Hoax call at Kardashian home

Kim Kardashian condemned a 'dangerous' hoax call at the family home in LA

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials are looking for the person who falsely reported an emergency at the home of the Kardashians.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says it's too soon to tell whether the reality TV stars are the latest victims of so-called "swatting," a hoax intended to get officers, including specialized so-called SWAT teams, sent to a home.

Deputies who responded to the call on Friday found no crime had been committed.

Kim Kardashian on Twitter called the hoax "dangerous" and "not a joke".

Police last week responded to a false report of an armed robbery at Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills home. In December, a boy was arrested after police said he made calls that reported violence at the homes of Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher.

Trust your intuition about a career matter. If you're not happy in your current field, it's time to change direction. To get a foothold in another industry, you will have to get training. Enrol in a course that will give you a license or certificate. It may take months or even years to reach your goal, but there is no time like the present. Any goal worth attaining involves personal sacrifice. Stop waiting for a miracle to occur. Take charge of your destiny.More
