money end of today. Please use it to help other stray animals. God bless you all and thank you for everything you did for her.Friday, 6/17
Ive got Catwallet back this morning. She looked exactly the same like on her last photo that I took while the Cat was asleep, just had some stitches on her left leg. I have finished her 3 foot deep grave and we have buried her under raspberry bushes. We do not go to that area of our backyard so the Cat will rest in peace, finally, after all the months of straggling with heat, cold, Alabama wilderness, illnesses, looking for food and love.
A long time ago Ive heard a story about Angels coming to us not to help, but to change us. They come in different, usually not the most unattractive shapes, and patiently wait for us to step forward and do something good something that we usually never do. If that story is true, then who knows, maybe this little ugly cat was sent to try to change me and my wife. She came to the front door of our house two weeks before our daughter was born, 17 month ago, and since then, under rain, sun and snow, was patiently waiting on us to step forward - to see her not like an ugly annoying stray cat, but as a helpless creature that also needs love and attention. For many long months, she has taught us to share food, provide a little bit of care, to notice unattractive and annoying poor things that we usually dont see or dont want to see around us while busy with our own, more important stuff. And when kitty has finally found that she is loved, that all her efforts to make me and my wife a little bit better are finally successful, that there are actually many, many people in this World that can love her the way she is, that sent their money to help her, that were thinking about her for all these days, she got satisfied and went somewhere else - on her new assignment.
It is Catwallet story I will remember and will teach my daughter when she gets older. Thank you all

It was 11 pm, so I placed the cat into a cardboard box to protect from possible dangers (stray dogs etc) and left it on my porch until this morning.
This morning she was alive, so I decided to take her to a local vet. When I said stray cat they wanted to put her asleep for free, but when I mentioned that Id like to try to save her life, they said that they have to do X-ray to find out what the damage is. The doctor said that a broken pelvic is usually a reason to put a cat to sleep so it doesnt have a bad life after all, but a broken leg is not a problem. Also, the doctor said, it may be something simple and nothing may be broken to begin with. The cost of X-ray and exam is around $200, and put the cat asleep is free since it is a stray cat (I told them that I found the cat on my front yard). A true FW person inside of me told me to take the 2nd way, but because Im stupid I guess I decided to pay for the exam. Yes or No to decide that a live creature has to live or die may be hard to say when it comes to that. I dont really have extra $200 to spend on a stray cat, but WTF I didnt want to kill her without giving her a chance.
They called me an hour ago and said that the cat doesnt have any broken bones but one of her leg joints is badly dislocated and cat needs (may need?) a surgery to reattach one of her muscles. The cost of the surgery is around $500. To put her asleep is $40 now since I signed the paperwork and claimed the ownership. When I asked if the cat can recover on her own if I put her into a large dog cage I have for 3-4 weeks on my back porch, they told me it is possible, but I will have to give her pain killers they can give me for $40. And after that, she still may not recover completely.
What is your advice, people? What is a way for a true Fatwaller to have his/her animal fixed for the smallest money possible? No way I can afford to spend extra $500 for a cat surgery when my relatives abroad barely have money to buy food. From my past life in a country with no vets around I know that cats are very capable to recover on their own, but still I dont want to have a disabled cat after all I have to take care for the rest of her life.
I will add a picture of the stupid cat my wife took a long time ago. The cat looks ugly as hell and was always missing one lip, but still - she is a cat
Disabled with great credit score cannot pay anymore
Added on : Tuesday June 07th 2011 06:00:05 PM
I am a disabled veteran currently receiving $245 from the VA but is increasable with appeasls. Hoping that increases during my appeal in the future but at this time $245 is my income. I also am waiting on my Social Security claim to go through as well. However right now i am having difficulties paying my AT&T universal business card by Citi.My score is about 750 when i checked a mth ago. I have a $5000 debt with the card, i had 0% and i could make the payments, however the 0% is now gone, i thought it was for 12mths but they said it was only 6. I missed my last payment, which they charged me a late fee and apparently that caused an over limit fee as well. So now i am in a hole.I have looked on the forums and know SIS talks about settling for 20% of the balance by not paying anything to them for several mths. But also learned it causes credit score issues.I do believe when i got this card i used an EIN since its a business card. I would rather not ruin my credit, but not while im waiting for my VA increase and SS to go through i will be in a bind during that time with payments esp with the 0% gone and the 2 late fees, even though i payed maybe 72hrs late.When my increases go through i will save up for a bit and hope to start a business starting 2012. I will need a loan to assist with that so my score is important to me.

HELOC Withdrawal Question
Added on : Monday April 25th 2011 12:41:05 PM
I have a brand new HELOC as of last month. I've read about banks freezing HELOCs if there's a change in your property value, if you lose your job, if your credit score drops, etc., and that knowledge has been bouncing around in my head ever since I signed on the dotted line.I specifically got this HELOC to, initially, finance a kitchen renovation, and we are well into it at this point. The plan is to pay it down and reuse the funds throughout the draw period for other home improvement projects. I have been drawing from the HELOC as needed.I keep a pretty close eye on my FICO scores along with all of my financial info, including credit reports. This past weekend, I saw that a negative event from a few years ago that had never shown up on any of my credit reports is now all of a sudden popping up. Details on the negative event at the bottom of this post for the curious.My concern over the weekend became that the subsequent drop in my FICO scores would cause the bank to freeze my HELOC, essentially leaving me financially stranded with a kitchen that's down to the studs. So I went to my HELOC bank and got a cashier's check for my remaining HELOC balance with no problem whatsoever and deposited it into my savings account at my 'regular' bank.I was told at my 'regular' bank that the funds wouldn't be available immediately because they put a hold on Cashier's Checks.MY QUESTION (finally, eh?): What are the odds that my HELOC bank will all of a sudden decide to freeze my HELOC and not honor the Cashier's Check they gave me? Or, since I have not received any indication at all that they plan to freeze my HELOC, and I had no problem getting the Cashier's Check from them, can I be fairly sure that there won't be a problem?Yes, I overthink everything and worry too much. But I have seen stranger things than this happen to friends of mine.[I won't bore you with all the details, but I'm a disabled vet who receives treatment at VA hospitals, but if I have a medical emergency and am not near a VA hospital, the VA covers the charges. There was a mixup on a $350 fee in an emergency situation, I was told the VA had paid it, it had slipped through the cracks, and as soon as I knew it went to collections I paid it myself. Unfortunately, this was well after a default judgement was entered against me. This is the only negative thing on my credit reports, other than a short Average Age of Accounts of 7 years.]

