Phone Scammers Wrongfully Claim Chamber Affiliation

BY MELANIE BUCK –

Another scam is making its way through the county, with this one looping in the Mena/Polk County Chamber of Commerce, much like one a few weeks back that affiliated themselves with the Mena Police Department, although there is no connection between the caller and local businesses.

This latest in a mountain of phone scams that plague phone users on a daily basis, begins with a caller stating they represent Mass Marketing, Inc., and are selling advertisements for a map of the local area that is allegedly being produced in conjunction with the Mena/Polk County Chamber of Commerce.

Ashley Smith, Director of the Chamber, said there is no affiliation with Mass Marketing, Inc., and the Chamber is not producing a map at this time. Smith says if you receive this call and have additional questions or concerns, contact her at the Chamber Office, 479-394-2912.
