UPDATE: THE BODY OF CRAIG MORGAN


UPDATE: THE BODY OF CRAIG MORGAN'S SON WAS RECOVERED MONDAY NIGHT
AP Monday July 11, 2016

WAVERLY, Tenn. (AP) — The 19-year-old son of country music entertainer Craig Morgan is missing following a boating accident on the Tennessee River.

Morgan's publicist Cindy Hunt says crews are searching for Jerry Greer in Humphreys County, west of Nashville. Hunt says the family is grateful for support and prayers, but is requesting privacy "during this difficult time."

Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Rod Edwards in that county told local media that the search began around 4 p.m. Sunday near a marina. Edwards says two teenagers were tubing when they had an accident and one teen didn't surface. Both were wearing life jackets.
The Sheriff's Office requested assistance from rescue organizations across the state. About 50 boats joined the search. Authorities say crews were using an underwater vehicle to scan a search on the river where the water is up to 15 feet deep at points.

Consumer Alert: Phishing Email Scam Targets Tennessee Attorneys
tn.gov Monday July 11, 2016

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance’s Division of Consumer Affairs is sharing an alert from the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility that state bars across the nation are receiving reports of an email scam targeting attorneys using false notifications of actions purportedly from attorney regulatory agencies.

In these phishing emails, the lawyer is instructed to click on a link or attachment to view a complaint or pay fees, which then loads a malicious software called ransomware or cryptoware that blocks computer access until a sum of money is paid. Although the Board of Professional Responsibility has not received any reports of Tennessee attorneys receiving these emails, attorneys should be aware of this scam.

“Scam artists are using technology in increasingly insidious ways to harm innocent consumers and taxpayers,” said TDCI Deputy Commissioner Bill Giannini. “Consumers should always be on guard and remember to never click on links in an email that connect to a website unless you are absolutely certain they are authentic.”

The Board does communicate with attorneys by email; however, if you receive an email from the Board of Professional Responsibility with a link, you can identify whether it is legitimate by hovering over the link to see if it displays the Board’s domain, “tbpr.org” near the beginning of the link, or if it displays a different website. If a different website is displayed, delete the email immediately.

If you have questions about the legitimacy of an email, contact the Board at 1-800-486-5714.

 


Consumer Alert: Media, Public Urged to Help Find Unrepaired High-Risk Vehicles
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting Newz Monday July 11, 2016

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance’s Division of Consumer Affairs joins the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in urgently calling on the news media and the public to assist in finding and repairing certain high-risk vehicles with unrepaired air bag inflators before they cause further injuries or fatalities.

The NHTSA has recently announced that new test data on a particular subset of defective Takata air bag inflators in certain model-year 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles show a far higher risk of ruptures during air bag deployment.

The higher-risk inflators are in certain 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles:

2001-2002 Honda Civic
2001-2002 Honda Accord
2002-2003 Acura TL
2002 Honda CR-V
2002 Honda Odyssey
2003 Acura CL
2003 Honda Pilot


The air bag inflators in these particular vehicles contain a manufacturing defect which greatly increases the potential for dangerous rupture when a crash causes the air bag to deploy. Ruptures are far more likely in inflators in vehicles that have spent significant periods of time in areas of high absolute humidity—particularly Florida, Texas, other parts of the Gulf Coast, and Southern California.

Testing of the inflators from these vehicles show rupture rates as high as 50 percent in a laboratory setting.

Drivers of these vehicles should immediately visit SaferCar.gov to check whether their vehicle has any outstanding safety recalls. Those that do should contact their nearest dealer to schedule a no-cost immediate repair. Replacement parts for these vehicles are available immediately.
