Chamber warns of advertising scam
The Somerset County Chamber of Commerce is alerting people about a scam happening in the region.
Ron Aldom, director, said someone identifying themselves on the phone as being from Hometown Productions is seeking money for advertisements on a local map.
“It’s absolutely not endorsed by the chamber or any county agency,” he said.
An online search produced links about scams involving that company name.
Aldom recommended hanging up if you receive a call from Hometown Productions. It’s not a legitimate project for Somerset County.
