FCPD released this photo Friday of suspects in several skimming incidents at local ATMs. FCPD photo

why are all these incidents Sun Trust Banks I wonder.
PatC July 20, 2014 at 06:37 pm
It's amazing to me that these criminals are able to tamper with the bank's equipment without theRead More banks having eyes on these people. They say we need to be careful? The banks need to be able to catch them in the act on the spot when they do this. Why aren't there more tamper resistant ATMs? Why is the technology still so archaic? It's time we chipped the cards like Europe has been doing for years.
Michelle Moldenhauer July 20, 2014 at 07:22 pm
I so agree. I'm surprised the technology hasn't been developed to recognize when an ATM has beenRead More tampered with. Come on banks! Let's focus on this to avoid the billions you're losing from financial card thefts and then charging it back to the customers!!

So when a women post of a nude so called "revenge porn" pic of a man, it will be dismissedRead More as a mistake of clicking the wrong button and nothing happens....

Did the girlfriend knowingly pose in the photograph?
Laurie McCabe July 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm
The law stipulates that it does NOT MATTER how the photograph is obtained once it is being used toRead More cause emotional distress. In other words, a piece-of-shit man is a piece-of-shit man.

Kinda makes you wonder just how many people have knock off there kids and pets this way.

This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

How is this going to reduce the number of crashes? Call it what it is a money grab thanks to theRead More phony republicans who voted for the biggest tax increase in Virginia history, you know Tag Greason and the good old boys!
Bill Zaccagnino July 11, 2014 at 01:56 pm
The article mentions 600 crashes involving these vehicles. What is the statistic within the 600Read More that clarifies who is at fault in the crashes? Too often 4-wheel vehicles drive carelessly and don't take 2-wheel motor vehicles into account or treat them as if they have less right to be on the road than 4-wheel motor vehicles. I ride a motorcycle and I know I need to be extra careful when doing so. The unfortunate truth is that whether I am at fault or not, I will be the loser in a crash.
Motorists receiving email noting unpaid tolls, but it's a hoax. Provided.

Anybody can put those names in the from field. Check the headers of the email. That's a better wayRead More to verify. Bottom line, people should never respond to emails claiming non-payment. Always call to verify for sure.

How much did this attacker weigh? With so many people out and about, the weight is very importantRead More feature. If he was very heavy, he would stand out. If he was skinny he wouldn't.

I have talked to some locals and some think it is the newly arrived Homeless man that hangs aroundRead More the shopping center peeking into cars. He also hangs around 7 11 in the early mornings on west broad. It could also be the teen ager from McLean that is missing. I hope they catch this man and lock him away for a long time.
Laurie July 2, 2014 at 08:15 am
Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!
Marie July 2, 2014 at 08:49 am
This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.

Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

With Obama gathering our phone info and listening to our conversations, why can't the governmentRead More find these people? Also - if people are here LEGALLY, they wouldn't have to worry about deportation threats.

The IRS is an abusive, criminal beast; it needs to be abolished, period. Replace it with a flat tax.

It's called rear view mirrors and windows. I don't buy the story. I think criminal charges should beRead More in order.
Sandra Bishop June 20, 2014 at 11:31 am
I could see putting the child in the car, while it's running, for a/c, while unloading packages inRead More the trunk...and then returning the cart to the cart parking area. That would take a few minutes, not negligent or criminal. That said, was the child in a car seat? Shouldn't be able to reach the power window switch while in a car seat. Also should lock the power windows from the driver's panel, so kids in back can't open them.
