Larry Bates Defense Discounts Victims Stories As Anecdotal

By Anne Trimble

One of the many ironic things about the court-ordered dismantling of Larry Bates' ill-gotten financial empire is that a frequent part of his legal defense was to dismiss as mere "anecdotes" the individual stories of victims created by the deceitful practices of his precious-metals firm, FAMC.

The painful truth of those little "stories" has added up to a cumulative judgment by precious-metals consumers around America that Bates and FAMC are "guilty" of not deserving to be in business at all. That's why Bates was in court in Memphis on Monday as his business and individual possessions entered into receivership.

And in time, those "anecdotes" also will come into play again as a court rules on the $80-million class-action suit brought against Bates and his company by many of the victims of their deceitful practices. Among other things, they materially shorted and delayed deliveries of lawfully ordered gold and silver, defrauding their customers out of a total of many hundreds of thousands of dollars.

To us, these aren't merely "stories" but the true accounts of actual people who were exploited in an evil way. We feel saddened by the number of people whom Bates cheated for many years. We directly assisted several of them understand just how he was cheating them. We guided some of them toward the lawful assistance they needed, and this eventually resulted in the class-action suit.

We are humbled that the Lord chose us to help deliver a form of earthly justice against this fraudulent man and company, who garnered so much of their business by masquerading under "Christian" principles.

Now, following Monday's court procedures, we are hearing many more "anecdotes" in the form of letters of thanks from those we had helped.

"Thanks for all your hard work!!!" read one testimonial that we have just received via e-mail. "You were 'anointed' for this. I luckily got my gold (assume it is gold) [from FAMC] and when I didn't get my silver order after years, they finally sent me a check with an increase as price had gone up. But I am [not sure] what I would have gotten had I actually gotten the silver."

The sad thing about these anecdotes is that even as his business was crumbling around him, Bates still managed to cull more victims. One man we just recently became aware of had actually waited over a year to obtain a check for an investment he had actually made. FAMC had the coins, however the man didn't get his $30,000 from Bates.

And now, sadly, it's looking like he probably never will. That's one more "anecdote" Bates can dismiss.

Understanding Your Many Options For Home Security

By Sara Ezan

Everyday, you read about home invasions and burglaries that are disturbing. This may make you think about how secure your home really is. If you think your home needs additional security, you can learn more about it from this article. Read over this information to see what you can do to make your home more safe.

Do not leave your garage doors open, even if you are currently home. Burglars will try to get in through the garage, and if it is open, they can easily break through the door to your home. Use a keypad that requires a combination to allow access into your house.

You do not necessarily need an expensive home security system to protect your home. You can buy a dog. Dogs are great for home security. Not only will they protect your home while you are away, they are great additions to your family offering protection, companionship and additional security for your home.

You need to secure your garage if it is attached to your home. There is a solution for people that are worried about burglars going into their home through an attached garage. However, you can use a C-clamp to help keep the door secure.

Protect your valuables. Some common ways to do this are by storing them inside a safe-deposit box or storing them in a heavy home safe that's nearly impossible to move. Make sure the safe is fireproof. You can use a chiseled-out space in the very top of your door for smaller valuables. You can even create a hiding place in a acoustical ceiling by removing a tile and restoring it with something like magnetic fasteners. Make sure to avoid leaving fingerprints with this method.

Some wireless home security systems have additional features such as remote control of home systems. When both parents work full-time jobs, this system is convenient for checking on school-age children until they can get home. The system can also be used to lock and unlock doors and adjust the temperature level in the home.

If you have every been the victim of a robbery, you are likely to see the value of a home security system. Your peace of mind can take precedence over the expense of installing the system. Shop carefully to be sure you are getting the best system available at the best price.

Clean up that dirty garage and park your car in it. Parking your car in your garage can really help keep criminal activity at bay. First, your car will be less of a target than if it was sitting parked on the street. Second, it makes it tougher for criminals to track your daily activities.

Use exterior lights that have motion sensors. They turn on only if someone is nearby. Not only will they notify you of movement, they will also deter potential burglars, as thieves want to remain as inconspicuous as possible. Remember to keep working bulbs in them at all times.

Because so many people are numb to the sound of alarms, it is important that you have your home security system linked to the local police station. This is helpful in case you are home and can not call 911 yourself, or you are away from home during a break in.

Whenever you lose one key, you must replace that lock. You never know if you actually lost it or someone who knows where you live stole it, and this puts you in peril. Even if it is a key to your car, it is important to have the lock rekeyed or replaced for your safety.

