1. Editor's Notes
Hi! I'm including an article this issue to help protect you as a
consumer with respect to identity fraud. We're also looking into 
getting access to some really wonderful products, but I'll have 
to hold off on that announcement as we're still evaluating that 
product line as a possibility. Don't miss a subscriber only special
coupon I've included below for you and also a free ad offer.
And... as for my family, we ended up having a great dinner together
with the kids and with my folks on Valentine's Day and spent
time at Universal Studios over that weekend with the kids. 
in this issue- $10 off any purchase of $45 or more at Giftsprings-
expires March 2nd - so hurry - just use coupon code: GIFTFORME
during checkout.
(Valid for retail customers, does not apply for wholesale acct customers)

Also, if you'd like a special free ebook I'm making available to you
through this issue, just email me and ask for it. I'll send it to you
by email as an attachment so look for it if you want it. It's called
"101 Romantic Ideas" and it's by Michael Webb. I think you'll find
something fun and useful among all those ideas!
Enjoy the rest of this ezine...
Wishing you a wonderful week,    
Liz Hekimian-Williams

2. Inspirational Thought For Your Day
I just saw an episode about a teenager who started off
from his living room with the support of his parents,
broadcasting and trying to make it into becoming the
best late night talk show - he started 5 years ago when
he was 14, with not much more than gumption and 3000%
persistence. He says he made over 300 invitations and
phone calls until he landed one guest to appear on his show.
Now he has about 200,000 viewers through a local cable channel,
he just appeared on Oprah, and will soon be appearing on E!
Entertainment TV. You know how much more exposure this "kid"
is getting now! He also has been getting more and more celebrities 
to appear with him in his living room production "studio" too.
If this young man can stick to his dreams like a hawk and work
at it, work at it, til it happens (and it is happening for him more
every week, every year) ... surely you can make your "it" happen
for you too!
Keep this one in mind for motivation!

6. Feature Article

Don’t Become An Identity Fraud Statistic!
by Kristi Sayles

“You’ve just won a fabulous vacation or prize package! Now, if
you’ll kindly give me your credit card information and social security
number for verification purposes, you will receive this awesome gift!”

Now why would they need my credit card or social security number
to send me a freebie? Can you say, “identity theft?”

Although there are legitimate reasons for people to need that
information, such as a purchase or job application, thieves need
it to steal your life and money from you!

Crime officials are reporting that this kind of theft is becoming
quite common. Don’t be a victim! Follow a few common-sense
suggestions to avoid finding out someone else has taken over
your life-along with your bank account!

-Do not allow anyone to borrow your credit cards! Your best
friend may be trustworthy, but her boyfriend may not be!

-Don’t provide personal information such as date of birth, credit
card numbers, your pin number, mom’s maiden name, or social
security number over the telephone unless you initiate the call.
Don’t leave mail lying around for strangers to pry into. How well
do you really know your teen’s friends?

-Destroy all bills, pre-approved credit card applications, credit
card receipts, and other financial information when you no longer
need such items.

-Don’t keep private information like pin numbers and such in your
purse or wallet. It’s just too risky. We humans are much too
forgetful. Be honest, how many times have YOU had to return to a
restaurant or friend’s home to retrieve your purse? Is there anything
in there that could harm you if it was stolen or lost? Time to check.

-Check your credit reports regularly. To order your report, call the
three major credit bureaus at these toll-free numbers: Equifax at
(800) 685-1111, Experian at (888) 397-3742, or Trans Union at
(800) 888-4213. By law, the most you can be charged for a copy
of your report is $8.50. To be safe, consider getting a copy from
each of the three companies. If after reviewing your report you spot
signs of a possible fraud, report it immediately!

-Keep your passwords and pins confidential and secure. Avoid
passwords and pin numbers that will be easy for a thief to figure
out. For example, don't use your name, street address or birth date.
Also, change your passwords every once in awhile, just to be safe.

The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive
and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide
information to help consumers spot, stop and avoid them. To file a
complaint or to get free information on consumer issues, visit or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357);
TTY: 1-866-653-4261. The FTC enters Internet, telemarketing,
identity theft and other fraud-related complaints into Consumer
Sentinel, a secure, online database available to hundreds of civil and
criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. Report
suspected Internet-based fraud to the Federal Trade Commission
or the IFCC (, a new joint project of
the FBI and the National White Collar Crime.
