The Factor is hearing some high schools may be getting tough on students who are joking and claiming to have Ebola.  A school administrator, who didn’t want to be identified, said some students are claiming to have the deadly virus and then they’ll spit on another student.  That administrator says he has vowed to suspend any student on his Houston campus caught making the threat.  He says his concern is more about the student spitting on a classmate than the claims of having Ebola.  That administrator says it has happened at other local schools but he will not tolerate it on his campus.

Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniel and the FBI in Houston urged southeast Texas residents not to be duped by con men who pose as police officers and demand that callers pay fines for purportedly missing jury service.

 

A local resident was recently tricked out of $250 by such a phone scam. The scam died down after it started occurring late last year, but it has recently resurfaced in Houston and dozens of others states, prompting Daniel and the FBI to warn the public.

 

Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniel said he requested the FBI’s help in investigating the crimes because “these criminals are giving jury service a black eye. Innocent, hard-working people have been tricked into giving these con artists money. They need to be behind bars.”

FBI Special Agent in Charge Perrye K. Turner, head of the FBI’s Houston office, said one of the best ways to curb the scam is to inform the public not to fall prey to it.

 

“We’ve seen variations of this scam hit unsuspecting residents across the country,” Special Agent Turner said. “These scammers are using fear and intimidation to pressure victims into paying them money, and they often move from state to state very quickly to avoid detection.  Educating yourself on the latest scams is the best defense, and remember – law enforcement authorities will never demand you pay a fine by phone.”

 

People should report scammers’ calls to the District Clerk’s jury service operation at 713-755-6392 and to your local police or the FBI.  Tips to the FBI also may be submitted online at https://tips.fbi.gov.  All tipsters may remain anonymous.

GSM Arena: The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is about to make its international debut and already the company is issuing the first software update for the device. The firmware number of the latest update is XXU1ANJ4 and at 36MB it is quite small.

That’s because it’s quite specific and aims at improving battery performance as well as overall stability. In our Galaxy Note 4 review we found out that the phone’s battery does excellently with an endurance rating of 87 hours. With the latest update though, you should expect the Galaxy Note 4 to do even better than that.

Samsung is already distributing the update to all Galaxy Note 4 units and expect it to become instantly available as soon as the phone launches in its respective markets. In the UK, Samsung recently announced the phone will be delayed until October 17and it will cost £575 off-contract.

If you already sport a Galaxy Note 4, then head to the Settings > About Phone > Software update menu and get the latest firmware version for the phone.
