Be Careful of Email Hoax & More of What You Need to Know Near Albany

Casey Danton, WGNA-FM

New York – Be careful if you received an email with the subject line stating, “Uniform Traffic Ticket.”  The State Police says the email is a hoax and appears to be from the New York State Police or the Los Angeles Department of Motor Vehicles. The email instructs the person to click on a link to open a form to fill out and send to court.  The file is believed to contain a computer virus.  Anyone who receives the email, is advised to click delete and not click any links within the email.


New York – State lawmakers approved Governor Cuomo’s plan to overhaul the state’s tax system, just a day after he made the announcement.  Lawmakers Wednesday approved a package with middle class tax cuts and higher rates for those earning $2 million or more a year.  Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos discussed the plan in classic three-men-in-a-room fashion.  The measure includes elements that offer an incentive for everyone.

Health – The Obama administration in a surprise move, overruled a Food and Drug Administration decision to allow the sale of the morning after pill to anyone without a prescription.  The Plan B One-Step currently is available to women 17 and older without a doctor’s order.  It was proposed that the pill be available to anyone young girl or woman that is sexually active, however; those under the age of 17 will still need a prescription from a doctor.


Niskayuna – A local business manager is accused of embezzling $64,000 over the past five years.  Suzanne Endres of Niskayuna was arrested this week following an investigation into money missing from JBS LLC on Maple Avenue.  The 39-year old office manager has worked for JBS, a small private company involved in structural metal fabrication, since 1995.  Endres allegedly started to teal money about five years ago and covered it up by altering business records.
