Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce President Michele Burgess reminded members Friday to ignore potentially spam emails.
Be especially careful at this time due to the fact that the subject line of an email going around right now is misleading about the Chamber itself.
Burgess wrote to members, including WIZS Radio, in a legitimate email and said, “Several of our business members reached out to me yesterday afternoon to report a strange email they received … (The sender) was asking our business owners if they were interested in purchasing our Chamber of Commerce professional contacts for your sales, marketing, and promotional activities.”
Burgess said, “This is a scam!
“The Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce would never sell your business contact information to a third party for any reason. I am working to now to try to track down this person and her company to warn her to stop using our Chamber of Commerce name in her company marketing.”
Delete the email.
Burgess can be reached for additional details or if you have more you can report to her. Call 438-8414 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
