As widely reported in the media, we unfortunately fell victim to fraudulent activity. Upon discovering the missing funds, we took immediate action by contacting the relevant bank and alerting the state police. Both the bank and law enforcement agencies have been exceptionally cooperative, and we are pleased to inform you that the funds have been successfully restored.
This incident remains an active investigation, and it has come to light that individuals from out of state were likely responsible for this crime. Moreover, it appears that several local businesses were targeted in a similar manner, indicating that this was not an isolated incident limited to a single financial institution.
It is important to note that we have robust in-house security measures in place to safeguard our finances. However, this particular attack originated externally, demonstrating the need for continuous vigilance and adaptation in today's digital landscape.
We want to emphasize that both our organization and our dedicated supporters, along with our local community, have put in significant effort to secure the funds that enable us to provide for your protection and meet your needs. Rest assured, we remain committed to safeguarding your interests and maintaining the highest standards of security to prevent any future occurrences of this nature. Thank you for your continued trust and support.
