SCAM ALERT


We have been notified by a local small business retailer that an individual came in to their storefront yesterday (Jan. 2) near closing time to make a large purchase on an American Express card. The transaction didn't originally process, but the individual called the "company" to receive an approval code that showed that the transaction processed, however the money was never transferred.

If you have had any similar encounters, please contact the Morton Police Department.

For tips and warning signs about protecting your business from credit card fraud, and education you can share with your staff, we recommend reviewing these articles. (1, 2)
