Don't Be Fooled by a Fake Package Delivery Scam https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam

Whether you took advantage of Amazon Prime Day, shopped an online "Christmas in July" sale or just ordered something sporadically, be on the lookout for fake package delivery scams. With so many people shopping online, package deliveries are on the rise and have doubled since 2010. Scammers, never missing a beat, are taking advantage of this to fool consumers into giving out their personal information.
 
How the Scam Works
 
You receive a call or an email from someone claiming to be your mail carrier or a parcel delivery service saying that they were unable to deliver a package to your home. If you don’t remember ordering anything that needs to be delivered, the caller may try to convince you the package is a gift from a friend or relative. The caller may sound friendly and professional, making the scam harder to spot.
 
The emails could also claim to be from the online retailer you purchased from, containing official logos and using professional language.
 
However, things get suspicious quickly. The caller will ask you to verify personal information or give them your credit card information to reschedule the delivery. Email messages may ask you to click on a tracking link or sign back into your account for your mystery package. When you click, you may download malware onto your computer or take you to a fraudulent site that gives con artists access to any personal information and passwords.
 
No matter the method of contact, the package doesn’t exist. Sharing your personal information puts you at risk for identity theft. 
 
How to Avoid Package Delivery Scams
 
  • Be wary of unsolicited communications. Package delivery companies will never contact you unsolicited via telephone call. Instead, if a package cannot be delivered, they usually will leave a note on your door. They may follow up with an email, but most official communications will be within your secure online account.
 
  • Track your packages. Always keep track of your online purchases and expected deliveries. Request tracking numbers so you will know when each package is due to arrive. When you know what you are expecting, it will be harder for a scammer to fool you with the claim of a fake package delivery.
 
  • Never give your personal information to strangers. Even when the caller is friendly, always use caution when asked for personal information. You can always hang up, look up the official customer service number, and directly contact the company to confirm their request. Whenever possible, use the customer service contact information or chat function within your account at the company.
 
  • Never click on links in unsolicited emails. Links in emails can download malware onto your computer. Don’t click links in emails from people you don’t know or from companies who you have not asked to be contacted by. Be wary of official-looking email; popular brands can easily be spoofed.

Window II by Natsuki Takauji The Rye Arts Center Presents a New Sculpture In Rye Town Park https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park

Next time you stroll through Rye Town Park you’ll find a new addition to the landscape. Window II is an interactive sculpture created by New York-based Japanese artist Natsuki Takauji. This new work of art is a functioning swing surrounded by colorful windows. Made of stainless steel, steel, paint, fabric, and acrylic, Window II stands ten feet tall and overlooks the Long Island Sound. You won’t find the typical “do not touch” sign near this sculpture. Instead, visitors are encouraged to climb aboard and enjoy the swing.

The artist shares in a statement:

“‘Window’ means our perception. We are seeing everything through some sort of ‘Window’, and I am hoping this interactive sculpture will give a new experience of art in nature, art in public, and also one's perception. Swing is a metaphor of our life, we never stay still, moving from space to space, state to state, emotion to emotion. The design of it can remind us of many things that contain us and move us forward.”

Takauji studied drawing, painting, and sculpture at The Art Students League of New York where she currently teaches metal sculpture. Her work has been shown at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Berkeley College Gallery, Noho Gallery, The Center for Contemporary Art Bedminster, and The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. As the title implies, Window II echoes a previous work by Takauji, Window, which was displayed in Manhattan’s Riverside Park in 2014-2015.

Window II is part of The Rye Arts Center Public Art Initiative led by local sculptor, Bob Clyatt. It is a temporary installation and will remain in Rye Town Park for one year.

All are invited to learn more about Ms. Takauji and her work at an artist talk on Thursday, July 26, at 5:30 PM. The talk will take place at the sculpture.

Window II is made possible through collaboration with Rye Town Park and the generous support of ArtsWestchester, New York State Council on the Arts, Westchester Community Foundation, and Con-Tech Construction Technology, Inc.

Mayor de Blasio Announces Ticker Tape Parade to Honor World Cup Championship Winning U.S. Women's Soccer Team https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team

To celebrate the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s World Cup victory, Mayor de Blasio announced the City will host a ticker tape parade in their honor and present them with the keys to the City on Wednesday, July 10th.   

“On and off the field, this team represents what’s best about New York City and our Nation. The confidence, grit, and perseverance of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team serve as an inspiration to all who watch them,” said Mayor de Blasio.

