NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS

CREDIT CARD

SCAM

Currently there is a credit

card scam occurring. It

seems to have hit the

northwest. The scam

artists we believe are not

local people. In fact, they

may be calling from

anywhere in the world.

The scam artists are

locating and calling

phone numbers listed

within online newspaper

classified

advertisements. They

falsely identify

themselves as being

employees of the local

newspaper publication.

Once they have falsely

identified themselves

they claim that they are

calling to collect money

for the recently placed

advertisement. They

then ask for your credit

card information over the

phone.

PLEASE DO NOT GIVE

OUT YOUR PERSONAL

CREDIT CARD

INFORMATION!

Once the scam artists

have the information

your credit card has

been compromised.

They can then use your

credit card information to

make purchases.

If you are called by

someone claiming to be

an employee collecting

for the newspaper please

hang up and call us

directly for verification at

503-623-2373.

THANK YOU
