Discount selfridges mulberry purse Outlet Don t be scammed by the scammers calling you

Tommy Tu Tone s 867 5309 rocks as the most famous phone number ever delivered in musical pursuits while Wilson Pickett popularized 634 5789 as contact information.

But another number, at least a prefix, should be recognized as prelude to a variety of scams being played on numerous victims.

Case in point, a friend passed along a phone number after a man called to say that he served as a collector for PSE The friend, a business owner, allegedly owed more than $8,000.

He called (855 221 7306) then asked for information about this collection service. Of course, the office worker gave no address, general location, or employee identification number.

The employee told the business owner that he could avoid an almost immediate shut off by wiring the full payment.

Their phone conversation ended with cursed words as the friend suggested an expletive directed command that remains impossible.

New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs Acting Director Steve C. Lee alerted the public.

Impostor scams like this are unfortunately quite common. They may take the form of phone calls or emails. They may demand payment via a wire transfer service or pre loaded debit card, or they may ask for personal information that could expose you to identity theft, Lee said.

By the way, area code 855 is a non geographic area code, meaning that it is not associated with any particular city, state, province, or country.

Area code 855 is a toll free number, that recently joined the list of 800, 888, 877, 866, and 844 toll free numbers. Area codes 833 and 822 are reserved for future toll free numbers.

Back in the office, I took my turn with the phone number.

Collections, this is Kevin Bryant. How may I help you?, he said.

Hmmm. He sounded professional. Polite. But most of these scam artists always start out smoother than a Brazilian bikini wax then end on a bed of nails.

Kevin asked for my name and PSE account number. Mr. Bryant refused to offer an address for his company. His frustration forced a disconnect then my call back.

It s you again, Bryant said.

The pressure continued until he offered a curse word or two and I followed him into that crypt of political incorrectness. Bryant hung up again.

A busy signal preceded the next call. Then, one more call allowed a final shot at Bryant.

The scam artist did not enjoy being referenced with that designation.

Lee offered additional instructions for consumers.

Any individual who receives a threatening demand for money from someone who purports to be from a utility company, the IRS, or any other entity, should immediately assume that the call is a scam, Lee noted.

Related Articles How Long Do Vitamin Supplements Last in the Bottle? How to Dispose of Old Vitamins What Vitamins Should a Woman Take Daily? Advice for Taking an Iron Supplement

It’s not uncommon to find multivitamins or individual vitamin supplements that migrated to the back of the cabinet and are now past their expiration date. Although it may not be dangerous to take expired supplements, they won’t be as strong as when you first bought them. The FDA does not require that supplements have expiration dates, but most reputable vitamin companies will try to determine when the supplement loses its potency.

PotencyThe main issue with taking vitamins after their expiration date is that they lose their potency and therefore their effectiveness. Generally, an expiration date indicates the last date of their highest level of potency. You are likely taking a vitamin to get some health benefits, so you want your vitamins to be as effectively potent as possible. If a label says it contains a certain amount of a vitamin, after a year or two there may only be half as much because it breaks down over time. It is difficult to quantify how much is degraded, therefore, its best to just throw away expired vitamins and supplements.

Side EffectsExpired vitamins do not go bad like food does and they do not turn into poison or toxins. Many expiration dates are set very conservatively because it benefits the supplement company. It is not dangerous to take expired vitamins, but as mentioned, the vitamins will lose their potency. There have been no documented cases of illness or death from expired vitamins,
brown mulberry bag black friday Do Vitamins Expire or Go Bad
but throw the supplements away if they have an off smell or have changed color.

Proper StorageIf not stored properly, vitamins will lose their potency even faster. Exposure to heat, light, and air can cause vitamins to degrade faster. Store the vitamins in their original containers in a cool, dry place. Do not allow the vitamins to be exposed to heat or light. Many of the B vitamins are very sensitive to light exposure. Some supplements require refrigeration or other special storage, so always follow the directions on the bottle.

Disposal of VitaminsIf your vitamins are expired and you want to toss them, get rid of them properly. It is important not to flush them in the toilet or throw them into the trash. Putting them into the water supply can possibly hurt other people and organisms. If an animal or child gets into the trash and accidentally consumes the vitamins, they could get sick. It is better to mix the vitamins with used coffee grounds or cat litter and then put that into a container with a lid.

mulberry selfridges double to lead NF over McKinley

handbags stores double to lead NF over McKinley

Two minutes into the fourth quarter, Niagara Falls had just forced another McKinley turnover. Jacelyn Jefferson got the steal and passed to Cassidy Frank down the middle of the court. On a two on one, Frank passed to Luxury Ubiles on the low block. Frank then got the pass right back to finish the fast break perhaps the most crisp possession for either team.

