Possible scam targets Pauls Valley businesses

PAULS VALLEY, Okla. (KXII) - Pauls Valley Police Chief Mitch McGill says someone is calling businesses claiming to be affiliated with the Pauls Valley Chamber of Commerce trying to sell discounted ads for a catalog.

The Chamber of Commerce says they are not making these calls, and the chamber actually reported it to police.

"What we urge is if you get a call from someone saying they're with the chamber of commerce, is either call the police department, or hang up and just call the chamber at their phone number." McGill said. "That way you know who you're talking to."

Police have been unable to get a hold of the caller, but say they identify themselves as M&S Empire Design, from Clayburn, Texas.

McGill says if this is a scam, they will pursue charges.
