Local Law Enforcement Warns Against Hurricane Harvey Scams

Local Law Enforcement Warns Against Hurricane Harvey Scams

The Altadena Sheriff’s Station has issued a warning against cybercriminals who are using relief operations for victims of hurricane Harvey to scam people.

In its Facebook post, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station said scammers are now attempting to trick people into clicking links on Facebook and Twitter that are supposed to help send relief to flood victims.

Instead however, links contain malware and lead the unsuspecting to scam websites.

The Station’s statement added that phishing emails that appear in a user’s inbox asking for donations carry the #HurricaneHarvey hashtag.

Online users are urged by the Altadena Sheriff Station to vet any non-profit group first at  https://www.charitynavigator.org before sending any relief for hurricane Harvey victims.

It also advised that relief efforts should also be done through the local Red Cross or Salvation Army chapters ( http://bit.ly/2wcT9dS and www.redcross.org).

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Warning system has issued a similar warning to online users.

“Altadena” Reprise This Weekend at the Norton Simon Museum

“Altadena” Reprise This Weekend at the Norton Simon Museum

Pianist and composer Richard Sears is bringing his septet – and legendary jazz drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath – to the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena this Saturday, August 26, to reprise “Altadena,” a suite commissioned by the Los Angeles Jazz Society in 2013 to honor Heath.

Born on May 31, 1935 in Philadelphia, Tootie Heath was raised in a musical household as the younger brother of saxophonist Jimmy Heath and bassist Percy Heath. In pursuit of a musical career as a drummer, he moved to New York in 1957 and in a few months made his recording debut with John Coltrane for the saxophonist’s first recording “Coltrane.” Heath recorded with him again in 1960 on the album “Lush Life.”

A long-time Altadena resident, Heath’s career reads like a who’s who in jazz. He has recorded with Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins, Nina Simone, Bobby Timmons, Yusef Lateef, Herbie Hancock, Milt Jackson, Wes Montgomery, Billy Taylor, Mal Waldron, Cedar Walton, J.J. Johnson and countless others.
