BBB - David Smitherman with the Better Business Bureau joined us to explain how to protect yourself when you move. Summer kicks off the busiest time of year for Americans changing residencies. It also means unlicensed movers and dishonest scammers are waiting to take advantage of unwary consumers. In 2012, BBB received over 1.4 million moving-related inquiries and more than 9,300 complaints against movers. Complaints included damaged or missing items, big price increases over originally-quoted estimates, late deliveries, and goods being "held hostage" for additional (disputed) payment. The Better Business Bureau joins with the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) to provide important tips on how to avoid scams and find a trustworthy moving company: research the company thoroughly http://www.protectyourmove.gov, get at least three written in-home estimates, know your rights, and consider accepting full value protection. To check out a mover near you, and for more consumer information you can trust, visit bbb.org, and AMSA's moving.org websites.

THE INTERNSHIP - Janice talked with Dylan O'Brien from "The Internship." In "The Internship" Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation's most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention. For more information on "The Internship", visit http://www.theinternshipmovie.com/.  Dylan O'Brien grew up in New Jersey before moving with his family to California. Before getting bit by the acting bug, Dylan planned to attend film school and become a cinematographer, just like his father. But once he landed the role of Scott's (Tyler Posey) goofy sidekick Stiles on Teen Wolf, he decided to put off school. Dylan has also developed an extensive YouTube following for a series of comic online shorts which he directed, produced and starred in. For more on Dylan, visit http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3729721/. "The Internship" opens nationwide on Friday. It is rated PG13..
