In order to help you save more, earn more and live more abundantly on today’s show I’ll be covering:

How to Deal with Data Breaches and Identity Scams
It’s almost become routine news to hear about data breaches and identity theft scams. But this reality should urge us toward more vigilance, not less. With the frequency of incidents, you need to know how to deal with data breaches and identity scams.
Information on one of the latest data breaches was made public on May 24. A vulnerability in the website of First American Financial Corporation, a leading mortgage title company, was uncovered. This means approximately 885 million mortgage records were open to theft. Entire records needed for such coverage include social security numbers, addresses, bank accounts, driver’s licenses, tax records and more. It’s unknown yet whether or not any information was actually stolen.
It’s important to note that when data breaches occur, the public typically isn’t made aware immediately. So, for the consumer, you’re already in a reaction situation.
Advice about how to deal with data breaches:
Prepping for the Future with Trust and Will Estate Planning
Here on SavingsAngel, I’d like to discuss a simplified estate planning service I have discovered: Trust & Will Estate Planning Services. It is never too early to think about the future.
With the aid of Trust & Will, you can secure the future of your family and preserve their peace of mind. Protection for your family and assets is priceless. Rest in the comfort that whatever tomorrow brings, your family is spoken for.
I’ve heard too many stories about custody battles and squabbles over inheritance to wish that on a family that is wrestling with great loss. I know that I personally have discussed guardianship with my wife and children and other close family members. It is never too early to prepare for your loved ones’ futures.
If all that is preventing you from setting your affairs in order is the excessive legal jargon and time-consuming process, Trust & Will is the Estate Planning service for you. The service is accessible in all 50 states for guardianships, wills, and trusts. It takes a mere 10 minutes to finish online. Guardianships start at $39, Wills at $69, and Trusts at $399.

How to Prevent Summer Savings Slumps
Dwarfed only by holiday splurging, summer spending can really add up. Between events, vacations, back to school shopping and lazy summer days, even savvy shoppers can get a bit lax.
