At least they got 5 years out of it! "Warehouse 13" is preparing for what will be its fifth and final season and producers have just six episodes to wrap it up."Warehouse 13" premiered in 2009 to modest ratings numbers and still brings in a strong audience.

While most people have learned to avoid popular internet scams, the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has determined that almost 300,000 Americans in 2012 did not. Their ignorance cost them more than $500 million, collectively. Complaints streamed in from 289,874 people, of whom 114,908 (about 40 percent) reported having lost money to an online scam. The 20-39 demographic represented 39 percent of victims, while those ages 40-50 represented 43 percent. Although California placed first in gullible Internet denizens, the East Coast fared the worst overall. New York, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia all fell well within the top 10 states with the most complainants. IC3 reported seven main types of email scams: auto fraud, FBI impersonation, intimidation/extortion, hit man, scareware/ransomware, real estate fraud and romance.(technewsdaily.com)
