You didn’t learn it at school or the office. Would you believe your mother? Networking is more than shaking hands and giving out business cards. Forget about the endless networking skills you may have learned at the office. We have to put the few lessons our mothers taught us into practice. As kids, we were always in a hurry to find something better. Our mothers taught us patience.
If you are in a hurry, you miss the value of taking the time to build relationships in networking. Establishing a relationship by taking the time gives you a solid networking-building framework.
Your mother worked hard as an example. This is one of the better examples of networking she gave you. That’s why it is called networking, not sit work. For networking to succeed, you must work hard and put in the effort.
Remember her telling you to share your things with others? Our best resources are the time, money, and information we are willing to give to the relationship. They appreciate us when we are eager to give.

LIGHT SIDE A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
All the rooms were taken when the soldier got into town. After pleading with the desk clerk, the clerk remarked. “Well, I do have a double room with only one occupant, but to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in an adjoining room have complained. I am not sure it would be worth it to you”. “No problem.” The tired army guy assured him, “I will take it.
When he came for breakfast the next morning, the clerk asked, “How did you sleep?” “Never better,” replied the soldier. The desk clerk was impressed. “No problem with the other guy snoring,” the clerk asked?” “No, I shut him up in no time,” explained the soldier. “How did you manage that?” asked the clerk.
“Well, he was already in bed, snoring away, when I walked into the room, so I gave him a kiss on the cheek,” explained the soldier. Then, I whispered in his ear, ” Good night, beautiful, ” and he sat up all night watching me.

The American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) warns that the hitman scam is back in a big way. The hacker behind it sends emails threatening to kill the recipient if he does not receive several thousand dollars.
This scam first appeared in December 2006 and again this past February. The emails include some personal info to make it look like the crook knows all about you. The FBI advises that you ignore the email. Please report it to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
ONLINE RENTAL FRAUD
June, August, September, and January are competitive months for rental suites. Many fraudulent ads are being placed for free on Craigslist, etc. Crooks ply on the shortage of apartments by placing ads on these sites. When someone answers, they are informed the owner had to go out of the country for a funeral. They had no one to whom they could have left the keys so the apartment could be checked.
Now comes the kicker. If you’re interested in renting the apartment, send $900.00 as the damage deposit and $1200.00 for the first month’s rent, and the key will be courier to them. A limited supply of apartments is on the market, so this is a huge target for scammers. Don’t fall for this scam. People must do their homework, physically see the apartment, talk to the owners, and have a written contract.
WARNING: CARJACKERS IN THE MALL
CST. Eric Doran #656 Chatham – Kent Police Court Services
Here’s the latest tactic by car thieves. Heads up, everyone! You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car, and get inside. You start the engine and shift into reverse when you look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space. You notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper obstructing your view. Please keep this circulating.
When you reach the back of your car, that is when the carjackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your vehicle, and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car. And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car. So now the carjacker has your car, home address, money, and keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!
Men, you, too, are at risk. You can say goodbye to your briefcase, and if you’re like many guys, keep your wallet in the glove compartment, along with your driver’s license and credit cards.
If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, drive away, remove the form later, and be thankful that you read this email. I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially women. A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents; you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.
Phishing still catches millions of persons who give out their personal information, believing the email they received was from a bank, PayPal, taxation branch, or some other Government Department. Further, instead of typing in the URL supplied by the Phisher, they click on it. Just because the URL has the proper heading doesn’t mean it will be legitimate. In phishing, they redirect it if you click on the URL and get your personal information. We trust our Government to safeguard the information we give them. But did you know that the Government is among the biggest sources of ID leaks and that penalties for ID theft are rarely imposed on those who are negligent?
