Sextortion Emails on the Rise

It’s been happening for years, but now that disturbing sextortion email scam is being seen more frequently. If you have not heard about it, a sextortion scam is when you receive an email claiming that they have installed malware on to your computer and with their software magic they have video evidence of you during your private moments on private websites. Please do not fall for this. This is a blackmail/extortion scam.

These scammers are now more clever, and are learning how to bypass email spam filters. Because these emails are embarrassing, people tend to not report these emails due to fear of being put in awkward situations. These scams are becoming more popular with scammers because people just pay the blackmail to avoid awkward confrontation. Key words you should look out for in your email subject line should be: “under attack” or “you are my victim”. If they are threatening in anyway, please do not be alarmed, they are scammers and making you scared is their tactic.

Please remember, if you get a threatening email addressed to you with your old password or phone number attached, please do not fall for it. These scammers get that information due to the numerous data breaches that happen daily on the internet. If you do receive one of these emails, please report it as spam right away and then go ahead and delete it.

Make A Quick Call Before You Dig

If you plan to begin any project that involves digging — such as building a patio, putting up a fence, or planting bushes and trees — remember to call 811 before work begins.

Every digging job requires a call to 811 to have underground utility lines marked. In some cases, lines are buried close to the surface and could easily be damaged by even shallow digging, resulting in service interruptions to your neighborhood.

When you call, simply tell the operator where you're planning to dig and what type of work you'll be doing. The affected local utilities will send a locator to your property, free of charge. Then you'll know what's below and be able to dig safely. As one of your local service providers, Hartelco thanks you in advance for your cooperation!
