Last night I got the text message shown below. It is obviously fraud. They want you to click the link so they can: a) steal your data; b) install malware, ransomware, and/or a virus on your device; or c) sell you something.
How do I know it is fraud: First, I don’t have a Debit card with Chase. Second, none of the financial institutions I deal with send text messages with a 10 digit number. Third, there is a space before the semi-colon. Fourth, I get text messages and notifications every time a charge is made on my card.
How can you protect yourself? Never click on a link in a text message. If you are worried about your account, go directly to the website or log on to their app. Get notified when charges are made on your card. You maybe able to detect fraudulent charges before the financial institution.
There are so many designers in Tinkercad that never get recognized, so I decided that I would start recognizing them on my blog. Christopher Fet’s designs of trains and train tracks is impressive. But, Christopher Fet provides a great example of giving created to other designers when he uses pieces of their designs in his work. According to his profile, he only been using Tinkercad since July 2020. You can see Christopher Fet’s other designs on Tinkercad.

Their profile states: “My name is Lev Kulko, I just like designing and making ww2 things. it is what I do in my spare time really. I’m basically addicted to ww2. I also play War Thunder and Roblox” Military Sniper 007 does an awesome job recreating vehicles. Maybe one day they will design the larger versions.

The next building I designed for my Railroad Town is the Bank. With the Railroad Station, Saloon, Livery, and others a lot of commerce would be conducted in the town, the town would need a place for the residence to store their funds. I did not create a inside for the bank, because I wanted to print the design. See the 3d Bank in Tinkercad.

The designs shows that she is not only creative in creating the designs, but writing the story behind the design. Ella Zhong profile states:
Ｈｉ ｔｈｅｒｅ, and welcome to my profile! I’m a fifth grader, and I like reading books, messing with designs and also science. All my designs are made by me, no copies! (Unless I’m in a contest.)
If you look closely, every design has my hibiscus-based flower badge hidden in it! If you find it, tell me in the comments the approximate location, so others can find it too. For example: “The flower is hidden in a tapestry in your house.”

My goal for the year is to finish all the projects that I have started. This project I started in October. I was doing the my version of Inktober by drawing daily in my sketch pad during October. I drew the outline for this design and then I had to make a large drawing. This drawing was done on 16″x20″ art board using Sharpies, Faber Castell pens, and Sakura Metallic Pens. After the initial drawing and coloring, I know it needed something more. Months later, I settle on the “more” I wanted to add. It is based off Zentangle’s Crescent and variation of Paradox.
The next building I designed for my Railroad Town and the Saloon. I now had the Train Station were people disembark, these people needed some place to relax. I decided to design some of the interior of the Saloon. It needed tables and chairs, a bar, and a player piano.
The horse was export as a STL and imported into this design. I changed it color to black.
