Giant printer closing, scammers try texting, real estate transactions...

From Business Today:

The giant printing plant on George Urban Boulevard has had LOCAL QUEBECOR GEE many names during its nearly 50-year run: J. W. Clements, Arcata Graphics, Quebecor, Worldcolor and finally Quad/Graphics. Through all those ownership changes the bottom line at the plant remained the same: quality work at affordable prices. That formula kept the plant running while many others closed. But the changing marketplace and corporate ownership has caught up with the book printer, and it will close at the end of November. At it's peak the plant employed over 1,500. Today about 400 work there. -30-

Scammers are an inventive bunch. They try to steal your identity with all sorts of ploys, including fame emails in a ploy called 'phishing.' Now the crafty thieves are taking their games to your text in box in a LOCAL ID THEFT GEE scam called 'smishing.'  Through fake text messages purported to be from your bank, they seek to have you divulge your personal information. Banks are telling their customers, unless you have set it up in advance, they do not contact you via text messages, so do not respond.

Who is getting hired, promoted or honored?
