Exporters Can Declare Their Goods Free Online
When American exporters export their goods, the United States Government no longer requires "paperwork." Not to mislead you, exporters or their agents must still complete and deliver a "Shipper's Export Declaration," commonly called "SED," for every commodity valued over $2500. But now, it's all on the Internet. It's easy and it's free!
Adopt a Wild Horse or Burro Online
How did a visit to a web site suddenly transform a mother of four into an angel of mercy for homeless horses and burros? "Seeing those faces..." she explains. "I felt sorry for the ones no one else had bid on. I adopted Humphrey, a 22 year-old horse. Who else in their right mind would have wanted him?" The next Internet adoption auction begins on January 12, 2000.
Fighting ID Theft
How can someone steal your identity? By co-opting your name, Social Security number, credit card number, or some other piece of your personal information for their own use. In short, identity theft occurs when someone appropriates your personal information without your knowledge to commit fraud or theft. The Federal Trade Commission's site tells you how to minimize your risk and what to do if you're a victim.
