A local mother has a younger child and doesn’t feel they are ready for a more “tech style” watch so she purchased an air tag and bought this bracelet for it to go on. Great way to allow them to go out and play with friends with less worry. ***Important reminder *** due to the child being of younger age, this is to make sure they’re safe on their block playing. They won’t be heading down to the local Kwik Shop as they’re too little to travel that far, hence being too young for a “tech style” watch. We have a lot of traffic that comes through our town, so having the reassurance your child is safe in their yard or block is great. ... See MoreSee Less

We have used these when we travel!

I didn’t think they worked like that, like the find my app between cell phones using GPS. I’ve read they have a maximum distance of 30 meters outdoors, that’s a shorter distance than a city block, isn’t it? www.google.com/search?q=what+distance+can+your+phone.track+an+air+tag&rlz=1CDGOYI_enUS817US817&oq...

Living in a small community always shows the huge amount of support folks get when disaster strikes. The Unruh family is very appreciative of everything everyone has done at this time to assist with. With that, they do ask that if they aren’t there to accompany you, please do not go on the property. They are still currently waiting for the insurance adjusters to come out and they also don’t want anyone getting hurt. So please, unless the family has asked you to come to S Grove to assist them, please keep clear. Thank you all again for showing support during a difficult time. ... See MoreSee Less

Okay folks FB hackers and scammers are a real thing. These things use to show up here and there and now everywhere you turn, there they are! The pictures which will be used for an example come from a gal who’s grandpa got lost, she posted a few days ago a young boy was missing and now this young girl. They use the same story line. It’s great everyone wants to get the word out when people and pets are missing but you could be opening yourself up for issues down the road. So first things first. If someone is missing, your local law enforcement is usually involved and will share that info with you. Silver alerts and amber alerts can be found on KBI’s FB. Second, check out their profile. This gal gives no info. Has little to no friends and one photo. Nothing else. Please keep yourself safe and don’t let your info fall in the wrong hands. Stay cool out there! ... See MoreSee Less

Here's how it works: You see a Facebook post about a missing child, so you share it. More and more people share this post until it has a far reach. When this happens, the scammer edits the post to show a scam with phishing links. Typically, this will be a contest with a link to enter or a home for rent with a link to apply. Since you shared the original post, the edited one is on your profile, advertising the scam to your friends, and you may have no idea.

So how exactly do they scam you from a missing person alert? I’ve always wondered after seeing most are scams… any info? I’m probably naive enough to not figure it out myself!!! LOL

I recommend you reach out to “noahtoolz” On instagram the dude is literally a genius when it comes to fixing stuff like this and he does account recovery too.
