Consumer Alert: Be aware of Caller ID spoofing

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Jennifer Donelan - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 19:44:57 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) Frank, whose last name he prefers not to share since his identity has already been compromised recently started getting phone calls from angry people who complained about receiving hang-up calls from his number.

People thought Frank was making the calls from his Fairfax County home.

The calls, dozens of them, were apparently placed with fake Caller ID.

In the last few years, phone spoofing has become easy as several websites have sprung up to provide spoofing services.

For instance, spooftel.com sells a virtual "calling card" that provides a certain number of minutes of talk time. The user dials a toll-free number, then keys in the destination number and the Caller ID number to display. The service also provides optional voice scrambling, to make the caller sound like someone of the opposite sex.

Caller ID spoofing appears to be legal, though many of its uses are not. The Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009 basically prohibits the use of telephone spoofing for the purpose of defrauding someone or causing them harm.

In Frank's case, the calls spoofed from his phone appear to be "some sort of prank or joke." Nonetheless, he says it's left him feeling "violated and helpless."

"It's kind of creepy I hope it doesn't go any farther than this," he concludes.

If you believe you've been a victim of Caller ID spoofing, you can call your phone carrier. Some carriers track these type of complaints.

Man charged in Graham case to appear in court

WDBJ 7 National News - - Thu, 30 Oct 2014 16:43:38 GMT

The man charged with abducting University of Virginia student Hannah Graham -- whose body was later found on an abandoned farm -- is scheduled to face a judge Friday in a separate case in Fairfax, Virginia.

Jesse Matthew will appear for the brief procedural hearing via video from the jail where he's being held in Charlottesville, Virginia, officials say. In that separate case -- in which a young woman was sexually assaulted -- Matthew faces charges of abduction, sexual assault, and attempted capital murder.

He may also face more serious counts beyond the abduction charge in the Graham case, in light of the discovery of the 18-year-old's body Oct. 18.

But analysts say he may be tried first in Fairfax, because authorities there have had more time to build their case, and they have both DNA evidence as well as a potential eyewitness.

Woman was dragged, sexually assaulted

In the Fairfax case, authorities say that on Sept. 24, 2005, a young woman returning from a grocery store was grabbed from behind by an assailant and sexually assaulted.

"We saw her purse on the front sidewalk," said neighbor Stacey Simkins. "He had already dragged her behind our units to the dark pool area."

Simkins did not see the suspect's face, but she immediately called police.

"The offender was scared away by a passerby," the FBI said in a statement, "but the victim got a good look at him."

The victim helped authorities draw up a composite sketch, and now she could potentially be called as a witness at trial.

"I'd rather not say where she is, but she is cooperative," Fairfax County Prosecutor Ray Morrogh said last week.

Evidence may be challenged

In addition to the victim's potential testimony, the FBI also says it has DNA evidence in the case.

But DNA evidence can be challenged in court, said HLN legal analyst and defense attorney Joey Jackson, as can the testimony of the victim.

"When someone is undergoing a trauma, as in this case the victim was, you have to wonder whether that traumatic experience could make what she saw reliable," Jackson said. "On the other hand, the prosecution will argue that it's emblazoned in her memory."

Still, testimony and forensics may not be the only evidence in the Fairfax case. Now that investigators have the name of a possible suspect, Jackson said, they are likely chasing dozens of new threads, searching for evidence. For example, they would be looking for cell phone records, texts, surveillance video, or toll booth receipts that might link Matthew to the crime scene, or any friends or relatives or business associates that might place him in Fairfax.

Matthew's attorney asks to represent in both cases

Matthew's attorney in Charlottesville, James Camblos, declined to comment on the charges or the evidence against him in either city. It is not yet certain whether Camblos will represent Matthew in the Fairfax case, although he has asked the judge for permission to do so. The judge is expected to address the question at Friday's hearing.

It is unclear which trial would proceed first: the one in Fairfax, or in Charlottesville.

The Fairfax case is further along, according to former prosecutor Steve Deaton. "Fairfax has already been in a circuit court, with a grand jury," he said.

"We're sort of ready to go," Fairfax prosecutor Morrogh told CNN this week. "But I can go first, or whenever."

In Charlottesville, on the other hand, prosecutors last Friday said only that they are still weighing which charges they will file in the Hannah Graham case.

And that case could be more difficult to make, according to defense attorney Scott Goodman, since there may be no witnesses who could testify. It is also unclear what forensic evidence may exist in the case, aside from the surveillance video from the night of Graham's disappearance -- on Sept. 13 -- that shows Matthew, 32, apparently following her in Charlottesville's Downtown Mall area.

"In Charlottesville, the case is much more complicated than Fairfax, because the Charlottesville case relies almost wholly on circumstantial evidence," Goodman said.

Connection to another case?

There is also a third case to which Matthew may be linked: the murder of Morgan Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student who was last seen hitchhiking along U.S. 29 outside of Charlottesville in October 2009. She was found dead on a nearby farm the following January. The FBI has said the case is linked by DNA to the Fairfax case. But according to Goodman, that case might be the most difficult to prove, because it is unclear whether there is any evidence placing the suspect and the victim together.

And as Deaton points out, it could be that none of the three cases results in a conviction against Matthew.

