Beware of Scams

This latest alert comes from Metrocast about phishing emails.

Beware of any e-mail that asks you to reveal personal identifying information, including your online logins, user IDs and passwords, even if the email threatens some serious consequence. The email may not be legitimate even though it contains authentic logos and trademarks from companies with whom you regularly do business.

Responding to such email, or clicking on links within the email that lead to websites, may cause viruses and malicious software to infect your computer. It may also result in the theft of your online credentials and other personal identifying information that could allow cyber criminals to gain unauthorized access to your accounts.

Please be advised that MetroCast will never ask you by email to provide personal or financial information, your account number, user name or password, or ask you to verify your email. If you suspect that you’ve received a fraudulent e-mail that appears to be from MetroCast, do not click on it or provide any personal information.

If you are unsure whether a suspicious email that appears to have been sent by MetroCast is legitimate, you may send it as an attachment or paste it into a new email to phishing@metrocast.com.

Likewise, please be aware of scams from persons contacting you by phone or email stating that they are representing MetroCast or another company with whom you do business claiming that you owe money and asking to collect the payment in cash at your home. If you should receive a call or email to this effect, please contact the company in question directly to determine the status of your account and to verify whether the attempt to reach you is legitimate.

Town Park has an Official Name

“The Kilmarnock Town Centre Park” is the culmination of several reviews to give the site an official name. It reflects Town Centre Drive which runs along the southern most side of the property and indicates the central location of the park. Congratulations to all involved!
