Phone Scam

We have a new scam that is showing up in the area. Just last night a resident received a phone call from 207-532-5442 and Caller-Id showed it was from the State of Maine. The person on the phone told the resident that he had won money. Our good resident did the right thing and hung up. The number is local but technology is now able to allow scammers to have any phone number show up on the Caller-Id. This is called “Spoofing”.

I have provided a couple of links with good information regarding scams. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. I urge you not to engage with scammers and to just hang up on them. These calls can be repored to the Maine Attorny General’s Office, Consumer Fraud Division and also to the FCC.

National Drug Take Back Day

Just a reminder that this Saturday, April 29th, is Drug Take Back Day from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We will have boxes set up in the lobby. Please bring in any expired or unwanted medications. Liquids must be in their sealed containers. All sharps can be placed in our sharps kiosk and must be in puncture proof containers. Laundry soap bottles will work. We cannot take sharps unless they are secured this way.

Volunteers from Adopt-a-Block will be here helping out. We look forward to seeing you all.
