Important Alert!

Hello Everyone.

An Important Alert:

A community elder received a phone call this morning from someone who claimed to work for Shaw Cable and that he was scheduled to come to the house to sweep her computer later that day at 3:00pm.

A family member of the Elder phoned Shaw to inquire about the situation and Shaw replied that they had no one scheduled to come out and they do not offer such services.

So it obvious this was a con artist who was hoping to get information from her computer to see if she does online banking or to simply enter the home to rob the Elder.

So if any of your family members use Shaw as your internet provider, please tell them that Shaw does not offer these services.

We have informed the police, but there is nothing they can do until someone is physically on the property.

Please pass this message to your family and friends.