That score added to a double digit lead and helped Niagara Falls seal a 48 29 non league win over McKinley on Tuesday night at the Wolvarena.

NF (5 5, 3 4 Niagara Frontier League) suffered its fourth league loss of the year to rival Grand Island last week. It responded with a dominating performance against McKinley.

The Wolverines were led by Frank, who netted 18 points and had 11 rebounds for her fifth double double of the season.

“She’s very tough to stop down low and she gets fouled a lot,” Tiberi said after the game. “And she’s got an outside game too. . She brings that every night, that’s something we didn’t have last year, someone who can almost every night bring a double double to the table.”

Along with Frank, sophomore Dinah Harris also recorded a double double 10 rebounds and 11 assists and was threepoints shy of a triple double.

Tuesday night’s win was the fifth win on the season for NF. Ithad five wins all of last year. The Wolverines return to NFL play Friday as they host Niagara Wheatfield, which is tied with Lockport atop the NFL’s Frontier Division.

Trevor Book poured in 29 points and the Lumberjacks (11 2, 5 2 NFL) needed almost all of them to come back to beat the Bulldogs (3 10,

1 8) on the road Monday. Down 58 49, NT went small and held East to eight points in the fourth quarter.

“We’re extremely fortunate to get out of Kenmore East with the victory,” NT coach Ryan Mountain said. “They played excellent basketball and threw some triangle and two at us that gave us some problems.”

Dante Moultrie added 14 points for NT, Sean Ferry chipped in 13 and Noah Fox Stoddard had eight points and five steals.

Nate Murdie led four East scorers in double figures with 13 points. Tyler Everett had 12, all on 3 pointers.

Discount used mulberry bags Outlet Dogs ate owner after mauling her to death

is mulberry outlet online genuine Dogs ate owner after mauling her to death

Thursday in a remote area in the 2200 block of Manakin Road in Goochland County by her father.

On Monday, Sheriff Jim Agnew called a late press conference telling the journalists he wants to be completely transparent in the case. They said the dogs would not let anybody get close to her.

“While we were thinking about strategies to catch the dogs, we had turned and looked, the dogs had gone back over to the body,” says Sheriff Agnew. “And I observed, along with four other deputy sheriffs observed, the dog eating the rib cage on the body. We were able to shoo them away.”

Agnew says they were able to capture the dogs when a friend of Stephens called the animals.

He says one of the dogs had blood on its fur. Photos shows the young woman’s dozens of pieces of shredded clothing that were scattered over a large area. It was near a large pool of blood. Her body was found a few feet away in the woods.

Stephens had extensive injuries to her chest, arms and face. asked if the bite marks were consistent with dogs or a bigger animal.

“The medical examiner in his preliminary talk with our deputies made it pretty clear that it was not a large animal, because the bite wounds on her head did not penetrate her skull,” says Sheriff Agnew.

Detectives say all of her injuries were consistent with bite marks from dogs.

“They did a CAT scan x ray of her body before they even did the autopsy,” says investigator Shawn Whitlock. “And there was nothing that said domestic violence. Nothing that said she was stabbed. Nothing that said she was shot. No bones broken. No injuries to the throat area.”

The dogs were euthanized on Saturday. It was something suggested by the sheriff’s office, who says they had support from the family.

“I think it was in the best interest of our community and for public safety to do that,” says Sheriff Agnew. “Once a dog tastes human flesh, it’s no longer safe to have that dog around humans.”

Investigators are also giving insight in the state of the dogs prior to Stephens’ death.

“The dogs were a little bit neglected towards the end,
Discount used mulberry bags Outlet Dogs ate owner after mauling her to death
” says Sergeant Mike Blackwood.

He says the dogs were staying on the father’s property, but Stephens did not live there full time. He says the animals were kept outside in the cold.

“She would come home maybe five times to her father’s house a week on average and take the dogs out,” says Blackwood. “And they became more isolated where the only contact they had was with each other and it was less and less human contact.”

Friends say Stephens raised the dogs most of their lives. Both loved ones and the sheriff’s office confirm these were not fighting dogs.

Investigators say they are looking into alleged threats made on Stephens’ life before her death, but they do not suspect foul play. They stress this investigation is not closed.

“From what we found on the scene, from the evidence we observed, the evidence we collected, that narrative doesn’t fit,” Agnew said.

