OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

IRS SCAMS - Beware of Strange Callers.

PLEASE ALERT EVERYONE YOU KNOW.  I JUST GOT ONE OF THESE CALLS.  SHE ASKED ME TO CALL 646-543-6910 ASAP OR RISK BEING ARRESTED.  See attached article from newspaper. Everyone is vulnerable. They will ask money to be wired or transferred. Or they will ask for personal information such as Social Security Number, address, etc.

Just got another call. Caller ask my husband to return call to this number.  312-442-0103. The caller who answer identified himself as an IRS agent working on non-payment of income tax.

Thanks for posting this B.

When I get that crap on the phone I go to the net and type in the number and the SCAM sites come up.

This is why I don't answer my home phone anymore. I always let it go to messages first. Same with my cell...I have ringtones set for people I know and then a general one for acquaintances but caller ID's for them. Anybody else gets the general ringtone (I use the 007 theme LOL). If I don't recognize the number and they don't leave a message then they go in the Blocked Callers section ("ennhh, wrong answer").

We had several similar calls like this within a weeks time. These did not know our social but gave an ID number for themselves as an IRS agent.

It can freak you out with how they speak and all the effort they go too to make it sound real.

We just recently acquired identity theft protection. It isn't just about your Credit cards folks but think about your identity being stolen. I have encountered someone with this and it is a constant battle for them, so sad :-(
