Don’t Get Tricked by Fake Package Delivery Confirmations

Published

on

(ABC7) — As last-minute holiday packages arrive, watch out for fake delivery notifications.

These fake shipping or delivery confirmations arrive via email or text. UPS issued this warning about the scam. Here are a few examples of fraud notifications.

Scammers make it appear they’re with UPS, the US Postal Service, and other delivery companies. The key is to not click on any links. The invalid links may contain malware, which could potentially corrupt your computer or phone.

If you get an email you’re not sure of, always look at the sender address as that is typically a red flag. Also, look for misspelling or poor grammar.

The scammers will include pictures, and wording from legit delivery companies, so don’t be fooled. Another big red flag is if you’re asked for any type of payment […]

LOS ANGELES (Daily News) — With restaurants limited to takeout service or shut down completely by the coronavirus outbreak, a drive has been launched to keep some of Los Angeles’ legendary eateries from fading away.

Known as 1933 Group, the team operates about a dozen themed bars and restaurants in Los Angeles, including the barrel-shaped bar Idle Hour in North Hollywood, Harlowe in West Hollywood, Highland Park Bowl and the Formosa Cafe in West Hollywood.

Many of them have shuttered in recent days amid strict orders implemented by Gov. Gavin Newsom and Mayor Eric Garcetti, aiming to stem the flow of deadly COVID-19.

“We are struggling to survive,” said Dimitri Komarov, the venues’ co-owner. “The impact is dire. We’re losing our […]

(ABC7) — Target is cutting back its hours and introducing dedicated shopping time for “vulnerable guests,” the company announced Tuesday.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, Target stores will close by 9 p.m. local time daily to allow more time for cleaning and restocking overnight. Any stores that normally close before 9 p.m. will continue to close at their regularly scheduled closing time.

The retailer said it is fast-tracking high-demand items in its supply chain as well as adding extra payroll hours focused specifically on cleaning and sanitation. Customer-facing touchpoints will be cleaned at least every 30 minutes going forward.

Target is also closing Target Cafés, Pizza Huts, Snack Bars, Beverage Bars, Starbucks seating areas and condiment stations in stores until further notice. RELATED: How is […]

Costco Yanking Food Court Seating, But Still Selling Dogs & Pop

Published

on

By

(TMZ) — Costco’s been packed to the gills lately — and to get folks the hell out of their warehouses ASAP … certain locations aren’t even giving you the option to park it anymore for a bite.



Check out these photos TMZ got of the Costco location out in Arlington, VA — just a stone’s throw from D.C. — where they’ve got their act together down to a tee … especially in the food court area, where they’ve yanked all the dining room tables that are normally there.

As you can see … the area in front of the pick-up window — which is usually designated for seating — has been completely cleared. Heck, even most of the food options are limited … looks like their hot dog and soda special is one of the few things you can grab to go (emphasis on go).

When it comes to the other survival staples members have been clamoring for these past few days — it appears the Arlington location lets you know from the jump what’s available … and what isn’t. They got signs out front indicating which products are in stock.

It’s certainly efficient, and right on brand with Costco as a whole. With lines wrapping around the building, it looks like the honchos figured out easy ways to save people time and headaches — especially when it comes to post-spree meals people might wanna indulge in.

Measures like pulling the dining tables are happening at several different locations across the country — and pretty soon … most of them might very well be doing this.

So, don’t consider Costco a place to casually shop and nosh — it’s turned into In-N-Out these days. Hop to it now!
