Park Renovations Fundraiser

Hello,
My name is Jerry Lamark. My family and I have lived in Forty Fort for over 35 years. As a way to give back to our community, the Forty Fort residents and I created the Forty Fort Park Restoration around 20 years ago. Throughout that time, we raised over $56,000. With those funds we were able to install a fort, new swings, a pike peak, new tables, benches as well as other playground equipment. We also changed the basketball rims that needed updating, but now the court needs attention.

We need the court to be resurfaced, cameras installed throughout the park and need to update playground equipment for children under 5 years of age. We plan on raising $50,000 to achieve these goals with your help.

We are seeking the help of all that has enjoyed the Forty Fort Park, those who still do and for everyone who is looking to enhance the park and make it a safe and fun environment for our neighborhood children. Thank you for your consideration in helping The Forty Fort Restoration.

Below is the information needed to send a donation if possible.

Tips to Avoid Being a Victim of Fraud

If you receive an unexpected e-mail saying your account will be shut down unless you confirm your billing information, such as a Social Security number, do not reply or click any links in the e-mail body.

Before submitting financial information through a Web site, look for the “lock” icon on the browser’s status bar. It means your information is secure during transmission.

If you are uncertain about the information, contact the company through an address or telephone number you know to be genuine.

If you unknowingly supplied personal or financial information, contact your bank and credit card company immediately.

Monitor credit card and bank statements for unauthorized charges.

Suspicious e-mail can be forwarded to uce@ftc.gov, and complaints should be filed with the state attorney general’s office or through the FTC at http://www.ftc.gov/.

Consumers should also report fraudulent or suspicious e-mail to their Internet service provider.

Home Improvement Scams

Beware of the travelling home improvement contractors who knock on your door with news of extra materials on hand so a real deal can be had.  Often, it’s not.  An example are driveway sealing contractors.  While there are many reputable contractors, some will rip off residents with substandard products that are poorly applied for an expensive price.  We have even heard of used motor oil being spread on driveways, purported to be driveway sealer!  Sales pressure is then turned up to demand payment for work that was “already done”.  

Other home improvement troubles arise when a contractor demands most or all of the money up front.  Some contractors simply need the money to buy materials to start your job.  Others have no intention of doing the work and simply pocket the cash while giving a false timetable of when they will start on your project.  Talk to your family, neighbors and friends to find honorable contractors – positive word of mouth is the best advertisement.
