Be Vigilant With Your Accounts – My PSA

As technology grows, more and more we see the bad guys come out to try to take advantage on the ones that cannot grow fast enough with the tech or who choose to move forward at a less fast pace.

Recently I’ve noticed that more and more, we are seeing emails show up in our inbox (email or instant messages etc) that looks like an official email from a service that we use.

No one is immune to these emails or pop up we receive, but we can and should take the time to scrutinise every piece of electronic mail we receive to make sure that we are not being preyed upon.

I have recently received emails that look like it’s an official email from the Apple company (which is what I’ll be using as an example); but similar emails can be found coming from all other companies such as Google if you use their services or maybe yahoo (who actually uses that anymore?). That said, please take some time to check each piece of email you receive.

 

Above you can see an email I received a few weeks ago and you’ll also notice I’ve highlighted a few things on this email that you can look for when going over them with a fine tooth comb.

 

I decided to click the link to find out where it would take me, after clicking the link we can see from the next screenshot it took me to a webpage that looks like that of the Apple Website, but upon a closer look we can see that the URL (the web address circled in red) is nowhere near what Apple.com looks like. So this would be a tell-tale sign that this might be a scam.

 

TL;DR – If you receive an email from any of the services that you use that ask for your username and password. Be leery about the links, don’t click the link or enter your personal information into any field.

If you can, manually go to the company website that might look fake and log in there.

Rolling Around Lake Monroe

This was a fail of course, looks like it wasn’t healed enough.

How Weight Loss Can Reverse Type 2 Diabetes – TIME

As I am living proof, I won’t say my diabetes is cured but it is reversed and I’ve been spreading the word. Consistency in keeping the weight off is key.

Keeping an eye on what is consumed and also exercising a lot has helped in this. My form of exercise is cycling. I have gone to the extreme covering about 130-200 miles per week, but with just a few miles walking or cycling daily anyone can overcome the beast that is diabetes.
