Watch Out For This Mobile Telephone Scam: You Calling Yourself — and What You Can Do

I received two telephone calls from Brian Cohen over the past 24 hours. I did not answer my mobile telephone when it rang because — well — I know I did not call myself.

Although I found this bizarre, I reminded myself that over the years, I have received e-mail messages from “myself” which used my e-mail address — but that was easy enough to check...

Save Your Money: 7 Tricks I Actually Use to Breeze Through Airport Security

“Airport security is the one part of the air travel journey where there’s no special privileges other than perhaps a separate lane to stand in.
