If your dog HAS to be outside,
make sure they have shade and access to
lots of water.

Dogs need to pant to cool
themselves off, but if they're panting
too much, they can lose a lot of water
and become dehydrated.

And you should know that if your

answering job ads to be "payment

The victim receives the fake
payment and deposits the full amount
into their personal bank account.

The scammer tells the victim to
keep 10-percent and wire back the rest.

Of course, in the end the victim
is out of the money they send to the
scammer, plus they have to pay back the
bank for the amounted deposited into
their account.

bgrebe@wdbj7.com Kimberly, more and more
counterfeit checks and money orders are
flooding the market.

As we've talked about, the
work-at-home scheme starts with victims
answering job ads to be "payment
processors" for companies.

The victim receives the fake
payment and deposits the full amount
into their personal bank account.

The scammer tells the victim to
keep 10-percent and wire back the rest.

Of course, in the end the victim
is out of the money they send to the
scammer, plus they have to pay back the
bank for the amounted deposited into
their account.

VO NAT The fake checks are also being
used in transactions on websites like
craigslist.org.

They are being passed-off to pay

for items for that are for sale.

There's also a number of
questionable part-time, or work-at-home
jobs offered on the site.

To combat scams, craigslist.org
has a warning listed at the top of
pages and offers this advice.
