If you own a pistol in the State of New York and your license was issued before January 15, 2013, you will need to submit your re-certification by January 31, 2018.

In this scam, the individual’s e-mail accounts are compromised which allow the hacker to gain information such as closing date, purchase price and identity of the various parties.

It’s often said that good fences make good neighbors and this case proved the maxim.
