THE SEASON FOR SCAMS!
This is supposed to be a season for joy and celebration, and it is. BUT - it is also one of several times of year that bring about any number of attempts to "SCAM" you out of your hard earned money with attempts to gain your personal information and attempt to gain access to computers and accounts. These attempts usually occur with phone calls perporting to be from your bank or credit card companies. Some are from those supposedly from technical support for Microsoft, Apple etc. Many pretend to be from various Veterans organizations especially the VA.
   
It is very importamt to be vigilant when these attempts occur. Please see theis page for what is happening and what you should do or not do...
