Watch Out For The Latest Scam!
A new scam has arrived — just in time for the holidays. This particular scam begins with a text message from the USPS that claims a package will be returned unless you provide missing address details. A link is given for the address details, but do NOT click on the link.
To dispose of the scam message:
If you believe there may be a lost package, please call the local Post Office instead of responding to a message like this. Thank you to Villager Deborah Brody for pointing out this latest scam.
• If it’s a text message, block the sender, then delete the message.
• If it’s an email, flag it as phishing, which should delete the message automatically. If it doesn't, delete the message manually and empty your trash folder too.
Take Care With Space Heaters!
With temperatures dropping, you may want to plug in your space heater. The National Fire Protection Association reports that space heaters caused nearly half of home heating fires from 2011 to 2015, and were responsible for 85 percent of home heating fire deaths.
- Place your space heater on a level, flat surface.
- Inspect the heater for cracked or broken plugs, and loose connections. If the heater is damaged, do not use it.
- Plug your space heater directly into a wall outlet. Do not use with a power strip or extension cord, as these can overheat and cause a fire.
- Locate space heaters out of high traffic areas and doorways where they may pose a tripping hazard.
- Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet away from your space heater, and keep pets and children away from the heater.
- Never leave a space heater unattended. Turn it off when you leave the room.
- Never use a space heater while you sleep.
