Notice from the Western CT Area Agency on Aging – please be aware of any callers you do not recognize Notify either the WCAAA or myself if you are contacted. “CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW” This growing “can you hear me now” phone scam may be the scariest scam yet because it can make you a victim if you say just one word, “YES”. If you receive a phone call from someone asking “can you hear me now,” hang up. You’re a potential victim in the latest scam circulating around the Country. As the victim answers “yes,” his or her reply is recorded. That enables the scammer, to use the recorded answer for signing up the victim for a product or service – and then demand payment. Scammers also can use the recorded answer to confirm a purchase agreement if it is ever disputed. The best thing to do is “HANG UP”. To report Scams or Medicare Fraud please call the Western CT Area Agency on Aging, Senior Medicare Patrol at 203-757-5449.
NOTICE FOR RESIDENTS TO VERIFY MAILING ADDRESSES WITH DMV The Assessor’s Office has found that DMV continues to have many mailing addresses for Colebrook residents listed incorrectly. The Assessor’s Office has manually corrected our town records to assure accurate tax billings. However, DMV addresses must be accurate in order for our residents to receive registration and/or license renewals from the DMV. This is especially important for those vehicles registered by auto dealers or leasing companies. Vehicles driven with expired registrations or licenses are subject to penalties and towing by the State Police at considerable cost and inconvenience to the owner. We urge all residents to verify that their current registrations and licenses list correct mailing addresses and indicate “COLEBROOK 029” as our tax town. You may obtain information on your license and/or registrations online at www.ct.gov/dmv. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Assessor’s Office at email@example.com@colebrooktownhall.org> or call 860-379-3359 ext. 206. Our office is open Mon/Weds/Thurs. from 1:00 – 4:30 pm. Thank you.
