B4 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL T MAIL FRAUD Five ways to lose your money through the mail By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Congratulations! You may be the winner — of a bogus vacation, useless product or illegal chain letter. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service tallied the 416,216 complaints it has received this year and reports five scams seem to be the most popular ways to fleece Americans. The "Five Biggest Lies told to Consumers" are: 1. "You are a guaranteed winner" of a valuable prize. This ploy asks the so-called winner to pay for chemically inert "vitamins," cheap home security systems or contribute to a fake charity, before getting a booby prize. 2. "This chain letter Is legal." After you pay for copying and mailing letters, this is one of life's biggest losers. 3. "Stuff envelopes at home and earn big money." These scams ask victims to send money for a "plan." Here it is: Send letters asking people to send money for a plan. 4. "Your humble assistance is highly solicited in transferring millions of dollars, available from the Nigerian National Petroleum Company, to share with your good self. All we need is your bank account number." 5. "You've been selected to receive a fabulous vacation." All you have to do is pay a membership fee or handling charge. But the vacation can turn into a nightmare of scheduling and shabby hotels.

Toronto, "the safest city in North America," headed its list of the five best international cities. Fortune for the first time went beyond evaluating cities on business criteria. With help from the Arthur Andersen consulting firm, it examined quality of life issues: crime, school quality, availability of culture, the comforts of the suburbs and their accessibility. "Life in a shady 'burb' is not so wonderful if you have to spend hours in traffic getting there," it said in dropping New York off the list entirely. The Associated Press Seattle, its skyline shown here, was named by Fortune magazine as the top U.S. city for working and enjoying family life. Among things checked were the number of doctors, state and local taxes, and costs of a martini, real estate and movie tickets. Fortune also interviewed executives and economic development experts. The list, in the Nov. 11 issue, puts Denver second to Seattle, followed by Philadelphia, Minneapolis and Raleigh-Durham, N.C.

Earlier this year, Money magazine named Madison, Wis., as the best place to live, based on a poll of what readers value and on its own research on 300 metropolitan areas. It listed Seattle ninth. Fortune did not even mention Madison. Fortune extolled Seattle's summer sunlight from morning till 10:30 p.m. — plenty of light to enjoy kayaking even during the workweek. "You've gotta hate Seattle," the magazine reported tongue-in- cheek. "Kayaking, skiing, motm- tain-biking, plain-old biking, hiking, blading. Then comes the weekend and the end of this tedium called'work." The ranking also mentioned Seattle's clean air, availability of skilled labor, business structure and growth potential. The commute, though, ranked as average. Microsoft earnings increase By Bloomberg Business News REDMOND, Wash. — Microsoft Corp. reported a 23 percent increase in first-quarter earnings, beating analysts estimates, on strong sales of its Windows 95 and NT computer operating systems. . Net'income rose to $614 million, or 95 cents a share, from $499 million, or 78 cents, a year ago. Revenue rose 14 percent to $2.3 billion from $2.02 billion. Wall Street expected the software maker to have earnings of 90 cents a share, based on the average estimate of 24 analysts surveyed by IBES International. Sales during the quarter benefited from increasing demand for personal computers, which also boosted earnings at Intel Corp. and computer makers Compaq Computer Corp. and IBM.
