For years, scammers have used a small device on ATMs, gas pumps, and other terminals, to harvest credit card information. As technology has improved, this form of “skimming” has become less effective. Now, according to the Better Business Bureau, they use a technique called “e-skimming” to steal credit card data from online shoppers instead.You are shopping online on a reputable website. You put an item in your cart and proceed to check out. You enter your credit or debit card number and your billing address to make your purchase. Everything seems totally normal.But what you can’t see is that cybercriminals have hacked into the company’s server and planted malware on the site. This harvests your personal information, including your credit or debit card numbers, as soon as you make a purchase. You won’t be aware your information was stolen until the company discovers the breach and alerts its customers. In other cases, you’ll only find out after scammers use your credit card and fraudulent purchases appear on your statement.Here are a few ways the BBB recommends on how to protect yourself from E-Skimming:• Keep a close eye on your statements. Check your bank and credit card statements regularly to confirm all charges. If you notice any suspicious activity, call your bank or credit card company immediately to report it. Use the customer service number found on the back of your card or on your monthly statement to make sure you are speaking with the real company.• Make online purchases with a credit card. Use your credit card instead of your debit card to make online purchases. It is much easier to dispute charges made with your credit card, plus getting money returned to your debit card can take time.• Consider using a virtual credit card. Some credit card companies and banks offer virtual cards to their clients. These provide a unique credit card number to use when shopping online that links to your normal account. If any unusual transactions are made or the number is compromised, other charges are immediately declined.

By Liz Sheehan |MIDDLETOWN – After issuing the first lease on a building in historic Fort Hancock on Sandy Hook in Gateway National Recreation Area last year, the committee formed in 2012 to plan for the fort’s future now has letters of intent to lease eight other buildings at the fort.At its meeting Friday at the Thompson Park Visitor Center, Lincroft, members of the Fort Hancock 21st Century Advisory Committee received a report from National Park Service (NPS) officials detailing the issuing of letters of intent for the buildings, the process by which potential lessees and the park service enter into discussions on lease terms.The leases for five of the buildings, which were previously used by the U.S. Army as a gas station, bakery, mule barn, and sergeants’ and officers’ quarters, are now being discussed by the NPS with Joseph Kachinsky Jr. and Rudolph Wobito, according to the park service.Kachinsky is a construction official in Middletown who conducts building assessments on Sandy Hook, but will not inspect the buildings he is involved in leasing. Instead, an inspector for Atlantic Highlands or another nearby town will do those inspections.Neither Kachinsky nor Wobito could be reached for comment about the buildings.The project manager and architect for the nonprofit Affordable Housing Alliance advocacy group, serving Monmouth County, have met with the park service concerning the building that was formerly bachelor officers’ quarters to discuss the NPS approval process and historic preservation and interim preservation plan, the park service said. Meyer Pincelli, director of capital projects at the Affordable Housing Alliance, said they would use the house to create several one-bedroom affordable housing units.Representatives for The Monmouth County Vocational School District, which operates the Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) high school, have also met with the park officials. They are interested in a former mess hall and barracks, according to the park service. The leases for the buildings run for 60 years and the park service would charge a fair market monthly rate, which would be offset by the funds which the lessee invests in renovating the building. A fee would also be charged by the park service for road maintenance, garbage collection, landscaping and other services. The first five lessees will not be charged the fee, according to the NPS. Lessees would pay taxes to Middletown.At the public portion of the meeting, Dan Ferrise of Monmouth Beach said he had looked at some of the properties offered for a lease. The main issue concerning the leases, he said, are the taxes, which the lessee would have no control over. He asked what services a lessee would receive from Middletown for taxes paid. Committee member Anthony Mercantante, the Middletown township administrator, said the lessees would be able to use the township’s schools, police emergency services, library, recreational and other services. He said the assessments of the buildings at the fort were a third or less than comparable properties in the rest of the township because they would not include the value of the land.Mercantante said there would be other considerations in the assessments such as the traffic problems at the fort when the roads were congested during the summer season.He also said state law mandated taxes be placed on the properties.A table provided by the NPS listing the assessed value of the properties and the fair market rent for them showed the assessed value for the officers’ quarters included in the letters of intent of Kachinsky and Wobito was $15,400 with a monthly rent of $1,100. But the assessed value for the noncommissioned officers duplex that was leased last year and has been renovated is $238,400 with a rent of $2,100.In 1999, the park service issued a 60-year lease to Jim Wassel, a developer from Rumson, to renovate and commercially develop more than 36 buildings at the fort. A local group called Save Sandy Hook was formed to oppose the plan. The NPS cancelled the Wassel lease in 2009, after the developer was not able to show he had the financial ability to rehabilitate the buildings.The advisory committee was formed in 2012 to plan how to restore the buildings at the fort. Twenty-three members, including local officials, were appointed to the committee.

Kolnoski “Approximately 50percent of the Army’s overall utilities are being replaced with new, which is abig milestone for us,” said Bruce Steadman, FMERA executive director. “We havea budget to eliminate and replace all old utilities.” Steadman said the primarygoal “is to replace the 8,000 jobs lost when the Army left. Our goal is 10,000jobs. It will take several more years to bring back all the tax ratables. Weproject $1 billion in tax ratables for the three towns within five to eightyears.” The former U.S. Army base spans portions of Eatontown, Oceanport andTinton Falls.

Mercantante said a make-over for the bus stop is integral for commercial and, most importantly, safety purposes. “There are some great small businesses and restaurants that have moved into the junction over the last decade and some that have called it home for a lot longer than I’ve been here. It should be treated like a Main Street. Too many cars come speeding through, which is a safety concern. But if speed limits were reduced, it would also give drivers an opportunity to slow down and see what’s around,” Yahara said. Today Campbell’s Junction is a commercial center with restaurants, specialty retail shops, a brewery and residences. An NJ Transit bus stop still exists on Garfield Avenue. Photo by Patrick Olivero Though concept plans are still being developed, Middletown Mayor Tony Perry said the vision is a multifaceted initiative to enhance infrastructure as a means to improve mass transportation and traffic flow near the Leonardville Road corridor that cuts through the heart of the area. According to township administrator Anthony P. Mercantante, a grant application will be submitted to the New Jersey Department of Transportation requesting funding for the Campbell’s Junction Redevelopment Project. “Since its earliest days Campbell’s Junction has been a thriving commercial center and that tradition continues today. We believe this project will only enhance the area for our current business owners and encourage new businesses to move in, especially small businesses,” Perry said. “If we can improve the flow of pedestrian traffic and public transportation to the area, it’s not only a benefit to the members of the surrounding community and residents of Middletown, but you’re creating easier access for those in surrounding communities. It will be great for the businesses already there and make the junction attractive for new businesses,” Perry said. MIDDLETOWN – More than a century ago Campbell’s Junction was nothing more than a simple trolley stop beside a cornfield. “We may look at widening that roadway to create a space for two buses to load up at the same time. Everything is conceptual right now. But we need to make it safer. There hasn’t been a significant incident at that site, but we don’t want to wait until there is. We want to be proactive,” Mercantante said. A NJ Transit bus stop is currently situated on Garfield Avenue, a small extension of junction roadway squeezed between two residential properties and Leonardville Road. Justin Yahara, the owner and manager of Swagger Barbershop, launched his business in Campbell’s Junction in 2009 and said he hopes the traffic element of the redevelopment plan includes a mechanism to reduce speed limits in the area. “There are two or three bus routes that have a junction point there. Sometimes they arrive around the same time and there is not an officially designated place for commuters to wait and board or for the buses to park,” said Mercantante. He described the creation of a formal loading point with a shelter and a more organized route for buses to arrive and depart from the location. Perry said the junction has become a more attractive spot for new, small businesses to thrive, and pointed to the expansion of Belford Brewing Company, a craft beer operation on Leonardville Road that launched in August 2014. In 2016, the brewery expanded its footprint and acquired a second storefront for an additional tasting room. The area’s history is rooted in mass transportation. Around 1904, Derek G. Campbell sold a portion of his cornfield to the Jersey Central Traction Company. The streetcar company promptly laid down tracks to connect lines from Keyport to Highlands and Red Bank. In the late 1910s a bus terminal and gas station were added to the trolley depot. In 1923, the trolley depot was converted to a full-time bus terminal. Today Middletown officials say they are developing a new vision for the first business district in township history and the municipality’s only commercial hub not located on a major state highway.
