The Column - November 25, 2021

THANKSGIVING

The Credit Union will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 25th, and November 26th. Next Monday will end up being one of our busiest days of the year. Please take time to plan your financial needs accordingly.

TECH SUPPORT SCAMS

Here is how Tech Support Scams work. You get a call from someone who says he is a computer technician. He may say he is from a well-known company. He tells you there are viruses or other malware on your computer. He says you’ll have to give him remote access to your computer or buy new software to fix it.

But is the caller who he says he is? Judging by the complaints to the Federal Trade Commission, no. These scammers may try to sell you useless services, steal your credit card number, or get access to your computer to install malware, which could then let them see everything on your computer.

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO

Hang up. Never give control of your computer or your credit card information to someone who calls you out of the blue. Pass this information on to a friend. You may know these calls are fake, but chances are you know someone who doesn’t.

This information is provided by the Federal Trade Commission. Want to know more? Sign up for scam alerts at www.ftc.gov/subscribe. If you spot a scam, report it to the FTC online or by phone: www.ftc.gov/complaint or 1-877-382-4357.

I’M THANKFUL FOR
…the mess to clean up after a party because it means I am surrounded by friends
…the taxes I pay because it means that I am employed
…the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means that I have enough to eat
…a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home
…the spot that I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking
…all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech
…the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear
…my huge heating bill because it means I am warm
…the alarm that goes off in the early morning because it means I am alive
…the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are near by
…all of the heartaches, stresses, and frustrations my children add to my life because it means I was able to have them, and they are alive
…weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.

As we approach the holiday season and a new year, now is the time to see the beauty in what we take for granted every day and appreciate the little things that to some would mean so much.

From the staff and official family here at the Credit Union we wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all our members and their families. We are thankful to you, for giving us such a special place to work!
