STMA Website Information Sessions
Members of the website committee will be available to answer any questions new residents might have about the STMA website or those who have been using the website and want to learn some short cut tips in using the site. They will be at the Pink Palace on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 for three sessions:
- 2-3 pm
- 3:30-4:30 pm
- 5-6 pm
- Sign-up Deadline – January 14, 2020!
We ask that you sign up for one of these sessions so their time can be planned appropriately. Please note a password is not required to access the website except for the Member Directory and the Financial information. For these sessions, if you do not already have a userid & password to log into the website, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the class so we can set up your userid and password. This will help us to address all of your questions in the allotted time instead of using our limited time setting up passwords. Please feel free to bring your laptop, tablet and/or smart phone.
Also these sessions are for OUR website ONLY. These are NOT for specific computer support and issues that do not pertain to the STMA website.
FUTURE IDEA: The STMA Board is investigating the possibility of providing computer training sessions to answer general questions about your devices at a later date.
How to Recognize and Avoid Phishing Scams
Scammers use email or text messages to trick you into giving them your personal information. But there are several things you can do to protect yourself.
Scammers use email or text messages to trick you into giving them your personal information. They may try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could gain access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful. The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center reported that people lost $57 million to phishing schemes in one year.

Email Scams & Fraud
Have you ever received an email requesting valuable personal, confidential or financial information, threatening legal or financial harm, or from a friend or colleague asking for money?
This is a scam called “Phishing.” Phishing is a fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in electronic communication. Typically carried out by email spoofing or instant messaging, it often directs users to enter personal information at a fake website which matches the look and feel of the legitimate site. Once that information is submitted, your are now compromised. DO NOT “click” on any links or buttons within such an email. Go directly to the source such as a Netflix, Bank Account or other types of online accounts you may have. Also, never REPLY to the email.
