Do any of you get caught up in the stories on the Nextdoor App.  Sometimes it is a little like a soap opera with many who are at home during the day reporting on happenings in the neighborhood.  Now, with videos on our doorbells, well meaning neighbors will share suspicious videos of people at the door. But, I digress…last week a woman on the app was disheartened to share that a recommendation on the app had resulted in a scam against her.  She was embarrassed to share too many details, but wanted everyone to know and be careful of the people and businesses recommended by neighbors.  She confessed to losing a lot of money.  Here is an article from AARP which may be helpful to some of you:  Many Older Americans Unaware of Common Scams, Survey Finds.

    Thank you, Pam

    1. You are welcome, Lois. I think it is important to keep telling the stories. I saw another woman report a scam on Next Door today!
