Dear friend

 

Free afternoon tea - who can resist? Especially knowing the cakes and sandwiches come from Waterview! There is a Hub Afternoon Tea this Tuesday in the Waverton Uniting Church Hall. I’m looking forward to meeting more Hub members and catching up with those I haven’t seen for a while! Hope you are too. We need you to book for catering - so see below.

 

Another treat for Hubbers - Theatre parties are back. We’ve booked for the new David Williamson play ‘The Great Divide’ at the Ensemble on Thursday April 18. Tickets are limited, so get in now and make sure you get your tickets. Here is the promotional video from the Ensemble Theatre. See below for more information.

 

All those who came to the talk on Tuesday about Scams and Cyber Crime will be much wiser about avoiding these insidious acts. We learnt how over 65s are the most vulnerable in the community and how scams are constantly updating. I took a few notes - so you can read more below - plus make a note, I suggest on your phone, of the numbers you can contact if you think you are being targeted.

 

We have had our current website for almost 10 years now . In a few months we will be introducing a new look website and with it a new membership system. This will make it much easier for those who work with the membership database and much easier for everyone in the Hub. It will include many exciting new features, including a mobile app which you will learn more about when we are closer to the time.

 

One thing we will also be doing is keeping memberships to annual only. You will be advised when your membership is due and renew annually as you do now. There will no 15-month memberships.

 

Hope to see you at a Hub event soon!

 

Carol

President

 

 

 

Scams and Cyber crime - Tuesday’s talk

 

Senior Constable Michael Alexander from the Crime Prevention Unit was the Speaker at Tuesday’s talk on Scams and Cyber Crime. Here are some points from his talk:

  • Over 65s are the most vulnerable
  • Scammers are constantly adapting
  • Almost all scammers are overseas
  • Common scams are online shopping, NBN scams, flood, fire, the ATO, and crypto
  • Scammers aim to steal personal info

 

What you can do:

  • Don’t ever confirm personal info over the phone
  • If it looks suspicious or you feel uncertain ignore it
  • Be wary of text messages with URLs - don’t click on links!
  • Be wary of text messages about parcels coming your way saying they are tracking your shipment
  • Be wary of messages or emails about tax refunds.
  • Don’t click on links that come by txt
  • Voicemails can be suspicious too - be wary if you don’t know the caller
  • Don’t ever give remote access

 

We were also told that dating and romance scammers are targeting older people or very young people. We heard some very sad stories about older people who had lost a great deal of money this way.

 

Websites you can use to report scams and find out more:

 

www.scamwatch.com.au

www.idcare.org

www.cyber.gov.au

 

You can also call your local police station if you suspect you are being targeted.

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS CHRISTINE
