Online Resources To Test Your "Phishing" IQ - "Phishing" is an attempt to trick you into revealing personal information that can then be used to drain your bank account, raid your credit card, or steal your personal passwords and user names. These Phishing attempts usually involve receiving a fraudlent Email linked to a bogus web site where the criminal "Phisher" has laid his trap. The site may look legitimate, like it's your Bank, PayPal, Linkedin, Amazon, Hotmail, FaceBook, Yahoo, or other popular sites.

Criminals are getting very sophisticated at making these Phishing web sites look like the real thing but there are ways to spot them. Here are three very good sites that will help you learn to identify malicious Phishing Web sites before you risk losing your personal information to some crook. Must admit, I missed a few...

SonicWALL's "Phishing and Spam IQ Quiz": www.sonicwall.com/phishing/

Paypal's "Can You Spot Phishing?": www.paypal.com/fightphishing

Verisign's "Phish or No Phish?": www.phish-no-phish.com/default.aspx
Also, I updated the "List of Email Virus and Money Scams" received by Email:
www.bajawesternonion.com/Email-virus-scams-list.asp
NOTE!: Just because you received a suspicious Email that's not on the list DOES NOT mean it's not a scam or virus! - Alan, alan [-at-] BajaSatellite.com, Todos Santos

Real Estate/Rentals/House Sitting


Quality Land - Dirt Cheap - Due to current market conditions and personal situations, I have some quality properties available at very low prices in Todos Santos and Pescadero. These are gut-wrenching prices for the sellers, but they need to sell these properties quickly. All have ocean views and are a short walk to the nearest beach.

Available - 1 1/2 acres of prime Las Tunas with underground power under $30/m2 and - 2 1/2 acres of farmland in the Pescadero huertas for $12.50/m2. There are also 1800 square meter lots available in the Pescadero huertas for $32,500 each, and I have a beautiful 5000 square meter parcel with many large Cardon cacti available for only $15/m2. These prices are around 40% of what similar pieces were selling for 2 years ago.
