It must be International Scam Year. Everywhere you go it is scam - scam - scam. Well, here, to help you defend yourself, is a huge searchable database of scams of every ilk.

Any time you think you are looking at an e-mail that smells a bit, simply paste a couple of key words into the search box and - Shazam - up come the strong clue (with actual examples) of the scam message you suspect.

This no-cost place not only provides the search function but also categorizes general descriptions and specific current scams into the categories such as: 419, Lottery, Love, Job Offer, Inheritance and Phishing.

The folks offering this service warn that, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." They suggest that you be careful if some of these common signposts are present: 1. The mail shows a mobile or an overseas contact phone number, an email address from a Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail account or any other free email provider. 2. The mail contains obvious spelling mistakes and poor grammar.

They're out to get you! This on the house database can help tame your greed and keep you away from temptation.

Trick 1

Wonder if your (or a loves one's) hearing is up to par? Is the most used word in your vocabulary, "What?" Want to check it quickly without laying out big bucks or spending a lot of time?

The National Hearing Test is an accurate, validated hearing screening test, developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health. This not-for-profit screening is taken over a telephone to help you determine if you need a complete hearing evaluation.

AARP members can take this test without cost. If you are not an AARP member there is a very minimal cost. The site points out that the quantity of free National Hearing Tests available to AARP members is limited so we suggest that you jump on this now if you think it can help.

To take the test, call 1-844-938-7223 - and listen very carefully.

In the coming months and years, we will begin to hear more and more about the power that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bring to many of our lives on a daily basis.

The first commercially available application of AI identifies items in real time and is called The Aipoly. This intelligent assistant is an app for the visually impaired. It empowers them to explore and understand their surroundings through computer vision and audio-feedback.

Aipoly is an object and color recognizer that helps the blind, visually impaired, and color blind understand their surroundings. To see a touch of the future, download this app without cost. Simply point your phone at the object of interest and press the large toggle button at the bottom of the screen to turn on the artificial intelligence. Airpoly speaks out loud what it sees.

Although this technology is in its infancy, it will give you a peek into an example of future uses in the exciting world of artificial Intelligence.