Comments on Paul Ryan's budget proposal??
Added on : Tuesday April 05th 2011 12:40:07 PM
link to articlei believe this is the first proposal that is willing to cut entitlements. can anyone weed through the political BS and give us the bottom line. from my skimming of the article, looks to affect mostly seniors and elderly folk
WASHINGTON Republicans controlling the House have fashioned plans to slash the budget deficit by about $5 trillion over the upcoming decade, blending unprecedented spending cuts with a fundamental restructuring of taxpayer-financed health care for the elderly and the poor. The decade-long plan brought forth by House Budget Committee Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., far exceeds the $1 trillion-plus in budget cuts outlined in President Barack Obama's February budget and is on par with recommendations from Obama's own bipartisan deficit commission in December. GOP budget: courage or political suicide?
Under the decidedly arcane congressional budget process, the GOP plan is not actual legislation but provides a nonbinding, theoretical framework for future action in Congress. And with Democrats controlling the Senate, the GOP plan serves more to frame the debate heading into next year's election than represent a program with a chance of passing Congress and actually becoming law. Other political news of note Ryan plan a good deal? Depends on age
Updated 26 minutes ago 4/5/2011 3:46:25 PM +00:00 House Budget Committee chairman Ryans remake of Medicare would save as much as $285 billion a year by 2030, but would mean less federal spending on medical care for in future decades for todays workers and their children.
Updated 19 minutes ago 4/5/2011 3:53:15 PM +00:00 GOP's House budget chair unveils major cuts Updated 0 minutes ago 4/5/2011 4:12:47 PM +00:00 Boehner: No budget agreement after White House meeting Obama opens bid for new term, no longer outsider Analysis: Obama to run moneyed campaign Despite cuts already deemed draconian by Democrats, Ryan's plan can't claim a balanced budget by the end of the decade getting the deficit to the $400 billion range after six years because of promises to not increase taxes or change federal retirement benefits for people 55 and over. But he says the measure would stabilize the nation's finances and prevent a European-style debt crisis that could force far harsher steps. Read the Republican 2012 budget resolution (.pdf)
"We're actually saving Medicare and Medicaid, making them solvent for future generations," Ryan said. "And, yes, we're cutting spending. We're cutting a lot of spending, because government is spending way beyond its means." Tuesday's unveiling of the 2012 budget blueprint comes amid a separate, escalating battle between Republicans and the Obama administration over smaller but more immediate spending cuts for the current budget year. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, had a meeting scheduled at the White House Tuesday for a session with Obama aimed at staving off a government shutdown this weekend. Story: Ryan plan a good deal? Depends partly on your age
Compared with Obama's budget, the Ryan plan actually would cut $6.2 trillion over 10 years. But measured against Congressional Budget Office estimates that assume permanent extension of the Bush-era tax cuts, Ryan's budget would cut $5.8 trillion. However, $1 trillion of savings comes from the unrealistic assumption also made by Obama that overseas military operations would soon cost just $50 billion a year less than half those requested by Obama for 2012. Ryan's plan, released Tuesday morning, features a controversial proposal to convert the traditional Medicare health plan for the aged into a system in which the government would provide payments for private health insurance plans a fundamental shift from the traditional Medicare program that directly pays doctors and hospitals. Story: Boehner: No budget agreement after White House meeting
Current Medicare beneficiaries or workers age 55 and older would stay in the existing system. But for people now under the age of 55, the Medicare program would operate like a voucher system that provides subsidies that are unlikely to keep pace with medical inflation, critics say. At the same time, Republicans propose to sharply cut projected spending on the Medicaid state-federal health program for the poor and disabled and transforms it into a block grant program that gives governors far less money than under current estimates but considerably more flexibility. The savings from Medicaid would top $700 billion over the coming decade and that's before another $1.4 trillion would be reaped over the same period by repealing Obama's health care law. In the first decade, the plan barely touches overall Medicare spending. Legions of critics of the curbs to both Medicare and Medicaid say the moves would inevitably lead to poorer quality coverage. Future Medicare beneficiaries are likely to pay more out of their own pockets while states seeking to preserve Medicaid would have to provide more state taxpayer money to replace federal cuts. Video: Ryan: I hope to have 'adult' budget conversation (on this page)
Ryan counters that the spiraling growth of both Medicare and Medicaid are simply unsustainable, a view shared by Democratic deficit hawks like Alice Rivlin a former White House budget director during the Clinton administration who helped design Ryan's Medicare plan as a member of Obama's deficit panel. Under this view, simply curbing payments to doctors and other health care providers would cause the system to collapse. Ryan's proposal largely sidesteps Social Security, offering a vague requirement that the president and Congress develop a plan to save the program "in the event that the Social Security program is not sustainable." The trustees who oversee Social Security have been projecting for years that the program will run out of money by about 2037. Last year, Social Security paid out $37 billion more in benefits than it collected in payroll taxes, the first such deficit since Social Security was last overhauled in the 1980s. The program is instead tapping into $2.5 trillion in accumulated savings from previous program surpluses. On taxes, Ryan would rescind all tax increases in both the new health care law and in Obama's proposed 2012 budget. He would extend Bush-era tax cuts for taxpayers at every income level, including the wealthy. He would reject Obama's call to increase taxes on oil and natural gas companies, which were included in the president's proposed 2012 budget. He also embraces fundamental tax reform to set a top tax rate of 25 percent for both individuals and corporations, down from the current top rate of 35 percent for both. That would mirror a proposal by Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, to create lower rates by weeding from the tax code numerous tax breaks and loopholes enjoyed by both individuals and corporations. Read the Republican 2012 budget resolution (.pdf)
The measure also makes unprecedented cuts to the operating budgets of domestic agencies, slashing Obama's requests for programs like education, law enforcement and homeland security, along with highway building. Ryan endorses Obama's Pentagon requests, which provide for small increases over current levels. Ryan's plan, if enacted into law, would produce a $995 billion deficit next year that wouldn't drop below $400 billion until 2018. The deficit is currently projected at $1.6 trillion for the current fiscal year, and the administration estimates that under Obama's budget, it would drop to $1.1 trillion next year and $774 billion in 2021. Republicans intend to move quickly to advance their new blueprint. They hope to have the Budget Committee approve it Wednesday and push it through the House next week. The plan is expected to serve as a rallying point for Republicans who took power in January, but it is also likely to give Democrats a ready target to attack.
Help me decide on a reasonable price for selling my home
Added on : Saturday April 02nd 2011 01:40:24 PM
I've been interviewing for a job about 60 miles away, and am expecting an offer letter next week. As long as its a reasonable offer, and gives me enough extra income to warrant moving away from my current job, I plan on taking it.Its about an hour drive from my house, which is doable, however with the rising gas prices and the fact that I don't want a 2 hour a day commute, I plan on moving ASAP.I currently own my home, and purchased it in 2008 at $75,000. Its a 3 bed, 1 bath 1400 sqft home with 1/3rd acre of land with a 2 car attached garage and fenced in back yard.I currently owe right at $70,000.In 2008 I got the $7500 new home owners loan(credit).I have roughly $10,000 or more in receipts for things I've improved in the house.
Eg -
-Insulated the crawl space and reduced the heating bill by $100 a month
-Added a $6000 heating and cooling system. When I moved in the house just had baseboard heat and window AC units. Also added a wood burning furnace in the garage that is plumbed into the forced air ducts and draws air from the utility room. You can disable the electric furnace and heat the house on wood for free.
-Updated the kitchen with new counter tops and new appliances. Installed new Kenmore above range microwave, new GE dishwasher and used but in good shape GE stove.
-Updated the landscape. Added landscape beds in front of the house along with about $400 in plant material (weeping cherry, box woods, knockout roses, some evergreens, and more)And this year I spent $1000 on new flooring, I bought 800 sqft of cherry laminate from Lumber Liquidators to revamp the downstairs. I'd had carpet installed when we first moved in, and it was starting to look worn. I decided with wanting to sell soon, wood would fix the worn out carpet and look nice.I have an interested buyer. A guy lives about a mile away right next to the highway. He wants to move away from the highway because he can sell his land for a good profit due to its location, and he hates the noise. He wants to know a price.I also have a 1993 F150 that he's interested in, and I told him we could work out a deal if he bought the house. I paid $1200 for the truck and just use it to haul firewood and go to the hardware store with.I have a neighbor that's a Realtor, and I asked him what he'd suggest I list for. He suggested I start at 90k and walk away happy if I get 80k.I talked to an accountant about how repaying the 2008 home owners credit would work.
The wording on the IRS documentation is I have to pay it back unless I don't make any profit, and to consult a tax accountant for more details.
His explanation was I have to pay back $7500 of any profit. With my receipts from the improvements, I can show a loss.For example -
Bought house for $75
Sell house for $80
Make $5 in profit - $10 in improvements = -$5 in profit
Making it so I wouldn't have to repay the tax credit. Right now I'm about 1/3rd of the way done with installing the laminate. After that it will need trim put up around the floors and doors. The interested buyer is an older retired man, who told me he likes to work on projects around the house. He also seemed unhappy about the quality of the trim I was installing after I'm done with the floors, I was just going to use cheap fiberboard contractor-grade trim. He wants to use real wood, which is way out of my price range for a house I just want to get rid of.I'm considering telling him I'd take $78,000 for the house, but the floors and trim come uncompleted. He'd need to finish installing the flooring then put up the trim.
And I'd toss in the truck as a "gift", since I won't need it anymore. We plan on moving to a rental house, and I want to cut down on the number of vehicles I own, and I won't be working on anymore home improvements.Is this a reasonable deal, or am I screwing myself? I want to move the house fast, but I don't want to screw myself out of possible profit as well.
Specific questions on LTD insurance premium riders
Added on : Tuesday March 22nd 2011 12:40:17 PM
Got a quote for LTD insurance. The agent recommended two premium riders as 'no brainers.' 1) 3% COLA rider for adjustment after the benefit period starts. (15% increase to premium)
2) Regular Occupation rider which continues to provide full benefit if greater than 20% disabled from class of work. (20% increase to premium)Specifically regarding #2 he said that it is a no-brainer because only a fairly limited class of work qualify for the rider. Is he correct in recommending these premium riders?

Former pro-se debtor wins $311k FDCPA suit over $3k+ debt
Added on : Monday March 07th 2011 11:40:03 AM
A debt-collection law firm must pay a disabled former janitor $311,000 in damages because it pursued his $3,000 credit card debt long after the statute of limitations had expired, the 9th Circuit affirmed Friday.
The amount that the defendant law firm must pay Timothy McCullough includes a $1,000 statutory penalty under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, $250,000 for emotional distress and $60,000 in punitive damages, according to a Billings Gazette article today about the appellate court ruling and an earlier Gazette article about the federal jury verdict in the case.
(Granted, it is the 9th Circuit, so I wouldn't be surprised if there is an attempt to appeal).
If you listen closely, you can hear the floodgates opening in the distance...

Foreign Student Loan
Added on : Monday February 21st 2011 03:40:13 PM
Scenario:
I am having foreign country student loan with APR = 13.5% (I know a bit high).
My Dad took it in foreign country because he live there, for my school here in US.
My Dad is now partly disable and have increased medicare expenses and unable to pay towards loan.
Luckily I just landed on the new job with decent 59K salary.
Loan amount left so far is around 12K only.
I am having decent credit score (750+).Que:
Should I just save some money on a monthly basis(Limited monthly savings of $800 * 15 months = debt free life)and pay off loan in 15 months?
Should I get a credit card with 0 % APR (for 12 or 6 months)and try to get cash advance to pay off the loan?
Should I apply for personal loan (might be high APR)?
How taking any of the above loan help me benefit Tax implications?Any help is appreciated in this regard.
Previously only federal student loans were eligible to be discharged upon death or disability of the student borrower.
http://www2.ed.gov/offices/OSFAP/DCS/loan.cancellation.discharge...This allowed your federal student loan to function as a life and disability insurance policy with a benefit payout equal to the discharged student loan balance. Consider: Case 1: Do not pay off student loan
$100k student loan liability
$100k money in the bank assetCase 2: Pay off student loan
$0 student loan liability
$0 money in the bank asset
Upon disability the student (or upon death, his heirs) will still have the $100k in the bank in Case 1, but not in Case 2. In Case 2, paying off the loan simply used money to pay a debt was discharged anyway. Thus an outstanding federal student loan functions as a life and disability insurance benefit with a premium cost = the interest rate on the student loan minus the yield on the money invested instead of being used to pay off the student loan. Note that the premium cost could be negative (!) for those who refinanced their student loans on very favorable terms and can invest the cash in something with a higher yield.This concept is now being applied (apparently voluntarily) by some private student loan lenders also: "Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) is changing the terms of its private student loan agreements, forgiving loans beginning Friday if a student beneficiary dies or is permanently disabled.

