Avoid Phishing Attacks
Before typing your username and password to enter a site, make sure the website address is correct. Do not click on links from e-mails you receive. Microsoft acknowledged in October that over 10,000 Live Hotmail accounts were compromised by a phishing scam.
Don’t Trust “Scareware”
Do not click on advertisements claiming you might be infected with a virus. Rogue ads recently started popping up on sites like The New York Times that purport you have a virus only to trick you into downloading malware. Rely on your system anti-virus for this.

Have you heard about H.A.R.P?
The Obama Administration's Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) is designed to assist homeowners in refinancing their mortgages - even if they owe more than the home's current value. If you are current on your mortgage, with or without equity, then you may be eligible for this program.
As the government continues to purchase mortgage backed securities, rates continue to fall and are at record lows. HARP allows you to take advantage of current market rates even if you are "underwater".
