We are full-swing into the busy Christmas season. As always, be safe when you're shopping in the busy malls. cover your PIN when you are at the cash, men keep your debit and credit cards in your pocket and not your wallet. Pick-pocketers will go for a wallet. Ladies zip up your purse and hold it close.

Canada Post has a service called Hold Mail which is great if you're away from home visiting for the Holidays: https://www.canadapost.ca/web/en/products/details.page?article=hold_mail&icid=display|ddn|int|hero|481
Watch out for phishing emails. There's so many this time of year claiming to be shipping companies, Banks, PayPal and even Facebook. The IRS and CRA scams are still in full-effect so if someone asks you to pay a bill with bitcoin or in-person with cash in a parking lot......... don't do it. Hang up and report them to the authorities!
