Senior Citizen Bulletin for January 2015
SENIOR CITIZEN ALL POINTS BULLETIN

Hello,

Well it’s a cold night tonight.  My thermometer says 5 below out!!!  When it’s this cold it’s best to stay indoors.  If you have to go out make sure your car is ready for the cold and always have an emergency kit in the trunk.  It’s always good to be prepared.  

I talk about scams where people call your house and try to get money, personal info, or bank account info.  There is a new scam that hits your at your computer.  It goes by several names some of them are criptolocker, criptoblocker, ECT.  This is a virus that encrypts your data.  In simple terms it locks your computer so you cannot access anything.  You will get a warning that will tell you that you computer has been encrypted and that you got to pay a ransom to get your data back.  From what I heard only 1 out of 4 people who pay the ransom get their data back.  To avoid this problem, never open attachments from someone you don’t know and keep your virus protection up to date.  

I would just like to remind everyone that Superintendant Tully of the Highway Department is still making buckets of sand available to seniors who cannot get out and get sand themselves.  

Give myself or Ruth Tully a call to have the sand delivered.  

David does ask that if you can provide your own bucket it would be appreciated.

Finally, Chief Rich of the Dunstable Fire Department has taken over passing out the file of life’s.  If you need one see him.  

I do still have the refills if you only need that.

Stay safe,

Darrell Gilmore,
Sergeant DPD
