Beware of Flooded Cars for Sale
Thank goodness Hurricane Ida is behind us, but she left a path of destruction. In fact, Ida left $95 billion worth of damage in Louisiana and surrounding states and much of that destruction was caused to cars.
Unfortunately, many of those water damaged vehicles will be cleaned up and sold to unsuspecting consumers around the nation.
Today we're talking to Patrick Olsen from Carfax. Carfax has access to around 20 billion records for vehicles, and they collect the information from around 100,000 different sources to determine if a car has been in an accident, if the odometer has been rolled back, or in this case, if the car you’re thinking of buying has been waterlogged from a hurricane.
It is a form of internet bribery that has victimized countless people. The elements are intriguing. They involve romance, photos, lies, and eventually money. A lot of money.
Today, Gary Harper is talking to Nate Warfield a former internet hacker who eventually used his skills to help people and companies to protect themselves while online.
Warfield is here to tell us about something called "sextortion" and what you need to do to protect yourself against it.
FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Assistance
Nearly 600,000 Americans have lost their lives to Covid-19. It's terrible news, and many loved ones paid out of pocket for those funerals.
But why? Particularly when the federal government has set aside money to pay for those services.
On this episode, Gary Harper is talking to Ed Michael Reggie, CEO of Future Factory and a known consumer advocate and expert in the funeral industry. He explains details of the program and says many people just don't know about it and what is needed to qualify.
The Supermarket Guru
In this episode, Gary Harper is talking about something that affects nearly everyone across the nation and that’s rising food prices.
To break things down, Gary talks to Phil Lempert who’s known as the "Supermarket Guru." Lempert is an author, speaker and one of the leading experts in the nation when it comes to following food trends.
Rent is increasing, not only in Phoenix, but all across the nation. On this episode, Gary Harper is joined by Jeff Andrews with Zumper, an apartment rental website that monitors rental trends.
Andrews says national rent went up 12% since this time last year, and there's no indication of going down. Andrews explores the reasons behind the jump.
Gary is then joined by 3 On Your Side producer Warren Trent to discuss home rental scams they’ve covered and tips for consumers to avoid from being ripped off.
Zumper National Rent Report
In this edition of the 3 On Your Side Podcast, Consumer Investigator Gary Harper talks about something that's being referred to as the "Great Resignation."
