Good Afternoon all,

You might want to consider adding a VPN to your phone, computer,I-Pad, or other device.  These are programs that allow an extra level of security.


Since installing these items on my I devices and computers, I have not received any scam e-mails or text messages.

Yes, I just received a text message that said Denise had a new post/update on Facebook. There was also a link that even started with fb. So as Denise stated, be careful about responding to anything in your emails, voicemails, and texts.

Hi Everyone,


This is just a note about fraud that is happening through text messages, emails, Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram. There are other platforms, but these are some of the most common. If you are receiving messages that look strange, or they look like they are coming from people that you know, but it doesn’t seem right, it most likely is not.


Do not respond to suspicious messages. Do not open any links that come from suspicious messages. To give you more peace of mind when you receive something using the name of someone you know, but it looks suspicious, call that individual to be sure.


Some of the most popular scams are receiving messages that are asking you for money, or asking you to purchase gift cards.


This is just a warning for everyone to stay alert as you go through your everyday tasks.


Thank you, and if you have any questions, please contact me personally.


Take care,

Denice Brown
