>> earlier today we talked with the senior vice president and marketing officer for our new nhl team here in las vegas about why potential names are getting so much attention. (( nehme abouzeid/ senior vp and marketing officer hockey is a very unique sport and the name connotes the personality of a team. mr foley has said all along he wants our team to be tough and dependable and fight to the end and that's really what hockey's all about : it's a very fast paced sport you know they don't take time outs every few minutes- it's fast and now we're able to brand a brand new team in vegas that symbolizes the aspirations of the city and this name speaks to that- so i think that everyone's gonna like the name and logo tonight. the long awaited name and logo )) ((christianne klein)) long awaited is right... we've heard that knights will be in the title... chris mentioned a few options... and we wanted to know how you

this happened in the area hunters know as unit 262... which is popular for deer hunting. game wardens discovered several kill sites along the road. deer hunting is legal... but only after hunters are drawn for a tag. department of wildlife spokesman nick du-ay says poaching gives hunters a black eye. ((nick duhe/public affairs, ndow: "a lot of legal, legit sportsmen go out, they get their tags, and do everything by the book, so these guys have gone out and killed 8 different deer up at wheeler pass and have basically taken that opportunity from 8 people who are, couldh them.")) hunters go through a long process just to be able to hunt. they complete an education course... then get a generic hunting license. then... they apply for hunting tags for specific animals in specific geographic areas -- or units. the number available can change every year. then... it's a lottery process to be selected to hunt there. ((patrick walker)) investigators believe all 8 killings are related. they have not ruled out multiple

keep an eye on your bank statements. because if someone finds a way to access your accounts .. it could cost you... big time. consumer advocate michelle mortensen tells us how a cyber security threat almost cost a man his home.
5:13 pm
describes the cyber security fraud that plagued him for more than a year. in july 2015 ... someone gained access to his checking and home equity account numbers ... and created an online profile for both. something bill says he never would have done. ((bill: i like my paper statements )) ((michelle mortensen)) but all of a sudden bill's paper statements stopped... and because he didn't use the accounts .. he didn't think it was odd. that's why bill claims he never knew someone took 86 thousand dollars from his home equity line of credit. he discovered it 91 days after and immediately reported it to his bank expecting to be made whole. but wasn't. ((bill: it was kinda like getting punched in the stomach. )) ((michelle mortensen)) state and federal law says you the consumer must report fraud within 60 days to not be liable for the charges. bill reported it 31 days too late. he was on the hook for it all. ((bill: it makes you feel violated .. id' rather have someone break in through my door at least then you have a fighting chance. )) ((michelle mortensen)) bill did fight back as best he
5:14 pm
f-b-i ... but for months nothing happend and cases were close. so on a wing and a prayer he turned to 8 on your side ((bill:i was praying every day. )) ((michelle mortensen)) i did some digging in the fraud allegations . turns out all 86 thousand dollars were used by a man in california to buy bars of gold. but even with that evidence ... the bank told me repeatedly ... they weren't going to make any refunds. but then out-of-the-blue ... days after my conversations with the bank p-r team ... everything changed. stolen from him. ((bill: i owe nothing -- you owe nothing -- my line of credit is back where it was at -- you own this house again -- yes. )) ((michelle mortensen)) why the change of heart? the bank sent me this explanation ... saying it was a complicated case ... and they just chose to write it off. it wasn't much of an answer ... but it was an answer bill was very satisfied with. ((bill yes i'm thankfull ... thank god./// 41: it took a lot of pressure off )) he has his home. he has his money ... because he had 8 on his side
5:15 pm
((michelle mortensen)) so i bet your wondering ... how did this cyber security fraud even happen in the first place. there are 2 theorys. someone either got a copy of his statement .. and opened an online account.. or a hacker gained access to his computer and retrieved personal information. regardless ((paul joncich)) ((weather toss))
