Batesville, In. — A question to the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce has led to the discovery of a scam. The invoice for $345.50 was from County Connection Marketing in Hurst, Texas for advertising.
Workers at the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce were able to protect the local business and determine the scam has been reported in Tennessee, Michigan, Texas and Indiana.
Executive director of the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce Anna Ibold says, “If an invoice for chamber activities is sent it will originate from the Batesville address, and if another company is ever used it would be a local business.”