Can't believe the thread is not on here. I stumbled on it at SD and its been there for days. I snagged 2 of these today so there are still some out there so I figured I'd post it here as well.These are the bigger 3.5" external drives which have an external power brick. These are NOT the small laptop external drives.SKU - 819-934Inventory Checker: http://www.staples.com/office/supplies/StaplesStoreInventory?URL...The drive also comes with the so called WD SmartWare Virtual CD (VCD) software. You can disable it but cannot remove it completely. The URL for information on that is: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3835Since the thread has been on SD for a while, I wish everyone luck as this is an extremely YMMV deal to start out with. Please don't complain if you cannot locate it. There are always other deals to come by. Life's too short to complain about a deal here and there. Thanks to scott586 at SD for posting. I give credit to him even though those guys at SD stole my Honda Nav thread from here and didn't even bother to mention that they found it at FW let alone give credit where due. Good luck guys and gals. ** Edit **
Found a post where the process to permanently remove the Smartware is listed. But you gotta remove the drive from the enclosure.

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/startup-defender-2-8/Startup Defender Startup Manager and Startup Firewall. Startup Defender is a small Windows startup manager program that sits in your Windows tray and constantly monitors in real time the startup locations on your PC to help prevent programs from auto starting up behind your back. If a program tries to write itself into any startup location Startup Defender will pop up a windows and ask if the program is allowed to place itself to start automatically with Windows.
Also you can disable/enable any programs that are currently installed to startup automatically. If there is an entry you are not sure what it is then you can Google it to see if it is needed or even harmful and choose if you want it to load it at startup or not. For the annoying programs that try to repeatedly place themselves in the autorun for Windows you can click the auto block so that Startup Defender stops them without you having to bother with them anymore. Also you can now view all processes and services then selectively start/stop each one.

Panasonic is clearing their "old" micro 4/3rd DSLR model DMC-GH1 for the new DMC-GH2.Right now they have a combo "special": DMC-GH1K body + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm lens for $499 on Panasonic.com. If you are an EPP member, you get additional $125 off, for the total of $375 + tax & free ground shipping.DMC-GH1 is a fabulous DSLR. Only about 6mo ago it was selling (and it still does at some stores) for $999+ (albeit with a 140mm lens, which is when I bought one). It has one of the best video recording capabilities of all DSLRs. DMC-GH1 could be hacked (with a modified firmware) to increase video recording bitrate to ~40Mbs, giving one ability to take amazing 1080p footage with continuous focus. Sadly, most of GH1s shipped after June 2010 have this hack disabled, as per this.So if you care about a good DSLR with amazing video, this is the one for you. (Note: new GH2 has a larger sensor, 16MP, and a couple of new tidbits. In my opinion, GH1 is just as good if not better with its 12MP. But you can also order GH2 body at Panasonic for $675, with EPP discount. That camera is on backorder.)Update: for some folks the combo is showing at $350+tax on EPP. My EPP price is still $375+tax. YMMV.

EA Sports Active 2 (Xbox 360) for $39.99 + free shipping (Newegg)
Added on : Saturday January 22nd 2011 01:40:32 PM
LinkPretty sure this is a new low (the lowest I've seen before this was $48.99 on Amazon). This game comes with a heart rate monitor and resistance band. Kinect required.
This game started at $100 and had a lot of mixed reviews associated with Kinect's ability to detect you. Since then, a bunch of those have been fixed (link to update). I have this game and it's still a bit glitchy at times but it's really not much of an issue. Two major suggestions though:
1) Voice command should be disabled (for now). There's a major glitch that's causing the game to freeze for a lot of people with this feature active. It doesn't really work very well anyway. EA have said they're aware of the problem and are trying to fix it. Last I heard, they'll try to release a patch sometime in Feb.
2) For all the floor exercises, don't sit until it tells you on screen to sit. Otherwise the Kinect often loses you. Also, you need to be a fair amount of distance away from the Kinect for it to detect you. I bought it on Amazon for $48.99. Both my wife and I are very happy. Great workouts - keeps both of our hear rates up (very challenging even on "easy") and motivated.

LINKFaithful to the conventions of the World War II genre, Mostow's (BREAKDOWN) submarine thriller pays earnest homage to the pluck and determination of ordinary people forced to overcome extraordinary odds. The mostly young and inexperienced crew of the S-33 is deployed on a top secret, high-priority mission to intercept a disabled German u-boat (the titular U-571) and capture the ship's encryption system--the Enigma--in order to crack the Nazi's communication codes and hasten an allied victory in the North Atlantic. Racing against a German rescue effort, the S-33 stages a daring raid on the U-571. But after capturing the U-571, the Americans find themselves its prisoner as they must pilot the leaky, disabled vessel through hostile enemy waters. McConaughey (EDTV, DAZED AND CONFUSED) leads a strong cast (Keitel - HOLY SMOKE, Paxton - A SIMPLE PLAN) in this fast-paced, tense, submarine adventure.

AT&T Unlimited, contract free iphone plan $25/MO
Added on : Saturday January 01st 2011 02:40:24 PM
First time poster here but I have been a lurker for a long time. I have been deployed for the past year and using a few different solutions to be able to send and receive SMS messages and calls. Recently I was able to use the talkatone app described here:http://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/hot-deals/1058856/?start=0[/L]to get the calling working reliably (previous solutions were hit or miss and voice quality was sub-par). Also, the new GV app does push notifications so SMS messages are perfect now. This all works well over 3G so i set out to find a way to get a data only plan with 3G for my iphone. Soon I found a way using an AT&T sim card and signing up for an iPad data plan. Please let me know how it works.Purpose:
This guide will give you everything you need to activate an iPhone with an AT&T data-only plan and show you how to get unlimited incoming and outgoing SMS messages and calls using Google Voice. This guide will effectively turn your iphone into a complete VOIP phone and gives you unlimited (well, 2GB) of data. This can also be done using an Android device in place of the iPhone using sipdroid and the official GV app. An iPod touch can be used but will be restricted to wifi areas.PLEASE NOTE: The AT&T iPad plan is ONLY meant to be used on the iPad. Use on other devices MAY violate the AT&T TOS and is done AT YOUR OWN RISK!Advantages:
-Price
-Freedom
-Eliminates coverage issues (as long as you have wifi in said areas)
-Free international roaming (if you purchase a local sim card with data)Disadvantages:
-Voice quality (really only noticeable over EDGE)
-No equipment discounts
-You will lose your current cell phone number (but NEVER have to switch it again)What you will need:
-An iPhone
-A new, unactivated microsim card (can be bought from AT&T for $15)
-The IMEI for any iPad 3G (visit your local Apple Store or scour the web if you don't have one)STEP ONE: Get Your Data Plan*This information is copied almost verbatim from this post on Modmyi.com
1.Using the Apple Safari browser (www.apple.com/safari) go to your preferences and enable the develop menu under the advanced tab
2.in the develop menu, go to user agent and select ...ipad. Click the develop menu again and select disable styles
3.Type the following web address into Safari: https://dcp2.att.com/OEPClient/openPage?IMEI=X&ICCID=Y being sure to replace the Y with the number printed on your new sim card and the X with the iPad 3G IMEI.
4.Follow the instructions to activate your new SIM card
*the APN editing guide is taken from here
5. On your iphone (connected through wifi) go to http://unlockit.co.nz
6. Tap custom APN and enter Broadband (no quotes) in the APN field then tap create profile
7. Tap install followed by install now.
8. Insert the sim into your iphone.STEP TWO: Create your Google Voice Account1. If you already have a Gmail account, login and skip to step 2. Create your Gmail account by going to http://www.gmail.com/ and following the following instructions.

Medicaid for entrepreneurs and early retirees
Added on : Friday December 17th 2010 11:40:03 AM
As of January 1, 2010 Medicaid no longer has resource limitations for most healthy individuals:
http://wnylc.com/health/entry/95/ (elimination of resource test...)From the article:
Does this mean that a someone with $1,000,000 in the bank but who has low income can apply for Medicaid, if s/he is under age 65 and not blind or disabled?

