Preserving My Assets

assets2.png

We start things off with Bob from Philadelphia who is concerned about preserving his assets. Having witnessed many of his colleagues struggle since the 2008 financial crisis, he wants to make sure the same doesn’t happen to him.

We then went to John from North Carolina who is trying to figure out what to do with a good chunk of extra cash now that his wife has gone back to work full-time. That’s what I like to call a good problem to have.

The email trend continues in hour two. Another good problem to have.

Scam Me If You Can with Frank Abagnale

Are you at risk of being scammed? 

Our latest guest is former con artist and bestselling author of Catch Me If You Can, Frank Abagnale, and he’s here to show you how to stop scammers in their tracks.

Maybe you're wondering how to make the scam phone calls stop. Perhaps someone has stolen your credit card number. Or you've been a victim of identity theft. Even if you haven't yet been the target of a crime, con artists are always out there, waiting for the right moment to steal your information, your money, and your life.

As one of the world's most respected authorities on the subjects of fraud, forgery, and cyber security, Frank Abagnale knows how scammers work. 

In his latest work, Scam Me If You Can, he reveals the latest tricks that today's scammers, hackers, and con artists use to steal your money and personal information, often online and over the phone. Using plain language and vivid examples, Abagnale reveals hundreds of tips, including:

  • The best way to protect your phone from being hacked

  • The only time you should ever use a debit card

  • The one type of photo you should never post on social media

  • The only conditions under which you should use WiFi networks at the airport

  • The safest way to use an ATM

With his simple but counterintuitive rules, Abagnale also makes use of his insider intel to paint a picture of cybercrimes that haven't become widespread yet.

The Weight of College Financing

The Weight of College Financing

When I talk about funding college, I proffer the usual advice: Build your family’s financial foundation (pay down debt, establish an emergency reserve fund, and maximize retirement plan contributions) BEFORE trying to tackle college funding; talk to your kid as early as freshman year in high school about what the family can afford; and don’t shortchange your own or your child’s financial future by amassing mounds of debt.
