LOS ANGELES - November 24, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

AFutureSuperHero And Friends and Rodney Smith, Jr. Partner for 'Hope 4 The Holidays' USA Tour, a nationwide tour in which one person or family in each state will be chosen to receive donations, special visits, and more. Yuri Williams, founder of AFutureSuperHero And Friends, has become well-known for his efforts in helping those in need. He dons a superhero costume and goes to hospitals, homes, and special events, where he also gives back. Often, he partners with others who have the same mindset. Rodney Smith, Jr., is the creator of Raising Men Lawn Care Service and the "50-yard challenge", in which he encourages kids and teens to mow lawns for charity.

Now, the two are partnering for their 4th annual "Hope 4 The Holidays" tour. They will be traveling across the United States and blessing one family or individual from each state around the nation.

Williams will be dressed as a "Santa's biker scout elf" and Smith will be dressed as "Santa's helper". Together, the two will perform acts of kindness, gifting the houseless, visiting the elderly, visiting ill and disabled children, and saving Christmas for families in need.

The non-profit is looking for nominations from people across the country who know someone they'd like to see blessed in such a way. These nominations can be made by simply messaging AFutureSuperHero And Friends via social media or e-mail.

This year, as more and more people are struggling to make ends meet, Williams and Smith are committed to making the holidays brighter for those in need. Both of these men have become well-known for their passion for giving back, and as part of this, they are also giving others the opportunity to give back.

Anyone wishing to donate to this cause can do so at the ASuperHero And Friends website www.AFutureSuperHero.org

On Nov. 25, 2022, the two will embark on the 4th annual "Hope 4 The Holidays" tour. Their travels will begin in Louisville, Kentucky. Further details can be found at https://afuturesuperhero.com/.

NEW YORK - November 23, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Received a text or call this year claiming there was a problem with an Amazon order? Or how about claims of fraudulent activity on an online account? Scammers have taken on new tactics and strategies to target consumers this year, and while business imposter scams remain the No.1 phone or text scam in America, other scams have quickly entered the scene, according to the latest analysis from BeenVerified.

"Scams that show fast growth are worth our attention, as they often become scams that dominate in years to come," said Robert Lowry, the vice president of security at BeenVerified

A multitude of new and old scam angles were reported, among them ones targeting peer-to-peer payment services and other platforms connecting users directly to one another. The fastest-growing scam types in 2022 were Facebook Marketplace (up 184.8% from 2021) and P-2-P cash transfer apps Zelle (86%) and PayPal (31.8%), as well as crypto and romance scammers that use the popular phone and text message app WhatsApp (32.1%) to target their victims. 

BeenVerified examined tens of thousands of scam calls and text complaints over the course of the year. The analysis found that overall business imposter scams are the number one type of scam by volume (15.1%), followed by romance scams (14.3%), which showed an increase of 10% since 2021

4WhatsApp32.1%
5Paypal31.8%

As we head into the busy holiday shopping season, BeenVerified warns consumers to be careful of business imposter scams, which comprised 15.1% of all scam messages this year. Scammers impersonate legitimate businesses like Amazon, Apple and other name-brand companies to appear reputable to their target, only to then steal their personal or financial information.

How to help protect yourself from phone scams:

If a text, call, or email feels like it might be a scam, here are tips to help stay secure online:

  1. Don't respond to the message. Responding to messages alerts the scammer of a valid number and someone willing to talk—this can cause more attempts to solicit information. If a text or call is presumably legitimate, find the company's support number and call them back directly.
  2. Don't click links. Links can be connected to malicious software, such as ransomware, spyware or a computer virus.
  3. Don't provide personal information. Any personal information, such as a birth date, credit card security code or even the last four digits of a Social Security number, could give scammers the last piece to the puzzle they need.
  4. Don't give someone remote access to your device. Never hand over control of a computer or device, unless the owner of the device initiated contact with the company.
  5. Don't pay with gift cards. A legitimate business will never ever ask a shopper to pay by gift card.