NO, because interest and dividends earned on savings count as "income" for the people under age 65, who are NOT blind or disabled (S/CC and AFDC-related groups)But with long term treasury rates approaching 1% it's entirely possible that someone with substantial assets could be generating income below the threshold. Moreover, if one were to keep living expenses uninvested or invested in capital assets or certain other tax shelters then they would not not count towards income limitations. Self employment income is also disregarded to the extent it is reinvested into the business (ie business expenses are deductible).
http://wnylc.com/health/entry/113/ (medicaid income and resource disregards)
http://wnylc.com/health/afile/113/3/ (resource disregards table)
http://wnylc.com/health/afile/113/1/ (income disregards table)Since businesses often generate no income in their formative years, it seems that if one were to save up a cushion of living expenses then they could receive medicaid while trying to get a new venture off the ground. Moreover, it seems that if an individual simply had enough assets to live on (retired) or invested them carefully then they could also receive medicaid. Questions:1. Are unsecured loans (ie from credit card companies) exempt from income limitations? While I wouldn't normally think that any sort of loan could be regarded as income the table in the following link states that a "Bona Fide Loan" is exempt but "there must be a written agreement, signed by lender and the recipient, indicating intent to repay within a specified time. Agreement must state how recipient intends to repay (specify with what property or future income)", which seems to exclude unsecured loans. Does that mean no AORs without a HELOC?
http://wnylc.com/health/afile/113/1/2. Could rebates be regarded as income? Since increases in the value of capital assets (such as stocks) are not regarded as income the primary difficulty for those with assets is remaining liquid without running foul of the income limits. FWers have no difficulty generating rebates, but I'm not sure if they'd be counted as income in Medicaid bizarro world. For medicaid purposes, payments in-kind are disregarded as income regardless of their value, so presumably gift cards (wal mart, visa, gas, etc) wouldn't count, but could cash rebates above the purchase price of certain items (such as dollar coins) be counted against other spending (such as rent)? 3. Medicaid distinguishes between income received on a regular basis and infrequently received irregular income. It's my understanding that if one exceeds income limits for a month than one is only disqualified for that month. What would be the consequence of taking capital gains once a year or once every other year? 4. According to the following "administrative directive", medicaid applicants cannot be denied coverage for failing to disclose resource information. It would seem this would make it extremely difficult for application reviewers to use any of the above gray areas as a basis for denial. What would be the consequences if an individual were accepted to medicaid, but later discovered that they were mistakenly ineligible due to some esoteric gray issue, such as undocumented rebates being considered "income"? It is, after all, a medicaid recipient's responsibility to notify medicaid if they become ineligible.
http://www.health.state.ny.us/health_care/medicaid/publications/...
Also, before you discount medicaid income limits as being too low to accommodate even minimal interest and dividends, note that many states have medicaid "extension" programs which follow medicaid rules in lock step except for more generous income guidelines. For example, in NY we have Family Health Plus. For a frugal FWer like myself, it's all the income I'd need if I could eliminate the cost of healthcare from my budget.

Added on : Wednesday December 01st 2010 04:40:19 AM
Miner Wars 2081 PRE-ALPHA
Sale price: $13.99
Regular: $48.99BUYING THIS GAME GIVES YOU ACCESS TO THE PRE-ALPHA VERSION OF MINER WARS 2081
Miner Wars 2081 is available now in a pre-alpha state for a 70% discount versus the full retail price. The current version of the game is still early in development and does not represent the final product. Expect bugs. Miner Wars MMO will be a separate product and is not part of the current pre-order discount!Miner Wars is an underground and space shooter played in a fully destructible environment and is a combination of single player story game and MMO. As a player, you operate an advanced mining ship in an open world asteroid belt area. You dig kilometers of tunnels, harvest the ore, travel the solar system, fight your enemies and discover deep secrets.Game play is led by an epic story and is a combination of a single/multi-player game, cooperative, or you against everyone.The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing or just flying around and destroying everything you see.Features * Global Scale Destruction - The whole environment in the game is destructible and persistent. You can travel to a forgotten asteroid, mine a tunnel and make it your secret base of operations. You could take an asteroid buster rocket and destroy any large asteroid. You could dig a long tunnel in a huge 8km asteroid and wait until an unsuspecting victim flies into the tunnel and mount an ambush. The possibilities are limitless.
* 6DOF Combat / FPS in Space - Every ship in the game is fully maneuverable in six directions. This makes the combat extremely dynamic and exciting. FPS veterans will feel at home with our WASD- mouse-and-key setup and Space simulation fans can use their beloved joysticks to maneuver the ship in space. Miner wars is a full PvP/looting friendly environment.
* Skill-Based Game Flying and combat will take mainly physical and mental skill. No grinding your way to the top doing repetitive missions as there are no levels, only player skill. You can, however, upgrade your ship to have that edge in the field.
* Wide Variety of Ships - A player can acquire the ship that will most suit his needs. There are no restrictions as to which type he chooses but some will be more suited for mining, large battles, exploration / scouting and some for hit and run tactics.
* Complex Dungeons in Space Seamless transition between outdoor and indoor areas. Player will be able to enter big asteroid bases and stations full of enemies and loot. Players will also be able to battle each other in these indoor areas and engage in some real intense multi-player battles.
* Ship Upgrades - Every ship can be upgraded on a space-station with a large variety of weapons, armor plating, engines, radar systems, maneuvering thrusters, mining equipment and many other kinds of upgrades.
* Mining and Exploration - Any player in the game can choose to lead the life of a miner or explorer. There are almost 50 material types that can be mined from an asteroid and some of them are so rare that they will make you a very rich person should you find them. An explorer can travel around sectors and get a good chunk of money for tips on where to mine.
* Epic-Sized battles- Our VRAGE engine allows for some really massive battles in space. Up to 300 player ships can be displayed in one sector and engage in a rough battle for resources.
* Looting In a world where it's Player vs. Player, our players will have to keep their purses heavy and their combat skills sharpened. Any ship in the game can be looted by another player should it be destroyed. You can either destroy your opponent, (either NPC or Player) and get much lesser loot or you can disable your opponent and steal some of his equipment and resources. In the heat of the battle some of the equipment or resources will get destroyed.
* Factions - There will be around 30 factions in the game. All of the factions will have a different approach on reaching their goals (explorers, army, miners, fanatics, etc.) and some of them will be aiming only at strict piracy. Or you may choose to go it alone and form a freelance crew
* Combination of Single and Multi-Player Elements - Is the mission you're on too tough for you? With just a quick chat you can hire a friend to help you on your quest for the truth!System requirements * CPU: 2.0 GHz
* RAM: 1GB (1.5GB on Windows Vista)
* Graphics Card: NVidia GeForce 6 series or better, ATI Radeon R520 (X1300-X1950) or better, Intel GMA X3000 or better. Requires at least Pixel-Shader 3.0.

What's in the Box Intel designed thermal solution (Fan, Heatsink, Clip Assembly)Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300If four is your lucky number, you can't go wrong with this multi-core processor from Intel. The Core 2 Quad Q8300 is four powerful cores and four threads with 4MB of L2 cache. It's got speed, amazing performance, and responsiveness built on 45nm architecture designed for 64-bit computing. Now, say that four times really fast. Ok, we're kidding, but not about the quality technology behind this outstanding desktop processor.Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.Intel Extended Memory 64
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you're ready. Intel's 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.Thermal Monitoring TechnologiesThis feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor's power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary - even under worst case power use.Execute Disable Bit
Reduces your system's exposure to viruses and mal-ware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue

I posted this on the "other" deal site, figuted I should post it here as well.Change new data plans to Unlimited data for $30 a monthQuoted from another board and used with success:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CREDIT GOES TO GADGET88
Guide written by Nrwrit3r (not me)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Items needed:"Dumb" phone, with the IMEI number (found in the battery casing) - This can be bought as a "go" phone from any RadioShack, at&t store, WalMart, ect for cheap.iPhone sim information (found in general--> settings --> ICCID, write this down as you will be using the iPhone to call at&t)Access to your account for at&t ----
- Call 611 on your phone- Click 1, 0, 0 (this is the series of #s you'll type in even if you listen to the automated voice)- When you get to an at&t rep, tell them you want to switch from your iPhone 4 to a non smart phone. Also tell them you have an adaptor to make the micro sim work in your non smart phone (they will tell you it may not work, just tell them you want to do it anyway).- Give the IMEI number of the non smart phone- Give the SIM number of the iPhone (have this written down beforehand since you're on your phone)- Everything should be set. They should confirm it's been switched. - Ask for the $30 unlimited texting, email, and data phone ***for non smart phones*** If you have a plan with unlimited messaging, you will need to disable this (you can add 200 msgs temporary for $5 per line), and follow the rest of the guide. If you have it enabled you can't select this $30 non smart phone plan. You can re-enable it after you have unlimited 3g data in 2-3 hours.- After it is set, hang up.- You don't even need to turn on the non smart phone. Make a call from your iPhone. This will make the system realize you're still using it.- You will get 2 texts from At&t (within 2-3ish hours):Message 1:"At&t free msg: did you know an eligible dat plan is required for your iPhone? Call 611 or visit att.com/iPhoneplans for details."Message 2:
"At&t free msg: Your iPhone requires an eligible data plan. We have added an appropriate plan and messaging pkg. Call 611 or go to att.com/iPhone plans for info"You'll also get an email saying the same thing.If you log into your account on At&t's site you'll see that you currently have the $30 plan for non smart phones for unlimited data/messaging/email selected. Wait a few hours, and it will automatically change to $30 unlimited 3g data since you have an iPhone.^ You will get a text message (this is a 3rd message) in 2-3 hours notifying you that you have the unlimited 3g data plan.Welcome to the unlimited club If you disabled unlimited messaging, re-enable after the change has been completed.**If you have not received info of the change after 4 hours, see below**I had an issue, where although others were getting the texts and having their 3g unlimited plans activated, I was not. I got the texts saying a plan was chosen for me, but I logged in online and was still on the $30 dummy plan. I called at&t. I told them I had switched to my dumb phone, and then was switching back to my iPhone (please note I had already done all of the steps listed above, so this was my 2nd call to at&t). I told him I wanted my unlimited plan transfered back to my iPhone 4. He did it! He had to enable 200mb plan for the iPhone and then change it to unlimited, but he did it. So, if you haven't received that confirmation text, try calling at&t and telling them you're switching back to your iPhone (this is after you've called and switched to the dummy phone).^ Try mentioning that you'd done something like this before, and the last rep had to enable the 200mb plan THEN switch you to unlimited.Haha he said a survey would be coming and asked if he got a 10/10, I said yes. I have a feeling he knew exactly what I was doing.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To reiterate,You WANT AT&T to catch on to the fact that you have quit using the non-smartphone IMEI and are back to using the iPhone. AT&T's automated system is seeing that you have had an unlimited data plan for the non-smartphone IMEI and so they grandfather you into the old unlimited iPhone data plan.

