January Brown Bag Luncheon
Kanette Petry from the Matinsburg office of WV Consumer Protection Division, spoke to SAIL at the January 21 brown bag lunch. She explained that her office looks for a pattern of behavior by a merchant when bringing litigation. She advised that the best protection is prevention. Never verify any information by telephone or email. Government agencies will never call you. If you receive a letter purportedly from a government agency, go to the website to verify the phone number before you dial. If you suspect a scam, file a complaint even if you are not scammed, to alert the office. File a complaint online or by mail. Call Monday-Friday 304-267-0239, www.wvago.gov

SAIL's creation is rooted in the "Village Movement", a neighbor helping neighbor system developed around the country by seniors who are assisted by other members of their community. SAIL provides members with help going to and from the grocery store and appointments, with simple home repairs, with access to reliable service providers, with organized outings to cultural events, and fun activities such as walking groups, board game and card groups, and more. SAIL membership is open to anyone interested in its services who lives in the 876 and 870 telephone exchanges.
