Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce cautions Island businesses

0

The Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce Wednesday issued a consumer alert about recent telephone solicitations of Island businesses.

Businesses have reported receiving phone calls from people claiming to represent the Chamber of Commerce and asking for information to update their listing for the chamber directory. When pressed, the caller might say he is with the American Chamber of Commerce, which does not exist, the chamber said in a press release.

The Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce said that chamber staff will always identify themselves by name on all calls, and suggested that if there is any doubt, business owners and their staff hang up and call the Chamber of Commerce directly at 508-693-0085.