I've been asked by a lot of parents lately what parental control software I recommend. Without a doubt - Norton Online Family. The parental controls are amazing, and the software is very intuitive. No software will lock out the bad stuff 100%, but Norton has done a good job making it easy for parents to watch their kids' online habits.I have nephews that have no boundaries. When I gave them their computer, I put this software on it, and any time they do something questionable, I call and let them know I'm watching. Over time, the questionable behavior has stopped. I did this after I caught one 8-year-old nephew searching for "girls gone wild." Additionally, I can temporarily disable their accounts whenever they do something wrong.Rumors suggest that Norton will likely integrate this software with their Norton product line soon, so now's the time to sign up (while it's free). No amount of software can compare to a parent who is actively monitoring their child online, but this software helps whenever you can't be there.

Sorry about the late notice, but I just found this while puttering around on the net:September Onlyhttp://store.majorgeeks.com/p13357-auslogics_boostspeed_5_seAuslogics BoostSpeed 5 Special Edition will enhance your PCs performance with a host of useful optimisation tools.The Disk Cleaner, for instance, will search your hard drive for junk files that can safely be deleted. The Registry Cleaner wipes away redundant Registry entries, then Auslogics Disk Defrag reorganises your files to improve Windows and application speeds.The bundled Startup Manager displays everything that's launched when Windows starts, as well as Internet Explorer addons and Explorer extensions. Potentially dangerous programs, like spyware, are highlighted, so they're easy to remove. And anything else you decide you don't need can be disabled at a click, improving boot time and freeing up valuable system resources.BoostSpeed 5's System Advisor then scans your system for configuration issues, and recommends possible changes: Windows services that can be safely disabled, security tweaks you should make, and so on.And if you're in a hurry and don't have time to explore all these tools, then you can always leave BoostSpeed 5's System Scan to do the hard work for you. In a couple of click it will start scanning your PC for Registry issues, junk files, unwanted internet and application histories, fragmented hard drives and more. The System Scan will then automatically repair any issues it finds, and can even shut down your PC when it's done, the perfect solution for unattended, hassle-free PC optimisation.While this is a good set of tools, the full Professional version provides many more. And these include modules to defragment your Registry, find and remove duplicate files, display in-depth information on running programs, optimise your Windows services, apply Windows tweaks, optimise your Internet connection and recover deleted files.

50" plasma HDTV (720p, Zenith Z50PJ240), $513
Added on : Sunday September 26th 2010 08:40:11 PM
http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_012W022789510001P50" Zenith plasma 720p HDTV (the same on as at Sears) on sale this week at K-Mart for $569.99, use coupon code 10PTV for 10% off (via Kmart.com, for pickup in-store) = $512.99 + tax.First, know up front that it's just 720p, so if you're a serious videophile this isn't for you. BUT, that said, the picture quality on this set is VERY good to my eye. It's apparently a re-badged LG 50PJ350, and I'm very pleased with it. I've been shopping for a 46-50" flat panel for a while, and think this is comparable to the Samsung PN50C450 and significantly better than the Panasonic P50C2/P50X24 (and I gave up altogether on LCDs--even the expensive ones had terrible off-center viewing).Now that it's home, I am super-impressed. Great set of inputs (including VGA, which the lower-end Panasonics don't have), and very good menu controls. Lots of options for adjusting the picture, including it being easy to disable overscan for those of us who use an HTPC. Also, no buzz from mine (at least to my 40 yr old ears), which was important to me. I was a little worried about the 720p vs 1080p issue, but at couch distance (approximately six feet), watching CBS football, I absolutely can not see any hint of jaggies or softness. Now that it's actually in my living room I feel a little silly for having been worried about this issue. (Again, I know there will be some comments disputing this--don't worry, I don't take offense, and of course you get what you pay for).One worry I had was reflectivity. It definitely is more reflective than the Panasonic X24, but as far as I can tell it's no worse than the Samsung 450 or the Panasonic C2. Most importantly, it's totally acceptable watching football right now in my living room with two shaded windows. The glare is better than on the 34" crt it's replacing, which is all that matters (again, to me, given the price).

Added on : Tuesday September 07th 2010 03:40:04 PM
OK so here is the newbie situation/question...Hope it isnt too bad, though I did try to search before asking this and couldnt.... I am interested in 2 properties. Specs on both: Property 1: Listed at 100,000. Appears move in ready. Was owned by an elderly woman who recently died. Is 1412 sq feet on .6 acres. 3 bed 1 bath. PROPERTY TAX INFO Homestead

Total $115,700 Annual Taxes $2,166.60
Taxes Paid $2,166.60
----------------------------------------------------
My dilemma is this: Should I go for the cheaper property but double the property taxes? Since a bank owns it, do I potentially have more leverage to negotiate a price? It has more square footage, extra bathroom but less land, needs small work done, and double the taxes. Or will the 1st property be reassessed with higher taxes anyways if I were to buy since Im not disabled? Both mortgages at sale price would be 596/month at 4.5% 30 years for HOUSE 1 and 566/month at 4.5% 30 years HOUSE 2. Which one appears the better deal? Much thanks
Looking to refinance my house..But need some help.
Added on : Tuesday August 10th 2010 08:40:03 PM
So, im looking to refinance my house at this time, since rates seem like they are really low. I owe 201,000 on it, and its worth around 198,000 according to zillow. I have no problem paying it down to what its 198,000 in order to refinance. My wife and I are both veterans, and she is 30% rated disabled by the VA. My current rate is at 6.0% and would like to have a lower payment. We both have excellent credit and would probably use the VA loan because she does not have to pay the funding fee. I have looked around a bit, and came across Amerisave.com. Has anybody tried them? Any problems with them? How close are the closing costs posted on their site? Any other good companies to refinance through? I dont want to pay too much in closing costs. Thanks in advance.

