New Hampton Connection - March 13, 2017
Voting Day will proceed as scheduled
on Tuesday, March 14th 2017 from 11am to 7pm
(based on recommendation of Governor Sununu)

Some towns have decided to postpone their Elections, but after review of State laws and words of caution by the Governor that towns postponing their voting may see legal challenges, the Town will proceed with the Voting tomorrow.  This was also complicated by the fact that New Hampton is part of a 7-town School District, which votes on the school issues by ballot.  These towns cannot vote on different days.  

Town of New Hampton

Beware of Two Telephone Scams
Please be aware of a new VISA & MasterCard Credit Card SCAM being utilized in the Midwest currently and making its way across our country.  This Scam is very well thought out and very successful as the individual (scammer) provides the caller all the information pertaining to their Credit Card except for the one piece of information they are looking for.  Note the callers do not ask you for your credit card number as they already have it.

Another Apparent Scam Circulating
We have recently received a report of another possible scam where the calls being made are coming from Washington DC, Virginia, and restricted numbers.  When the person receiving the calls dials the numbers back they are told that because they have not requested assistance from the “U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services” they are being awarded a grant, somewhere between $6,000 - $10,000.  Then they are asked for bank account information so the money can be direct deposited into their account. 
Always be careful with your information!!!
