Oregon Scam & Fighting SRS Payback plus Egg Safety

Oregon Scam & Fighting SRS Payback plus Egg Safety

Oregon Scam & Fighting SRS Payback plus Egg Safety. I’m Greg Martin with today’s Northwest Report.

Washington Congressman and House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings along with 30 others have sent a bi-partisan letter to Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack and Budget Director Jeffrey Zients questioning why already disbursed SRS payments are being subjected to the 2013 sequester. Hastings says it doesn’t make sense.

HASTINGS: We’ll wait their response to our letter but to ask recipients of this to send money back when they knew that a potential sequester was in place just doesn’t make sense to me.

I don’t mind making a donation to my local police or state patrol but I refuse to do so through any kind of phone solicitation but that is what scammers are hoping to get in Oregon. Scammers claiming to be troopers have been placing recorded phone calls demanding payment for traffic tickets. Oregon State Police warned these calls are fraudulent and should be ignored. Yet another scam has an “officer” conducting an counterfeit money investigation and then asks you to to withdraw cash for an inspection. Just say NO!

Now egg safety at Easter. Gary Crawford has the eggs-citing report.
