Beware of scam messages

Yesterday and today scam messages have been sent to residents of rental housing companies in the purpose of getting the recipient to pay the rent to the wrong account. Scam messages have been sent both as text messages and e-mails. Do not react if you receive a new account number for Mikkelin opiskelija-asunnot Oy (MOAS) by text message or email. The messages are written in fluently Finnish, which do not contain links but there is a new account number.

The account number of Mikkelin opiskelija-asunnot Oy (MOAS) has not changed AND we have not sent messages.

If you have paid the rent to the account mentioned in the scam message, the rent must still be paid normally with the correct payment details to Mikkelin opiskelija-asunnot Oy’s (MOAS’) bank account. Please contact your bank as soon as possible and report the matter to the police.

Preparing for possible power outages in the coming winter

In the coming winter, it is good to be prepared for possible power outages. This does not necessarily apply to all areas, but nevertheless it is worth being prepared. Electricity companies try to announce planned power outages in advance, so it’s worth checking your own to the electricity company’s announcements on the matter. The Ministry of Defense has prepared a guide for longer power outages, the guide can be found e.g. From Fingrid’s website. During a power outage, lighting, heating and ventilation do not work.

During a power outage lasting a couple of hours, the temperature in the apartment does not have time to drop much, but hot water may run out and the water pressure may drop. It is therefore recommended not to leave the house and avoid using water. A flashlight, warm clothes, a battery-powered radio and batteries would be a good idea to keep in case of power outages. Depending on the base stations, mobile phone networks are operational during short power outages. The phone can be charged, e.g. from the powerbank, so it’s worth keeping one in the charging station. Cooking is challenging during a power outage when there is no stove and microwave do not work. It’s also a good idea to reserve well-preserved food and bottled water if the power outage lasts longer.

During a power outage, you should also take care of other people, especially those living alone and the elderly. You must help your neighbor as much as you can. If there is an elevator in the property, you should make sure that no one in need of help is left in the elevator.

All free-to-air channels will still be distributed, but only on different channel numbers. For example, Yle TV1 HD will be found on channel 1 and traditional Yle TV1 will be on channel 21.
