THEY USED A JULY BRIEFING AT THE PENTAGON TO ESSENTIALLY HOP-SCOTCH WORLD TROUBLE SPOTS, EXPLAINING AMERICA'S TRADITIONAL PRESENCE AROUND THE WORLD. TRUMP HAS ON MANY OCCASIONS QUIZZED AIDES ABOUT THE LARGE U.S. FOOTPRINT IN WORLD AFFAIRS.

IT SAID BEIJING "WILL NEVER ACCEPT THE 'RESPONSIBILITY' IMPOSED BY THE U.S." CHINA ALSO SAID MILITARY THREATS MADE BY NORTH KOREA AND THE U.S. ARE COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.

ONCE AGAIN, THE CASPER POLICE DEPARTMENT AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE CAUTIONING THE COMMUNITY ABOUT VARIOUS SCAMS MAKING THE ROUNDS.

THESE ARE THE RECENTLY REPORTED SCAMS STARTING WITH THE GRANDPARENT SCAM.

A CON ARTIST CALLS THE VICTIM AND POSES AS A RELATIVE IN DISTRESS OR SOMEONE CLAIMING TO REPRESENT THE RELATIVE AND THEN ASKS TO WIRE FUNDS TO HELP THE RELATIVE.

THEN THERE'S A SCAM IN WHICH CRIMINALS POSE AS THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE AGENTS AND CALL OR DEMAND IMMEDIATE PAYMENT.

HOWEVER, IRS WON'T DO THAT WITHOUT FIRST SENDING YOU A BILL IN THE MAIL.

THE ARREST WARRANT SCAM HAS BEEN A POPULAR ONE, TOO.

SCAMMERS CREATE A FAKE CALLER ID TO SEEM LIKE THEY'RE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WHO SAY THERE IS A WARRANT OUT FOR YOUR ARREST, BUT CAN AVOID CRIMINAL CHARGES BY PAYING OVER THE PHONE.

FINALLY, THERE ARE THE SWEEPSTAKES SCAMMERS ARE EXPERTS AT CONVINCING YOU THAT YOU HAVE WON A PRIZE AND NEED TO PAY THEM TO RECEIVE IT.

THEY OFTEN DISGUISE THEMSELVES AS LEGITIMATE COMPANIES THAT REALLY DO OFFER HUGE PRIZES.

OF COURSE, IF THE CALLER SAYS THEY HAVE A PRIZE, YOU'D THINK THEY'D BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE COST OF GETTING IT TO YOU.

SO IF YOU GET A CALL LIKE THIS, SAY NO THANKS OR JUST HANG UP, AND REPORT IT TO YOUR LOCAL POLICE OR SHERIFF'S OFFICE, AS WELL AS THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION.
