Via Citizen Report: "Scare Ware" Scam


Last month one of my clients received a call from someone (with an "Indian accent") who said "you are sending virus out of my computer, and they could help since they were a Microsoft Certified company". (They implied they were a Microsoft Company.) Let us log into your computer and we'll help you. (Also, have your credit card ready!)

This is the company:

$250 later, the computer was saved! Hallelujah! But then they called a few days later to extract another $50. This is when I was called. I told her to cancel the credit card transactions with this company and I removed all of their "scare-ware" from her computer.

Another client related a similar story to me last week, and they contacted me before doing anything. I said "don't do anything, it's a scam!"

Last Friday I'm at work and who calls...the same guy from India! This is where I confirmed the company and website behind this "scare-bully" tactic.

Bottom line, if you receive a call from someone who says you're infected, get their phone number to call them back, write it down, hangup, and throw the paper away!

Call or email me if you have any questions.

New CBP Analysis: What Would Proposition 38 Mean for California?

What Would Proposition 38 Mean for California? 
A new CBP analysis looks at Proposition 38, which will appear on the November 6 statewide ballot. Proposition 38 would temporarily increase personal income tax rates on most California taxpayers, with the higher rates in effect for 12 years beginning on January 1, 2013. The measure would raise an estimated $10 billion in 2013-14 -- the first full fiscal year of implementation -­- and could potentially raise larger amounts in following years. The new revenues would be allocated to K-12 education, early childhood education, and repayment of state general obligation bond debt.

The CBP neither supports nor opposes Proposition 38. This analysis is designed to help voters make an informed decision based on the merits of the issues.

No Casino Fundraising Dinner at Helwig - Tues Oct 9

Join us for this No Casino In Plymouth Fundraising dinner!
Seating is LIMITED... so get your tickets now!

Dear No Casino In Plymouth Supporters;
Some of you have expressed dismay at the cost of this first fundraising event at Helwig Winery. Even though this dinner is open to anyone who would like to attend (within a limited number of tickets) we did have a target audience of people and business who may face a large negative financial impact from a casino in Plymouth and so it had been suggested to us to do a large fundraiser like this. We are aware of the cost of these tickets and are planning other dinners and events into the spring that will provide for all budgets.  In fact we have a very fun and delicious Paella Dinner in the works at $100 per plate and are working on a venue. Then sometime in the spring or early summer we are planning a dinner/dance more like our past fall affairs for about $35-$40 dollars per ticket.

This is a group/community effort and support  for this cause is not limited to financial support. All of these events will require volunteers, auction items, and wine donations so there is opportunity to everyone to help in some way. We have been casino free for almost ten years now due to the continued support of each and every one of you out there. We cannot do this without you and encourage you to continue to check our website &  blog for updates, events, and news of other community input that will be needed every step of the way.

Thank you all,

UPDATE, SEPT 28, 2012

 Hi Everyone,

This is just a reminder that ticket sales for the Helwig dinner will cut off Monday (Oct 1) so we can get the head count to the caterers.  Thanks to all of you for your support.  This will be a great dinner with our legal team.

The good news today is that we have finished and filed our amended complaint and are very happy with final document. We are confident that with your support we are going to stop this illegal casino with its negative impacts on our community.