"New York is incredibly proud to join the rest of the country in celebrating this exhilarating World Cup Victory," said First Lady Chirlane McCray. "We applaud the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s athletic prowess, their advocacy in fighting for equal pay, and their use of their international platform to speak out against injustice."

“We are incredibly excited and honored to celebrate the U.S. Women’s National Team’s World Cup victory with the amazing people of New York City,” said U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro. “This team is truly special, and so is the level of support that our fans have shown every step of the way along the quest to a fourth star. I’d like to sincerely thank Mayor de Blasio and the City of New York for providing us the opportunity to share this victory with everyone.”

In the final game of the tournament, the USWNT prevailed over the Netherlands 2 to 0. This is the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s fourth World Cup victory, breaking the record they set in 2015 for most Women’s World Cup victories. The United States is the only country to reach the semifinals of all eight FIFA Women's World Cups that have been held since the inaugural tournament in 1991.

The USWNT’s first match of the 2019 tournament against Thailand was the biggest win in the history of the Women's World Cup, surpassing Germany 's 11-0 result against Argentina in 2007. At 13-0, it’s also the largest margin of victory in the history of the World Cup.

New York City has hosted 206 parades along the Canyon of Heroes since the first one in 1886 celebrating the dedication of the Statue of Liberty. The last ticker tape parade held in New York City honored the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s 2015 World Cup victory. That parade was the first time a women’s athletic team was honored.

A limited number of tickets will be available to the general public to attend a ceremony at City Hall celebrating the U.S. Women’s National Team which will take place on Wednesday, July 10 at 10:30 AM following the parade. Registration will open at 2:00 PM on Monday, July 8 at nyc.gov/USWNT19.

Details about parade access and press logistics will be released on Monday.

Bring the family for a free, outdoor day of fun! People’s United Bank presents Shakespeare on the Green & Green Expo at The Ridgefield Playhouse

This much loved annual event brings in more than 500 attendees each year and is a “thank you” to the community. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, August 4.  The Green Expo runs from 12pm – 2pm and a family friendly version of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, produced and performed by Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, will take place live under the tent at 2pm.

Tickets for Shakespeare on the Green & Green Expo are FREE but must be reserved by calling the box office at 203-438-5795, with a limit of 6 tickets per family on a first come, first served basis. Tickets will be held at the box office until 1pm the day of the show. In addition to People’s United Band, this event is sponsored by Eversource, Benchmark Senior Living at Ridgefield Crossings and Ann & Steve Carlson. Additional Support provided by All Season Party Rentals and Pepsi.

A charismatic war hero on the brink of kingship, Caesar is celebrated by the people of Rome–but mistrusted by some of his closest friends who fear his popularity will throw the country into chaos. In this immersive, 90-minute touring production, audiences will help bring this anachronistic tale of violent betrayal to vivid life, constructing a post-apocalyptic world of power and consequence.

The Green Expo features local businesses that are conscious about making environmentally friendly choices. The experts who will be participating in the Green Expo will explain how easy it can be to implement sustainability in our workplace practices, in how we run our homes and how we can make everyday choices that are not only good for us but also for the environment. Food samples, food for purchase, product information and demonstrations make this “green” entertaining and educational event one not to miss.

The Green Expo Community Sponsors are: Barts Tree Service, Candles Inspired by Nature, Center for Green Building, Citra Solv, Curbside Compost, CTNOFTA, DotDotSmile, Embody the Sacred, Farm to Jar, Flower Girl Florist, Goat Boy Soap, Grow Wellness Therapy, Hollandia Nurseries, H.O.R.S.E. of CT, Jessica Mancini – LimeLife by Alcone, JumpDrum, Krystal Kleer Water, The Market at Union Hall, Peterson Chiropractic & Acupuncture, Popcentric Pops, Possibilities Farm, Putnam Service Dogs, Ridgefield Action Committee for the Environment (RACE), Reverie Brewing Company, Ridgefield Kempo, ROAR, Two Roads Brewing Company, Turning Point Reiki & World Champion Tae Kwon Do.

For tickets (FREE) call or visit the box office, 203-438-5795 or go online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org.  The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.

Beware of Summer Ticket Scams https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4975-beware-of-summer-ticket-scams4975-beware-of-summer-ticket-scams https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4975-beware-of-summer-ticket-scams4975-beware-of-summer-ticket-scams

Trying to get tickets to a hot concert or sold-out Broadway show? Watch out! Ticket scammers try to fool unsuspecting fans into buying fake tickets. Here is what you need to know about online ticket purchases.

