Bangor Police Warn About Internet Scams

BANGOR - Bangor Police are warning about a scam seeking to get peoples money. They say when making any kind of financial transaction online, many put themselves at risk of being targeted by thieves.
 
That's something that nearly happened to one Bangor woman. She used Craigslist looking to find an apartment to rent.  She received a phone call about the listing... but it appeared to be from Nigeria. Then when the price of the apartment deposit kept changing, out of skepticism, she contacted the police.
 
The woman also contacted a friend who is a realtor.  That friend told her that the apartment listed on craigs-list was actually a listing through his own agency. Police say you should never give out your personal information online unless you know it's to someone you can trust.

Manna's Christmas Day Festivities

BANGOR - For many, Christmas day is a time for family and friends to come together and spend time with their loved ones.  However, for others it can be a darker time of year.  So Manna Ministries pulled together to shine some light on those in need.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Bangor rec center Tuesday afternoon to take part in a very Manna Christmas.
 
Between a delicious Christmas meal, a singing Santa, and gifts being passed around to children young and old a like, it certainly made for a joyous occasion. Manna however, does understand that Tuesday's festivities mean more than quick meal and some holiday cheer.
 
It is a message of love and care to those in need, and while many may not be able to afford their own gifts and holiday meal, they are grateful that Manna is there to step in... treating all attendees with dignity and respect.
 
 
BANGOR - Christmas day means a lot of good food, but it doesn't always have to be homemade.
 
While many people do stay home for the traditional Christmas meal, others chose to dine out. Picking some of their own favorite restaurants in Bangor that were still open today.  Enjoying a less traditional, but still very filling meal with family and friends.
 
They say it is better than having to cook and clean a whole meal, and that afterwards they still get together at someones home for dessert, play games, and be merry.
 
Happy China Buffet, Dysart's, and Oriental Jade, as well as some other Bangor favorites, were all open today serving hungry customers.
