Chamber warns businesses of scam

Sunday, September 13, 2009

SIKESTON -- Businesses should be on alert for a scam.

The Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce said one of its members has reported a company is contacting area businesses to sell advertising. Sterling Publishing is telling members it is producing the official city map, authorized by the SACC.

"This is not true," said Missy Marshall, executive director.

She pointed out that the SACC is currently selling ads for the annual city map for the Sikeston/Miner area, but merchants are being contacted by SACC staff or by mail on official SACC letterhead regarding advertising.

"Sterling Publishing is not an SACC member and is not authorized by the Chamber to publish the SACC annual city map," said Marshall.

Anyone with questions should contact Marshall at 471-2498.
