Recently several businesses in the area have been receiving sales calls regarding sales of an ad placement on a magnet. The caller is stating that they’re working with the Taylorville Chamber of Commerce and with the local Police and Fire Departments. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Taylorville Chamber wanted everyone to know that these calls are a scam.
Hornbuckle stated the Chamber wasn’t sure who was making these calls, and that the Chamber is diligent about letting the public know about events they’re doing.
The Taylorville Chamber also stated that whoever is making these calls are skipping all of the necessary steps including asking for permission or filing for the proper permits to conduct business honestly.
