A Thanksgiving Day one-vehicle crash in Perry County sent a Shermans Dale woman to the hospital.  According to State Police, 39-year-old Alicia White was driving a Dodge Ram on Youngs Church Road in Carroll Township just after 8:00 am Thursday when she became distracted by her dog.  The passenger side tire went off the roadway into a ditch, causing White to lose control and strike a tree.  She was taken to Holy Spirit Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

 

The Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities and State Police advise Christmas shoppers – whether online or in stores – to be especially vigilant in protecting their financial information. Consumers should be watchful for fraudulent card skimming devices, which can be attached to ATM machines, gas pumps, or other payment processing machines in retail stores, and to exercise good cyber-security practices when shopping online.  Some safety tips include checking your bank and credit card statements frequently to watch for fraudulent activity. Consider using a credit card not linked to your bank account to avoid compromising your PIN or cash flow.  Consumers are encouraged to report suspected card skimmers to police, as well as the institution or store manager.  If you believe you have been victimized by card skimmers, contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection unit at 1-800-441-2555.
