For Your Information:

WE NEED YOUR HELP DEPTMENT

Many, if not all of the recipients of this Report, receive the FCPD Franconia District Station's "EYE ON CRIME" monthly newsletter in the mail. These are times of budgetary crunches everywhere, and the FCPD is no exception. Therefore, if you would be willing to forego receiving the US Postal Service-delivered "EYE ON CRIME" newsletter, and instead, receive it online (as you do this report), please call the Crime Prevention Office at (703) 922-8263 or send an email to fracpo@fairfaxcounty.gov and tell them you're willing to get the newsletter online instead of in the mail. You will still continue to receive this report weekly by email. If only 500 people sign on (and the mailing list is much greater than that) the amount saved on postage alone will be almost $2000. And then, there are the paper and printing costs
Thanks in advance for your help.

CAC

Mark your calendars! The next CAC meeting will be next Wednesday evening, January 21, 2004 in the Community Meeting room at the Franconia Governmental Center. Social period begins at 7pm, meeting begins at 7:30 pm. We hope to see you there

PHISHING FOR YOUR INFORMATION

The "Phish"-ers are looking for you! The term "phish" or "phishing" might be new to you. These refer! to scams on the internet, whereby identity thieves send bogus email messages, often marked "URGENT," to vast numbers of people, asking for your personal information (Social Security Number, Drivers' License Number, Credit Card Number, Bank and Account Number) so that they can "verify your billing information, update existing accounts, etc. If at any time you receive an email requesting this type of information, please be aware that it is likely to be a scam.
