It’s HOT Outside!! Albany Area Pools Open Soon!!!

I don’t handle summer weather too well. Heck, I even break a sweat when attempting to tie my shoes. I’m comfortable wearing shorts in 60 degree weather.

Harris Connect LLC Scamming Albany Area Alumni

I received a post card from my high school asking me to call a 1-800 number within 7 days to verify my alumni information. It looked legit. It had my name, the year I graduated - it even had the Saratoga High School logo on it. There was something that didn’t seem right, though.

Box confirmed that I was almost a scam victim. Thanks, internet!
