'Tis the season

Yep, the season for giving and also, for scamming!

There are bonafide charities, of course, but there are also a bunch of con artists out there. At least once a month our caller ID lets us know that the KY Pro Firefighters has called us.

Even if home, we don't bother answering it. The KY Pro Firefighters may indeed be an up and up organization, but I remember this ABC News piece and that turned me off to these little known charities.

Heck, I won't even drop my change in the "Help (insert name) get treatment for his/her (insert disease)" jar at the local service station.
