VETERANS BEWARE OF SCAMMERS THIS VETERAN’S DAY

As we honor those who have served our country this Veterans Day, know that scammers go to great lengths to target their money, their benefits, and their commitment to current and former soldiers.

How It Works:

Targeting veterans can take many forms:

The Cash for Benefits Scheme: Predatory lenders target veterans in need of money by offering
cash in exchange for future disability or pension payments. These buyouts are typically a fraction of the value of the benefit.

The Update Your Military File Scam: A caller claims to be from the Department of Veterans
Affairs and asks to “update” your information, but really is hoping to get personal information to steal your credit.

Charity Scams: A caller claims to be raising money for disabled veterans or veterans
with cancer. But often, the so-called charity is not registered with the government and/or uses most of the money to raise more funds and pay their salaries.

Veterans Choice Program Scam: Scammers set up a phone number nearly identical to the
number veterans dial to find out if they are eligible to use approved health care providers outside of the VA system. The person answering the phone tells the caller of a rebate he can get by supplying credit card information. Make sure to dial the correct
number for the VCP: 1-866-606-8198.

What You Should Know:

If you are a veteran, you are unfortunately a target, so be mindful of this reality in your day-to-day transactions.

Former Jersey City Mayor Frank Hague’s Desk on Display At Jersey City City Hall

Mayor Frank Hague's desk
Mayor Frank Boss Hague’s infamous desk

 

RVO Staff Writer

Once the Janitor of the very institution he would later run for over 30 years, Mayor Frank Hague Jersey City’s longest Mayor is a legend in United States Politics.

He helped elect Presidents, was friends with celebrities, sports legends and gangsters of the era.

Both loved,  hated and feared by the people of Jersey City Frank Hague made things happen for Jersey City

Many things

Some say for a price and some say he used his desk as away  to make things happen.

Hudson County legend has it that Mayor Hague’s desk enabled the Mayor the ability to collect pay-offs (if that is true) without ever having to physically take the envelope  himself.  Supposedly  as  Boss Hague  sat behind his desk, meeting visitors he would  enable a  secret draw to pop out the front of his desk, from the back where he sat,  allowing monies to be collected without ever  accepting the money by hand.

Having heard of this desk growing up in the then gritty and tough streets of Jersey City’s post Hague era ,  then  run by John V. Kenny and others, and still a mighty machine. Hague’s desk was the stuff of legends to us kids.

As a young man I would picture him sitting there stiff collar, dressed to the nines, smiling, laying down the law and  popping out that secret draw in his infamous desk.

Recently on a visit to Jersey City’s City Hall, tucked in a corner   on the 2nd floor across from the City Council Chambers, is Boss Hague’s desk on display.

Expertly made, with the best wood, obviously handcrafted and if true, somewhere inside that secret draw. 

Studying  Mayor Hague’s desk  I thought if only this desk could talk what stories it would tell of a Jersey City long gone and what it took and needed to run it back then.

Those days  have past and Jersey City is far ahead into the 21st Century and doing very well. 

And still with all there is to do and see in Jersey City today, I was happy to step back in time and see Mayor Hague’s desk.

But I did leave wondering where’s  is that secret draw or two?
