The JSA Email Crime Alert entitled “Beware of Callers Faking Identities to Have High-End Orders Shipped,” dated 06/22/17, has received a strong response, and due to the warning in JSA’s Alert, a number of retailers have been able to prevent major losses. JSA thanks JCK and National Jeweler for including excellent articles in their online news regarding the JSA Alert. It should be emphasized that a supplier or retailer should never give out the tracking number of a package that they ship which can then be used by fraud artists to re-direct the package to a location of their choice. Also, always know and confirm who you are actually talking to when taking an order and shipping goods. To see a copy of the Alert, go the JSA website at http://jewelerssecurity.org/widespread-scam-hits-diamond-jewelry-and-watch-industry/

Serving on the board of a non-profit organization can be an honorary position or a full-time job, depending on the scope of the organization and the population it serves. The most desirable board members for an organization are those who can bring attention to the cause, and more importantly attract funding to help the organization do what they do. This is especially crucial in the current political climate for the social service non-profits, as organizations could be facing serious funding cuts for their essential services to vulnerable populations.