"I think it's important to remember now that this man is presumed innocent, and he has not been convicted of anything," he said.

Matthew was taken into custody Sept. 24 while camping on a beach in Galveston, Texas, some 1,300 miles from Charlottesville. He is the only person detained in connection with Graham's disappearance, and was charged with abduction with the intent to defile.

Fairfax Co. Fire winter coat giveaway keeps local kids warm

Virginia WJLA - Mike Conneen - Tue, 28 Oct 2014 18:21:24 EST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: With sunny, 80-degree weather, it might not feel like it, but winter is on its way. And thanks to local firefighters, children across Fairfax County will be warm in coming days as temperatures start to drop.

Firefighters and volunteers helped distribute 3,000 winter coats Tuesday to kids from more than 70 different schools and organizations across the county who might otherwise only get hand-me-downs or go without a coat. The coats were donated by the organization Operation Warm.

Fairfax County school counselor Kemba Ephraim said, &ldquo:You should see the smiles. They go modeling their coats to their friends.&rdquo:

Fire Captain Willie Bailey feels a connection to these kids. One of seven children, he grew up in public housing in Alexandria.

&ldquo:I didn't get a new coat until I was in high school,&rdquo: he said.

Bailey launched this coat giveaway a decade ago, one of several events held by his charity Firefighters and Friends to the Rescue.

&ldquo:And a lot of times [these children] think they have to give [their coats] back because they've never seen anything new before. That's why we have a name tag inside the coat so they can write their name and the tag says, &lsquo:This coat belongs to me,&rsquo:&rdquo: he said.

Since he started this event, it has quadrupled in size. Even in one of Washington, D.C.'s wealthier suburbs, he and co-organizer Lisa Marie Kelly said there is still plenty of poverty.

&ldquo:We do have a lot of need here in the county and to be able to help our community is worth a lot to the people who are here helping,&rdquo: Kelly said.

For the first time at this year's event, kids also went home with brand new shoes. They each received two pairs: one pair that fits them and a larger pair they can grow into.

&ldquo:Shoes are so important because children need athletic shoes for their activities and to be physically active,&rdquo: said Focus North America Executive Director Nicholas Chakos, whose organization donated the shoes.

He added, &ldquo:Shoes are a very expensive item that we go through very, very quickly. Children grow rapidly. Shoes wear out.&rdquo:

ABC7/NewsChannel 8 Town Hall panelists agree: Ebola is a big concern, but let's not overreact

ABC 7 WJLA News - Rachel Schaerr, Skip Wood - Mon, 27 Oct 2014 20:50:01 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) – So, expert panelists, what say you about the Ebola virus?

This.

That.

And the other.

Slightly differing opinions, yes, but a general agreement during NewsChannel 8’s social-media town hall meeting that the killing disease wreaking havoc on western Africa nations most certainly is a concern for the United States but that red-white-and-blue denizens should take a deep breath and relax.

On the panel for “Ebola in America” were Dr. Scott Betzelos, the chief medical officer for Inova Fairfax (Va.) hospitals, U.S. congressman Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), who held last Friday’s congressional hearing on Ebola, Nelson Sabatini, former Maryland Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene, Dr. Ben Carson, former director or pediatric neurology at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Rajani Ward of National Nurses United.

One of the more anticipated solicitations of opinion was reserved for Carson, a world-renowned neurosurgeon who also has made a splash as a decidedly conservative black man whose name often is mentioned as a potential 2016 presidential candidate.

But for the most part, no partisan spin on this night.

Carson wondered out loud about the initial response from the White House, and  indicated he believes some sort of travel bans would be prudent.

“We must prepare for the worst-case scenario,” he said, adding that continued flights from western Africa to the U.S. poses a problem.

Connolly disagreed.

A travel ban, he said, “just sends everybody underground.”

There was a social-media question from a college student, who wondered what would happen if the virus found its way to a large campus.

“That’s a game changer,” Betzelos said.

True, Connolly said, while also indicating such a thing is more a product of frenzy than reality.

From Carson: “The real focus needs to be in Africa.”

Former Va. Marine surprises prosecution at trial, admits strangling wife

ABC 7 WJLA News - Kendis Gibson - Mon, 27 Oct 2014 16:29:10 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) - A former Woodbridge Marine pleaded guilty Monday to strangling his wife and then dumping her body in a river -- a surprise move that came as his trial was set to begin in Fairfax County.

Caleb Crew admitted to the first-degree murder of his 31-year-old wife Andrea, whose body was found by a boater in the Occoquan River last August. He will now be sentenced on Jan. 9.

"I was expecting not guilty and to have a trial, and the judge asked him three times and so it then became a plea," said Chief Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Casey Lingan, who indicated he had no idea that Crew - who served in the marine Corps in Afghanistan - was going to change his plea to guilty.

Lingan said no plea deal was offered and he was prepared for a six-day trial with a stack of evidence that included Crew's taped confession to detectives and witness accounts of a troubled marriage.

Police and prosecutors said Crew strangled his wife just hours after he had appeared in court on domestic violence charges that were dropped and left the courthouse holding hands with his wife: she was strangled with the tie he wore to that court hearing.
