Important and timely information to help you make smart financial decisions.
In recognition of Earth Day, Sandia Area will hold a document shredding and food drive event open to the community on April 22, 2017 from 9AM- 12PM. Documents will be destroyed on site. Should there be a need to shred more documents than the onsite machine’s capacity, they will be securely transported to Adelante’s Document Destruction facility for shredding. All shredded documents will be recycled.
Last year, the event helped the community safely destroy over 8,000 pounds of confidential documents. By shredding and recycling this paper, we helped save 68 trees, 1,535 gallons of oil, 12 cubic yards of landfill space, and 28,283 gallons of water and reduce air pollution by 242 pounds. In addition, the community provided 1,729 pounds of non-perishable food donations to benefit The Storehouse, New Mexico's largest food pantry.

If you’re one of the many millions of people who have ordered a few items from Amazon.com for the holiday, be cautious of fake emails. One such scam going around is an email that tells you there is something wrong with your order and it can't be shipped. Scammers are counting on you wanting to fix the issue quickly.
The Amazon shipping scam can easily fool you. First is the email with the subject line: Your Amazon.com order cannot be shipped. The body of the email tells you to click a link to confirm your information.
The landing page looks really good. It could easily fool you. The page wants your full name and address. But worse, it wants your credit card information including your CVV, your three digit security code on the back.
The scammers are so good, the next page is the real Amazon.com. Here are some things to look for:
Always go to the website directly. In this case, when you go to Amazon.com and log into your account, click the ORDERS tab. If you aren't prompted to update your billing info, then the email you got is not from Amazon.
If you do get this bogus email, Amazon.com wants to know about it. You can report an issue or verify if the email you received is real.
