I am reporting a scam …the woman claimed she was from Direct TV. She wanted to explain some promotion and asked immediately for Mr Shimick’s SS#. I grab the phone asking why? I asked to speak to her supervisor. She hung up! Mr. Shimick suffers from dementia.. and I cannot always intercept these types of calls .

Beware of posting on Craig’s list. A buyer wanted to purchase a listed item and prepay with a cashier’s check that included extra up front money for “the mover”; then wanted to have me wire money to the mover and would let me keep $50 extra for my trouble. The buyer would not respond with his (buyer’s) real name or email address.
When I asked where I could return the check via mail or I would take the text string to the Sheriff, he did not reply.

@kenny I think that your mentality is a bit skewed if you relate tats with criminal behavior. Tattoos are an artistic form of expression involving the bodies most personnal and infinite canvas, the skin. They do not have anything to do with criminal behavior and an outdated biased mentality that unfairly judges has no place in modern society.
