It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for criminals

Yes I’m talking about Christmas. Yes I know it’s only September. Yes I know I’m throwing your shopping brain into a frenetic frenzy by talking about it. But in this post, I’m talking to ensure you have your shopping done…indirectly, not even mentioning securely.

Christmas is only a couple of months away, can you believe it? But now is the best time to know how to protect yourself and your family from crime. Criminals are out to take your hard earned gifts away from you in a myriad of ways.

Porch Pirates will actually come up onto your porch or front step and take a package left for you. In that package could be the special gift for that special someone you saved for, for months. That is not a very happy way for the Christmas season to start or end.

Then there is always the person who will break your window or door to take the gifts from under the tree. There is a special little trick to help prevent this. This could be devastating if you have children to suddenly see all of their presents gone.  Can you explain that to them?

Of course, not all criminals will come to your house. They will accost you while you are walking to your car, or home, with your arms loaded. Again there is an easy way to thwart them but it can be annoying and a major pain for you to follow through.

Then there are the credit card thieves and other such ways that criminals will use your money to purchase gifts for themselves, their families, or feed a habit…which is the biggest one. Why do they do this? Because, in many cases they are just plain too damned lazy to work and want the easy way out.

So how can you thwart such crimes on you, your person, home, or loved ones? It is fairly simple…call me. I am more than willing to offer you and your company a workshop on protecting yourselves during the holidays. From Black Friday and Cyber Monday I have tips, tricks, and other little ways to help you avoid being a victim.

As with everything else I do, these are available any time day or night, 24/7 365 for your company. For private groups I usually stop at 8PM EST. including time for Q & A, they last about 60 – 90 minutes.

Call me, 480-251-5197, or send me an e-mail at with workshop in subject line, to schedule your time. For obvious reasons the best time to hold these is prior to Thanksgiving. The optimum time is the end of October and first part of November. Slots are filling so hurry.
