Paul Vecker with the Bay County Sheriff
BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - With everyone out shopping this holiday season, trying to find that perfect gift for their loved ones, we want to remind you criminals are looking to take advantage of you and steal your personal information.
Paul Vecker with the Bay County Sheriff's Office offers some tips for you to remain vigilant this Christmas and protect yourself from holiday scams.
Vecker wants to remind you that 99 percent of the time, if you wire someone money you don't know, you will never get that money back.
He also says if you're asked to purchase a green dot card and then give the transaction number to a caller, they are then able to open an account and take your money.
Vecker says if someone calls you and says you've won money, or they ask you to wire them money, be wary!

Bay County Sheriff's Investigator, Paul Vecker, says stress is a huge contributor.
"Stress does cause domestic violence because people sometimes don't know where to turn to," Vecker says.
An average of three women and one man are killed each day in the United States by an intimate partner. Vecker says most of the time it could be avoided if people recognize the warning signs.
"People do not want to become involved in domestic violence type situations. Let's stay out of it, we don't need to get involved. The failure of that is the end result, unfortunately," says Vecker.

Though the teenager may have had a troubled youth, Bay County Sheriff's Sergeant Paul Vecker says you've got to look past it to solve the case.
"I've had people say, 'this young man might have been this or this.' that is irrelevant," says Vecker."We're talking about a 14-year old child whose life was taken."
Vecker is the law enforcement coordinator for Crimestoppers.He says the program works, but is different than just calling the police.
"Any good investigator/detective that when receive a phone call from someone they want to know who they're speaking with because it makes it more crucial," says Vecker."They can get back with that individual they have a phone number to get back with to get more specific information if they forgot to ask.When they call Crimestoppers, they receive a code number.We don't know who we're talking to."
Authorities are convinced that there is more to the story than someone is telling.
"Someone out there knows who committed this murder, we need that individual or individuals that have information specific information about this murder to call Crimestoppers," says Vecker."If they do not want to give their name, call Crimestoppers."
Crimestoppers has no way of tracking you down if you call in--all that's required is to leave the information you have.
And so far, some have been doing just that.
"We have received a lot of good information in reference to this murder thing we need are a few more pieces to close this case," says Vecker.
If you have the missing pieces, you could receive up to a $1000.
If you have any information on the Desmond Ray murder investigation, call Crimestoppers at 785-TIPS.Remember, you can remain anonymous.

"We've had some people that said they could not pay the $1,948, and the guy would come back on the phone and say, 'Hey listen we'll reduce it to $1,000 if you'll pay that particular fine," said Bay County Sheriff's Office Investigator, Paul Vecker.
Both Ford and Vecker say the majority of calls have been made through what they're calling "spoofed" numbers, meaning the numbers can't be traced back to their original source.

I'd also have women, and make sure, even men, not to take more than two credit cards inside of a store," said Paul Vecker, Criminal Investigator for the Bay County Sheriff's Office.
Vecker says another thing shoppers need to keep in mind.
"One of the main ones that need to be looked at very carefully by all the shoppers is, we try to tell everyone about the debit card. We want people not to use their debit card at fast food restaurants, at service stations," said Vecker.
The reason Sheriff's officials urge residents to not use debit cards at these locations, is a little tool called a skimmer.
"And what it does, is the person behind the counter can go in and take your card, and slidE it through the skimmer, and it gives them your information," said Vecker.
"Do not give your personal information over the phone, especially if you don't know who you are talking too," said Vecker.
