Have you heard about the delicate operation that the FBI just ran. It was an undercover operation, supplying encrypted devices to drug organizations, Money launderers and the Mafia. And they netted quite a few arrests and quite a bit of cocaine, ABC News Crime and Terrorism analyst Former FBI agent Brad Garrett is on our KOMO news line. This is an incredible case. Brad what? What stands out to you? Well, this is another great example of working from the inside out instead of the outside in. So what I mean is the FBI were able to basically flip a cyber criminals that got into trouble. And he had the bone affinities with all these criminal organizations and individuals around the world. So they created this device, which looks like a cell phone that you can't dial in. You can't dial out. Uh, it's got this very encrypted app on it. And so what? He was able to distribute several 1000 of these quote unquote found around the world. And then for a really significant period of time, the FBI were able to monitor what bad guys were saying to each other, what photographs they were sending to each other. Uh, you know, drug drops moving to drugs, money laundering people that we're going to be killed. Um and he goes on and on and on. And you know it was only because he had the ability To basically listen to an encrypted device because obviously they supplied it and had all the encryption or decryption tools. Um, But, yes, it's quite a case. Do you think it's likely to stifle this activity? Or is this this one little skirmish in in an ongoing war? It absolutely will not slow it down. If in anything, it will tighten up cyber criminals even more about how they move their money around about who they trust. You know, this is a typical example of There'll be a lot of paranoia among cybercriminals that this actually happened. Um, so they'll change their ways, Just like organized crime has changed their ways over the last 100 years. And we'll adapt and keep going. But I will tell you Without inside, working out, in other words, if you have some ability to get inside these organizations through decryption Is really the way to go because it's really difficult to decrypt stuff that you're just trying to figure out. I mean, Think about how long it took them to decrypt that cell phone in San Bernardino. When with with a big mass shootout back, I think in 2015, and so it's things like that is something to think about.

Trade group: Retail sales should grow 6.5% to 8.2% this year

"Nation's largest retail trade group, is forecasting strong sales growth this year as more folks received the Corona virus vaccine. NPR's Alina Selya reports. The National Retail Federation predicts that American shoppers this year will spend more than $4.3 trillion. The group says retail sales will grow between 6.5% and 8.2%. The highest rates seen since 2004 that cover spending at stores but also on cars, gas at restaurants and bars. And the forecast is rooted in the idea that more people will start spending the money. They've been stashing away while cooped up during the pandemic. This year's growth would also build on the huge jump and spending that happened in 2020 despite the global crisis, when people spent heavily on home renovation, sports equipment, groceries and lots of online shopping.

"Great to be here with you. It's good to be on and you know, with the craziness of urine, which normally was parties and festivals. Things and all this stuff, and then now we've got over reactive counties that are shutting things down, even though we're not at the limits that, the governor said, And so it's been a little crazy, and it's gonna be a very different Christmas time and probably could have been potentially one of the most exciting New Year's ever because they're yours. Everybody wants to get rid of right, actually on now we're not even supposed to be with more than one household thin our own household so Yeah, that kind of kills a lot of parties and celebrations, so we'll have to see how that really plays out and how people really act versus what they're told to do. Exactly. Yeah, it's pretty frustrated and stuff so Yeah, well, hopefully hopefully, things will be improving with vaccines come wrong, And you know things can get better. But, yeah, I think we still got a ways to go. Unfortunately, Yeah, I was at the mall the other day thinking, Gosh, you look at these pretty things to wear to a party and there's no parties this year like I'm also sad. No parties, no office parties. Air like you said Even New Year's parties and boy, are we gonna be ready to celebrate the new year? Are you guys in the holiday spirit? Even so? Well, of course, trying, but definitely a little little stretch. Okay, So I guess the National Retail Federation is saying we're still gonna have a strong finish to 2020. Even in spite of the pandemic, and I wanted to know about your class. Are they carrying on as usual with their typical holiday spending? Well, telling your financial advisor that you're spending a lot of money is almost something that never happened. I'm just trying to get them to tell the truth of what they actually spend is always a tough situation. But Yeah, maybe, for most of my clients sit down someone here in high tech and all that stuff that you know, it really hasn't affected them. You know a lot of this downturn in and actually, amazingly, of course, it's helped a lot of them because a lot of them have record high stock prices and so forth. So They're actually, you know, socking a bunch of money away and trying to protect it from loss and and really trying to be a little bit smarter about it, cause a lot of people can see that this rally is going to end at some point, you know, Once things come back down, and you know the love these things have run up may not fees up so high, so a lot of them are trying to really protect things from the downside, but In terms of the spending. They don't typically always tell me that so funny. All right. Well, we certainly have had some challenges this past year, so I thought I'd be interesting to hear from you what you think Some of the biggest lessons are we could have learned from this past year. Well, of course. I mean, some of the stuff is just old tried and true stuff that you should have already always known. But sometimes until something happens, you don't really pay attention to it right. So obviously having emergency fund and That's that's always a tough number. Tow tol really kind of crass. I mean, I have some people that really have some emotional kind of issues around. You know. How much should they have? Because right now, cash makes you nothing. I mean, You know, if you're at a good online savings account, you might get a half a percent, right? I mean that zoo not much money and so having a huge emergency fund does not make sense. But it's really bad when you have none, because then, of course, your alternatives credit card debt, so Yeah, Really? That should be about a 3 to 6 months. Spending balance, not income, but spending. So in other words, if you know, maybe you're making your household incomes 10,000 month, But you're only spending five. Well, then that means you should be basing those numbers off that five k number, not the 10. Is, obviously if you're laid off or something's happening, you're not going to funding your 41 k. You're not gonna be your funding the SPP, or you know other other benefits that you may be doing that right now with that. And then, obviously also, you know how much you how much are you spending on things, right? I mean, what is that? That numbers you know, things have gotten tighter than maybe you should be, You know, cutting back, So look at Look at how much you actually spending Because I find for most of my clients. They kind of spend what they make. And you know, I don't believe there's anybody who has extra money. That's kind of like some sort of thing like a unicorn, right? But, you know, we think it might exist. But we've never really seen it and s O so many people. Just spend whatever they have, and if they make more, they just spend more and you know, so there's no the plot sense. I'll say I'll say more. When I have extra money. Nobody ever has extra money. There's always something you could be doing with it right. So So making sure you pay yourself first. That's really the big thing. And then, of course, really looking long term and making sure that all the decisions all the reactions that you're making. Is for a permanent type of reason. Right and I find the number One problem that people have is is if you don't have a plan is really tough to know how to think long term. You know, So if you're trying to, uh, you know, lose a set number of pounds. Then you can look at how much your exercise how much you're doing right and be tracking it. But if you just say Want to lose weight. What does that mean? Right? How much do you track and how much do you know There's no defined number. So if you have a plan, saying that I'm going to save this much and be doing this, we're gonna have so much of retirement. It's really easy to see if you're on tracker off track. But without that, and if it's just us, Hey, someday I wanna retire. That's not a plan, right? That's just a dream. So yeah, that's when you really want to have that income plan or written income plan. So that way you can see how your future is growing and how things were doing to make sure you're not going to run out of money and so forth. And you know, so that's why that part is so critical. And then also, you won't see what risk of level of your investments are. This is you know, 20 twenties been insane year in terms of the market. Just be a lip shine all over the place..
