    There is still skepticism of online banking because of security and the skepticism is legitimate. Some banks have failed to keep their customer information safe. There are instances where massive debit card numbers have been stolen making one wonder how secure the online banking really is. There are also issues of key-loggers and malicious software that literally steal the information you type into your computer making it easy to break into your account and do things with your money that you never approved of. However, there is a technology that could help solve most of these issues on the user side.

    There is a device called an authenticator that could be an extra layer of protection for the customer. How this works is when logging into the bank account the customer would need their login, their password, and the number from the authenticator device. This small device that can go on a keychain has a button pressed to give a number. That number is only valid for a minute. That becomes like the second password in order to log in. After a minute that number is never valid again.

    This means that if someone wants to log into your account they have to literally steal this device from you and know your name and password to that account. This gives you physical control over access to your online account. If this is utilized by you, then it gives your banking account just one extra step of protection that you will need. Then spyware and key-loggers, even if getting part of the login, won’t be able to get into your account since you hold the physical piece.

    The costs of these devices are fairly cheap most of the time coming well under $15 to the end user. If you want to bank online but are still skeptical of security, shop around for a bank that is serious about customer safety and offer authenticators for online banking.

    One of my favorite things to buy and sell is vintage tobacco pipes. I’ve found it to be very easy to visit different flea markets, yard sales, auctions, and thrift stores and find great deals on vintage pipes.

    Your key to success is education. You have to know what you are looking for. Like any type of collectible item, the most important thing to look for is (1) maker’s name, (2) rarity, (3) age, and (4) condition. We will cover each of these in more detail below:

    1) Maker’s Name: Some of the more popular tobacco pipe manufacturers include Dunhill, Anne Julie, Teddy Knudsen, Tiffany and more. You also want to keep any eye open for meerschaum pipes. Typically, pipes made by an individual are more desirable than pipes that are mass produced.

    2) Rarity: Obviously, the rare pipes are worth more than the common pipes.

    3) Age: Typically, older pipes are worth more than newer pipes. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but this is the norm.

    4) Condition: Condition is everything. People want the oldest, best and rarest, and they want it in mint condition.

    If you are just getting started buying and selling pipes, the best thing you can do is visit your local libarary or bookstore, and get a few reference books. This will help you familiarize with the different types and makes of pipes. Another good option is to visit eBay and search the completed listings to find out which pipes bring the most money.

    You will be pleasantly surprised to find that some pipes sell for several thousand dollars or more. And many other vintage pipes sell for several hundred dollars.

    Once you’ve reviewed your reference books and eBay, you should start visiting local auctions, yard sales and flea markets and search for pipes. If you see a pipe that catches your eye, check it out.

    My general rule of thumb is I never spend more than $5-$10 for a pipe that I don’t know it’s value. When I evaluate a pipe, I use the four criteria mentioned above. Typically, I trust my intuition. If I think a pipe has good potential, I buy it.

    In conclusion, buying and selling pipes is a great way to make some extra money. You can get started by studying the different types of pipes and pipe makers. Once you learn the ropes, you can visit flea markets, yard sales and auctions and search for treasure. You will be surprised at what you can find.

    Are you in need of a personal loan to help you out with some emergency or project? Do you want to be able to go to your bank for this loan because you know the rate will be better and you already know the people there? There is much to say about personal bank loans and you need to know what to expect before you walk in and apply. Here is what you will be getting into.

    First, you need to understand that your bank will be harder to get a loan from than many non conventional lenders. The bank will want you to have good credit, collateral, or a few other things. If you have a good relationship with them, a vehicle or piece of property to use as collateral, or an investment account to use as collateral, then they might be willing to give you a personal bank loan even if you do not have the best of credit.

    However, you are better off if you have good creit because if you have good credit you may not even need collateral. Many banks will lend based on income and credit only and will not require any collateral for smaller loans that are under $10,000. Of course, the amount you will be able to get all depends on your income and your credit.

    Second, you need to understand that if you have bad credit your chances of getting a personal loan from your bank are not very good. They will be doing you a huge favor if they even consider extending you a loan. With a good amount of collateral and a co signer you might be able to get a loan from your bank with a co signer, but that is still stretching is quite a bit.

    Last, understand that if you are not able to get personal bank loans, there are still options. You can apply online for a personal loan through someone that is considered a non conventional lender. If you are really desperate and you need the money for an emergency you can always get a cash advance or payday loan without even having your credit checked.
