COVID-19 Update

I am attempting to keep you updated on happenings in the Village. While it's obvious that we are on "pause", families are still trying to exercise with children and walk their dogs. Some parents have suggested putting teddy bears in windows or displaying rainbows. The children will look for them and count them. Something fun! You remember fun?!!!! If you haven't stocked up on wine and other similar beverages, get to Red Gamay by tomorrow afternoon. The attached note is a notice from them informing us that they will close tomorrow night until the "pause" is over. The Better Bagel and Brownstone's will take phone orders. They are doing curbside pick-up and delivery. Check thebetterbagel.ny.com for more details. Park Ave. Grille Raimo's and Athena, as well as Amity Ales are also open for take-out. Others may be open too. Call first to check. As noted earlier, Vittorio's is closed. Please try to maintain social distancing when out. Remind teenagers that they are included in this. Dr. Kelly informs us that a student in our High School tested positive. We are a community that cares. This will pass....flowers are blooming, the days are longer. Find joy wherever and whenever you can. Stay well, safe and calm. Joan
 
 
 

SHOPPING SECURITY TIPS

Black Friday attracts crowds, and crowds attract scammers!  The bad guys are at it again, please take extra care when shopping online and on premise.   Here are tips to help you navigate the increasingly dangerous world of cyber security.  Especially this time of the year, don’t let the bad guys exploit your holiday spirit against you.  Stay alert and think before you click!

 

1. Never click on links in emails. If you want to shop at a site, enter that site address in your browser. There are thousands of fake sites that look almost identical to the real thing. Don't fall for evil-twin shopping sites.
2. Don't open attachments with special offers. It's a classic scam. The offer should be in the email and you should be able to see it right away.
3. Watch for malicious ads and popups. Do not click on ads that sound too good to be true, and ignore popups that might propose the "best deal ever".
4. Beware of e-skimmers. This is a new one. Do you know that bad guys sometimes skim your credit card at gas stations or ATMs? Well, there is a new flavor of that, the shopping website you order from might be infected with a "e-skimmer" and they steal your card data when you check out. You can prevent that by using PayPal or Amazon.
5. Use a credit card to buy stuff online if possible. NEVER use a debit card to make online purchases but use that debit card to take out cash only.
6. Do not shop over a public Wi-Fi. You simply do not know if it's secure and who is listening. Only shop using a secure, trusted network. If you have no other way to shop, use a VPN which encrypts your traffic.
7. Be very careful when you see a free offer during the holidays. There is an explosion of all kinds of survey fraud and gift card scams.
8. Do not re-use any of your passwords. Instead, use a password manager to create hard-tobreak passwords. Re-using any password is literally an invitation to get hacked.
9. Keep a close eye on your credit card and bank accounts. During this season, unexpected and strange charges might appear which could very well be the first sign your card or even your whole identity has been stolen. If you think you might have been scammed, stay calm and call your credit card company, nix that card and get a new one.
10. Be especially suspicious of gift card scams. They can be a perfect holiday gift, but gift card scams are skyrocketing. Only buy gift cards from trusted sources.
