Advertising Scam in Area

E-Blast from the Chamber of Commerce

Yesterday, the Chamber received a phone call from one of our members letting us know they were contacted by an individual claiming to be a consultant for Crawford County and was asking businesses to purchase advertising from her. She was soliciting members from the Chambers website to purchase advertising for magnets.

Crawford County has NOT hired anyone as a consultant to contact Chamber members for advertising. Obviously, this is a scam and not supported by Crawford County or the Chamber.

If you are ever contacted by someone, stating that they are representing the Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce, please contact the Chamber immediately. More than likely it is a scam. If the Chamber would ever partner with any other organization or advertising agent, our members would be notified well in advance and would be given the contact name and reason for the call.
