Ian Leaf’s Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams #IanLeaf

Book Review 1-2016

Ian Leaf’s Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams was an interesting book to read.  I am glad it was a shorter book because I don’t know that I could have gotten through it if it had been longer.   This book walks you through setting up an Instagram account for your business as well as what to post on it and how to use hashtags and think like that.  I haven’t gotten into Instagram for my blog but after reading this book, I think I am going to try and see if it really will help me build a bigger audience.  This book is written in plain English and isn’t something that you wouldn’t understand if you are 100% knowledgeable on Instagram and how it works.  I am going to test out what this book says to do and in a few months, I will come back and let you know how it all worked out for me.

About The Book

With the world around us changing at a seemingly breakneck pace and technological advancements radically altering the manner in which we communicate and do business with each other, far too many people are falling prey to fraudsters who understand all too well how to take advantage of our rapidly changing world. Ian Leaf’s newest work focuses on addressing this important issue by demonstrating how people can utilize new and innovative social media platforms like Instagram without placing themselves at risk of being scammed in some unforeseen way.

In “Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams – What to Watch for on Instagram,” Ian Leaf uses his professional expertise to demonstrate the safest methodologies available regarding the effective use of Instagram, Facebook and other social media platforms that are becoming increasingly critical communication tools for both personal use and for enhanced brand awareness. Through Leaf’s new book, consumers, brand managers, entrepreneurs and others can continue to experience the many benefits made possible through effective social media use while eliminating any concerns relating to being taken advantage of by those engaged in deceptive behavior and outright acts of fraud.

Leaf’s text begins by sharing similar circumstances he experienced with fraudsters taking advantage of consumers using Amazon’s platform, outlining how his efforts revealed this unscrupulous behavior and ensured that consumers were able to conduct business without the negative influence of scammers going to great lengths to manipulate product reviews for their own financial gain. His success in exposing this fraudulent behavior is not an isolated incident, as Leaf has enjoyed a long professional career in fraud detection and has assisted many consumers in learning how to recognize fraud and how to defend against being victimized.

The book also covers some of the more practical aspects of social media use, as Leaf takes the time to go through the step-by-step processes involved in registering for an Instagram account and setting it up for personal or professional use. The educational components cover both simple and complex issues relating to social media use, from explaining how to effectively employ the use of a hashtag to detailing how to link multiple social media accounts so they are thoroughly protected from the tactics commonly used by scammers and fraudsters. With practical advice, straightforward explanations and rare insight, Ian Leaf’s “Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams – What to Watch for on Instagram” provides valuable information for anyone who wishes to avoid the consequences of being victimized by fraudsters while using various social media platforms.

Killer Pursuit by Jeff Gunhus #killerpursuit

Winter Book Review

Killer Pursuit by Jeff Gunhus was a good book.  I have read tons of books this past year and I think that this book is at the top of the list of the books I have enjoyed reading this year.  I also really enjoyed this authors style of writing and his characters.  I also can’t wait to pick a few of his others books up in the new year.  Anyway, let’s get on to the review of this book.  I am a huge fan of Allison because she is such a strong female character that can be hard to find in books in this genre.  I really can’t say enough great things about this book because I loved it from the start and I was left feeling sad when I was done with it because I loved the book.  I know I am adding his other books to my list so that I can read more of his books.  If you love thriller type books than I would recommend this book to you.

Killer Pursuit by Jeff Gunhus

About The Book

When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection…and no-one knows who’s on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder. The most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but with rumors that the victim’s client list may have included Mason’s political enemies, Allison worries about the director’s motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she’s not the only one pursuing the videos. In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.

Written On Her Heart by Paige Rion

Book Review

Written On Her Heart by Paige Rion was a fun book to read.  There are parts of this book that I didn’t  enjoy but that is because I tend to get bored when you have love triangles going on.  I have to say that I didn’t like Peter from the first time you meet him right up until the end.  All the drama in this book kept me wanting to read but it also at times got old and I found myself just skimming the pages until the drama past.  I can’t wait to read the other books in this series.  If you love new adult novels than I am sure you will love this one.  If you have read it what do you think of it?

About The Book

Ford Delaney has always wanted nothing more than to escape his past.

She’s positive this will be the key to reaching her dreams. But the moment she begins working for the reclusive author, Andi realizes there’s more to him than just a name. As attraction builds between Andi and Ford, she begins to discover consequences must come hand-in-hand with something great–which could loosen control over her tightly wound life. And once romantic sparks fly, Andi’s other relationships start to crumble, Ford’s fame comes back to haunt him, and the heat they generate will either forge a powerful, enduring love or threaten everything she holds dear.

