Sunapee 2018—Volunteering & Raffle Donations

June 6, 2018
News: General News, Sunapee

We offer two main ways to sign up to sell tickets, help set up the tent, demonstrate, or volunteer for one of your subgroups and other jobs.

Volunteer Option 1:
Go to the Guild's easy-to-use online signup site.

Once there, you’ll see a list of jobs with dates and times. You can see which slots are open or filled. To sign up, you only need to provide your name and email. You’ll get a confirmation email from the website service afterwards.

Please recognize that the online schedule is not the final schedule -- it may be necessary for subgroup leaders or other organizers to move volunteers around for various reasons. If that impacts your signup, you will be contacted.

Volunteer Option 2:
You can call or email Al Hansen at (603) 731-2193 or Dave Foote at (603) 335- 1105. We will sign you up.

And of course, you can talk with your subgroup and other Guild leaders for this event.

Your Donations (Raffle Items)
If you will be donating your work for the raffle please call or email Al Hansen at (603) 731-2193

I get emotional as I reflect on your generosity and skill. The past few years we have had to add an extra table. I wish you could hear the excitement when I call to tell someone they have won a raffle item.

I continue to consider myself fortunate to belong to this organization. I look forward to spending time with so many friends.

Thank you all, Al Hansen

Be Aware of Scammers
Answering These Ads!

Please be aware that there is a scammer answering these ads. Be careful!!!!

I recommend that you only take CASH or checks from people you know. Very little of the stuff that is advertised is so rare or such a great deal that someone would hire an “agent” to ship it.

BE CAREFUL!!!!

HOW THIS SCAM WORKS

If you are selling something online, as a business or through classifieds ads, you may be targeted by an overpayment scam.

The scammer will contact you, make you an offer—often quite generous—then make payment through credit card or cheque. They will be for an amount that is greater than the agreed price.

The scammer will contact you with an apology for the overpayment, offering a fake excuse. The scammer might tell you that the extra money was included to cover agent’s fees or extra shipping costs. Or they may just say they simply made a mistake when writing the cheque.

The scammer will then ask you to refund the excess amount or they will ask for you to forward the amount through to a third party. They will ask for this to through an online banking transfer, pre-loaded money card, or a wire transfer such as Western Union. You then discover that their cheque has bounced or the credit card had been a stolen or fake card.

A newer variation on this scam involves online sales, usually through classified sites, where the scammer pretends to have made a payment for a larger than agreed amount through services such as PayPal by sending a fake receipt of payment. The scammer will claim that the money is being held until you forward on the extra money.

If you send any money, you will not get it back. If you have already sent the ‘sold’ item you will lose this as well. At the very least, the scammer will have wasted your time and prevented you from accepting any legitimate offers on your sale.

I just wanted other Sellers to be careful as I see some valuable machines for sale here.
