I haven’t posted for a while. Life has been extremely busy. Among the many seasonal activities (shopping, putting up the Christmas tree, wrapping presents, etc.), I’ve been converting an old laptop to run Linux. So far, everything works pretty good, although I’m still looking for a good offline blog editor that will run on Linux.

In looking around, I found the below. I present it as a public service announcement:

The AFLAC Scam

Watch out for this scam. Police say that the gang usually is comprised of four members, one adult and three younger ones.

While the three younger ones, all appearing sweet and innocent, divert their ‘mark’ (or intended target) with a show of friendliness , the fourth — the eldest — sneaks in from behind the person’s back to expertly rifle through his or her pockets and purses or bags for any valuables being carried.

The picture below shows the gang in operation.