Alone at Midnight: Short Horror Collection by Scott Zavoda

Book Review Graphic

Alone at Midnight: Short Horror Collection by Scott Zavoda wasn’t something I would usually pick up to read.  I am not a huge fan of horror books but I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and read this book.  That being said it wasn’t my favorite book but that had nothing to do with the authors writing or the stories themselves.  The author did a great job writing this book  and I hope he will keep writing because he does have a talent.  I am glad I got to read these stories but they just weren’t the right match for me.

517e7qRVQdL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

About The Book

Scott Zavoda delivers with hellish vividness and aching emotion. 
These seven tales will claw at your soul. Already sold as singles, “Bobby” and “Beneath the Sand”, have garnered rave reviews. They’re included along with five more gripping stories.

  • Randy Bivins gets a shocking phone call two days before Christmas. The stranger says he stole his Christmas tree. What Randy discovers is maybe a tradition worth dying for. “Oh Christmas Tree”
  • A simple fishing trip turns deadly for Danny and his disabled brother,
    Bobby. A gut-wrenching tale of two young brothers who will do anything
    for a day away from their abusive father and the constant bullying at
    school. But a wheelchair with a history might change everything.
    “Bobby”
  • Now that surfing, dating, and every aspect of a California retirement are off limits, he paints and pretends the beach isn’t so close. But traces of sand are showing up again in this Vietnam Vet’s house and that can only mean one thing. “Beneath the Sand”
  • Trapped in a morbid, bloody, decaying land, the hot breath of his pursuer lathers his neck. Jimmy wants to believe he doesn’t know where he is, but he can’t. “Castle Point”
  • Henry Conroy pilots a Navajo across the stormy Midwest with a coffin in the back. He knows the faster he gets there, the sooner that scratching sound will stop. “Fright Flight”
  • Flowers for Mom and The Calling are two more stories with an evil twist.

These are more than just horror stories. They are filled with character, emotion, and have a way of sticking inside your heart for a long time to come.

About The Author

I was born in Cleveland Ohio, tried to move away twice but the city kept sucking me back in. So here I am, family of four, an unbelievably motivating wife, and two lovely girls.

I used to hide Dean Koontz and Stephen King books inside my school text books . . . nobody knew or stopped me or said a teenager shouldn’t read those things. I earned a D in English two consecutive years and nearly flunked a subject they used to teach called handwriting. And now I write. Can you believe it?

But people always loved my stories. In fourth grade they begged me to read one I’d written for a class assignment but I was too bashful to do it. I got The Young Authors Award in Elementary school for something I’d written, though I really didn’t’ care. I was just doing the stupid assignment.

Australian Tea Tree Oil Review #teatreeoil

Australian Tea Tree Oil Review #teatreeoil

Australian Tea Tree Oil Review #teatreeoil

I have never used Tea Tree Oil before so when I saw that I could get a free bottle to review I knew I had to jump at the chance.  I have always heard so many great things about this product that I was excited to receive it and use some of it.  I have to say that Australian Tea Tree Oil I received in order to review was a much bigger bottle than I thought I would be.  The shipping was also super quick for me because it was shipped out of Salt Lake City and that is where I live so it was almost overnight.

I also love that this came with a ebook on 53 ways to use Tea Tree Oil which was great for me because I am new to using oils so this was super helpful.  I also loved that it gave me great ideas on how to use it in bath water and different oils to mix with it.  I did use this on my Psoriasis and it did make a few places heal but not all of it.  I had hoped that I would help it all go away but it figures I wouldn’t get that lucky.  I know that this bottle will last me over a year because of how little you have to use of the product.  I am now hooked on this product and I will always make sure that I have a bottle of it handy.

Chance For Love by Rachelle Ayala

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Book Review Graphic

Chance For Love by Rachelle Ayala is a three book set and I have to say that I can’t wait to finish the books.  For the purpose of this review I just skimmed the first two books.  I didn’t look at the third book because I saw that it could ruin parts of the first two books and I didn’t want it to ruin the other books before I finished them.  I love this author and I have added her other books that I haven’t read yet.  I can swear that I read the first book Broken Build before but I can’t seem to find the review so I am not sure where I started the book before but I had.  Once I finish all 3 books I will for sure add my reviews of them to my blog.  If you are looking for some fun summer books to read I would for sure check these out.

Natural House Probiotic Cleaning Products

Natural House sent me a 30 day supply of some of their natural household cleaning products.  I received the following products:

I have used all 3 of this products and I love them!!!!  It is so nice to have something to clean the bathroom with that doesn’t have all of the horrible chemicals in them.  All 3 of these items work really well.  I think the one to clean the toilet is my favorite one of them all.  It cleans the toilet and it is fun to watch lol.  It foams up and I am like a 2 year old and love to watch if foam lol.  The trashcan one is nice to use at work because it kills the smell so that you can actually fill up the bag that is in it.  I truly can see me purchasing this items again because they are so easy to use and I love that they don’t have the nasty chemicals in them.  If you are interested in getting this products you can either click on the pictures above or click right here.  they aren’t super expensive and they work great.
