We recently published a series of 'Letters from Lesbos' on Lisbon Live which were written by Anita Lekic. Anita was in Lesbos volunteering with Doctors of the World at a reception camp. What she saw goes beyond anything that words can describe - although she did provide an excellent insight in the letters she sent to us here: http://blogs.angloinfo.com/lisbon-live/category/anita-lekic/letters-from-lesbos/ Anita has launched a crowdfunding project to buy the winter supplies that are so urgently needed, including tents, sleeping bags, emergency heat retaining blankets, rainwear, etc. for the refugees. Given the desperate need of the thousands of refugees arriving on the hardest hit island of Lesbos, many small NGOs and private individuals have jumped in to fill the gaps that major aid agencies are unable to fill. If you can help in any way please click on this link to find out more about the project and how to donate:https://www.generosity.com/emergencies-fundraising/there-is-no-greater-gift-than-kindness/x/12655808

Cyber Monday Shopping Scams Black Friday and Cyber Monday are consumer shopping events offering deals, bargains, and coupons. Cyber Monday occurs the Monday after the American Thanksgiving holiday, and has become “one of the biggest online shopping days of the year.” Consumers are expected to spend $105 billion in online shopping this year, and while Cyber Monday offers convenience, it is also a prime opportunity for malicious actors to commit cybercrimes including installing malware, stealing financial or credit card information, committing identity theft, and obtaining passwords, data, or other sensitive information. On Cyber Monday, follow these tips to protect yourself:   Type in retail website URLs directly,rather than clicking on advertisements Shop on reputable websites and use encrypted, secure HTTPS sites if entering credit card information Password protect all online retail acounts. Do not store credit card information on these sites. Use creit cards rather than debit cards to protect your accounts and to limit liability for potential fraudulent activity. Avoid spam or phising emails with "too good to be true" deals or offers. Be careful when shopping with mobile devices. Use reputable apps and avoid entering sensitive or financial information when using public Wi-Fi hotspots. Update antivirus software on home computers
