§ How to Protect Yourself while online § provides practical tips from the federal government and the technology industry to help you be on guard against Internet fraud, secure your computer,
protect your personal information and shows you
where and how to file a complaint.

What is Spyware?
Spyware is software installed on your computer without your consent to monitor or control your computer use. Clues that spyware is on a computer include a barrage of pop-up ads, a browser that takes you to sites you don't want, unexpected toolbars or icons on your computer screen, keys that don't work, random error messages, and sluggish performance when opening programs or saving files.

    To lower your risk of spyware infections:
  • Update your operating system and Web browser software, and set your browser security high enough to detect unauthorized downloads.
  • Use anti-virus software and a firewall, and keep them up-to-date.
  • Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Enticing free software downloads frequently bundle other software, including spyware.
  • Don't click on links inside pop-up windows.
  • Don't click on links in spam that claim to offer anti-spyware software; you may unintentionally be installing spyware.
  • Consider using anti-spyware software.
Is it safe to shop online?
Shopping on the Internet can be economical and convenient. Shopping on the Internet is no less safe than shopping in a store or by mail.
    To help ensure that your online shopping experience is a safe one;
  • Know who you’re dealing with. Confirm the online seller’s physical address and phone number in case you have questions or problems.
  • Know exactly what you’re buying. Read the seller’s description of the product closely, especially the fine print.
  • Know what it will cost. Factor shipping and handling — along with your needs and budget — into the total cost of the order.
  • Pay by credit or charge card, for maximum consumer protections.
  • Check out the terms of the deal, like refund policies and delivery dates.
  • Print and save records of your online transactions.

If you have problems during an online shopping transaction, try to work them out directly with the seller, buyer or site operator. If that doesn't work, file a complaint with:

  • the Attorney General's office in your state. You can find your state Attorney General's contact information on the website of the National Association of Attorneys General.
  • your county or state consumer protection agency. Check the blue pages of the phone book under county and state government.
  • the Better Business Bureau.
  • the FTC.

No safety issues other than speeding and reckless driving have been reported as of late in the neighborhood

If you notice any suspicious activities in the park or elsewhere in our neighborhood, PLEASE notify the police immediately at 954-7025 and ask for 'PATROL' or call the regular SPD number - 316-1199.
We need your help to keep our neighborhood safe!

  • Restrict unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices
