A new phone scam is currently targeting Creston residents by using the Creston News Advertiser phone number.
According to a Creston resident, the phone scam was a robo-call asking for credit card information. Do not give out any personal information over the phone to these robo-calls.
The calls are in no way associated with the Creston News Advertiser. CNA employees identify themselves over the phone when contacting customers.
“This is another scam that happens. Anymore, it happens all the time, unfortunately,” said CNA Publisher Rich Paulsen. “People need to beware. It’s not only us – they’ve misrepresented lots of other numbers, too.”
