On the Go With Joe Hutter

Enforcement Together (SALT)

By Joe Hutter

Like many of you I am a novice with my computer. Recently, on one cold morning, which has been most of them, I got an email from Mrs. Helen Blake. What surprised me was the email said that I was selected for a prize of a 2014 BMW 7 Series car. It also said a check for $500,000.00 was mine. My name was picked at random from their computerized email or ESS. I was one from a list of 250,000 email addresses from all the continents of the world. I was advised to keep this a secret until I got the money. One other thing they requested was all my personal information including my PIN (personal identification numbers) numbers that I use. Seniors are trusting and believe that information sent to them is true. DO NOT give out any information about yourself on your computer or over the phone. You can talk to any law enforcement officer today, and they can tell you about people they have taken reports from who lost money in scams such as the one mentioned above. If you receive something in the mail that looks official, check it out. Please do not send money to any one you do not know and do not share personal information.

S.A.L.T. (Seniors and Law enforcement Together meets the 4th Wednesday of every month at CASI. We’d love to have you join us.

Take care.