The best lock for an external door is at least one inches and a throw deadbolt unit. These are nearly impossible to break into and ensure no one will be getting through your defenses. Interior doors don't need such locks as they're not open to the outside world, so you can use doorknob locks there.

Lock up your home, even if you are around. Many people think that their neighborhood is the safest out there. They'll leave their doors unlocked all day (and night long) without a second thought! This is inviting trouble. Make it a habit to lock those doors (and windows) even if you're home. It's probably the most important basic thing you can do for your family's overall safety.

Purchase fire extinguishers for every room in your house in the event of an emergency. Also, make sure that you train everyone in the home on its usage, so that everyone in the family is capable. Putting out a fire as it is in its early stages can help save your home.

Ask about a maintenance schedule for your home security system. Many companies offer this free of charge. A maintenance schedule allows a qualified technician to enter your home and make adjustments, improvements and upgrades to your existing system, as well as checking to make sure it is working correctly. Your system will not help you if it is not working, so this is important.

Put down a fence in your yard to secure the area that is yours and prevent burglars from coming in. Make sure that this fence is high enough so that it is very difficult for any robbers to get over it. This will add a strong layer of protection around the perimeter of your house.

You can increase your home security by updating your entry method. Key locks can only do so much for your doors. You can try a high tech addition in the form of a digital lock. Some digital locks use key cards, while other use fingerprints or even keypads. Any one of these options can be a viable security boost.

There is no point in investing in an alarm system which doesn't fully protect your home, of course. You need to have sensors in place on every single window and door to be sure no one can get inside. If you don't, you will be gambling with the fact that the burglar may not think of entering in the same way you expect them to.

By applying the information from this article, you can start making your home more secure for you and your family. Be aware of what is happening in your neighborhood, and never take your security for granted. If you take the necessary precautions, you can prevent your home from becoming the next target.

Essential Things To Do Before And After Spreading On Sun Labs Dark Sunsation Lotion

By Haywood Hunter

Many count on Sun Labs Dark Sunsation when it comes to having an indoor tan. It's perfect for fair-skinned individuals who want a lovely sun-kissed glow safely. The product is also being used by those born with naturally olive skin but want to have it intensified.

Sun Labs Dark Sunsation lotion contains adequate dihydroxyacetone or DHA to give you a fake suntan rich enough to catch everyone's fancy. Included dyes cause skin darkening on the spot. DHA's effect becomes visible 3 hours after the application. Expect for the golden brown tone produced to continue to darken for the next 24 to 72 hours.

There are certain things you need to carry out before and after you reach for that Sun Labs Dark Sunsation bottle. They allow you to sport a fake suntan that looks just as great as the real thing. Doing them also makes the gorgeous color generated by Sun Labs Dark Sunsation tanner stick around for about a week, gradually disappearing from view.

Your skin has to be prepared for the application of Sun Labs Dark Sunsation. Exfoliate it while in the shower to remove excessive amounts of dead cells. DHA in the indoor tanning product darkens that layer of dead cells sitting on the top of your skin. To make the chemical produce a realistic and even golden brown color, it has to be applied on a smooth surface.

Using Sun Labs Dark Sunsation lotion on unshaven skin is a bad idea. The solution is likely to gather around hair strands and this may lead to an outcome with visible blotches. On the same day that you are intending to grab that bottle of Sun Labs Dark Sunsation, shave the skin. This also provides additional exfoliating benefit for an impressive fake suntan.

See to it that the skin is completely dry before you start applying Sun Labs Dark Sunsation lotion. Refrain from using any cosmetic product that coats the skin with a film of oil or any other chemical. Otherwise, DHA may not be able to complete its job. However, do apply some moisturizer on the knees and elbows beforehand to prevent it from ending up darker than the rest of your body. Wear plastic or latex gloves to save the palms of your hands from absorbing DHA and ending up stained.

Allow Sun Labs Dark Sunsation lotion to completely dry before putting back your clothes on. Refrain from showering for the next 6 to 8 hours. Also, steer clear of any physical activity that can cause you to perspire during the given time period.

The moment the effect of your Sun Labs Dark Sunsation becomes evident, regularly apply your everyday moisturizing lotion. This helps make the fabulous golden brown color last for about a week. When stepping foot outside the home particularly during daytime, be sure to use sunscreen with a rating of not less than SPF 15 to save your skin from UV radiation.

When the color produced by Sun Labs Dark Sunsation starts to fade, exfoliate in the shower once more. This helps even out the tan as it gradually lightens. Because the tanner is gentle on the skin, you may reapply it to intensify the fake suntan.
