Email Scams Apr 30, 2021

The District Attorney’s Office has become aware of a scam involving unsolicited emails that are seemingly sent from legitimate, well-established banks and businesses. The email encourages recipients to click on a link to win a prize or another type of reward.

PLEASE BE AWARE, these emails are often not from the businesses listed and people who select the reward may be tricked into making unnecessary purchases or expenditures. To prevent these scams, check the sender’s email address to see if it matches the business’s. Often the sender’s email address will not even resemble the business name. Be cautious about clicking links or opening attachments in an email that you are not expecting, especially when the sender’s email address is suspicious. When in doubt, verify the email solicitation by going to the website for the business in question or contacting its customer service telephone number.

Please report potential scam emails or text messages to the FTC at www.ReportFraud.ftc.gov

Raising Leaders Legacy Apr 1, 2021

Raising Leaders is the brainchild of Davita Scott. Years back, Ms. Scott was employed by Hayward Adult Education and was assigned to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Justice Academy.

They have been in the criminal justice system, foster care and homeless shelters. Many are parents. All of them grew up in poverty and were unable to succeed in traditional school due to tough circumstances and behavioral issues.

Intimate partner violence doesn’t just affect adults, but also any children that are exposed to violence. Studies show that children who have witnessed domestic violence have trauma similar to that of a soldier who has witnessed war. Home is not always a safe place, but it's never too late to reach out for help:

A gun in a domestic violence household dramatically increases the risk of homicide. Even if it’s never fired, a gun can be used to harass, threaten, and intimidate. If you are aware of someone who has a firearm and has been convicted of a felony, a domestic violence charge, or may be subject to a restraining order, call your local police department or the ATF tip line at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (283-4867) or ATFTips@atf.gov.
