ALERT: Fake Firefox & Chrome Update JS file

ALERT! There are some sites, including Yahoo.com that have popups that look very convincing to immediately download a Critical Firefox or Chrome update. Then a download box appears with an option to run or save the update named somefilename.js. Again, it looks really legit, but it is not!

  1. The download box will never just automatically appear at legitimate sites, you would have to click to start the download in most cases.
  2. Real browser updates are .exe files, never .js - that is a javascript that will most likely install something very bad into your browser.
  3. Check the URL (www .xxx .com) Chrome is google.com and Firefox is mozilla.org 

These simple things to watch for will always save you in the end.

Pre-Get-Away Checklist

Being prepared for a road trip can be the difference between a great day and disaster.While Colorado is a breathtakingly beautiful place in Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, the weather can be volatile and unpredictable within just 10 miles. "if you don't like the weather in Colorado, just wait 15 minutes" is not just a saying. A clear sky can turn cloudy and into a blizzard or downpour in just minutes, and a windy stretch of open road can become an ice rink in the blink of an eye. Follow a standard set of precautions while traveling through the mountains or on the plains for a safe and enjoyable trip.

IRS Phone Scams

Don't fall for the latest phone scam - be safe - be aware!Government Agencies will not contact you via telephone or E-mail to settle an outstanding issue, including any payment or fee!

The IRS scam calls have never gone away. Now, however, the calls are supposedly coming from the U.S. Treasury Department or your local Sheriff’s Office. These calls are from scammers, mostly calling from outside the United States, who rout the call through a U.S. Area Code to add legitimacy and fool consumers. They are meant to frighten and scare consumers into acting compulsively by providing a credit card or buying a ‘Green Dot’ money card to make an arrest warrant go away or avoid a court appearance.
