Another online scam is being investigated by authorities in Juniata County.  State Police say an unnamed individual in Fermanagh Township sent funds via Western Union to an individual met online to allow the person access to the country.  Once funds were received, the individual threatened the victim with the release of pornographic photographs if more funds were not sent.  The investigation will continue.

 

A call blocking specialist has launched a free e-toolkit to help prevent veterans becoming the victims of telephone fraud.  The toolkit is being launched to tie in with National Veterans and Military Families Month, which honors the contributions made by American service members.  Recent research has revealed that veterans are twice as likely to be targeted by scams.  CPR Call Blocker has created a downloadable resource to empower veterans when handling telephone calls.  The kit provides veterans with a ‘download and print’ resource that can be kept by their home telephones for reference. There are also tips about who to contact should they feel that they have been a victim of a scam and ways of preventing these types of calls on a permanent basis.  CPR Call Blockers are available from www.callblockerusa.com.
