Tuesday morning online trends 9/17

(KFVS) -

Here are the top trending headlines from Tuesday morning.

A Tennessee businessman has a message for young men: pull up your pants!

Insurance agent Fred Davis shelled out $6,000 for a billboard that says "Show your mind. Not your behind."

Davis believes men who sag their pants portray an image of crime and poor education.

"If you want to be upwardly mobile, you can't present that image to people who are qualified to make a decision about you," Davis says.

Davis is also a civil rights activist who marched alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

He says they fought for future generations to move up a little higher, not for "thuggish mentality."

USA Today features an interactive map on their front page.

It's a way to explore the data on mass shootings in the U.S. Since 2006.

This coming just a day after the mass shooting at the Washington D.C. Navy Yard.

The map shows a variety of scenarios that can be changed to reflect the data available.

The caption shows that a mass killing is defined by the FBI as four or more victims, not including the killer.

Those have occurred at the rate of about one every two weeks in America since 2006.

There was panic outside of the White House last night as the sound of fireworks was mistaken for gunshots.

A man was led away by officers outside of the White House shortly after the incident.

This happened Monday evening just hours after the deadly shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.

A new survey finds that eight in ten people are frequently hit with potentially fraudulent offers.

One review found fraud costs Americans more than $50 billion a year.

The Finra Investor Education Foundation surveyed 2,000 Americans to try and find out why so many people fall victim.

It was found that many Americans can't identify the red flags of fraud.

More than four out of ten thought an annual return of 110-percent sounded appealing, though that's a highly improbably promise.

Americans, 65-years-old and older are the most likely to be targets of fraud and men more likely than women.

The survey found income level tended to impact how people responded to scam offers but maybe not how you'd think.

People making less than $25,000 dollars a year were less likely to be interested in risky pitches than people who made more money.

Those who made $100,000 or more were the most likely to find those pitches appealing.
