Scam watch! Scam season is here and you need to know

Hello everyone and we at the business desk are introducing a new feature to
help you become more aware of those nasty scams making the rounds.
This is going to be a weekly feature and we hope that you take advantage of
our info as it will help you to stay out of the way of scams and scammers!
It’s all about scam alerts!

You need to remember that scams come in the following formats:
As emails, as phone calls both recorded and via a live caller, and o yes!
It can even show up at your door and in your mailbox.

+++++++++++++++

Before giving you the latest scams making the rounds; we have some do nots
to share with you.
Do not respond to emails that look strange to you.
Do not download attachments from unknown senders.
Do not share your username and password to your online banking and any other
online payments facilities with anyone.
Do not give out any banking or personal details on the phone to unknown
callers.
Do not pay any attention to threats from automated phone recordings or from
live persons with regard to your credit card or that you owe money to any
revenue agency.
Do not entertain any offers either via email or by phone from senders and
callers offering incredible service packages as they may pertain to cable
and tv services, prizes that you have won, or any sort of any type of
service package.
Do not answer the door to unknown callers.
Take extra caution to make sure that the details of your credit cards and
debit cards are fully protected when you make payments at restaurants or at
stores, pharmacies, and elsewhere.

Scams of the week –

1. A phone call telling you that you have won a prize courtesy of American
Express.
If you do not have an Amex card then you know that this indeed a scam and
even if you do; do not fall for this trap.
Simply hang up the phone.

2. Invoices from strange sounding companies.
They are being sent via email and if you make the mistake to download the
invoice then you have just given permision to an unknown hacker to enter and
destroy your system.

3. An email from Food for the Hungry telling you that you can now download
your tax receipts online.
This is a hoax as the scammer is simply waiting for you to enter your
details and then they take over.

Remember now; scam season as we call it is in full swing. It usually lasts
from January until end of April.

Until next week.

The power of monopoly

Greetings! I’m Christian Robicheau, assistant editor at
http://www.sterlingcreations.ca and I just cannot believe how cold February
has been thus far. Brr!!!
Well, I have a very interesting editorial to share with you this week; from
our president Donna J. Jodhan and today she focuses her attention on the
power of monopoly.
I encourage you now to read Donna’s editorial.
Have yourself a great weekend.

+++++++++++++++

The power of monopoly
By Donna J. Jodhan

As I sit here writing this editorial and try as hard as I may, I can’t seem
to find any other words to describe my thoughts today. Some of us have a
hard time dealing with monopolies while there are others who really do not
pay too much attention.
Today I am going to take a few minutes to single out a monopoly entity which
I feel should be singled out for their continuing attitude of disrespect,
discourtesy, and condescension towards Canadians with disabilities.
Especially so towards Canadians who are blind, deaf/blind, and vision
impaired.

Yes, I am referring to none other than the Greater Toronto Airport
Authority; an entity who over the past too many years continues to treat
persons with disabilities like luggage rather than as Human Beings. Here we
have an entity that downright refuses to mend their ways choosing instead to
say that they are not responsible for what goes on in their own backyard and
blaming it on their contractors.

Sure, they have been taken to court several times over their irresponsible
behaviour but time and time again they have been allowed to get away with
it. Just imagine this!

The Greater Toronto Airport Authority has been given a deadline to carry out
certain processes by the Canadian Transportation Agency but instead of
following instructions what does this renegade entity do? They accuse the
CTA of not being fair and end by saying that it is not their responsibility
as to what has happened let alone being responsible for fixing it.

In the same matter, they are mandated to enter into discussions with other
stakeholders to develop ways to be more assistive to Canadians who are blind
and vision impaired but what do they do? They ignore the entire request
choosing instead to puff out their chests and say what a great Airport they
are.

What we have here is an entity with very deep pockets. One that uses their
deep pockets to buy and bully their way out of corners. An entity that
believes that because of its monopoly; this being that they are Canada’s
largest Airport located in Canada’s largest City, they can do whatever they
want and get away with it.

They are being allowed to get away with things. They continue to violate
and trample upon the rights of Canadians with disabilities, seniors, and the
most vulnerable. They have no respect for these groups and they treat them
as luggage rather than as their rapidly growing bread and butter consumer.

So what to do? I urge readers not to give up. Do as I do and continue to
fight for your rights. Push hard for this present Government to do
something before it is too late. Let’s work together to stop these bullies
and renegades!

Just my two cents for today!

I’m Donna J. Jodhan wishing you a terrific weekend.
