Consumer fees associated with online utility bill payments could derail the Borough of Waynesboro’s effort to offer the service to its customers. Assistant Borough Manager Jason Cohen updated the Waynesboro Borough Council on an initiative to offer electronic methods of payment for water, sewer and trash bills. Customers could pay using credit cards, debit cards and electronic checks. Customers choosing to pay online, rather than mail or drop off payments, face a $3.50 fee per transaction, Cohen said.

A Baltimore County man could face a minimum of 10 years in prison after a Washington County Circuit Court jury convicted him this week of robbing a Hagerstown area jewelry store in 2008. Bashawn Moneak Montgomery, 33, of Reisterstown was also convicted on Monday of second-degree assault and several theft and credit-card offenses. The jury, however, found him not guilty of false imprisonment in the June 8, 2008, robbery at King’s Jewelry in Valley Mall. Assistant State’s Attorney Christopher McCormack said he will ask the court to impose an enhanced sentence because Montgomery has a previous conviction for a violent crime, a 2003 armed robbery in Baltimore City.

Planning ahead and involving the family increases the chances you will identify all the possibilities and think about which are most important.

“There is apparently a new scam going on. Someone will call and tell you in very broken English that you’ve won cash and gift cards. ... It is usually a person that you cannot understand, and you have to ask them numerous times what they are saying, and then all of a sudden they will ask you for a credit card number, which you can understand very well. It comes up on your caller ID as 0, at least it did on mine. Don’t be caught in this trap, and most of all, keep your credit card in your pocket.
