If you left a survey for burglars to fill out the next time they ransacked your home, how would they rate the experience?
How did you learn about us?Rumors about rural houses having little Security.Location: 5/10Location was alright. Around 500 meters to the nearest neighbor. But unfortunately an hour away from any sizable population (20,000 plus being a sizable population.)Transportation: 10/10Transportation was top notch. The owners of the property never lock their Minivan or Pick-up truck. The keys are always left in the vehicles. Both are moderately new and somewhat non-descriptive so a perfect getaway vehicle. Not only did they provide vehicles they also kept trailers in a easily accessible unlocked shed.Security: 9/10Security was lax. There is a gate but it isn’t locked. Doors aren’t locked unless the house is left unoccupied for more than 2 weeks. No cameras made it really easy. They did have a dog which made it a bit of a pain. He was easily disposed of as he was just a Labrador Retriever puppy. Owners are very light sleepers don’t rob if they’re around.Products: 10/10No place has better selection. The place had 3 DSLR cameras, 3 Workstation class desktops, 3 tablets, 4 drones, 6 Smartphones, 9 external monitors and 11 laptops. All of the items were of premium design and value (aka Apples or equivalent). The freezers and shelves were well stocked the rest of the property was much more appealing though.They also had a shop on the property with many tools ranging from mechanics to carpentry to fabrication. The tools were of medium quality. The shop also stored 2 ATV for added convenience. The shop wasn’t the jackpot though.The shed was the real treasure trove. This drive in shed held heavy equipment all with the keys in the ignition for easy accessibility. The average equipment’s value was around $100,000, with a combined value of around $1.5 Million. Unfortunately the heavy equipment is hard to transport and the market is too small to get away with it.The products all seemed gift wrapped for the taking. Everything was easy to find as it looked organized.Laws in the area: 10/10Owners aren’t allowed to use lethal force or even have a premeditated weapon for self defense. A robber in the area once accidentally locked himself into the garage place he was robbing. As the owners did not come home for a couple days he resorted to eating dog food. The end result was the owners were charged for negligence of the robber. Laws almost protect us. Owners are not supposed to attack us in any way or they may be charged.Would you recommend to your friends?If everybody is gone a resounding yes. Unfortunately that’s not very often as the house is occupied by Home-schooling kids, a Writer and the owner is a farmer who mostly works on property. Also if you intend to use brute force, bring a weapon. All the occupants are big. The average height is around 6 feet.BTW bring friends to help loot. It really requires a team of people to loot the place.
How long does mail take to come from California to Rochester, NY?
The US Postal service has become much less reliable in the last 20 years. (We ship around 3000–5000 packages a year through our various web business — goldenruletradingpost is our eBay store and we sell on several other platforms too. So, this is something we have a bit of experience with…). It can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks for a first class envelope or package to get across the country. If you want to make sure it makes it in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable price, Priority Mail Guaranteed is your best bet. 1–3 days guaranteed with several flat-rate options starting around $6 with tracking, delivery confirmation and an automatic $50 of Insurance. Priority Express will usually make it in 24 hours but starts at around $25.00
How does one decide whether to live in a smaller town outside Rochester NY, or in the city itself?
Depends on your priorities.The way Rochester is organized, you'll be much further away from a lot of city life or have to deal with traffic and parking to go to the fest in a town. The small towns have a festival or two, and most have other activities happening as well in their bars and rec halls. But, the city has something like 70 parades and different festivals throughout the year as well as scores of city wide advents like First Friday the monthly small business promotion day.If you value those sorts of things and want to be where the action is, live downtown. The worst day of traffic here is better than the best commute I ever had in DC, Philly, or NYC. And all the resources are here. The super wealthy buying up all the new condos and gentrifying center city are making sure of that.If you’d rather NOT have to deal with the humanity, live in a suburb or rural village. There are some incredible towns like Fairport and Honeoye Falls that are lovely, and barely 20 minutes from most of downtown.The fact that this is even a thinking point for you, makes me want to suggest neigh orhoods like the South Wedge, 19th Ward, and Lock 66 or Park Ave neighborhoods. They have the feel of more of a sizeable town with the access of a city.
How safe is Singapore? Is it true that it has a low crime rate? How does it compare to US cities or Japanese cities? Is the crime rate increasing with immigration and overpopulation?
Having lived in Singapore for 21 years of my life since I was born, I can tell you the degree of safeness in Singapore.Electronic DevicesIf you have came to ANY Singapore coffee shop or restaurant or cafe, 80% of people leaves their devices along with their wallet on the table while dining or chatting in a cafe and etc. I'm not kidding. This is surprisingly common.EatingWe have food courts that have individual stalls selling different cuisines and we have to order it ourselves and bring it to our respective table. However there is one issue. Seats. Thus Singaporean came out with a brilliant idea call "Seat Chopping"(meaning to leave one of your belonging/bags etc. on the table while you go get food ) people leave bags with laptops/iPad there literally. Yes. It's true.Going Home Late Trust me. I do not care whether you go home at 1am/2am/3am/4am. It is very safe. Our houses are high rise buildings that are very close to one another. Imagine a scream in the middle of the night would literally alarm everyone in the building. And just to let you know MOST(90%) houses in Singapore have Surveillance Camera regardless in Lift Lobbies, Elevators and corridors. LightsSingapore has lamps literally every 5 meters. So basically whole coverage of Singapore(Most) is bright. There are no dark areas AT ALL. And best thing? It get fixed within a few hours if it happens to fails. PoliceI lived in an area called Woodlands. It's pretty small area (probably about 14km) and we have freaking about 3 neighborhood police station around. It applies to other areas too. Meaning if somebody calls the police, it will definitely arrives in less than 5 minutes. Not to mention there are patrol police cars actively patrolling. I once left my house door unlocked for 4 hours while I go shopping and I came back home exactly the same way it is. I once left my bag on the table while eating alone to go to the washroom. Nothing was missing. Singapore is definitely a Safe place to live in. But the weather is definitely one of the worst. Summer 365 days. Imagine that.
Is it a crime to fill out an application in someone else's name for a credit card?
Do you have power of attorney?Are you their legal guardian?Are you doing it for the purpose of committing fraud?Has the other person given their consent?Consider the following:Forgery is only forgery if the person whose name was forged says it’s forgery.If you endorse the back of a check with your spouse’s name and your spouse is totally ok with that. You haven’t committed forgery.
Should I rule out going to USC because of the crime rate in the area?
You should absolutely not rule it out for a multitude of reasons.USC Department of Public Safety is incredibly reliable and involved. They even send out an email to every student whenever a crime takes place.USC goes out of their way to keep students safe. They have their own version of campus Uber which is free to get people home safely at night. They use LiveSafe which is an app for students to help keep them safe. It allows a way to call DPS immediately or easily report a crime in progress. This app also allows you to let friends and family know when you leave, where you are going, and what route you are taking to help keep you safe.The campus is very safe and by 2017 there will be a whole new part of campus called The Village which allows another safe campus that serves all your needs.USC is a wonderful school and as long as you pay attention and are smart about your decisions you will be fine. If you are going to be one of those students who goes walking around off campus in South Central alone while staring at your phone at 2am then you should probably choose another school.
