Jeers to ad-sale scammers

Email News Alerts

Jeers to out-of-state scammers who sell ads by misleading local businesses.

The latest example is a company out of Illinois that is calling local businesses and using high-pressure tactics trying to sell ads in a product they call the “Becker County Guide.”


They apparently have a copy of this newspaper’s Guide to Becker County and are targeting businesses that advertised last year, trying to mislead them into thinking they are again advertising in the local product.
