New Website Updates (this week):

  • The FTC warns of new tax scams you should be aware of and avoid.

  • John & Nancy Manion provide an update and thanks everyone for their support as they try to move on after the death of their daughter.

  • Yet more sad news. Long-time Lynnhaven resident, Hank Lubben, has passed.

  • Polly Sheehan is looking for a 2-bedroom rental for APRIL with a golf cart here in Lynnhaven or Belvedere. Can you help?

  • The Ringlands are adopting a cat, but they need a cat carrier to bring her home. Anyone have one that they can buy or borrow?

  • The Sheehans have a travel pet 4-in-1 "Snoozer" carrier for sale.

  • I hope you paid attention to the URGENT WARNING that scammers are now going to the Social Security Administration's website, setting up a "my Social Security" account under your name to steal your social security benefits. They explain how the scam works and warns that only 1 social security account can be opened per social security number. Set up your account NOW to beat the scammer setting one up under your name and social security number. With Equifax's (one of the three companies that keeps ALL your information, including your social security number) multiple data breaches, scammers may already have your Social Security number and information. You are playing Russian Roulette if you don't protect your benefits and bank accounts.

    Also, if preparing to make a move, read Moving Advice for Seniors and People with Disabilities. Both of these articles are recommended by Susan Williams.

  • New Vision for Independence, the only service in our area that supports those with low vision, has released its latest issue of its newsletter. Order a large print 2018 calendar, learn the facts about vision loss, learn which businesses were recommended and received the Axy Awards (most blind-friendly businesses). You can also make donations to this organization through the website, see what fundraising events are coming up, and read tips for preserving your vision.
    See the organization's new Training Workshops catalog. These workshops are a pre-requisite to any in-home visits.

  • Twice this week alone, I've been tricked into answering a phone call from a telemarketer. The number displayed on my phone (and our TV) was my doctor's office, then a local number I thought was a friend's number. They were neither. My husband says he gets them on his cell phone, as well. Just yesterday, I got a phone call from a woman who had a missed call that displayed my phone number on her phone. She was returning my call... the call I never made, to a person I don't know. This is called Spoofing. Click on the FCC's article, Spoofing and Caller ID, to read about the practice, when it is illegal, and what you can do. Wikipedia's Caller ID spoofing explanation is also very good and easy to understand.
