Special Fraud Alert!

I just spoke with some people who informed me of a scam they were hit with in late 2017. Are you sitting down? This will astonish you….and make you MAD. Here’s the story.

They live here and were in the process of purchasing some property in California. In that regard, they were working with a realtor down there. They had been in touch for months looking for properties, examining properties, etc. So, getting emails from the realtor was quite common and expected. They had finally identified a property that they wanted to buy and were exchanging emails with the realtor many times getting information, negotiating, etc.

On a Friday, they got an email telling them that the realtor was sick that day and the realtor’s assistant would be in touch with them that day to arrange the down payment situation. The closing was supposed to happen the next Monday, so all seemed in order. Nothing unusual going on here.

Spring break is here. Before taking that road trip make sure you check out your vehicle. Tires should not be showing their wear bars, and should be inflated to the proper pressure. Driving your car with under inflated tires not only lowers your gas mileage, but can cause excess wear causing a blow out. If you are towing a trailer you should also check it’s tires. We often forget about our trailers due to their infrequent use. Another good thing to check on your trailers is the wheel bearings. They should be checked before any lengthy trip.

Lip Injections: Everything you need to knowA plump pout is universally synonymous with youth, and an icon of sensuality. Lip augmentation is a simple, in-office procedure with little to no downtime, and easily one of the highest rated patient satisfaction procedures we do in our office, with virtually instant results and gratification.
As we grow older, the lips become thinner and fine vertical lines appear, making lipstick bleed. Fortunately, there are various lip augmentation techniques available. At Oregon Coast Plastic Surgery, we use a conservative eye and approach to achieve beautiful results. Whether you’re looking for natural, subtle volume, softening of the perioral lines, or an instant, noticeable plump, we’ve got you covered.