The sheriff is looking for someone to conduct a necropsy on both animals and they say they also need to someone to analyze the dog’s waste. A toxicology test is also going to be done on Stephens.

The sheriff says he hopes putting out this information will stop a lot of the misinformation out there especially on social media. He says the family is having a difficult time.

“They are devastated,” he said. “They are worn out. They are dealing with trying to piece everything together and filtering out the misinformation. They wish to remain private.”

The Richmond SPCA released the following statement on the tragic death:

“The Board and staff of the Richmond SPCA are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic death of Bethany Stephens. Our hearts are with her family and we extend our sincere condolences to them. Every tragedy that results in the loss of life is unique and should not be the occasion to make broad generalizations about groups, whether they be groups of people or of animals. Every dog is an individual and circumstances vary in every tragic instance,” said Robin Robertson Starr, Chief Executive Officer of the Richmond SPCA.

“The term bull is a vague one and often it is used based on nothing but the perception of unspecific physical characteristics which are highly subjective in nature. There are many dogs that may be identified as being of the bull type that are wonderful and loving family pets. We support the investigative work of law enforcement agencies, and we also urge our community not to take a tragedy as an occasion to make unwarranted and unfounded generalizations about types of dogs. Every dog, just like every person,
Discount used mulberry bags Outlet Dogs ate owner after mauling her to death
is an individual.”

Discount mulberry outlet bristol Outlet Districts doing more to get students ready for college

Carlos Galindo places textbooks into his locker at Royal high School on Thursday. Though he took no advanced placement classes last year, this year he has four.(Photo: ANTHONY PLASCENCIA/THE STAR)Buy PhotoTwo years ago, Carlos Galindo, a senior at Royal High School in Simi Valley, didn’t know what Advanced Placement classes were. This year, he’s taking four of the college level classes, including physics and calculus, along with a rigorous music class.

What made the difference? A new approach inSimi Valley aimed at getting more students to take the classes they need to apply to the state’s public universities theA G requirements. Other districts, includingSanta Paula Unified, are taking similar steps.

Essentially, districts are looking for students who could thrive in those classes but aren’t taking them. They identifystudents through their scores on thePSAT, a practice college entrance exam, or teacher recommendations, then encourage them to take the more challenging classes. For Advanced Placement classes, they’re also removing prerequisites that may have kept students out.

“Our job is to open up doors, not close them,” said Keith Derrick, principal at Royal.

Last year, only 37 percent of Ventura County students had met the A G requirements, significantly lower than thestate average of 43 percent.

These are the requirements:

English: four yearsMath: three years required, four recommendedHistory and social science: two yearsLaboratory science: two yearsLanguage other than English: two yearsVisual and performing arts: one yearCollege preparatory elective: one year. This can include any class that meets the A G requirements.

Most local students not ready for state universities

In the Simi Valley Unified School District, 40 percent of students met those requirements last year. Superintendent Jason Peplinski wanted to change that. So the district worked with Equal Opportunity Schools to get more kids into the classes they need for college.

Buy PhotoCarlos Galindo plays a clarinet during his International Baccalaureate music class at Royal High School on Thursday. Though he took no advanced placement classes last year, this year he has four. (Photo: ANTHONY PLASCENCIA/THE STAR)

A philosophy of inclusionThe district started by putting all freshmen on an A G track, Peplinski said.

“It’s a philosophy of inclusion,” he said. “When we say all students, we need to mean that. It’s not been perfect, but we’ve seen some real success.”

Simi Valley then looked at who was taking Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes the more demanding courses that competitive universities look for. They realized that the students taking those classes didn’t reflect the district’s demographics as a whole and also decided to change that.

First, they removed the prerequisites for the classes, realizing they kept out some students who otherwise might thrive in them. Then they looked for students who fit into one or more of these categories:

Had a grade point average of 3.5 or higherWere recommended by two or more teachersIndicated they wanted to take an AP or IB class.

Offering some supportNext, the districtworked with both students and their parents, telling them they had been identified as capable of taking the classes. They offered a summer classto prepare students for taking AP courses. And during the year, tutoring will be available, as well as workshops before and after school, so students who need help get it.

“It’s one thing to put students in those classes,” Derrick said. “We also need to provide support for those students to be successful.”

The effort appears to be paying off. About 140 more students enrolled in AP or IB classes this year, Peplinski said. By mid year 95 percent had a C or higher in their class, he said.

Galindo is one of them.

At first, he was skeptical.

“I wasn’t really sure I could succeed in those classes,” he said. “I knew I would need support from the staff and the school. But that kind of served as motivation to take that step.”
