They passed on to us today at work a new text email scam going on taking advantage of the coronavirus fears and state orders. If you get a text or email message telling you someone you came in contact with has the Coronvrus or COVID, do not click the link in the message. It is a phishing message and will be attempting to steal your identity and personal information so they can steal your money. If it was real it would identify the organization contacting you and again do not click the link, it could still be a phishing email. Go on the Internet or look in phone book and get the web age url or the phone number there and contact them using the url or phone number from their web page or the phone book.

DwightTO SUBSCRIBE This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