Employee Stock Option
Added on : Wednesday July 21st 2010 12:40:03 AM
I have a really confusing dilemna and hoping someone can offer some sort of answer to my question. Here goes............
I worked for 20 years as a warranty administrator for a Dodge dealership. I have been gone from there since 2006. During my time there the dealership was "owned" by a family who also had 4 other dealerships. The GM and Office manager of my dealership(let's call it X) were also part owners of X and X only. The primary owner gave all employees who had 5+ years of service employee stock. My stock started out as $25,000 more or less. We got a certificate each year. The employees did not monetarily participate, so it was not like a 401k plan, I always felt as if there was an underlying motive for it, such as a tax write off, etc. since the company had never given us anything except a free turkey at Thanksgiving. BUT, in order to collect on our stock we had to be disabled or gone from the company for 5 years. During my last year there, the primary owner of all 5 dealerships died. Also, during this time we got a letter saying they were discontinueing the stock plan and as of 01/25/2006 we would be 100% vested. I quit there in November of 2006 after being hurt on the job. I did get a workers comp settlement, but went on to another employer to work. After my health continued to deteriorate due to my injury I left employment completely and filed for my disability. Now, this is kind of where it gets tricky. I was deemed 100% disabled about 6 months ago after 3 years of fighting for it. I contacted my former employer and informed them that I was found to be completely disabled, I was told I would be contacted to come in and sign paperwork to collect my money from my stock. After I left the company the GM and OM became complete owners of X. All employees who were part of the original ESOP continued to get our certificates through the years, my value had shrunk to 3500.00 by this time. (I never, ever even remotely thought anything would come of this, because I knew what kind of people I worked for, but was in a catch 22 situation, was severely injured, so basically was stuck in a job that I had to have and never received a raise for over 10 years because I had been injured) Some employees were able to collect "their" money, others ran into a wall at every turn. The GM and OM changed the name of X right before the first of the year since they had become complete owners and had purchased X from the estate of the primary owner. Two months ago I got the following letter. "The purpose of this letter is to notify you of the termination of X's ESOP. The ESOP (or Employee Stock Ownership Plan) was terminated effective 12/01/2009. As a participant in the ESOP, you generally have certain rights regarding the distribution of your vested account balance. As you know, your account balance in the ESOP if any is comprised solely of stock in X purchased by employer contributions. The ESOP document provides that you may elect to receive the vested value of your ESOP account in cash (equal to fair market value of the stock in your account) or in the form of corporate stock certificates.
Due to recent economic conditions, however, the value of the stock in X held in your account has a current fair market value of zero. Therefore, there is no cash distribution available. Additionally, the corporate by laws of X and the ESOP document provide that only CURRENT employees may be shareholders in the corporation. Because you are no longer a current employee of the corporation as a result of the Company's cessation of business, no additional corporate stock may be issued to you. As a result, there will be no distributions in any form from the ESOP to participants.
The assets of X were sold and the corporation is in the process of being dissolved. The proceeds of the asset sale have been used to pay secured creditors, including state and federal tax obligatins. There are no funds remaining with which to pay other obligations. Please understand that no distribution will be made to any owners of X."Some of the people who have left employment are up in arms, they want their money, I have been contacted about going with a group of them to see an attorney. Like I said, I knew in the back of my mind that I would never receive anything, I never expected it, I knew I was being used as a "tax write off" from the get-go on this or that there was something fishy about the whole thing. My question is.....is it worth even fooling with. I am not out any money since I never contributed. It seems that the others who want their money only want to push this because of the crookedness of the company in general. Sort of a vengeance thing. My nerves and health are in no condition to fight with these people, meaning the current owners. I would love to have the money, yes I do need it, but I feel as if the only thing it will bring is more heartache. I complained of an injury and was put in a corner of the service dept with no heat or a/c. Worked from home after numerous surgeries and was not paid, my loyalty to the company was much more than their loyalty to me. As you can tell, yes I am bitter.Any advice????? Let it go?? Is it worth fighting for? Is it worth fighting for and hoping it is broken off in them the way it was so many of their employees? I am sure the owners were smart when they came up with this ESOP and the wording of it. If nothing else, I have some small sense of relief just by venting to this forum. Thanks for listening and hopefully I am not wrong in feeling as if I need to just let it go. Karma is a bitch and what comes around, goes around, am I right or wrong?

Crutchfield has this well-regarded 2009 model compact superzoom digital camera on clearance for $189.99 with free shipping.Panasonic Lumix DCM-ZS1 $190 @ CrutchfieldI've got a ZS3 (same camera but with HD video, HDMI output and a larger LCD screen) and it's an excellent camera. We especially appreciate the super-wide angle lens, which goes to 25mm at the the widest (35mm film camera equivalent), which we find useful about 5-10 times more often than the long super zoom, but with this camera, you've got a great lens at both ends of the spectrum. Most recent (i.e. 2006 or newer) point-and-shoot digital cameras have focused on cramming more megapixels in at the expense of low-light performance and added graininess in the photos, but this Panasonic is much better than most and takes good photos with less of the grainy, pixellated images I've seen from a number of Canon, Samsung and Kodak cameras I've tried in recent years. In particular, the close-up photos I've taken on the macro settings are outstanding, the best I've seen from any digital camera.Excellent review on DP Review.com:6/09 DPReview.com Compact Superzoom Group Test Rates ZS1/ZS3 #1Yes, it was $40 cheaper on clearance at Costco B&M stores a few months ago, but good luck on finding any more. This is the cheapest I could find for it from an authorized dealer.
Details:10.1-megapixel effective recording
12X optical zoom (4X digital/48X total zoom)

weight (without battery and media): 7.3 ounces
warranty: 1 year parts and labor (6 months parts & 90 days labor on CCD)
==============
The camera has four relatively minor downsides:1) No full manual controls (but plenty of scene settings)
2) Mode dial is on outside and occasionally shifts accidentally
3) Video is not HD like most 2010 model cameras - only 848x480, but should be better than typical VGA (640x480)
4) Must use Panasonic OEM batteries. But there is a work-around, by downgrading the firmware from vers.1.2 to 1.1 (only change with 1.2 was that it disabled use of non-Panasonic batteries). The benefit is that the Maximal Power third-party batteries are not just cheaper than Panasonic ones, but last around 1/3 longer, too. I'm having trouble with the direct links, but you can find them from Rushhound's excellent post on this previous ZS1 deal thread, if you scroll down a bit:Prior ZS1 thread with links to downgrading firmware to use non-Panasonic batteriesHere's a link to the Maximal Power batteries at Amazon:Maximal Power batteries for ZS1 $13.76 @ Amazon
Supplemental Disability Insurance PM that I received
Added on : Friday June 25th 2010 01:40:02 PM
I very much enjoy your posts.

What do you recommend for extending disability coverage? I'm offered some level of coverage through work, but long term that would be a hard income hit. My wife doesn't work and doesn't have the ability to cover my income level even if she went back to work.

I already have appropriate term life.(I sometimes make PMs public. I remove any personally identifying information. The reason that I do this is because I post here to be helpful and answering questions publicly allows everyone to learn, add something, give a different viewpoint, or correct a mistake. Also, for some reason some PMs sent to me disappeared so if someone sent me a PM and didn't get a response, that is why. Otherwise, I always respond.)Thanks for the compliment. Long answer:With term life insurance, coverage is primarily chosen based upon price. Life insurance is easy. One is either dead or alive. There are no gray areas. Disability income insurance is all about gray areas. If one policy costs $1,000 and one costs $300, the likely explanation is going to be that it is much harder to have a legitimate claim with the $300 policy than the $1000 policy. However, just because one doesn't have a legitimate claim with the $300 policy, it doesn't mean that they aren't disabled. Since coverage is being purchased because the income is needed, the policy must be purchased based upon the contractual language and not the price. That does not mean that price gets ignored. It just means that it is not the first consideration.There are two problems with your work policy. One is solveable. One isn't solveable. The solveable problem is that it isn't enough coverage. Most people struggle to get by on 100% of their income. Trying to get by on 60% is almost impossible once one considers the fact that this 60% is taxable, it won't increase with inflation, there are no retirement contributions, and health insurance is lost.The insurance companies have limits in terms of what they will insure. Typically, this will work out to be about 60% of one's income. Ex. You make $100,000. The insurance company will allow you to get $5000/month of coverage. However, if you get 60% through your employer, you already have $5,000/month of coverage. The insurer realizes that if this is going to be taxable, it's closer to $3750. Therefore, the insurance company will give a benefit of $1250. Additionally, they will insure the retirement contributions that you are making and those that are being made on your behalf.The non-solveable problem is that the contract won't be good. Obviously, I haven't seen the contract, but let's use common sense. An employer gives a benefit to retain and attract employees. They want these benefits to be as cheap as possible. How does one make an insurance policy as cheap as possible? Keep claims low. How is this done? Write the contract to make it more difficult to have a legitimate claim.Short Answer:
Your work policy should be supplemented. Your ability to do this and which company will be the best for you is primarily determined by your occupation and any health issues that you may have.

