Philly Residents Can Expect Troublesome Weather 

Everyone hates bad weather, but unfortunately, this is exactly what residents of Philadelphia can expect on Thursday lasting until Friday the next day. While this will likely only affect residents who live in the northern and western parts of Philadelphia, residents are still advised to take extra care when traveling. It will come as good news though that mass power outages are unlikely, and there shouldn’t be too much disruption as sleet and freezing rain begins to fall over the city. While some people will no doubt need to go out during this time, those who stay at home will be able to avoid the worst of the bad weather. Given the context of the last couple of years, people are no strangers to spending an extended amount of time in the home, but there is no doubt that people have gotten used to this after realizing that a variety...

CNB Consumer News: IRS Criminal Investigation issues 10 tips to avoid tax season fraud    

PHILADELPHIA – Each year, taxpayers’ personal information is compromised through phishing scams or by unscrupulous tax preparers. With tax season kicking off on Jan. 24, IRS Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) wants taxpayers to be aware of tax-related fraud. “Tax return preparers owe it to their clients to prepare tax returns that are complete, accurate and in compliance with the law,” said IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Yury Kruty. “Unfortunately, every tax filing season, we see tax return preparers who lie and cheat for a quick buck at the expense of their clients.” Tips to avoid tax season fraud include: Choose a tax preparer wisely. Look for a preparer who is available year-round. 2. Ask your tax preparer for their IRS Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). All paid preparers are required to have one.

CNB Books: Enemy Within the Gates: The Secret Cabal and the Destruction of The Wes

United Kingdom – There was no better time for Tony Ankers to release ‘Enemy Within the Gates: The Secret Cabal and the Destruction of The West’.

But as Ankers knows, it’s yet another fabrication on the part of a secret cabal that has been controlling humanity for over a century. While it might initially sound far-fetched, Ankers presents his findings with fact, unambiguous evidence, over 1,000 footnotes, and over two decades of trying to prove himself wrong. “I lived in the US for many years, leaving in 2012 at a time when social discord had never been higher, and many felt their own Government didn’t support them,” explains the author. “And they are absolutely right.

The Mystery Consumer Suggests: Lunch at Capital Grille, Cherry Hill Mall

The Mystery Consumer | CNBNewsnet CHERRY HILL NJ--This is a well-kept secret. Most people think that Capital Grille is expensive, and for dinner it can get pricey, but lunch is a real deal. First, there’s free valet parking. Just drive up to the stand. Lunch prices are in effect until 4PM. You will find it far less crowded that just about any other dining establishment at the Mall. Capital Grille is located just to the left of the Nordstrom’s entrance to the Mall. The food is excellent and the servers are attentive.

The Mystery Consumer Suggests: aenigma Jewelry and Accessories

– and not just for women, MC says (856)833-9200 aenigma is far more than just jewelry. It’s located at 6 Powell Lane in Collingswood, right off Haddon Avenue, just past Collings Avenue. Powell Lane is the street where the large vertical sign for “The Lumberyard” residences is located.

A better bet is to park just across Collings Avenue in the Speedline parking lot or in the municipal parking lot adjacent to it. Caution: the meters have to be fed until 9 PM. Mrs. MC has shopped at aenigma on many occasions, finding interesting items for herself, or on the most recent occasion, to find a distinctive gift for a friend’s birthday. aenigma is not just for women either.

The Mystery Consumer Suggests: Duffy's Candies of Gloucester City...and Now Haddonfield!

Written By The Mystery Consumer Tradition is a wonderful thing, and Duffy's stands tall. For ninety years, Duffy's has provided excellent chocolates at their original location at 29 N. Broadway in Gloucester City. That location also carries delicious gummy spearmint leaves and orange slices. Love the spearmint leaves. Going toward Camden on Broadway, park your car just past the traffic light at Monmouth Street and cross over Broadway and you'll spot it easily, not as easily if you were driving and looking for it, because it's easy to drive right by - and that would be a shame. Duffy's is a family owned business and a Gloucester City tradition, one of the City's oldest businesses. They are renowned for their "Irish Potatoes" which they sell a ton of around St. Patrick's Day. If you're a Gloucester resident, and haven't been to Duffy's - and there are actually some who haven't... Read more →

Chincoteague's 90th Annual Pony Swim will be held this year on July 29 (photo credit Chincoteague website) by The Mystery Consumer Chincoteague, Virginia (’s a vacation destination that’s not too far, but far enough to feel like you’re out of the local orbit. It’s about 3 ½ hours from South Jersey. We’ve visited there four times, once in December. It’s a small, quiet town with a “Main Street” that has several restaurants and shops. The best on the street I think is Bill’s, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. In our six day stay recently, we ate three meals there. It’s a cozy place with wooden booths and tables, a nice menu, good quality, and a friendly atmosphere. It’s open year round. I asked a gentleman there who appeared to be in charge if he were Bill. He said, “I’m Ken, but I’m Bill.” On the night we went to... Read more →

The Mystery Consumer Suggests Indeblue Indian Cuisine |

Indeblue Indian Cuisine 619 Collings Avenue Collingswood, NJ 08107 856.854.4633 Lunch, Sunday Brunch, and Dinner COLLINGSWOOD NJ ( just off the White Horse Pike, Indeblue offers excellent food. There is also outside dining on their front deck. My wife and I have eaten here many times and enjoyed it. Often when suggesting an Indian restaurant to others, the response can be “I don’t like Indian food.” But there is enough on their menu for simple tastes, and all dishes can be served with mild, medium or hot spices. The serving staff is very helpful in making suggestions and explaining various dishes. That’s good because some of the names are tongue-twisters! Their soups are tasty. For starters, I’d recommend the Crispy Spinach, Naan Pizza, and also their lentils. One of my favorite entrees is the Mixed Grille, which provides a nice sampling of various entrees. There are also many items cooked... Read more →
