PROTECT YOURSELF FROM SCAMS

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM SCAMS

Another scam that is going around is a caller identifying themselves as an FPL employee. The caller claims that you must obtain a green card and send to them otherwise your electricity will be disconnected. FPL does not contact you asking for money.

NEVER FALL FOR THIS. IF A CALLER ADVISES YOU THAT YOU MUST GET A GREEN CARD, AN I-TUNE CARD, OR ANY KIND OF MONEY ORDER HANG UP.

The IRS will never call you on the phone and state you must pay or be arrested.

A Law Enforcement Agency will never call and say there is a warrant for your arrest but if you pay they will dismiss it.

If someone says they need your help to cash a check because they have no ID, SAY NO and walk away or hang up the phone.

If someone contacts you that your grandson/granddaughter is in jail and needs bond money, STOP, contact other relatives and verify if your loved one is in jail.

The Social Security Administration will not contact you and ask for money.

If someone claims they have won the lottery and need your help to collect the money, walk away or hang up the phone.

IF SOMETHING SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS.

BEFORE you fall for one of these scams, contact the Sheriff’s Office 863-763-3117.

Brighton Field Day Festival & Rodeo To Celebrate 80th Anniversary  February 16-18 Will Feature Colt Ford Concert

 

WHAT:            Celebrating 80 years, the Brighton Field Day Festival & Rodeo will take place at the Fred Smith Rodeo Arena on the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation in Okeechobee, Florida.

Many Seminole favorites will return including PRCA Rodeo, Professional Bull Riders, clothing contests, American Indian arts & crafts and native foods. Attendees may also visit the Seminole Culture Camp where a living Seminole Indian Village will be on display.

Entertainment will include a Saturday evening concert by country rapper, singer and songwriter, Colt Ford. A former professional golfer, Ford released his sixth album last May titled Love Hope Faith, which includes the single “4 Lane Gone.”

The weekend will also feature native dance troupes from neighboring tribes, storytelling, alligator wrestling and a snake show.

Additionally, there will be a parade featuring members of Florida State University’s marching band, along with Osceola aboard Renegade, recognized as the best athletic tradition in the nation.

Attendees can visit the sponsor-driven Pro Rodeo Fan Zone on the way into the arena. The rodeo grounds will have a variety of crafts and food vendors for all to enjoy.

HISTORY:       Brighton Field Day started in November of 1938. William and Edith Boehmer, two teachers who were residing on the Brighton reservation, got the idea to start a “day of fun.” It initially was meant to be a day for Tribal community members to visit, but now thousands of visitors join Seminole Tribal members in this annual celebration.
