The FOX5 Surprise Squad met Margaret Payne over the summer during a surprise mission at Albertsons. When offered her surprise, Payne wanted to pay it forward instead, saying she doesn’t have a family around for all of those groceries. Fast forward to Thanksgiving week and the Surprise Squad sought out “Ms. Margaret” to make sure she has a family this holiday. Thanks to our Surprise Squad partners United Nissan, America First Credit Union and Albertsons/Vons.
It pays to be nice! A sweet homecoming proposal at Shadow Ridge High School gets the attention of the FOX5 Surprise Squad … and OMG! what a memorable night it turns out to be. Daniel Rivas, 17, has Down Syndrome and dreamed of going to the dance but was turned down. So Kylie Fronius, a 10th grader steps up. Her simple act of kindness prompts a night of surprises no one could have imagined!
An aunt writes the FOX5 Surprise Squad about her 11-year-old nephew who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and now desperately awaiting a bone marrow match. You won’t believe how the Squad turned this little warrior into an MVP!

The holidays are nearly here and while many of our thoughts turn to giving, online thieves are focused on how much they can take, with a host of schemes to rob us of our information, money & seasonal good cheer.
Here are a few tips to avoid becoming a victim during this time of year:
∙ Mobile SMS fraud — Sent via text, these messages contain dangerous links encouraging you to update or install an app, infecting your device with malware.
∙ Shopping schemes — Too-good-to-be true offers and steep discounts on must-have items may originate from phony sites. You could also encounter fake contests on social media designed to get your personal information or proliferate spyware.
∙ Traveling blues — If you’re planning a trip to visit family or going on a winter getaway, scammers know it. They’re hoping to catch you by offering you fraudulent travel deals or sending spam. Be on the lookout for these tactics.
∙ Dangerous greetings — When you get an electronic card, be careful before you click. Some of these contain viruses.
∙ Doing our part — Be sure to go here for updates regarding how we are constantly working to safeguard your resources.
