In some cases, scammers have asked for social security numbers in order to allow for credits or to apply payments to customers’ utility bills, presenting an identity-theft risk. According to reports, scammers have visited customers in person, posted fliers and used social media and texting to send messages claiming that President Obama will provide a credit or directly pay utility bills.

Do you or a family member have a prepaid card? Are you paying fees on it? You probably are.
What is a prepaid card?
Prepaid cards are commonly referred to as prepaid credit cards, but they function more like debit cards than credit cards. Credit cards extend lines of credit to cardholders, whereas a prepaid card only uses money loaded on the card. Basically, you deposit deposit money into your prepaid account and use the funds when you need them. You don’t need to have a bank account, and typically those who cannot get a traditional bank account will use prepaid cards. But there are things you need to know before you purchase one.

These days, perhaps more than ever, having patience is most definitely a virtue. And from where I’m standing, nowhere is patience needed more than when you apply for a mortgage loan. Whether you’re looking to purchase a home or refinance your home, being a borrower in today’s market may make even the most tolerant among us lose our cool. But that doesn’t mean you should shy away from purchasing or refinancing. Interest rates are still historically low and home prices are more or less stable. Instead, what it means is that you should be prepared for your loan approval and funding to take at least a month and you should expect curveballs to be thrown your way during the process.
