RCA Upgrading Its Email Service – Are You on It?

To get on that list and receive periodic alerts from RCA just send your email address, name and contact information to info@rosemontca.org and we will add you to the list. Unfortunately our email service crashed some while ago and we are still rebuilding the list. We are in the process of making a major overhaul of both our email system and our website, so things should be much better by mid-year.

SMUD Sponsoring Trout Derby

ALERT: Credit Card Scamming Continues
Apparently there has been a credit card scam going around in which you get a call from a person purporting to be from your credit card company’s fraud investigation unit asking to verify a charge made to your card. He already has most of your card and personal info, but just asks for the security number on the back. If you provide that, suddenly your card IS hit with the fraudulent charge. So again, NEVER give out any personal or financial information over the phone unless you know for a fact with whom you are speaking. Even then it is better to place the call yourself to your card company’s fraud unit to verify the problem and have them advise on how to remedy the breach of your security.

And it is also helpful to verify any suspicious story, request or deal by researching it on www.snopes.com, which tracks and reports on all sorts of scams and frauds, and can verify whether some stories or urban legends are true or not.

Rosemont Leads in Generosity
Did you know that Rosemont is relatively the most generous neighborhood in the Sacramento area? That’s right, Rosemont residents (including the surrounding areas in the 95826 zip code) give more to charities than even neighborhoods with much higher average incomes. The Sacramento Business Journal reported “While taxpayers who itemize have average household incomes of about $84,000, the (Rosemont) area ranks No. 1 in giving, with average donations of over $3,000. That's more than the average donation from households in East Sacramento, where incomes are 68 percent higher.” That calculates to a rate of 3.59%. Way to go Rosemont! Click HERE for the full Business Journal article and a chart of comparisons.
Oh, yes! Remember if you make your donations to the Rosemont Community Foundation then all of your money will stay here in your community to work for you! You can easily make your year-end donation by clicking on the "Join RCA Now" link at the top of the page and then selecting the "Donate" link.

REPORT!!!
If you see something that seems suspicious or wrong, PLEASE REPORT IT to the Sac Sheriff’s Department (874-5115, unless it is a real emergency, then call 874-5111 or 911). It just might be the bit of information or person they need to solve a crime, even if you aren’t sure of its significance. At the least, it alerts law enforcement to a problem, and reminds them that Rosemont residents are not willing to let bad things happen here.
