The Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce is putting out an alert, that scammers are trying to take you for a ride while claiming to be affiliated with the organization.

Chamber officials say a scammer has created a fake website and phone number to imitate the chamber.

They say the crooks are trying to convince members to buy ads from a non-existent publication.

The website looks professional, and when you call the number, it’s just a voice mail greeting, stating the chamber’s name.

Chamber President and CEO Henry Florsheim says they will never solicit over the phone for a new program, without putting the information out about it first.

The chamber has already contacted law enforcement, to try to shut down the scam.