Thanks to the internet, there are countless ways for consumers to find tickets and connect with online marketplaces, ticket sellers, and resellers. Unfortunately, some of them are rip-offs and it's not always clear how to tell if a ticket is fake.

Last year, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) received nearly 400 reports on BBB Scam Tracker about ticket scams related to sporting events, concerts, theatre and more.

BBB Serving Connecticut is warning consumers to be smart when searching for and purchasing tickets, to ensure they are purchasing from a trustworthy source. BBB and the National Association of Ticket Brokers, a BBB National Partner, are working to raise awareness and educate fans about the smartest ways to buy tickets on the secondary resale market.

Here are some tips, whether you are looking for tickets for a game or any other event:

  • Purchase from the venue whenever possible. Many official ticket sales agents now offer secondary sales options, as well.
  • Consider your source. Know the difference between a professional ticket broker (a legitimate and accredited reseller), a ticket scalper (an unregulated and unlicensed ticket seller) and a scammer selling scam tickets.
  • Check out the seller/broker. Look them up on bbb.org to learn what other customers have experienced. Check to see if they are a member of the National Association of Ticket Brokers. NATB members offer a 200% purchase guarantee on tickets. Look up the seller on VerifiedTicketSource.com to confirm you are buying from an NATB-member resale company.
  • Know the refund policy. You should only purchase tickets from a ticket reseller that provides clear details about the terms of the transaction. Sellers should disclose to the purchaser, prior to purchase, the location of the seats represented by the tickets, either orally or by reference to a seating chart; and, if the tickets are not available for immediate access to the purchaser, disclose when the tickets will ship or be available for pick up.
  • Use payment methods that come with protection. Always use a credit card so you have some recourse if the tickets are not as promised. Debit cards, wire transfer or cash transactions are risky; if the tickets are fraudulent, you won’t be able to get your money back.
  • Be wary of advertisements. When you search the web for online tickets, advertisements for cheap tickets will often appear. Use good judgment; some of these ads are going to be ticket scams, especially if the prices are extremely low.
  • If you’re unsure, verify your tickets. Pay a visit to the arena where the event will be held. Present your ticket to “Will Call” (customer service) and they can verify if your ticket is legitimate and show you how to tell if a ticket is fake.


The National Association of Ticket Brokers is a BBB National Partner and we thank them for sponsoring this information.

Silvermine Arts Center will devote its Galleries this summer to the work of more than 130 Guild members from across the country. Paul Efstathiou, an independent art curator who established the popular Highlight Curated exhibition series in New York and Connecticut, served as Juror for the exhibition. The Summer Salon Guild Exhibition runs from July 6 to Aug. 21, and an opening reception will take place on Sat., July 13 from 6 to 8 pm.

Paul Efstathiou has worked for nearly 17 years as an art dealer and independent curator. From 2004 through 2016, he ran PTE Fine Arts, an arts consultancy and showroom, in partnership with his brother, Eric Efstathiou. In 2016, he established the exhibition series Highlight Curated as a means of bringing new attention to and advancing the careers of contemporary artists with whom he’s developed long-lasting relationships. Efstathiou has produced five Highlight Curated exhibitions to date, including three with Hollis Taggart, and has featured the work of more than 20 artists, including William Buchina, Ted Gahl, Brenda Goodman, John Knuth, Matt Mignanelli, Esther Ruiz, and Devin Troy Strother. Efstathiou also previously collaborated with Hollis Taggart on exhibitions of works by Michael Michaeledes (2012) and Theodoros Stamos (2008 and 2010). Efstathiou is dedicated to nurturing the careers of emerging and under-recognized artists in collaboration with both the business and nonprofit sectors of the art world.

Many of the Silvermine Guild members in the Summer Salon are from the Northeast region, but the Guild’s membership has expanded geographically over the years, and the exhibition draws from what is now a national roster. The Summer Salon Guild Exhibition gives the artists and the community a chance to view new work from the Guild in a wide range of disciplines and media—through Aug. 21.

Do Not Eat Mexican Papaya https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4979-do-not-eat-mexican-papaya4979-do-not-eat-mexican-papaya https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4979-do-not-eat-mexican-papaya4979-do-not-eat-mexican-papaya

A CDC food safety alert for an outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to papayas imported from Mexico has been posted at https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/uganda-06-19/index.html.

