Consumer Protection Washington: Beat The Latest Scams - Social Security & ID Theft
The SSN scam is now even bigger than the IRS scam!
Remember, the Social Security Administration will NEVER call and tell you that your number has been compromised and is being suspended. This scam is spreading, with many people (including me!) getting multiple calls a day. These calls are originating out of the country, often robotic, and they use technology to make the caller id show a local or official-looking number. If (or maybe I should say WHEN) you get this call, disconnect and immediately block the number.

Lewis County Water Alliance - We are a citizens group in Randle, WA fighting to keep Crystal Geyser from bottling and exporting our water. Our goal is to protect our water and environment for our families, our farms, our fish, and our future.
It is going to take some Big Change in order to keep Big Water corporations out of the Big Bottom and out of Washington State.
Update: Lewis County Water Alliance has received so much support from other towns & regions seeking to halt commercial water interests that Washington Water Alliance has been created.
