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