AIG does not like to pay its bills
Added on : Sunday May 30th 2010 04:40:03 PM
Brenda Lancaster is disabled and uses a disability policy to cover personal loan payments, but said they suddenly stopped.The policy started making her $315 monthly payments, but stopped last December.She found out the payments stopped after her account went to collections.[Im] very disappointed, she said. A company that promises you that if you become disabled that they're going to do what they said, and they didn't do that.Lancaster said submitted a claim form every six months including a doctor's statement about her disability, as the policy requires.They began stating they were not getting the claim forms, [but] fortunately I kept copies, she said.Lancaster then complained to AIG, which sold her the policy. She said she couldn't get answers and became upset because the company received government bailout money, but wouldn't make her loan payments.The government gave them loans on two occasions, but they can't pay off my loan, she said. They had my money.Action 9 contacted AIG about Lancasters complaint.The company sent a response letter that said it couldn't discuss specifics due to privacy laws.After Action 9s contact, AIG paid off Lancasters loan with a check to her bank for $9,892.Lancaster said she's happy the matter is resolved.I feel wonderful, she said. Its a big monkey off my back.Now, Lancaster advises others with disability loan insurance to follow up on payments, instead of assuming theyve been made. http://www.wsoctv.com/money/23700501/detail.html
Final Update - $250 Parking Ticket. Please help. - Pics included
Added on : Saturday May 29th 2010 10:40:03 PM
Hi,I noticed a parking ticket this evening on the windshield of my car in my apartment parking lot. It is for $250 for parking in a handicapped spot. It was nighttime when I parked last night & there is no street lighting in my parking lot. I absolutely didn't realise I was parking in the handicapped spot because, as you can see in the picture, the handicapped parking sign is somewhat further to the right outside of that parking space. I live here but I work long hours & almost all the time, there is some car parked in that spot, when I come home. Another mgmt company had taken over my apt. building about a year ago & they had the parking lot repaved a few months ago & I am just realising the handicapped spot was moved to where I was parked. The ticket was issued this morning at 12.30 am & technically all info on the ticket is filled & correct.
It was a completely unintentional though stupid mistake. I work with the disabled people & that's the last thing I would ever do. I am just very dissapointed. To make worse, between last night & today, someone has scratched both sides of my car extending from front hood to the rear with a sharp object. I am really mad about that. I have an excellent driving record. Before anyone says so, yes, I do feel so stupid. Be sarcastic or make fun but please give honest advice, too if possible. This is in the Illinois state in the dupage county.
thanks a lot. UPDATE - I went to the local police office this evening. I was directed to the records section to get more info on my options. The lady cop there asked me, what defense I am considering, & when I mentioned the sign is non-compliant with the state laws, she asked me about the painted sign on ground, which i said was too faded & not visible well enough at night time in poor lighting. She then told me that if I go to court & lose, I am looking at about $350 or so total cost incl. court costs. Per her, The process is that I can first plead with the officer who issued me the ticket & if he thinks the ticket is correct, I can come back & request a court hearing, which will be given considering officer's availability. She told me, the said officer, a sergeant is on patrol from 6pm to 4am this fri/sat/sun. I can come to the police station between those times & someone there can have me talk to him on the phone. This is the only way, she told me. At the court hearing, I appear straight before the judge. She didn't mention anything about me meeting the prosecutor first & I forgot to specifically ask her that. She filled out all the info but did not actually submit it for court hearing date request & I can go back & do that. Also, I can only request 1 extension for the court date. Ironically, a handicapped signpost outside the police office parking lot was behind a small 6 foot tree, not the best place, though it was high enough.Final update - I went to the police station to meet the sergeant. He was sick, so I was allowed to plead the case before another sergeant. I had to wait 1/2 hr before I met him. I took the pictures with me & explained the situation. He asked me if I lived at the place & I nodded. He again asked me if I had done this before & I said no. I told him, given the somewhat vagueness of the signpost, i would appreciate if he can consider any leniency. He waited a minute & then told me, the best he can do is lower the fine to $150, I asked him to do 1/2 of the fine. he agreed & I paid $125 & thanked him.I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this thread esp. lonestar & some other members. I also want to mention, there was something in one of the links to the illinois accesibilty code which made me decide that it was probably not worth the risk to take my case to the court. I post it here as stated - The bill states that it is no defense to such a violation that an intended accessible parking place does not comply with the technical requirements of the Code, Department of Transportation regulations, or a local ordinance, if a reasonable person would be made aware, by a sign or notice on or near the parking place, that it is reserved for persons with disabilities.
This deal seemed pretty hot to me, but since it is a freebie I put it in "Free Stuff". Credit for the deal goes to Jonathan at MyMoneyBlog.comMyMoneyBlog.com said:Personal finance software Microsoft Money was discontinued as of mid-2009, but Microsoft recently released Money Plus Sunset Deluxe and Money Plus Sunset Home and Business available for free download.

Why?
The stated reason for these editions is to avoid any ongoing online activation/re-activation issues with old software. Do be aware that the online abilities are disabled (no online quotes, no bill payment, no statement downloads initiated by Money, no data sync with MSN Money online services). There will not be any additional support available from Microsoft, only online self-help and through other users.

Money Plus Sunset Deluxe is designed to be a replacement for expired versions of Money Plus Essentials, Money Plus Deluxe, and Money Plus Premium versions. Money Plus Sunset Home and Business is designed to be a replacement for expired versions of Money Plus Home and Business.

Worth a download?
If youre okay with staying offline, this version of MS Money might serve as an adequate free personal accounting and tracking software for a while longer. You can still manually import MS Money OFX files from your bank or other financial institutions. The Business versions allow to you print invoices. If you have an older version of Money, this is basically a free upgrade to the last edition sold.

Otherwise, its probably time to take another look at Intuit Quicken if you still want a full-featured desktop solution, which starts at about $40.Direct Links:

Public Service AnnouncementIn reading the comment in other threads, I am shocked by the lack of understanding of stock order types, what they mean, and when to use them. Uneducated (or worse, people that think they are educated) are jumping into the market without understanding basic mechanisms and, in effect, exposing themselves to significant risksIf you learn nothing else, learn this: DON'T USE MARKET ORDERS!!!
ORDER TYPESMarket Order: Immediately execution(1) at National Best Bid and Offer (NBBO). The definition of immediate execution is undefined. When you place a market order, you are effectively telling your broker "Give me XXX shares of ABC at the best price right now!." Your order is then routed to an exchange (2).The benefits of market order is that you are guaranteed to have your trades execute (as long as there are bids/offers).The risk in market orders is that there is a chance that NBBO at a given time may be far from the last trade amount. Let's use an example where a stock's last trade is at $145. If for some reason (technical glitch, after hour trading, low liquidity), the best bid on the book is 0.05. You put in a market order for 100 shares, you will execute at $0.05 rather than $145. So instead of netting $14,500, you net $5.Another example is say the current bids are:
100 57.9400100 54.0000800 0.0001And you put in a market order to sell 500 shares, 100 sells @ $57.84, 100 sells @ $54, and 300 sells at $0.0001. This is most likely not what you intended.DON'T USE MARKET ORDERS
Limit Order: An order to sell or buy at a set price or better. When you place a limit order, you are telling your broker "Give me xxx shares of ABC at $yy.yy or lower". Your order will then be routed to the Limit Order Book to be matched. Everyone in the market can see your order.The benefit of Limit Orders is that you are guaranteed to only trade at a given price. You know what price you'll buy or sell at.The risk in a limit order is that in a fast moving market, your limit order may not hit. For example, if it is currently trading at $145 and you put in a limit order to sell at $146, it may never hit $146 and your order will not execute. Stop Order: A stop order turns into a market order when the last traded price touches the stop price.When you place a stop order, you are effectively telling your broker "IF the last traded price for ABC is $XXX, sell yyy shares IMMEDIATELY." Your stop order stays at your broker (it does not get published out to the market). When the stop price hits, the broker sends out a market order for the stock.The benefits of a stop order is that it can be used to cut your losses in a crashing market or lock in your gain. Say that you bought AAPL @ $195 and it's currently trading at $254, you may want to set a stop at $210 so that if the market does crash, you can lock in a gain of $15.The risk of stop order is that you can easily get knocked out. Using the above example, let's say that AAPL somehow drops to $209; your stop executes; you sell your shares at $209. Later on in the day, AAPL rallies back to $250. You would have sold your shares for a lot cheaper than you should have. (This is called, "getting stopped out") Unscrupulous market makers, institutional investors, and hedge funds sometimes use this to their advantage. A market maker may be able to detect a large number of investors setting stops at a certain price (3). With that knowledge, they would force the price to that level, trigger the sells and buy the stocks at a cheap price.
Stop Limit Order: A stop limit order turns into a limit order when the last traded price is the stop price.When you place a stop limit order, you are effectively telling your broker "IF the last traded price for ABC is $XXX, put in a limit order for yyy shares $ZZZ"The benefits of a stop limit order is similar to the stop order as well as the benefit of knowing at what price it'll execute.The risk is the same as a stop order. In addition, there is a chance that your trade will not execute. For example, if you put a stop limit order of $210 stop/$209 limit, there is a chance that in a high volatile market, the stock gaps down from $210 to $205 and never touches $209. At this point, your trade won't execute.______________________________________________________ORDER ATTRIBUTES
In addition to order types, there are also a number of optional order attributes that can be place on your trade. These effect the execution of your trades.All or None (AON): Either all of your order quantity gets executed or none of them. This can only be done with minimum of 300 shares. The risk of using AON is that a trade may not get executed.
I use this a lot when I place trades. Let's say I have 500 shares of AAPL that I want to sell. If I put in a order for 500 shares, I don't want only 350 shares to sell and 150 shares sitting in my account. This annoys me for two reasons: 1) if I want to sell 500 shares, I want to sell all 500 shares. 2) if I have to put in another trade for 150 shares, I'd need to pay 2 commissionsFill or Kill (FOK): The trade either executes immediate or the trade is cancelled. Say you put in a market or limit order and there are not enough sellers or bids to fill your trade request, your entire order is cancelled.Immediate or Cancel (IOC): Any part of the trade that does not get immediate fill will be cancelled. So, for example, if you put in an IOC limit trade, any part of your trade that is not filled immediately will not execute.______________________________________________________

