Joe Moody: Trustee Candidate Nick Episcopia's Personal Email Hacked

Resident Joe Moody, corresponding secretary of the Eastern Property Owners' Association, submitted the following letter.

I am supporting Nick Episcopia in his campaign to be re-elected as village trustee from the East.

I asked him directly about the following, and on his behalf I feel it is necessary to make a couple of points crystal clear to everyone.

Within the last week, Nick's personal email account has been hacked twice by an unknown party. In turn, this person has also created a fraudulent Facebook account under the name "Nicholas Episcopia" which Nick's campaign has managed to deactivate. This bogus Facebook profile is not to be confused with Nick's actual Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NickEpiscopia) which is run by his campaign volunteers.

Establishing a fraudulent Facebook account is classified as "criminal impersonation" under the NYS penal code and a Class A misdemeanor. A formal complaint is being filed with the proper law enforcement authorities.

There have been comments posted on the Garden City Patch insinuating that under a handle, Nick has been posting negative comments about his opponent. Obviously, this is completely fabricated.

If you have any questions regarding these matters, please contact me at jmoody8328@aol.com and I will ask Mr. Episcopia to respond to your questions. Thank you and we hope to see you at the polls voting for Nick Episcopia on Jan. 31.

(Editor's Note: Joe Moody is corresponding secretary of the Eastern Property Owners' Association.)

Sorry this is Nothing New, hacking is all too common! Just as long as there is no financial loss! Where is the succession plan? Either candidate says nothing on it.
