Ombudsman Seminars

The Office of the Ombudsman kicked off its 2010 Outreach last week with Basics for Board Members, a concise summary of the expectations incumbent upon all Nevada HOA directors. 

For those who were unable to enroll in last week’s session, you are invited to enroll in upcoming sessions on February 11th, March 20th, April 20th or May 21st in Las Vegas.

While the class is geared toward board members, non-board members are welcome to enroll as well.

Anyone who is interested in attending should register by contacting Nicholas Haley at nhaley@red.state.nv.us or by calling 702-486-4480.

Helping Haiti

Although there are legitimate organizations looking to help earthquake victims in Haiti, there are just as many scammers out there looking to take advantage of your generosity. 

Not every so-called charity is what it claims to be. Nevada’s Fight Fraud Taskforce is warning consumers to be cautious when giving.

When making donations, the Attorney General’s Office offers some suggestions:

· Give directly to the charity of your choice
·  Be wary of sound-alike names or phrases such as “Angel Fund" or “Emergency Give”
·  It’s okay to ask questions
·  A legitimate charity will never pressure you to make donations

To check the legitimacy of a charity, visit CharityNavigator.com or GuideStar.com.
