Web Exclusive: Lebron James' return to Cleveland could generate millions for downtown

Posted: Updated:
(CBS/CNN) - Lebron James made headlines Friday when he announced he's returning to Cleveland.  Monday leaders in Cleveland held a news conference and put a price tag on what that will mean to the local economy.  They say increased ticket sales and more business near the entertainment district, could generate an additional 50 million dollars next year.

Home Depot is stocking something new on its shelves - 3 d printers.  The home improvement store announced a pilot program with maker bot, a 3-d printer manufacturer.  Home depot will sell the printers through its website and at 12 stores in California, Illinois and New York.  The price of the printers start at 800 dollars.  

A chain of truck stops will have to pay a $92 million dollar fine and more than $56 million dollars in restitution.  Pilot Flying J has admitted its direct sales group withheld discounts from hundreds of customers.  The criminal enforcement agreement also states employees put customers they deemed "too unsophisticated" to monitor pricing data into a higher-priced tier, occasionally referring to those customers as "customer b's."

You probably don't want to think about identity theft on vacation, but some parts of summer fun can leave anyone in the family susceptible to scams.  
Travel light -- leave social security cards and extra credit cards at home.  Also, make bank and credit card companies aware of travel plans.  
The federal trade commission warns hotel guests of  calls from the front desk wanting a credit card number.  And when your kids hit camp, the FTC urges parents to find out where personal information is stored, and who has access.
