Trick 1

Quite often we are see news stories propagated on the internet that make us scratch our heads. Like well executed double talk, they sometimes sound real, but when we dig a bit, we find that someone out there is pulling our legs.

This place has grouped fake news story sites into three catalogues:
1. Fake/Hoax News Websites
2. Satire Websites
3. Clickbait Websites

After defining each, these folks have compiled a list of over 80 sites that fit into each category. You will find that a quick visit to a sampling of these sites can be entertaining (or scary). But, in either case the visit will provide you with a taste of where some of this tomfoolery is coming from - and prepare you to recognize it when the resulting hogwash is spread across the internet.

We hope this doesn't happen to you - but if you lose your cell phone, bicycle, computer, backpack etc, (or your stuff is stolen) --- there is hope.

Be sure to visit this great place and file a report the minute a loss is realized. The program automatically emails you a copy of your report that you can then forward to the local police, keep as a record, or forward to your insurance company for filing a claim.

Your report is securely logged in the Law Enforcement Portal - which is accessible to all local and state police, nation-wide. The information is also posted on a community map allowing parents, neighbors, and local police to track individual incidents or property crime trends. The system provides a privacy-assured messaging system for reporting items found without divulging personal identification information.

A very worthwhile and valuable service - at no cost to users.
