We know you have a lot of options, and your patronage means the world not only to our executive staff but to every employee who is able to provide for themselves and their family as a result. If we had just one holiday wish, we’d wish that all companies could have clients just like you! Merry Christmas, and cheers to a happy and healthy New Year.

Notice and warnings of scams for 2023


  1. be wary of phishing scams because nearly 75% of Americans experienced at least one type of holiday scam last year
  2. do not click on text messages stating your order cannot be delivered - typical scam
  3. Create fraudulent charities that steal your money. Con artists create fake charities or GoFundMe campaigns to trick you into sending money or sharing your personal information.
  4. Offer deals on hard-to-find items or airline tickets. Many schemes take advantage of popular holiday items or inflated travel costs to get you to buy fake items and tickets.
  5. Impersonate well-known brands to steal your personal information. Scammers send emails, texts, or make calls claiming to be from companies you know (like Amazon or Walmart) and steal your login information or money.

BE CAREFUL