SEC: What Every Investor Should Know about Trade Execution
Limit order vs Market Order CANNOT REITERATE ENOUGH, DON'T USE MARKET ORDERS
PSA: Don't Use Market Order (or know your order types)
Added on : Tuesday May 11th 2010 12:40:02 AM
Public Service AnnouncementIn reading the comment in other threads, I am shocked by the lack of understanding of stock order types, what they mean, and when to use them. Uneducated (or worse, people that think they are educated) are jumping into the market without understanding basic mechanisms and, in effect, exposing themselves to significant risksIf you learn nothing else, learn this: DON'T USE MARKET ORDERS!!!
ORDER TYPESMarket Order: Immediately execution(1) at National Best Bid and Offer (NBBO). The definition of immediate execution is undefined. When you place a market order, you are effectively telling your broker "Give me XXX shares of ABC at the best price right now!." Your order is then routed to an exchange (2).The benefits of market order is that you are guaranteed to have your trades execute (as long as there are bids/offers).The risk in market orders is that there is a chance that NBBO at a given time may be far from the last trade amount. Let's use an example where a stock's last trade is at $145. If for some reason (technical glitch, after hour trading, low liquidity), the best bid on the book is 0.05. You put in a market order for 100 shares, you will execute at $0.05 rather than $145. So instead of netting $14,500, you net $5.Another example is say the current bids are:
100 57.9400100 54.0000800 0.0001And you put in a market order to sell 500 shares, 100 sells @ $57.84, 100 sells @ $54, and 300 sells at $0.0001. This is most likely not what you intended.DON'T USE MARKET ORDERS
Limit Order: An order to sell at and only at a set price. When you place a limit order, you are telling your broker "Give me xxx shares of ABC at $yy.yy only". Your order will then be routed to the Limit Order Book to be matched. Everyone in the market can see your order.The benefit of Limit Orders is that you are guaranteed to only trade at a given price. You know what price you'll buy or sell at.The risk in a limit order is that in a fast moving market, your limit order may not hit. For example, if it is currently trading at $145 and you put in a limit order to sell at $146, it may never hit $146 and your order will not execute. Stop Order: A stop order turns into a market order when the last traded price touches the stop price.When you place a stop order, you are effectively telling your broker "IF the last traded price for ABC is $XXX, sell yyy shares IMMEDIATELY." Your stop order stays at your broker (it does not get published out to the market). When the stop price hits, the broker sends out a market order for the stock.The benefits of a stop order is that it can be used to cut your losses in a crashing market or lock in your gain. Say that you bought AAPL @ $195 and it's currently trading at $254, you may want to set a stop at $210 so that if the market does crash, you can lock in a gain of $15.The risk of stop order is that you can easily get knocked out. Using the above example, let's say that AAPL somehow drops to $209; your stop executes; you sell your shares at $209. Later on in the day, AAPL rallies back to $250. You would have sold your shares for a lot cheaper than you should have. (This is called, "getting stopped out") Unscrupulous market makers, institutional investors, and hedge funds sometimes use this to their advantage. A market maker may be able to detect a large number of investors setting stops at a certain price (3). With that knowledge, they would force the price to that level, trigger the sells and buy the stocks at a cheap price.
Stop Limit Order: A stop limit order turns into a limit order when the last traded price is the stop price.When you place a stop limit order, you are effectively telling your broker "IF the last traded price for ABC is $XXX, put in a limit order for yyy shares $ZZZ"The benefits of a stop limit order is similar to the stop order as well as the benefit of knowing at what price it'll execute.The risk is the same as a stop order. In addition, there is a chance that your trade will not execute. For example, if you put a stop limit order of $210 stop/$209 limit, there is a chance that in a high volatile market, the stock gaps down from $210 to $205 and never touches $209. At this point, your trade won't execute.______________________________________________________ORDER ATTRIBUTES
In addition to order types, there are also a number of optional order attributes that can be place on your trade. These effect the execution of your trades.All or None (AON): Either all of your order quantity gets executed or none of them. This can only be done with minimum of 300 shares. The risk of using AON is that a trade may not get executed.
I use this a lot when I place trades. Let's say I have 500 shares of AAPL that I want to sell. If I put in a order for 500 shares, I don't want only 350 shares to sell and 150 shares sitting in my account. This annoys me for two reasons: 1) if I want to sell 500 shares, I want to sell all 500 shares. 2) if I have to put in another trade for 150 shares, I'd need to pay 2 commissionsFill or Kill (FOK): The trade either executes immediate or the trade is cancelled. Say you put in a market or limit order and there are not enough sellers or bids to fill your trade request, your entire order is cancelled.Immediate or Cancel (IOC): Any part of the trade that does not get immediate fill will be cancelled. So, for example, if you put in an IOC limit trade, any part of your trade that is not filled immediately will not execute.______________________________________________________

Limit order vs Market Order
$250 Parking Ticket. Please help. Pics included.
Added on : Sunday May 09th 2010 11:40:02 PM
Hi,I noticed a parking ticket this evening on the windshield of my car in my apartment parking lot. It is for $250 for parking in a handicapped spot. It was nighttime when I parked last night & there is no street lighting in my parking lot. I absolutely didn't realise I was parking in the handicapped spot because, as you can see in the picture, the handicapped parking sign is somewhat further to the right outside of that parking space. I live here but I work long hours & almost all the time, there is some car parked in that spot, when I come home. Another mgmt company had taken over my apt. building about a year ago & they had the parking lot repaved a few months ago & I am just realising the handicapped spot was moved to where I was parked. The ticket was issued this morning at 12.30 am & technically all info on the ticket is filled & correct.
It was a completely unintentional though stupid mistake. I work with the disabled people & that's the last thing I would ever do. I am just very dissapointed. To make worse, between last night & today, someone has scratched both sides of my car extending from front hood to the rear with a sharp object. I am really mad about that. I have an excellent driving record. Before anyone says so, yes, I do feel so stupid. Be sarcastic or make fun but please give honest advice, too if possible. This is in the Illinois state in the dupage county.
thanks a lot.
The dangers of debit cards
Added on : Sunday May 02nd 2010 10:40:03 AM
The issue of debit cards seems to put up regularly in various threads. Since these discussions often cover the same ground, I thought it made sense to have its own thread. That way, the next time it comes up in another thread, it would be easy to simply reference this one.Unfortunately, there are still many people out there who are ignorant of the risks of debit cards. Ill try to summarize the biggest problems here.As with credit cards, there are federal protections for debit cards, generally limiting your liability for fraudulent use to $50. This lulls some people into a false sense of security. If someone racks up charges on your credit card, you can dispute them all, and the bank cant try to collect any of the money while they do their investigation. By contrast, with a debit card, the money is already gone from your account! Theres no requirement for the bank to give it back while they do their investigation. Especially in the case of international charges (even Canada), the investigation can take many months.Let me repeat: even if you detect the fraud quickly, you could still be short thousands of dollars while fighting a protracted battle against your bank!Ah, but you dont travel internationally with your debit card. Doesnt matter! Many thieves who steal numbers in the U.S. are part of rings who then send the numbers overseas for exactly that reason. Remember, a signature-based transaction on a debit card goes through exactly the same network as on a credit card.Oh, so youll just avoid doing signature based transactions? Still not safe. Many card numbers are stolen by skimmers on POS terminals and ATM machines. Even if youre doing a PIN-based transaction or getting cash from the ATM, the skimmer still gets your debit card number for future fraud.Let me repeat: even if you only use your debit card in the ATM, youre still at risk for debit card fraud.At this point, many debit card advocates resort to saying that debit card fraud is rare, and you shouldnt live in fear. First, its not rare, and its growing quickly. You can download a research report on the topic from Actimize, an anti-fraud company. Second, its not living in fear to take reasonable precautions. How many people on FW lock their doors, shred sensitive documents, and periodically monitor their credit reports? Why? Because even though the risk of burglary or identity theft is low, the pain if they happen is very high, and precautions are easy to take.In the case of debit cards, the appropriate precaution is to never carry or use one. Find a bank that will either issue an ATM card or can disable the POS functionality. For any banks that cant do that, either shred the cards or keep them somewhere that they wont be found during a burglary. Make all of your purchases with credit cards, which are both safer and have more benefits.

Food Stamps can now be used for fast food
Added on : Monday April 19th 2010 09:52:50 PM
in LA County...http://marketplace.publicradio.org/display/web/2010/02/17/am-ebt/TEXT OF STORY
Steve Chiotakis: There are some new signs adorable barter into fast aliment restaurants about Los Angeles these days. No, they're not bright close-ups of half-pound beef patties. They are apparent white and dejected signs, saying: "Now Accepting EBT" -- that's autograph for aliment stamps. Reporter Vanessa Romo has more.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vanessa Romo: Things weren't consistently so acute for Maria Ochoa. She already endemic a adorableness salon, a house, and a gold Lexus. But now she's at El Pollo Loco bistro her one hot meal of the day.

Maria Ochoa: I consistently eat algid food, but I'm annoyed because sometimes we wish some hot meals. And now that I apperceive that they get the EBT, I appear actuality and eat a hot meal.

EBT stands for Electronic Benefits Transfer. It's a debit agenda for aliment stamps.

Ochoa, a woman in her 50's with red coiled hair and able nails, is now active in that gold Lexus. Six months ago, she would accept been hard-pressed to acquisition a restaurant that takes aliment stamps. Now El Pollo Loco, Dominos and Jack in Box are allotment of L.A. county's Restaurant Commons program.

Lydia Erviti oversees the program, which includes added than 500 restaurants.

Lydia Erviti: Our ambition is to accommodate advantageous commons for the homeless, disabled and aged participants. Especially the abandoned because they don't accept amplitude to abundance aliment or cook.

Restaurant Commons is aswell paying off for those on the affable end.

Joe Stein is the arch of Strategy and Innovation for El Pollo Loco:

Joe Stein: I can acquaint you for 2010, just the way it's trending, we wouldn't be afraid if for aggregation and authorization aliment was over $2 million. From something that just started in August 09, that's appealing acceptable admeasurement growth.

Good abundant to absorption added chains in abutting the program, like Pizza Hut and Burger King. But aliment stamps still will not get you a Big Mac or Craven McNuggets. Not yet anyway.

That's OK with Maria Ochoa:

Ochoa: With my claret burden and my diabetic, I can not eat too abundant alkali and anointed food. That's why I adopt to appear here.

For now she's afraid with the broiled chicken.
