·       Condolences to the family of LD23 PC Adam Sonnenklar, whose wife Irene, has passed away. A memorial will be held at 1 pm., Wed., Nov 25 at Green Acres Mortuary & Cemetery, 401 N Hayden Road, Scottsdale, AZ, according to LD23 Chairman Jim O’Connor.

 

·       US Senate Candidate Kelli Ward fielded questions from Wickenburg Republicans for over an hour last night with an enthusiastic smile… and without notes. Ward, an attractive, vibrant, two term Arizona State Legislative Senator, intends to send 30 year incumbent John McCain home to his rocking chair. A debate between those two - before the primary - could be quite interesting!

 

·       Attorney General Mark Brnovich today is warning Arizonans of a new phone scam in which con artists pose as representatives of the Attorney General’s Office to steal money from consumers. The scammers appear to be targeting consumer fraud victims who have lost money in past telemarketing scams. The con artists falsely claim they can help victims get their money back. Victims are conned into paying hundreds of dollars and receive nothing in return. “These crooks have stooped to a new low by revictimizing some of our most vulnerable consumers,” said Brnovich. “Our office will never contact victims of consumer fraud and ask them for money. We are aggressively pursuing the perpetrators of this despicable scam." Scammers know the victim’s name and how much money the victim lost in a previous scam. Victims are told they are eligible to get their money back, but must first make a payment of a few hundred dollars. It’s a new twist on an advanced fee scheme when in all actuality consumers receive nothing. Brnovich Offers These Tips:

ü  The AG’s Office will never ask consumers to make a payment for services provided.

ü   The AG’s Office does not call or mail consumers demanding immediate payment for allegedly overdue bills or unpaid fees.

ü  Consumers should be cautious about paying in advance for services. Pay for services only after they are delivered.

ü  If you get a call from someone claiming to be from or affiliated with the Attorney General’s Office and they ask for money or financial information, contact the AGO directly to verify at (602) 542-5025 or (520) 628-6504.
