Apple Crisp With a Berry Twist
There is something about
fall, with its cooler days and the abundance of juicy apples, that brings out the baker in us all. Brisk breezes and rustling leaves almost seem to whisper “apple crisp.”

For a sur- prise, cut an apple in half widthwise to reveal star design in the middle. Place slices in a large bowl. Add slightly thawed blackber- ries, sugar, flour and lemon
Mystery Shopping and Other Scams
“Mystery shopper oppor- tunities” are making a resur- gence in email boxes. Yes, there are legitimate companies. If you’ve been working for one for a long time and are happy with them, feel free to continue. But if you want to get started now, don’t. Wading through the myriad offers and trying to decide which are on the level is asking for trouble. When you sign up, you’re likely to be asked for your name, address, email address and bank account informa- tion for “instant” receipt of your pay via wire transfer. That’s too much informa- tion for a company you don’t know. You also may be asked to pay a fee to sign up, or for “certification.” Barring that, chances are

that the only “shopping” you’ll be asked to do will involve receiving checks in the mail with instructions to take out your fee and send them the balance of the money by MoneyGram. The check will end up being no good, and you’ll be out the money you wired to them. If someone offers to pay a ridiculous amount of mon- ey to a stranger for a mini- mal amount of work, think “scam.” One inventive scam involves offers to pay people to put advertising signs on their cars and drive

around. Amounts offered are up to $1,000 in advance and then $500 per week to drive around with a vinyl sign stuck to your car. You don’t have to answer any questions, such as about the number of miles you drive or where you drive. A legiti- mate advertiser would want to know where his ads would be seen. Your payment will be in the form of a check, which you are instructed to cash, take out your fee, and send the balance by Western Union back to the company. Do you see a pattern here? Another scam can reach
us right where we live: our homes. Home secu- rity systems are designed to make us feel safer. The Federal Trade Commission has investigated numer- ous complaints involving high-pressure sales tactics, shoddy merchandise and more. The warning signs: Someone (likely part of a roving team) comes to your door, impersonating a repre- sentative of the monitoring company you already use. You’re told your old system is deficient in some way, and that the new equipment itself is free if you’ll just sign a contract.
