Move In Day for new students at WFU and Salem College…BBB: Beware of pink donation bags on your mailbox…College team logos on Sonic burger buns? (Thursday News)

Welcome…It’s New and First Year Student “Move In Day” at Wake Forest University and Salem College on Thursday

Not so good news:  Wells Fargo will be laying off over 280 employees in Charlotte.  The company will work with employees to find another position within Wells Fargo or support them as they move on in their careers. Wells Fargo suggesting that consumer demand for mortgage refinancing has decreased since 20-12.  WSOC

Another scam, another warning from the Better Business Bureau:  Beware of pink donation bags that are showing up on mailboxes here in the Triad.  The bag’s flyer claims to be gathering donations for “Hope House” or “Hope for Domestic Violence” for Nspire Outreach of Atlanta.  According to BBB officials, the group has changed its story on where the donations go several times. They have an “F” rating with the BBB.   Bottom line: The BBB says you should only give to organizations you trust.   http://myfox8.com/2013/08/21/better-business-bureau-warns-of-pink-bag-charity-scam/

Team Spirit on a bun?   Sonic drive-in restaurants in the mid-west will be offering a little team spirit this Fall – college football team logos on Sonic burger burns. So far, Sonic has deals with universities in Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana.  The logo stamps, made with tapioca starch and USDA food colorings, are steamed onto the buns from wax paper just before the burgers are served. The college football stamps will add a dime to the price of each burger because Sonic pays both licensing and royalty fees to the universities. Read more: USA Today
