FRAUD ALERT: Dominion Virginia Power Phone Scam
Targets Arlington County Residents
February 28, 2017 - ARLINGTON, Va. – The Arlington County Police Department is warning the public about a Dominion Virginia Power telephone scam targeting Arlington County residents. Citizens have reported receiving unsolicited phone calls from individuals fraudulently claiming to be technicians with Dominion Virginia Power. These individuals accuse the victims of having overdue bills which must be paid immediately or their electricity will be disconnected. The caller then provides a fraudulent claim number and phone number where the funds may be paid. In some cases, scammers have deliberately falsified the information transmitted to the victim’s Caller ID display to disguise their identity. Citizens should not rely on their Caller ID to verify the credibility of the call. Never provide personal information in response to unsolicited calls or if you are at all suspicious. Never use a phone number provided to you from the caller to verify their credibility. Citizens are reminded that Dominion Virginia Power does not call, text or email customers asking for their personal information. For additional fraud prevention tips related to Dominion Virginia Power, visit their website.

Seeking 2017 Home and Garden Tour Homes
Saturday - May 13, 2017
The Fairlington Historical Society’s biennial Home & Garden Tour will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017. This very popular event showcases the architecture, grounds, and the unique homes in our community. We are seeking nominations for tour locations. Since many who attend the tour are looking for renovation ideas, we are especially interested in including homes and gardens that have had major renovations. As in past tours, we hope to include at least one home from each of the Fairlington neighborhoods, with examples of each floor plan type (Braddock, Clarendon, Edgewood, etc.). The committee is also inviting neighbors who can dedicate a little time to help with planning, advertising, fundraising, and ticket sales, as well as serving as guides and helpers on the day of the tour.
If you would like to nominate a home or garden – or would like to volunteer,
please contact Patty Clark (email@example.com) or 703.820.7328