Key points:

  • CDC, FDA, and public health and regulatory officials in several states are investigating an  outbreak of Salmonella Uganda infections linked to whole, fresh papayas imported from Mexico.
  • Do not eat, serve, or sell whole, fresh papayas imported from Mexico or food that contains papaya from Mexico in these states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
  • 62 ill people have been reported from eight states (Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.)
  • 23 people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.
  • Of 33 ill people with available information, 22 reported being of Hispanic ethnicity.
  • The hospitalization rate in this outbreak is 66 percent among people with information available. The hospitalization rate in Salmonella outbreaks is usually around 20 percent.
  • Most of the sick people in this outbreak are adults over 60.
  • Illnesses started on dates ranging from January 14, 2019, to June 8, 2019. Most illnesses have occurred since April.
  • Interviews with ill people and early product distribution information indicate the likely source of this outbreak is whole, fresh papayas from Mexico that were sold in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
  • This investigation is ongoing and CDC will provide more information as it comes available.

Advice to consumers, retailers, and restaurants:

 

  • If you live in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, or Rhode Island, do not eat whole, fresh papayas imported from Mexico. Throw the papayas away, even if some of them were eaten and no one has gotten sick.
  • Do not eat fruit salads or other foods that include papayas from Mexico.
  • If you aren’t sure the papaya you bought is from Mexico, you can ask the place of purchase. When in doubt, don’t eat the papaya. Throw it out.
  • Wash and sanitize places where papayas were stored: countertops and refrigerator drawers or shelves. Follow these five steps to clean your refrigerator.
  • •The FDA strongly advises importers, suppliers, and distributors, as well as restaurants, retailers and other food service providers from all states to hold whole, fresh papayas imported from Mexico.

About Salmonella:

 

  • Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 12-72 hours after eating contaminated food.
  • The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.
  • See your healthcare provider if you are concerned about symptoms, such as a high fever (temperature over 102˚F), blood in your poop, diarrhea, or frequent vomiting that prevents keeping liquid down.
  • More information can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/features/salmonella-food/index.html.  

If you have more questions about this outbreak, please call the CDC media line at (404) 639-3286. If you have questions about cases in a particular state, please call that state’s health department.

Sun Protection Tips https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4969-plan-your-sun-protection-using-these-tips4969-plan-your-sun-protection-using-these-tips https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4969-plan-your-sun-protection-using-these-tips4969-plan-your-sun-protection-using-these-tips

Skin Cancer Awareness

Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays causes most cases of melanoma, the deadliest kind of skin cancer. To lower your skin cancer risk, protect your skin from the sun and avoid indoor tanning.

Summer is full of outdoor activities. You probably put sunscreen on yourself and your kids when you go to the pool or the beach. But do you know you should protect your skin with more than just sunscreen anytime you’re outside?

Sun protection is important all year round, and it’s best to use several different kinds. When you’re working in the yard, watching a ballgame, or taking an afternoon walk, make sun safety an everyday habit so you can avoid getting a sunburn and lower your chance of getting skin cancer.

What’s In Your Tote Bag?

Here’s an easy tip to help make sure you and your family stay sun-safe. Get ready for summer with a tote bag full of different ways to protect your skin. Keep the tote bag handy so you can grab it whenever you head out for summer fun!
Some important things to pack—

  • A lightweight long-sleeved shirt or cover-up.
  • A hat with a wide brim that shades your face, head, ears, and neck.
  • Sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher and both UVA and UVB (broad spectrum) protection.

More Sun Safety Tips

  • Stay in the shade, especially during late morning through mid-afternoon.
  • Can’t stay in the shade? Wear a long-sleeved shirt and pants to protect your skin.
  • Remember to reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours and after swimming, sweating, or toweling off.

Join the conversation to raise awareness about the benefits of sun protection! Take a photograph of yourself using sun protection and share it on social media with the hashtag #SunSafeSelfie. See our photo gallery!

Fast Facts About Skin Cancer

  • Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, and includes different types.
  • Unprotected skin can be damaged by the sun’s UV rays in as little as 15 minutes.
  • Even if it’s cool and cloudy, you still need protection. UV rays, not the temperature, do the damage.
  • Anyone can get skin cancer, but some things put you at higher risk.
  • The most common signs of skin cancer are changes on your skin, such as a new growth, a sore that doesn’t heal, or a change in a mole.
