Happy Summer to all of our readers. I hope that you are having a chance to gather with family and friends whether with a family reunion or simply a trip to the zoo or local library with your grandchildren. While having fun remember to also keep safety and security in mind.

While working in the back yard keep your back door locked at all times.

 

It only takes a minute for thieves to Rob you of precious heirlooms, jewelry and silver. There have been many reports of these types of robberies. Do not let anyone into your home unless you have scheduled an appointment. Reputable companies do not send workers out to your home without an appointment. If you are swimming with family make sure someone has their eyes on each other at all times. Do not fall for roof and driveway repair scams. Talk with friends and family and only proceed with a written estimate. Check the company out with the Better Business Bureau or check with your local senior center. Finally, the scam artists continue to call even during the outdoors season. I recently received a call from a company acting as if they were associated with the National Institute on Aging who had provided alert systems for them to pass on to seniors for free. The representative did not even know the number for the company saying that he was just an order taker and that this was a system worth over $400 that I would be receiving for free along with a "discount drug card". Well these scam artists selected the wrong person. I am reporting them to the Michigan Attorney General and the National Institute on Aging. As I like to say: "If it sounds too good to be true, it is!" So avoid schemes, scams and swindles. Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
