__a.round the Area Winthrop News Wednesday, January18,2012oPage8 rea News Legal Notices After spending spree woman sought for card theft, fraud Though many customers see showing a photo iden- tification as a hassle, Jean Peterson has a better under- standing of the importance of matching a name and face when paying for purchases with plastic. This fall, the Belle Plaine woman's credit card was stolen and easily used several places, amassing hundreds of dol- lars in fraudulent charges. She said CornerStone Bank covered the illegal charges. "Nobody, and I mean nobody, asked for her ID. She's much younger than I am," Peterson said. "It just shows how we all want to swipe your card and run." A woman - Mandy Louise Theis - is charged with the theft and fraudulent use of the card. Theis, 41, is the subject of a nationwide arrest warrant for the felony crimes. Her last known address is 121 Fern Street S. in Cambridge, Minn. She also uses the alias Mandy Louise Goble. Theis was convicted for the same or similar Offenses a dozen times between February of 2001 and September of 2011. -Belle Plaine Herald Scums going on in the area The Nicollet County Sheriff's office would like to inform citizens of scums going on. Craigslist scum: If you are selling something on Craigslist and the buyer sends you extra money, usually hundreds of dollars, this is a scum. The checks look real but they will not clear the bank. They will also keep emailing you ask- ing about sending extra money back and tell you to keep some money for your troubles. Stop replying and contact your local law enforcement agency. Computer virus scums. If for no reason you are either contacted by phone or by email about your computer being infested with viruses or being slow, this is a scam. Never trust someone calling and never trust emails unless you first contact them about your computer problem. The safest thing to do would be to take your computer to a trusted computer service company. -Lafayette Nicollet Ledger Priests to mark milestones Several priests in the New Ulm Disocese, with past connections to McLeod County parishes, will reach milestones in 2012, according to the Prairie Catholic newsletters.

The BBB urges consumers to be especially cautious of unsolicited mail with offers of free or discounted cruises. In 2011, the BBB received more than 1,300 complaints against cruise companies. While legitimate cruise companies do offer specials periodically, there are always those sneaky few that end up leaving con- sumers on the hook for thousands of dollars. Many times, scammers will send numerous e-mails, postcards, and other mailings trying to get you to call them in order to claim your "free cruise." Don't be fooled by profes- sional looking websites. Gather as much information as you can about the business, and ask a lot of ques- tions before signing on the dotted line. The BBB and recommend the following tips to consumers who are looking to book a cruise getaway: Don't be a victim. Oftentimes, vacation scammers will use high- pressure sales tactics and make you feel coerced to buy the limited-time deal on the spot. A reputable busi- ness or travel agent will provide any information that you request, and give you time to consider your options before booking a vacation. Always check the business first. If an offer sounds toogood to be true, it usually is. Before giving a busi- ness any personal information, check out their BBB Business Review at Consumers can also contact the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) for information on finding a reputable travel agent. Pay with a credit card. For your best protection against a dishonest cruise provider, always pay for your cruise fare -- both the initial deposit and the final payment -- with a major credit card such as MasterCard, Visa or American Express. If problems arise, you may be able to dispute the charges with your credit card compa- ny. This same protection may not apply to those using debit or check cards; it's important to confirm poli- cies with your issuing bank before you charge. Ensure your money is in the right hands. After you've made a pay- ment, review your credit card or bank statement and make sure that any applicable charges originate directly with the cruise line, not with the trav- el agency. That way, you'll know that the cruise line has definitely received your money. If you must pay by check or money order, it should be made payable to the cruise line -- not to the agency or to an individual. Get proper confn'mation of your booking. Insist on getting the actual cruise line's confirmation numbers, not just a confirmation number from your agency. Not only will you then know that your information and money is in the right hands, but you'll also be able to pre-reserve shore excursions, restaurant reservations and spa appointments (where avail- able) on the cruise line's website. Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions. Before signing on the dot- ted line make sure all of the details have been clearly outlined and the pricing has been thoroughly explained. Double check whether there are hidden cancellation fees, port charges, or insurance processing fees that haven't been covered. Consider investing in travel insurance. Travel insurance can pro- vide protection in the event of an accident, an illness, lost luggage, or a canceled or interrupted trip, among other things. Follow the same steps outlined here when buying travel insurance. For more consumer tips you can trust, visit news.
