A Donegal Daily reader has notified us of an Apple scam doing the rounds.The harmless-looking email claims that your account is “automatically locked” due to “an unusual transaction attempt on your Apple account,” and prompts you to follow a link to ‘Verify Your Account’. At first glance the email seems legitimate, but if you look at the email receipt of who it’s from, the scammer’s email is very long and nonsensical.Phishing, the act of attempting to obtain sensitive information, has become popular in Ireland, with scammers pretending to be the Revenue Commission, iTunes, and even AIB throughout the year.If you encounter a suspicious email, you should ignore, delete, and report the email.Apple says to look out for the following if you suspect an email is bogus: The sender’s email address or phone number doesn’t match the name of the company that it claims to be from.Your email address or phone number is different from the one that you gave that company.The message starts with a generic greeting, like “Dear customer.” Most legitimate companies will include your name in their messages to you.A link appears to be legitimate but takes you to a website whose URL doesn’t match the address of the company’s website.*The message looks significantly different from other messages that you’ve received from the company.The message requests personal information, like a credit card number or account password.The message is unsolicited and contains an attachment.For more tips on avoiding scams, visit Apple’s guide “Avoid phishing emails, fake ‘virus‘ alerts, phony support calls, and other scams.” Beware of bogus Apple email as scammers target Donegal was last modified: September 4th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Applefake emailphishingscam
About 4,150 long-term care clients have received updated information on adjustments to what they pay for long-term care accommodations. The adjustments are based on increases in the cost of operating facilities, changes in individual incomes, and increases to the old age security/guaranteed income supplement program. No long-term care client will face an increase of more than $3.50 per day. “Annual rate reviews and adjustments are necessary to ensure that residents continue to receive quality care at a fair price,” said Chris d’Entremont, Minister of Health. Letters explaining the revised rates were mailed by the Department of Health to home administrators, long-term care residents and people with powers of attorney on Sept. 25. Long-term care clients waiting for placement in a home will receive their letters this month. Effective Nov. 1, the standard accommodation charge for a nursing home increased to $79 per day, up from $75.50 per day. The daily standard accommodation charge for a residential care facility increased to $50.50 from $49. The daily standard accommodation charge for a community-based option increased to $46.50 from $46. The daily respite charge in long-term care increased to $29.75 per day from $28.70. The Department of Health also adjusted two income related areas effective Nov. 1, in keeping with this year’s increase to the federal government’s old age security/guaranteed income supplement. Single seniors are able to retain 15 per cent of their income or $2,652, whichever is greater, before they pay accommodation charges. This reflects an $96 increase in the minimum retained income amount. Couples who cannot pay the standard accommodation charges will also keep more of their money. Spouses who live in the community can retain $15,992 per year. That is an increase of $947 per year to the spousal income threshold amount. The department’s 2006-07 budget for long-term care services is about $342.9 million.
