TSA Needs to Shape Up

With the added security measures at the airport it still hasn’t helped the Transportation Security Administration better track security breaches. According to the Office of Inspector General at Homeland Security, TSA still has not been able to improve upon their security measures.

After an investigation requested by Sen. Frank Lautenberg it was discovered that TSA “took corrective actions for only 42 percent of security breaches at the airport between January 1, 2010 to May 31, 2011”.

For example, within the last year, there have been multiple security breaches including a knife passing though the security checkpoint and a dead dog that was transported without being screened for disease or explosives. Though in spite of all their mistakes, TSA does have a comprehensive mechanism. They are able to gather information and study similar trends to better themselves.

On the other hand, many times TSA agents do not report security breaches, which lead to a different number of occurred incidents and the number of incidents that actually happened.

Two Arrested for Timeshare Scam

Transfer Smart reports on two women who were arrested in Clermont for being involved in a timeshare scam. These women were the ones behind a telemarketing business that claimed to help timeshare owners sell their timeshares. According to the report, the women would cold-call timeshare owners and convince them that they had a buyer waiting to purchase their timeshares. The only catch to this deal is that the owners would have to pay an upfront fee before receiving any further information. The company these women worked for was called RCIJB World Enterprise. The company would collect the payment but wouldn’t finish the sale. The group’s president was Jennifer Bacon who worked with Carmen Rodriguez, who was the owner and operator. Once the officers were able to gather enough information, the two women were arrested and charged with “second-degree grand theft, exploitation of an elderly or disabled person, unlicensed real-estate activity and related charges”. Both of the women were taken to the Lake County Jail after they were arrested.
